Ballpark price on this BIG 1960 Blatz sign??

It's too big to haul along, but am thinking of printing a flier offering this Blatz sign when I attend the Kansas show in a couple of weeks. It's 1960, appears to have never been used, but was found in a shed behind an old beer distributor so has rust on a couple of edges. Really pops, and must be close to 4x8, steel with wood frame. I'd have to offer it as pickup at my house only and it barely fit into the long wheelbase minivan I used to have, so not everybody's going to be able to haul it. Any idea what to ask?

It's a beautiful sign but being a local pickup only will limit your market. I would try $300. I am guessing you do not have much into it so hopefully you do not have to worry about getting top dollar.
Focus: Cones and flats from Michigan, South Bend, and Fort Wayne. Foreign cans only if I bought them myself in the country of origin.

It's all about the brand. I'm not sure if Blatz is a big seller, but if that was a Texas or Louisiana (Pearl of Jax for example) sign from the early 60's of that size in that nice of shape, $300 would be a bargain.

Despite it being too large to ship, I would still try ebay so you get exposed to a national audience. If somebody wants it bad enough, they will figure out a way to get it home.
