This comprehensive guide features over 850 color photographs and references to literally thousands of gas pump globes made for all the major oil companies from A-to-M (Amoco through Mobil) and their affiliates. Affiliated oil companies are listed under the major companies to which they are tied. A useful alphabetical cross reference of affiliated companies is provided, helping readers locate the smaller firms. Additionally, the text also guides the reader to an understanding of the different gas pump globe types produced, lists reproduction globes that have been manufactured over the years, and explains how gas pump globes are priced. Finally, values are provided for both the hundreds of globes shown in the photographs and the thousands more that are listed in the text.
Scott Benjamin and Wayne Henderson have been dealing in and collecting gas pump globes for many years. They have also written extensively on this subject.
