Buffalo NY area to ETF

I won this Sylvania: http://www.ebay.com/itm/302271461323

It has that screwball chassis with the 6Y6 driving an RF type HV supply; I've regretted letting a 10 inch tabletop version of this set slip away...

Anyone near Buffalo (Tonawanda, NY actually) that could pick this set up and bring it to the convention in Hilliard for me?

Oh come on now, I wonder who lives there?

I know the guy you bought it from. Tell Allen to give me a ring....I think he's been meaning to get over here anyway. Transport to ETF is no problem

Well I didn't want to come right out and ask you, seemed kinda presumptuous, but if you're willing to transport it, you have my thanks and gratitude. I sent him a message via eBay asking him to get in touch with you.

Thank you Tim!

Why are there so many television collectors in Buffalo?

I think every metropolitan area has a number of collectors, some are just more "visible" than others.

I have dealt with at least 7 collectors in the Metro-Detroit area personally, and I suspect there are many, many more.
