I've been wanting that tin sign that says "you're not paid to think", but I've been holding out for one with corners.  I have 4 others and they all have corners.  There are 4 listings of this sign I want on eBay right now and none of them have corners, just rounded edges.  What's up with this?

[edit] And they're in different packaging too.

I'm pretty sure the one you want only comes in a smaller, "cubicle" size version, where other ones I've seen are bigger.  I could be wrong, but that's just what I've found.

That could be the problem... It may not be made the same size, or with corners.

Yea, RocketUSA came out with two versions of their 'You're Not Paid to Think' tin signs.  The first was part of their original line up of Futurama products and was 1 of 6 different tin signs they produced.  This sign as well as another one proved to be extremely popular and have sold out long time ago.  The remaining 4 tin signs can still be found on eBay and other sources from time to time.
After that, RocketUSA came out with the version of the same sign that is floating around these days.  Basically it is a magnetic memo board and is smaller in size than the original tin signs.

In other words, expect to lay out some cash to get an original version of the "You're Not Paid To Think" tin sign.  I've seen the originals go for quite a lot of money, in the $50-60 range.  It's been a while since I've checked on Ebay so the going rate has probably moved since I last looked.  Good luck obtaining the sign, it's a nice item.

I have the original sign, got it from a regular shop for a regular price before it was "rare". Nice item indeed...

Sure, rub it in why don't you. That and the other tin sign are the only things I am missing in all of my collection.

Imagine, 4 years later, I have the same problem.  I can't find these non-cubicle signs for less than $80.  Has anyone found any helpful links in the last 50 months?

I've found one that just went for about 17 dollars, but I guess that was a less desirable one.....

Oh and I also found this one... but it was closer to 40 shipped.



I'd also want the You're not paid to think one, but haven't seen one so far...

I forgot all about this thread. Reading it back I came off as a bit of an ass in that post further up...
