Even though Sony sold a lot of their TR-63 transistor radios in the US, they don't come up for sale very often. The Sony TR-63 for sale on eBay is at $560 with less than an hour to go:

There was a TR63 sold a week or so ago on the Bay. I guess people have nothing better to do with their money. Praise to the credit cards.

Maybe no cracks or chips, but that one is going to need a LOT of polishing to make it presentable, and some of those scratches may not polish out.
I wouldn't have paid half of that.

I've read that Sony sold about 100,000 TR-63 transistor radios, which had a retail price of $39.95 in 1957. I wonder what happened to all of these radios as you would think more of them would come up for sale on eBay. The plastic used on the Sony TR-63 is rather fragile and perhaps after being dropped a few times, the radio stopped working and then they were discarded.

It's a BIN, and well overpriced. Be interesting to see if it actually sells for what he's asking.

Last year, a seller on eBay had a TR-63 in the original box and sold it at a "Buy Now" price of $19.98. The Tr-63 had a green case, so it is not the one that is currently listed on eBay for $1,100.
