Vintage SPUTNIK Antenna Booster 1950s Space Age Radio



Wow. This is so cool. It's supposed to boost your car radio antenna signal with space age technology.

It's a Sputnik designed, chrome antenna ball you put on your car antenna.

I doubt it really enhanced your radio signal, but it just enhanced this sellers pockets.

It sold for $191 US !!!

    That's silly money - even for something so cool.

  6. I've seen similar small items go for about as much...

    It's crazy, in my opinion. Then again, if all I collected was one type of thing, like Sputnik stuff, I'd plop down serious bucks for a one of a kind item myself. =)

  7. Seems you can use it for more than just boosting your car antenna signal -- it's a nice addition to your hobby room or den!
