It's not for me, but it's for someone that's done me a few very good turns. Gotta help out our TV brethren, y'know?

Shoot me a PM and name your price .

40s to 80s

I will also be at the ETF this year.
Currently interested in things from the 70s and 80s.. including VCR and Betamax...
Preferably working if possible.
Anyone looking to sell, trade, or give away - let me know.

I won't be at the ETF, but if the price is right on that Sansui, or you want to trade for sutf I don't mind letting go we could make a deal.

I'd be interested in buying a 7" Admiral with a wood case if anyone has one.

C'mon guys, offer some stuff up on here....I've got a bunch of cash that I'm afraid will go unspent

The auction page has been updated. There is now a WORKING RESTORED CT-100 up for auction!!!

A couple more things in the Ed Reitan auction too, there's now a model 5 color set going to be available.

I think that's a mistake. I believe the chassis is restored, but the CRT is full of air.

That is my CT-100. Listing corrected to restored chassis...by two of us...and the bulb is bad. It needs a better home. Auction item. And I will include a RCA matchbook from the dealer I got it from. The set was never sold and was a demo in his shop for 50 years in SE PA in a tiny town when I got it. Just as dead then as now. The shop had seen a flood or two and I had to refinish a front piece on the bottom.

I will edit/add to this post with others I am bringing to auction as they fit in the van. An unsold RCA BW 21" blonde metal table top for starters. A Zenith 25" color. A few 40's/50's 10" and some 70's/80's BW little SS portables to come.

Looking for Radios

Hey folks I am looking to pick up a couple of suitcase / lunchbox radios too. Older models that open for maintenance from the back. Rounded edges.
Preferably working or at least easily restorable.
Ones that look like these in shape and age.

I will be at ETF if anyone has some they need to let go.

Getting close!

I'll be getting in on Thursday afternoon (coming from Buffalo), along with BigAudioAl, rodmonster, (coming in from DC/VA) and philtar0079 (coming in from Western NY near the PA border). We plan on just hanging out at the hotel and in town till Friday. We're staying at the Courtyard Marriott in Dublin. Is anyone else getting in early and want to hang out, visit, maybe have a couple drinks or coffee?

Also, things have changed up with the Ed Reitan auction:

TV sets, cameras and other items from Ed Reitan's collection will be auctioned beginning at the 2015 Convention. Each item will have a reserve price (announced at the Convention). They will be in our silent auction, with bids accepted from 8:30 AM until about 6 PM on Saturday, May 2. If the reserve is met, the item will be sold.

If the item does not sell in the Convention silent auction, it will be put in an online auction on this site. The auction will last for about 30 days. Exact closing dates and times will be announced when the online auction begins.

I am interested in 1940s/1950s 7 inch and 10 inch sets. Preferable with good CRTs, but will consider nice condition sets with bad CRTs too. Bring em if you got em!

If I bring home any more consoles I will not be married much longer.
