100s of tubes on craigslist

these are in my backyard basically and it seems like it would be a deal but I have no idea what tubes are hard to find or which ones are not worth having.

I feel like I should at least go over to have a look, never know what else the seller has tucked away.

I'll guess lots of Compactrons, 1B3's, Damper Tubes, 1960's TV tubes, Series string TV tubes with odd voltages.
Probably not a 6SN7, 5U4, 6BG6, 6L6, 6V6, 12A*7 in the bunch.

Still possibly worth the price if there are say 200 6GH8's.

Could be worth going and looking at them; if they are limited to what is pictured, I wouldn't pay that price unless there were some more desirable tubes in the lot. (see Eric's post) Remember that series-string TV tubes, even NOS, literally are a dime a dozen.
