    Anyone collect vintage Portable CRT TV's ?

    Anyone collect vintage CRT portable TV's ?
    I started to collect vintage portable color tv's.
    I usually get them for free, rescue from garbage or pay very little for them.


    Here's my 1978 Eaton Viking 10" Portable 8761-10C Television a few days ago from the original owner, for FREE !
    It is a thing a beauty ! It also comes with original manuals.
    I think it is a very rare TV because it was sold by a Canadian Company Eaton's.
    It is made in Japan as well.

    I have one of the original Black and White, 12 channel only [no UHF] Sony portables which I bought in Japan in 1963. Complete with fitted luggage type carrying case, leather battery case [and both lead acid batteries] with charger and the original cardboard shipping boxes. Call me a pack rat. I didn't think to pick up the in window auto antenna otherwise I would show this in my 1967 Datsun at car shows.

    These are neat! I really want to find a nice Trinitron to play old video games on.

    Portable would be a bit of a stretch, but I have this Mitsubishi 20" CRT with fancy woodgrain trim and remote control. Weighs an absolute ton.



    I can't find a build date on it, but I'd say early 1980s. Was given to me for free by someone leaving the country, I didn't really need it but I couldn't stand to see it be wasted. Story of my life.

    I've also got a Hitachi K50-E like this, I bought it in a junk shop in the early 90s and I still have it somewhere.



    Took it camping, takes 10 D-Cell batteries I seem to recall. Felt pretty smug being able to watch all the Saturday morning cartoons.

    Here's my 1969 Sony Trinitron model KV-1210U CRT TV. It was one of Sony's first ever Trinitron sets they made. I found this in my local Kijiji Toronto classifieds for $30.00 February 2014. It still works and looks like new ! The picture quality is simply amazing !
    Made in Japan.
    MSRP was $319.95 in 1969

    Bought this Rare Vintage Magnavox 7t5003 Portable TV at an estate sale today for $5 bucks.

    Good cosmetic shape. Anyone know the model year ?
    Cant find any info on the net.
    It looks to be a 9" size screen with plexi plastic cover.
