Comics: Ye Antique Radio Collector
October 1964 Popular Electronics

October 1964 Popular Electronics

October 1964 Popular Electronics Cover - RF CafeTable of Contents

Wax nostalgic about and learn from the history of early electronics. See articles from Popular Electronics, published October 1954 - April 1985. All copyrights are hereby acknowledged.

Here for your almost-Friday enjoyment is a collection of radio-themed comics from a 1964 issue of Popular Electronics magazine. The scenario in the first comic is one that an owner of an antiques store told me happens often with cunning customers. Now that eBay has been around for so long, shop owners, yard/garage sale holders, Craigslist sellers, and even places like Goodwill know what their items are really worth and price accordingly. In fact, about the only things you can find at those venues anymore is utter junk or stuff too big to sell and ship on eBay - like an area rug or a night stand. Every once in a while you'll come across a good deal when the person is not Internet savvy, but not often. We hardly even look anymore.
