RCA 21" Blonde Roundie in LA Area

Hi Guys,

Saw this RCA 21" blonde color set in LA (Dodgers Stadium area).

Beat-up cabinet needs full refinishing, rusty chassis, looks complete & CRT intact, see pictures.

20.00 bucks ends April 3rd.

Not my auction & no connection to seller.

Charles? your turf...

Best Regards

Doug has one of those, his is a "Super" model as well. Too bad it's not a DeLuxe with the better speaker setup.

This is a really beat-up CTC-5, but it looks like the CRT is a 21AXP22A original. The seller's comment is "i wasnt even going to bother placeing this on ebay and just trash it but there might be someone out there thats interested". I am GLAD the seller listed it! Even only for parts, it is worth grabbing. Let's see, I can borrow my company's van at LAX...

I was out at Dodger Stadium yesterday for some event. Could have thrown that CTC-5 in my truck. Alas, no room at the inn for a large set like that.
I'm sure a local L.A. area collector can grab it.

Something tells me he'll be glad he didn't trash it. It will probably bring in at least a few hundred for the CRT alone.

It's actually a nice set that is on the scarce side. It's still in existence, complete and you can get this set working and the price is starting out right.

It is also the same model and finish that is in the Elvis Presley estate that RCA gave him in 1957! Somewhere I have the Parade magazine (Sunday paper insert) that has Elvis and his mother seated in front of it.

That is a great find! Imagine how close it came to the trash as many others will likely become as clearly there are still manypeople that can't imagine something being worth anything.

If only I was closer...

I WOULD try and get this!!

But..CA is OUT of the question for me!!

As it is....I am going to have to give up on that Zenith Emperor in Idaho, I CANNOT get it--andf can't get a ride for it. I will offer it up to someome here--and hopefully--someone will get it.

Surprisingly low end price for a 50's set in a metropolitan area. I wonder what the high bidder's maximum was? I wonder if the 21AXP22 is good?

Probably because it was a train wreck- rusted chassis, damaged convergence assy, cabinet nearly beyond repair...it's a parts set at this point.

It looks restorable to me.
