« on: July 11, 2019, 10:25:33 PM »

When deciding to buy a road sign from eBay, you typically want to find and get the best deal possible. However for this thread, the goal is to find the most expensive road signs.

To start things off:

There was a guy trying to peddle a CA 1 BGS for 55k a short while ago.

I suspect having the State name on those shields is a price driver.  Personally I would be game in the $50-$80 range but youíll never see that on eBay.

I paid $80 for my I-94 shield, which came from eBay. I jumped at it as soon as I saw it because you never find Illinois state named shields on eBay. And youíre right, itís very rare you see any shield, let alone one with the state name, for under $100.
