Neither do I, but to each his own. The picture looks pretty good on it as far as I can tell, especially in the one with the title card.

This is from a collection of Philco Predictas and other philco suitcase TV,s that my brother has been collecting and hording ,this is the last of his estate and all of them need to go.
Could be a good deal for someone local.

Me too, the CRT is worth the asking price.
I suspect it's because it's pick up only, if it was local to me I'd have grabbed it.

Me too. The Princess is one of the best selling models lately. This non-working red one recently sold for over $800!

I wonder if he has a Town & Country ?

I never liked the Predictas much either. Just not my cup of tea. Too "Jetsons - space age" looking for me. I am more a late 40's/early 50's man. Like the furniture, cabinet look.

And I'll wager they wind up going for more than the BIN price.
