I have a box with quite a few tubes from the old days.
Is there still a market for these tubes?
Any particular tubes that are worth more than others?
Is anybody here interested?

Give me a couple of days and I can get some
numbers if anybody has a need.

Generally, tubes tend to bring decent prices if they are tubes that people are looking for. I guess that is kind of a "Mr. Obvious" statement.

A 12AX7 or a 6L6 is going to attract the attention of those into tube guitar amplifiers and tube hi-fi amplifiers. Many mic preamps still being manufactured for recording studios still use the 12AX7.

Any radio receiving or transmitting tubes are going to be popular with those who restore and use old radios. Even hybrid ham radios, like the Kenwood TS-520 or the Yaesu FT-101, which were all solid state except for the driver and RF power amplifier stages, are still popular.

Tubes that were commonly used in TV sets may not be as popular as vintage radio tubes.

They could be quite valuable! Make a list of the tubes and post them! :)
