Street Sign Auction 2023 is your last chance! No more auctions are planned in the future!


The Wildwood Historical Society is excited to allow YOU chances to win authentic street signs from the bayside of the City of Wildwood! These are the last signs the city has replaced, and there are NOT many: only 31 signs are available. That means after this year, you will not have another chance to get a sign. Don’t miss out on owning an authentic piece of Wildwood history!


This eBay auction event will run from May-June 2023, and every day multiple signs will be posted for 10-day duration auctions. Below is a list of signs with starting prices and dates. You can find them on our eBay page (https://www.ebay.com/usr/wildwoodhistoricalsociety1963) -- be sure to mark your calendar for the signs you want. Please follow our eBay store "wildwoodhistoricalsociety1963" and also read our FAQ below!


Note: Double signs that do not sell on the first auction will NOT be relisted as is. Instead, we will break them apart and sell each sign separately at $99 starting bid each.

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?

Unlikely any time soon. The sign replacements are nearly complete in Wildwood. This is likely your last chance to own a Wildwood street sign for a very long time.


  • Are the signs authentic? How old are they?

Yes, all the signs are authentic and stood at intersections for at least 10-15 years. We don't know exactly what year they were put up.


  • How big are the signs?

They vary in size. There is a ruler in every photo on eBay for reference.


  • What condition are the signs in?

Due to the authenticity of the signs, they have experienced years of shore climate weathering and could be faded, rusty, bent, etc. See listing photos for condition of signs. The green signs rub off so be sure to wear gloves or wash hands and keep away from light-colored fabrics.


  • Who makes money from these signs?

Only the nonprofit Wildwood Historical Society makes money from the signs. One hundred percent of the proceeds go to maintaining our history museum and keeping our doors open. The city does not make money from this fundraiser.


  • How did we get these signs?

For the past few years, 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. We are grateful for their generosity.


  • Can you ship my order?

Only single signs will be shipped. Double signs from intersections are FREE pickup only. Pickup location is Wildwood Historical Society, 3907 Pacific Ave in Wildwood, NJ 08260. Pickup during our hours of operation only. To find our hours, visit wildwoodhistoricalmuseum.com. Free parking lot parking. Because these signs are fairly large, if you choose shipping, 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.
