Postwar American Television
Original TV Set Prices
Dear Fellow ETF Members and Friends,
The TV Dinner Club Museum* has installed a new exhibit in Akron, Ohio in a commercial Retro Mall--- The Bomb Shelter**.
We’re hoping to list the original retail prices for some of the sets that the MUSEUM has on display—and asking for your help in doing so.
Below is a partial list (there are 25-ish sets on display).
The bracketed numbers are the pages in Antique Trader Radio and Television – Price guide where a particular set is listed or shown.
Thanks in advance for reading this—
any one who can help with info will be listed in the show program. Any “leads” appreciated 2.
If you know what these sets sold for originally, feel free to contact me via email or phone: firstname.lastname@example.org or 330-434-2509
It’s ok if it’s a set that is almost the same one listed
