Presented for your consideration is this rare 36-inch vintage Flying A Gasoline/San Francisco 49ers metal advertising sign. The circa of the sign is 1952 as it says 1952 TIDE WATER ASSOCIATED OIL CO on the bottom of the sign. The San Francisco 49ers were sponsored by Associated Tidewater Oil Co. This sign would have hung in the old Kezar Stadium.
Ive seen photos of the scoreboard in 1953, and under the clock it says: "Flying A Service". This is only the 2nd 49ers Associated Oil sign I've come across. Don't miss out on this rare piece of 49ers memorabilia with great historical significance. The condition of the sign is fair with aging and scattered rust spots on the front and on the back of sign. There are two metal brackets attached with a chain for hanging.
