Tubes - here is a deal...

Hi all. Recently, I posted an ad about some tubes I recently got and would like to get rid of. This is what I said then:

I am a solid state guy and know very little about tubes. But I rescued a box from the maintenance department of an old manufacturing plant (non-audio) who was throwing them out. They were happy to give them to me as they have no use for them. These are almost all NIB, NOS from the 60s and 70s. Most of the boxes had never been opened until I opened a couple of them to look. Of course the paperboard was brittle and a few of the box tabs broke off.

I am looking to sell these, but being not familiar with tubes, I had to research prices on the internet. I don't know exactly how "real" those prices were, so I set my prices below reasonable, lower end prices I found. I believe my asking prices below are very fair, but am willing to take offers.

Photos will be emailed upon request and if there is a specific photo you want, just ask.​

I have realized that I am very lazy and can live without getting top dollar for these. So here is the deal - I want to sell the entire bunch as a single lot. There are 147 tubes (listed below) and I am looking for $300 for them all. We're talking basically $1.50 per tube!!! And I will pay for UPS Ground shipping out of that.

The first 18 lines are, I think, the more desirable tubes of the bunch. The number after the dash is how many of each type I have.

Please keep in mind that I am doing this SPECIFICALLY because I don't want to mess with selling only a few at a time, so please don't ask me if I would be interested in selling only XXXXXX. Unless you want to pay me $300 for those tubes only, then maybe....

Thanks,
