"To all you people trying to sell CRT /tube tv's. THEY ARE NEARLY WORTHLESS. Even the biggest nicest Sony tube tv is Only worth about $50 if that. Think about it. Would you pay someone to let you lift and haul Their 75-150lb tv around? So stop asking $100-250 for a 100lb burden.
it's NOT ok to contact this poster with services or other commercial interests

He's right, of course. Places like Goodwill or Salvation Army generally won't take old CRT sets. Virtually no one wants them. The big ones are 200+ pound boat anchors, and you can buy the equivalent-sized flat panel model with decent quality for around $250 -- and carry it around with one hand.
