Announcing the 2020 Wildwood street sign auction!

Updated: Aug 12

The Wildwood Historical Society is excited to allow our supporters another chance to win authentic street signs from the City of Wildwood! The city has been replacing its old signs and very generously passing the old ones on to us as a fundraiser for our nonprofit's mission of preserving Wildwoods history.


This eBay auction event will run from June 25-August 16, and every day a different sign will be posted for a seven-day duration auction. Below is a list of signs with starting prices and dates you can find them on our eBay page -- be sure to mark your calendar for the signs you like. Please follow our eBay store "wildwoodhistoricalsociety1963" and also read our FAQ below!


Nearly all signs will be sold with both street intersections attached with the original hardware, unless otherwise noted. No reserves.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • Do you have signs for North Wildwood, Wildwood Crest or West Wildwood?

No, we only have SELECT signs from the City of Wildwood. See the list above for what's available.

  • Do you have signs that aren't listed above?

No, all the signs we have are listed above. We have done a thorough inventory and know exactly what we have. If it's not listed, we don't have it.

  • Will more signs be available in the future?

It is possible, but we don't know for sure. We also don't know what signs the city still plans to replace. The new signs are green and the old ones are white.

  • Are the signs authentic? How old are they?

Yes, all the signs are authentic and stood at intersections for at least 20 years. We don't know exactly what year they were put up.

  • Can you ship my order?

Pickup at our museum is preferred. Our hours and address are listed at the bottom of our website. Because these signs are fairly large, it is very expensive and difficult to ship them. If pickup isn't an option, we reserve the right to delay shipping until we find a box that your sign will fit in. It may take over a week to ship.
