Rare 1948 "Gridiron" Football Radio


RETIREMENT SALE!!! EVERYTHING MUST GO - CHECK OUT OUR OTHER ITEMS. Made by Empire of Texas, a small radio company in Amarillo Texas, these are some of the most difficult to find today. Cast in metal, and named the "Gridiron" radio, they were only made for a couple of years. Needless to say, they are very popular with any sports fan or radio enthusiast, and are the perfect item for any "man cave" or game room. The radio has been serviced, and works great (am only). The paint is original, with a few touch ups in the red base. It displays very well and will be a hit on any super bowl Sunday!
