Talk about shelling out some serious cash for a piece of nostalgia, someone on eBay just purchased an original Apple I signed by Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak for a whopping 18 grand. And according to the seller, he’s not even sure that it still works!
The eBay product description notes:
I do not know if it is functional and I do not intend to power it up. If a trace on the board were to burn up due to a shorted component, it would radically decrease its value as an historical artifact and as, in my mind, a work of art (signed by the artist!). A few of the chips were missing when I purchased it and they have been replaced with the proper ones, although dated a year or two later, in some cases.
Whatever floats your boat, I guess.
