Description

This is a beautiful and elaborate instruction manual.

This item came from the family of Jonathan Kostovski, which purchased, in 1977, a Magnavox Television Repair Facility at 722 Madison Avenue, Paterson, New Jersey. At the time of purchase, the facility had been largely vacant for five years, though several garages in the back continued to be used as television repair shops. Today (2019), the building is Blizzard Auto Service, but it was previously Ralston Radiator Company, and before that it was the Magnavox Television Repair Facility. Mr. Kostovski's family writes "When our parents purchased the Repair Facility, it was full of Odyssey 1's and 2's. We have sold off virtually everything since the introduction of Ebay: service center signs, systems, games, ads, manuals, kiosks, prototype carts. We still have the build sheets for the Odyssey 2 if you want to build one." Other archival items from this facility can be found by choosing "Browse Collections" in the left margin, then selecting the "Kostovski Collection."
