Looking for the Cardon/Sparton tubes for my Sparton Model 870 radio. This also has the AC chassis. I am listing the required quantities next to each number. The numbers in parentheses are the socket markings that may include equivalent tube numbers.

I am looking for a copy of the Hickok Cardmatic place holder card. It is the one with a young lady looking over her shoulder and asking for help lacing up her ?corset?. The message is “Please Help Tuck Me In” and I believe the original cards were yellow with black type. There were many reproductions on other colors of materials and I would be interested in one of them if the quality of the copy is as good as the original. If someone has one they would do a high quality copy of, 600 dpi or better, in color or black and white that would also be acceptable. I would pay in whatever manner the seller would desire. Thanks in advance for any help you can give me and anyone can contact me at sqs@adams.net Dave Westenfeld, Quincy IL.
