Guess it's been there for quite a while, I just hadn't noticed it before.  I looked at several of the tubes and saw that the addresses listed on the boxes contained no ZIP codes, so I figure that a good part if not all of these tubes are vintage items from back in the '50s or '60s.  I have no idea what prices they have on these items as most of the stuff is unmarked, but I know from buying other items there, their prices are usually pretty reasonable.  If anyone has any needs of vintage vacuum tubes, contact me off list and I be glad to check on them for you.  I saw RCA, GE, and Sylvania there to mention a few and I believe most were for TVs and Radios, but who knows what else I may find there.  I'm not an electronics person so I 
don't know what distinguishes one tube type from another.  Let me know if I can be of help to anyone out there.
