Volume 11, Number 3

The RCA “Selling Fool” doll, a retailer display aid designed ca. 1926 by the major cover/commercial artist Maxfield Parrish. The “Fool” replaced the “Radiotron Man” figure as seen on the Feb. cover, although Web postings about the doll often use the “Radiotron” name. RCA’s $5 price for a quqetet of dolls is ironic – this is pretty much a $1000 part today.
