Global GR-900

Global GR-900

This is an early nine-transistor shirt pocket radio made in Japan. It features a big and bold reverse painted front tuning window and styling typical of this early era of transistors. This radio and its matching case look unused. When a common 9 volt battery is inserted, it sounds like new too. No detractors on this one, collectors! Don't miss out!  $325.00. (0520526)


Realtone TR-1088 "Comet" (Japan, 1960)

Realtone TR-1088 "Comet" (Japan, 1960)

Here is a beautiful little Realtone made in 1960. This stylish model is one of the iconic transistors that came out of Japan during the time when it was all about color and design. This eight-transistor was advertised as being powerful because most other pocket radios made during this time were only six transistors. This one plays pretty good on a common 9 volt battery. But more importantly, the cosmetics are fantastic: no chips or cracks or wear spots.  $245.00. (0520515)


Miss Liberty Transistor (Japan)

Miss Liberty Transistor (Japan)

This is a sharp looking replica of the Statue of Liberty that is also a transistor radio. The statue is in real nice shape and the radio plays well on a common 9 volt battery. This radio was marketed by Radio Shack and the label says that some of the proceeds went to a restoration fund for this landmark on Ellis Island. 11"H.  $24.00. (0520512)

It is my mission to offer for sale to the radio collecting world top quality collectable transistor radios that are clean, functional, and highly desirable. Before listing any radio, I take measures to assure each one reaches a high level of cleanliness and performance before it is listed. I also will give you an honest description of what you are buying so that you can judge the value before you make that purchase.

Living up to my mission statement is how I have been able to sell almost 300 transistor radios in my seven years on the attic.  My customers are generally those who desire high quality and know that by dealing with me, you don't waste money on disappointments and by being burned on auctions and dealing with novice sellers. And I will continue to offer a money back guarantee if for some reason you are not satisfied because I want you to love your radio, or I am not happy either.

Thank you to all of my previous buyers for helping to make Gary Ball's Transistor Radio Attic a success. I pledge to continue to offer the same high standards you have come to expect.
