When I find a good product, I like to spread the word. This seller makes banners, license plates, and hitch covers in a bunch of GT logos. I bought a couple of his smaller banners, one large banner, and a license plate. He was good to deal with and I'm very pleased with the quality. He carries quite a few different tractor brand logos and also a ton of vintage snowmobile logos.

I think it's very misleading to title an eBay ad with "Vintage" when it's not, then add in the comments "You are bidding on a new replica reproduction Cub Cadet International Lawn & Garden Tractor banner."

Nice banner, though. I'd like to have one hanging in my garage.

I agree also. I don't believe he had that on his listings back when I purchased from him. If so, I totally missed it.

I like the sign and saw the reproduction representation right away. Nothing deceptive now. Maybe there was a problem before. If I were interested, Jim says he's great to deal with, so that would be enough for me. I might go see what else he has. Thanks Maynard.

I checked out his actual website and it has contact info so I talked to him about doing a GT brand he doesn't currently handle. I never really followed up with the idea and we never got to the pricing stage but he was pretty open to producing custom stuff. He's got a real brick and mortar sign / graphics business (at least I got that impression) and apparently is into vintage sleds. He sells the GT banners, snowmobile banners and drum banners. Like I said, I'm happy with the quality as the banner material is decent thickness with grommets. The graphics are smooth and not blocky like when you try to blow up an image too big. I can take some close up pics if anyone likes. Just a note on the license plates, though. They're smooth plastic, not metal, but it hasn't been a problem for me.

We had a payment problem on my transaction and it turned out to be something Paypal related on his end, so I did get a chance to see how he handled customer service issues. I had no problem with how he handled it.

If you haven't checked out his Ebay store, he has a LOT of different tractor brands. Also, he has had decent sales on the banners, at least there was when I purchased.
