    "This photo is of my own set, this is an MU-1 from late 1926, and was in my opinion the pinnacle of the Synchrophase. This set is completely original, with original dark mahogany finish and in the finest working condition. This says a great deal about Grebe's quality, as this set has had NO replacement parts since it was made." -David P. Whistler

    With the upcoming Baseball World Series in 1925, what better way to promote the need to have a radio in your own home than to be able to hear the game "play by play" as if you were sitting in the stands!
    For Baseball Buffs: The result in the 1925 World Series was: Winner - Pittsburgh N.L., Loser - Washington A.L., Games 4-3.
