Since the release of the films, GotG has also caused a price increase in an older form of technology, the Sony Walkman TPS-L2. Making its debut in Japan in 1979, the Sony TPS-L2 — the Star-Lord’s favorite entertainment device — marked the first portable personal cassette player that was ever released at the time.

Now thanks to fan interest on the TPS-L2, you can head to eBay to purchase for approximately $200 USD.
