Today's last ad is in the Other Vintage ads gallery, a Sunday, 10/23/77 ad for RCA SelectaVision VCRs at Lasalle's. My first VCR was an RCA SelectaVision. It was very heavy (compared to future VCRs) and had a corded remote pause control. November 1977 ads from the online archives of The Toledo Blade, are on the way...
