    Based on what Audiogon has listed in the online blue book, $300 is about full blown retail for these. The Model 2 was released in 1977 at a cost of $990.

    They released subsequent models and added an a, b, c etc. to the end.

    Pickings are insanely slim here in the TC area. I haven't had a notable clothing find in over a month.

    Must have been really old or fake. I think I've seen a few poly Talbott ties that looked like they hailed from the late 70's-early 80's.

    ^^^ LOL! That's awesome. Spoo seems to be everywhere. My wife was talking about some orange Chloe pants she won on eBay. When she showed me, it turned out they were from Spoo. [​IMG]

    I was already planning it, but this definitely confirms that I need to get into the city this summer. I'd never find these out in the burbs!

    Today, just a couple things,
    [​IMG]
    Probably the coolest vintage Pendleton I've found to date. High Grade Western Wear, size is marked large, but fits nicely! MOP snaps. N/A

    Some vintage trees and the same exact PRL tie I thrifted yesterday, this time in navy. There was also a rust colored one, but it had some questionable stains on it.

    Super fresh Koss Pro/4A11 headphones. They looked like they had been sitting in someones basement for the last 30 years, but they cleaned up nicely!

    Ummmm, and yea, they work. Muhahahahaha :devil:
    [​IMG]
    And if that wasn't enough, someones ENTIRE collection of funk, soul and disco albums. Herbie Hancock, S.O.S Band, The Emotions, Heatwave, Issac Hayes, Donny Hathaway, etc. 29 albums!!!!!!!

    I found 2 or 3 pairs of the Koss Pro 4AAAs about a year ago at a yardsale, They do the job, and will be gobbled up if you flip them.
