Here are the changes:

Added the latest web only models from radioshack.com
Added US catalog and page numbers,  batteries, levels of play
Added part numbers for some replacement pieces
Many corrections to release dates and catalog prices
Added European Version Tandy 1650 Fast Response Time (thanks bobosse)
Updated the photo for Radio Shack Model 92029 Sakar Mini Chess Master
Added box photo for Radio Shack 2050X Mega Chess (from eBay)
Added box & price ($69.99) to 60-2428A 1680X Chess Partner (from eBay)

Thanks again for Alain for the link to the Radio Shack Catalog web site.

Best regards,
Marko

Same model number -  but different brand name: Tandy instead of Radio Shack


Hello bobosse,

Many thanks for the info and the link to the photo. I'll add it to the spreadsheet.

Best regards,
Marko

Nice work Marko!


Thanks Zardoz. The spreadsheet still has a lot of holes. Any help with finding better box photos, original list prices or ELO ratings would be deeply appreciated. Also, the thumbnail photos can be enlarged to their original size by selecting the photo, right-clicking and then selecting "Format Picture" then "Size" and click "Reset". To get the size back to the thumbnail, set the size to 1 inch.

Best regards,
Marko

Marko,

The following prices are from a 1998 Radio Shack newspaper advertisement insert:

Chess Companion  $39.99
Portable Chess      $49.99
Chess Partner        $69.99
Master 2200X          $99.00
Champion 2250      $169.00 (on sale for $149.99)

No ratings were listed.



Zardoz,
Thanks for listing the prices. Was the Chess Companion model number 60-2216 or 60-2439? Was there a model name or number for the Portable Chess? Many thanks.

Best regards,
Marko


Marko,

The Chess Companion was number 60-2439SJ

There was no model name for the Portable Chess in the advertisement.  It looks to be the 1750L that is pictured on line 32 of your excel worksheet and it has the same model number with extra letters at the end: 60-2444SJ.

In fact, all of the models shown in the advert have the "SJ" at the end of the unit number for some reason unknown to me.

Zardoz,

Great. Thanks for the model numbers.

Best regards,
Marko

I have created  an Excel spreadsheet with the information from the Radio Shack Unit listing Word doc. I have added photos of the units and / or packaging.  Also included are ELO ratings and original list prices. If you have any additions, corrections or comments, please let me know.

Here is the link to the file (about 2 MB in size) on 4shared.com:

TRS_Chess_26Aug2008.xls
