I agree. If you're going to spend any money on phones, get desirable sets. These off-the-wall and unusual sets can be had later on.

I will admit it has a very definite appeal.  But I've always liked odd office equipment for some reason.

I very much like this phone in all its space age glory.
I am a lineman for the county and I drive the main roads. Searchin' in the sun for another overload.  I hear you singin' in the wires, I can hear you through the whine, and the Witchita Lineman is still on the line.

Does it communicate with the other planets?  It is pretty cool.

I like the phone, but I'm not going to bid on it as there are other phones that I want in my collection first.

Hmm, come to think of it, this store is in my neighborhood, but I discovered it before I got into vintage phones.  I'll go by there tomorrow to see if they have inter-planetary phones:

I can imagine that second phone talking to you when it's someone you don't want to talk to... "Danger Will Robinson...."

Perhaps it's a small Mom and Pop bricks and mortar store jobbie that specializes in modest space travel?
