Four. I just got into this last year and my area isn't exactly an old TV breeding ground. I used to have more but I took in a lot of later-model junk as well.

1. 1988 Zenith model SE5535G console with the 9-516 main module that is in regular use. The original remote was cracked and hardly any of the buttons worked; I just dug out my NOS 1981 Zenith remote and found out that it works with this set.

2. 1978 RCA XL-100 19" set. It's awaiting repairs for a vertical problem that is common to the CTC88.

3. 1973 Zenith Chromacolor 25" console with the 25DC56 chassis and Space Command 500. I'm still waiting to get ahead enough to get good equipment to replace the white safety caps. Ran when last started.

4. 1971 Admiral K20 chassis 25" console. No idea of its health but it's a keeper.

I'm up to 20, not counting my relatively new flat screen that I use every day. Of those 20, 15 of them are on display in my house, the other 5 are in the garage/workshop.

It will take me some effort to count my "collected" TV sets (as opposed to modern, mostly flat-panel sets). I will post a total when I am able to count them.

Hmm, 5 vintage sets and 2 newer sets.
49' GE 805- recapped-works but has HV problem
56' RCA 8" set. Restored and used often
57' GE 14" set with Telechron alarm clock built in on top-unrestored(thinking about selling)
58' RCA 14" Deluxe set- recapped but has issues I couldn't solve
59' Zenith 21" console Space Command 300-still running on original parts! Waiting for recap
newer sets are a 91' Zenith 20" with a green tinted screen and an early 00's Sansui 13" set

I'm counting somewhere around 52 or so? That means, wow, I've cut the collection pretty much in half! I'm aiming on getting it down to around a dozen. Radios had gotten into the 500-600 range at one point, but I've cut them way down as well.

Last count: radios (including collectible-ish SS sets) ~140.
TVs ~30

Add to that audio equipment, and a host of other junk.

Hmm, no wonder I don't find many vintage televisions out there. They've all been snatched! Lol

Yeah, my collection seems to be getting larger as time goes on as well. The problem is that I like combo color sets.
