My brother and I picked up a 19 inch magnavox and stand that my mother had purchased from Kaufmanns warehouse on the north side the Saturday which was before the Sunday the steelers played their first Super Bowl, January 11, 1975.

Living in an apartment all we had were the built in "rabbit ears".

All I can tell you is that when we turned it on...compared to black and white, it was like that part of the "Wizard of Oz" when it turns from b and w to Technicolor.

The word "amazing" comes to mind!
