1940s Baseball Figural Radio

Starting Bid - $300, Sold For - $1,185

Classic figural baseball radio produced in the early 1940s in the design of an "Official League Baseball." No comprehensive display of baseball-influenced design is complete without this popular standard. The speakers reside inside of the ball and the tuning and volume knobs are on either side. This is by far the finest example of this radio we have ever offered. The radio displays light surface wear, including a small area of abrasion on the reverse, but all of the original graphics remain bold and complete. In Excellent condition overall. As is our policy with older electrical devices we have not plugged the cord into an electrical socket to see if it works (the risk of possible damage outweighs the benefits) but the cord and antenna appear to be in fine condition, with no obvious signs of damage. This is an exceptional example of this highly desirable baseball novelty, and one that is perfect for decoration in either home or office. Reserve $300. Estimate $1,000+. SOLD FOR $1,185
