As Larry Margrave is downsizing, we have the honor of selling his vast radio collection via online auction. Please note, there have been a few additions as well. Larry has been, and still is a long-time member of the Mid-America Antique Radio Club (MAARC) in Kansas City, and has amassed a fantastic collection of radios dating from the early 1920’s though the transistor era.

Included is a large collection of over 30 Hallicrafters receivers, as well as receivers from Hammarlund, Collins, Drake, Heathkit, JRC, Kenwood, Lafayette, National, Ten-Tec, Yaesu and Allied.

Antique radios and consoles include Atwater Kent, American Bosch, Bendix, Crosley, Detrola, Emerson, Firestone, Howard, Minerva, Philco, RCA, Stromberg-Carlson and many others.

There is also a nice selection of transistor and other unusual solid state sets and direction finders just waiting to be a part of your collection!

If you’re looking for tube testers or audio equipment, we have a few items for you as well. A pristine Hickok 6000, B&K Precision 667, Phlico 9200 and a Sencore Mighty Mite VI TC-154 tube tester. As for audio, there is a very nice Denon DVD-3910 player, a Technics SL-D2 turntable and a Monster power conditioner, all in great shape.

There is something for everyone in this sale. Thanks for looking and if you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to ask.

All the best,

A note from the auctioneer: One of my passions in life is collecting, preserving and restoring antique and vintage tube radios and associated equipment of all kinds. Although not an exhaustive list this includes cathedrals, consoles, table radios, shortwave and broadcast receivers, European sets, amateur / ham radios, and audio equipment including tube amplifiers. Over the years, I’ve acquired and sold these wonderful relics of the early wireless era dating back to the 1920’s through the transistor era of the mid to early 1960’s and 70’s.

When I received my ham radio license at the age of 14, over 35 years ago, my mentor at the time, had a wonderful collection chock full of many different types of tube radios and test equipment. I was hooked, and still am today.

Without a doubt, there are many of you who are as excited about preserving and restoring these great pieces as well. The problem is, we need to find a good way to buy and sell with a minimum of hassle, preferably from someone who knows this equipment. Well, that would be me!

As a seller, whether you are a seasoned collector wanting to sell some of your sets to free up some space, or a family member who is trying to liquidate the radio estate of a loved one, I can help you obtain your goals with a very minimum of effort on your part.

As a buyer, you are probably a collector. Do you get tired of dealing with other venues, such as eBay and Craigslist, where sellers don’t always know what they have, the condition it’s in, and what’s been done to a radio? If so, you’ve come to the right place. Most antique collectors I know, want to assemble their own little place in time. Let me help you with yours.

My expertise in the auction business combined with that of my 35 plus years in radio collecting, will give your items the attention to detail they deserve. By utilizing an on-line auction strategy, and tried and true auction marketing techniques, I will market your items or collections to a targeted national as well as local audience. All of this in a timely and cost effective manner.

I’m sure you have questions, so call me today at (816) 455-5520 to discuss your specific needs. I look forward to speaking with you.
