5U4G
6V6GT
6AS7G
6SN7GT x 5
6SG7

I didn't know that Crosley actually made their own tubes. Many radio and TV companies did outside sourcing to cut down manufacturing expenses. I don't think that I have seen a Crosley tube ever; but that doesn't mean they weren't made.

Honestly I don't have any Crosley sets at the moment.

Crosley didn't make their own tubes. RCA manufactured Crosley branded tubes after WWII. It's a nitpicky detail to use Crosley tubes in a Crosley set, but why not be nitpicky if you can.

I have a matched pair of Crosley 6CD6G, destined for a tube amp.

I just might have a lot on your list, John. Drop me an email to my work email and I'll check during the week.
