Classic Walkman from ‘Guardians Of The Galaxy’ now sells for hundreds on eBay

Kris May 9, 2017 Blog, Blog Story Comments Off on Classic Walkman from ‘Guardians Of The Galaxy’ now sells for hundreds on eBay

People keep saying that cassettes are coming back like vinyl has.  Well, if it does this is the reason why – Guardians of the Galaxy.  The classic ‘Sony TPS-L2’ Walkman has skyrocketed in value since the opening weekend of Guardians Vol 2.  Now the average cost is about $200 US.  The walkman used by character Peter Quill (played by Chris Pratt) along with the film soundtracks have become iconic in the franchise.  For upwards of $1000 you might even find one with the original box and original orange foam headphones.

Ironically in 1979 the TPS-L2 was the very first walkman, guess how much it sold for? $200 US.  Times change? but then again not really.
