Pensacola Beach Sign Sold In Four Parts For $45,750 To Highest Bidders

October 23, 2019

The old Pensacola Beach sign sold at auction for a total of $45,750, plus sales tax.

The sign was sold in four separate pieces.

Jim Reeves won the starburst sign auction for $10,000 to be placed at his Pensacola Beach Rv Park. Danny Sloan, owner of Tacky’s, purchased the sailfish sign with letters for $27,000; Frisky Dolphin owner Kevin Hausfield won the sailfish sign without letters auction for $7,250. Tim Buttel of Gulf Breeze won the arrow sign for $1,500.

The funds from the Escambia County auction will help offset the cost of the new Pensacola Beach sign that was installed last month.

    @Terri—I guess you missed the story that these old worn out signs have been replaced with brand new nearly identical ones with newer LED lighting.

    It will be sad for me to go back home and not see this particular sign going to the beach. It is a piece of my childhood that will be missing. I always enjoyed seeing the neon all lit up.
