    I came across some Realistic Mach One 40-4024A that were in storage and have never been used, in seemingly perfect condition.
    Still in the original boxes with the paper wrapping and even have the 'oiled walnut veneer' stickers attached.

    I was curious what something like this might be worth today.

    Thanks

    Hard telling, NIB speakers will bring a premium, they could go for as little as $300.00 or as high as 1k on Ebay maybe even more I have seen crazier things :yes:

    I am guessing $650.00

    That's pretty darn cool.
    I paid $250 for the Mach Ones I used to have. They were in pristine condition. I overpaid judging by the market, but I wanted them and I was willing to pay what I did.
    When I sold them I only got $125 for them because I was only willing to sell locally.
    Having the original boxes will be a big deal not only for collector's value, but for shipping.
    I tend to agree that somewhere in the ~$650 or even a bit more makes sense

    I got $60 for my pair of 4024's a couple months ago. They weren't mint like the ones shown but they were in decent shape. Those mach 1's are in excellent shape for sure but they won't bring $650 here in New England:no:.

    I think the only way they'll bring big buck is on the large stage of that auction site.
    Here in SW VA, you'd get $200 if you were really, REALLY lucky

    Ebay is the place, offer international shipping and you will see what will happen, I am sure they won't go for cheap.

    When I was a kid I would go with my parents shopping every time they went to Payless so I could hang out at the Radio Shack in the same strip mall. That picture the OP posted brings me right back. Oh how I lusted after those speakers!

    Years later when I was in my early 20's I heard a set at a party and they sounded like crap so I never gave them a second thought.. but I'm sure they weren't set up right or something was wrong with them given the praise I keep reading about them here.

    You should contact Radio Shack corporate and sell it to them for their next commercial!

    Nice score :)

    I love mine. But, both woofers need refoam now before I can use them again.

    I'd love to get a new set.
