Well, I'll be darned! I wonder where he found it? Hope it wasn't in my backyard!

That has happened before... Another LA collector found a mint CT-100 in a printing store in Chatsworth, CA in the early 2000s. They had no idea what it was. The store owner had inherited the set from a relative, hauled it to the store, and put an ad in the local paper "Big old RCA TV not working $100". I picked it up for the collector who found it, and was quite envious!

Saved by the bell! To quote the finder:

"I liked the cabinet and was going to junk it out to make something out of the cabinet"

(shudder)

We tend to forget how little the average Joe knows about old TVs. I have had visitors stare at my pedestal Predicta and ask, "What the heck is that?"

People see my little collection & think it's either 1) Really neat, or 2) I'm Mad, or 3) a little of both..
