Hey there, I'm selling one piece of my collection. (2 kids small house & other priorities etc etc)

At present I have the Tasma on ebay but am not sure if that's the best place. I may pull the Ad tomorrow night before the auction ends if it doesn't get closer to what I think the radio is worth.


I'm hoping for around $275 - $300 - please let me know if you think I'm being unrealistic. Or please bid if you are interested.

Hi Tony, you will get what the market dictates on that particular day, it is an auction. The local pickup for the large models always reduces your audience.
Good luck, nice old radio.

Starting or reserve price should be used if you have a minimum acceptable selling price in mind.

Very nice radio. I've had it on watch for a few days now mainly out of curiosity. Brands like Tasma and Essanay can fetch higher prices but balancing that out is as Airzone said - most collectors steer clear of consoles and radiograms because they consume a lot of room and these days 'the battleaxe' has more authority around the home. Because of the comparitive lack of competition, such receivers seldom attract high prices. If you get the price you are expecting then you will be doing well, very well, even for the model you want to sell. Despite this being a good radio, $100-$150 is a realistic result.
