Annual Appeal: Come Get Some of My Sets!

I haven't begged in a while, so here I go: a bunch of my collection needs to go. No, I'm not in trouble (financial or otherwise), I just have too many TV's and radios. IMPORTANT! I will not ship any of these. Oh, I may tell you I'll try and get a price together for you but I've learned this about myself, I'm just not going to ever get around to doing it! So, plan a roadtrip. I'm not in the middle of nowhere, just the middle of the Delmarva peninsula. (okay, some might say that's the same thing!) Some prices more negotiable than others, quantity discounts may apply, etc, etc.

Color roundies:
CTC-11, woodgrain metal floor model easily convertible to table model. Working, needs a minor repair, crt is just so-so. $200
CTC-12, wood/masonite console. Working, crt is fair, has had cataract surgery. $200
CTC-15, actually one of my favorite sets with a nice wood cabinet. Good crt, has had surgery, works well. Not in a rush to sell, but $250 will take it.

Color rectangular:
Sylvania 23v, gray metal cabinet, missing original tuner cluster. I have had it working somewhat. Good crt. $20
RCA 23v console, can't remember for sure but I think it's a CTC-25. I've had this halfway working but then something in the HV went kerplewey. This could be a nice one. $40
Zenith 23v console, about '70 or '71. Worked as found, could use a once-over. Cabinet just fair. Given to me by a friend, whose parents bought it new. I would give this to someone for free, provided it went to very good home.
Airline 23v combo, built by Muntz. Working but will need lots of tweaking. A monster, cabinet fair. $20
DuMont 23v wood table model, among the last Emerson built sets. Very low hours, works well. Another set I'm not in a hurry to get rid of. Might take a nicely engraved print of Ben Franklin in exchange for it.

Smaller color sets:
Lots of hybrids including 12" from Wards & Sears, 15" RCA, 18" RCA & GE, a couple 19" 4-tube Zeniths, a 19" System 3. Prices range from free to around $20 or so. Nice Sylvania 21" table model, good picture, needs minor repair, $40 would be nice. Motorola 21" tube color set, cabinet kinda rough, works. $35

Early B/W:
GE Locomotive with rough cabinet, pretty sure the crt tested good. $65
Pair of late 50s Zenith portables, one recapped and working for $50, the other untested for $35
RCA 8-T-243, decent crt, otherwise untested, no knobs. $65
Philco Seventeener, cabinet a little rough, not a Predicta donor. Very cheap.
Admiral 10" bakelite console, good overall but has a scratch across the top. Was working well but didn't come up when I tried it the other day. $250
Admiral 12" wood console, untested, $50
Admiral bakelite table model, rectangular around 15", works decent, cabinet very scratched. $35
Andrea 16" bw roundie console, cabinet needs refinishing, works. $40
Philco 16" bw roundie metal table model from '51, works well. $80
Zenith 12" porthole without cabinet, good all glass crt. $50
Emerson 21" table model, rough cabinet, works, crt is shot but a good used one will be included, $30
Zenith 21" Space Command console from late 50s, worked last time I tried it. CRT may be on the soft side but I'm not sure. Comes with remote but the wrong one (still works, though). $45
Zenith 21" Flash Matic, nice cabinet, good replacement crt, works decently. Includes remote-I know these sell big on ebay so if you want it you MUST take it all. NOT cheap, ask if serious.
Sylvania Halolite, c.1953, blonde console, untested. Does have a good light. $50
Zenith console from around 1970, works, needs vertical tweaking, $30.
Magnavox 19" bw portable from mid-70s, solid state, needs caps. Cheap.

Show up and I'll probably find more stuff. Also tons of radios. If you're serious about driving over here, drop me a line.

I have an awesome co-worker who owns a beach-house that might be in your vicinity during his trips to and from... I honestly don't remember if he's out on the peninsula or the mainland, though. I'll be asking him tomorrow for sure! I don't see anything Motorola B&W on your list... Are there some in hiding by chance? The Zenith porthole interests me, if my co-worker does pass nearby.

That made by Muntz for Airline / Monty Ward color unit scares me to the very core of my being! Someone far braver or more masochistic than I am can have that one.

Have you thought about posting pics of each set you want to sell? There are people like me who are willing to hire a mover to relocate.. Sounds like you have stuff I may want.. But I can't tell without pics..

I've posted photos in my previous ads; many of these sets are shown somewhere buried on VK, but I will try to get some new pics up. So many of them that it's a lot of work.

No Pegs, I don't have any bw Motos right now. I do get up your way a few times a year.

If that 12" sears/wards color is tube and Japanese made I'd be very tempted to try and arrange some kind of shipping...Perhaps it could be dropped off somewhere that could crate it for you.

It probably would be best to host your pics on photo bucket and link them from here.. I believe there is an external image link html code option that will view the external linked pics in the post.. Then create a copy of the original post in case you decide to repost again, and edit out what has been sold.. That would be the best way..

The set could be carefully boxed and shipped safely. It's only a little heavier than a Porta-Color. It's probably a Toshiba built model.
I had some real high quotes for packing and shipping, most a lot more than the value of the item.

Yes, I believe the Sears is a Toshiba. Works, previous owner was a heavy smoker so it might smell a little when warmed up? (at least I don't think he owned it very long) The Airlines are Taiwanese Admirals, as I recall. One is pretty rough. I've shipped a portacolor before, and lots of other heavy/awkward stuff. What has burnt me on it is spending over an hour dragging out the biggest box I've got, and big bundles of bubble wrap, then the right size secondary box, and trying to get it all together the right size, then finding out the thing is oversize, or will cost twice as much as the potential buyer wants to spend. I just don't feel like doing that right now. But, if somebody really wanted me to I could get a set to a pack and ship place. I did that once, worst thing about it was I had to hang around for the better part of an hour while they confirmed everything. I'd read good things about shipping through Fastenal, and that might be a good option.

I do have a lot of photos on photobucket, they just need organizing. Editing pics on that site just seems so bulky, even though my connection is pretty decent.

Happen to have any CTC-68 XL-100 sets lying around? Either working or not. Maybe if you do I can beg Al to bring something back for me

I don't understand, you have tried to give away two of them a few times.

I'll be stoked to get my CTC-88 XL-100 working properly, it's almost mint other than the vertical problem. I should finally have the stuff to fix my 70s sets by later next month.

Yep, and I fell back in love with them, so I'm keeping em and wouldn't mind finding some extra spare parts. Nyah

Sounds good to me. I gave away things long ago that I ended up wanting back, not much though. I've since replaced one of those things.
