a collection of Apple British and Canadian Olympics lapel pins

These brand new, limited edition authentic Apple Olympic enamel pins were designed by Apple Inc. to promote the Vancouver 2010 Olympic Games. The pins were only available at the Vancouver Apple store and they were not available for sale anywhere. The white cardboard backed pin set includes two metal 19mm x 19mm (3/4" by 3/4") pins in original packaging: one is a Canadian maple leaf and the other is the Apple logo and both are designed as App icons. There is one single pin on an Olympic card. The pins not on white cardboard are iPod Nano style pins, also in original packaging and measure 17mm x 38mm (5/8" x 1-1/2"). The backs have ™2010 Apple, Inc. All shown have a butterfly clasp.

There are 26 unused unopened 2010 pins with a value of $25 each - total listed price  would be $650 but the quantity purchase of all the CDN pins shown would lower that to $425. All 26 are available as a set postage paid.

The bottom row on the right side shows a brand new authentic Apple iPad Olympic pin designed by Apple Inc. to promote the London 2012 Summer Olympic Games. These 3 pins were issued in the UK on 8 July, the first day of the London 2012 Olympics, and only in very limited numbers. They were hard to get then and are highly collectible now.

The design is of an iPad, with the Union Jack flag filling the entire screen. The enamel pin badge is on a presentation card in the factory sealed plastic envelope. The Apple logo and details are printed on the back of the card. It has a butterfly clasp and is new and unopened. The list price is $45.

For sale also in the UK set are two new individual pins not on cards: a black iPad and a white iPhone. They are priced at $25 each making the total listing price for the three 2012 British pins at $95 plus $5 postage or add them to the CDN set for $75.

iWoz - first edition hardcover signed by Woz

iWoz, by Steve Wozniak and Gina Smith, published 2006, 313 pages, hardcover with dust jacket, First Edition, signed with a Sharpie on title page by Woz, in excellent condition.

Once upon a time, computers looked like big, alien vending machines. They had large screens, cryptic switches, huge boxes, and odd lights. But in 1975, a young engineering wizard named Steve Wozniak had an idea: What if you combined computer circuitry with a regular typewriter keyboard and a video screen? The result was the first true personal computer, the Apple I. Widely affordable and easily understood, Wozniak's invention has been rapidly transforming our world ever since. His life--before and after Apple--is a "home-brew" mix of brilliant discovery and adventure, as an engineer, a concert promoter, a fifth-grade teacher, a philanthropist, and an irrepressible prankster. From the invention of the first personal computer to the rise of Apple as an industry giant, iWoz presents a no-holds-barred, rollicking, firsthand account of the humanist inventor who ignited the computer revolution.

This book is priced at $90 and is available for local pickup in Nelson or mailing at cost. There are other signed Woz items, click the labels below. To inquire contact Dave via

Power Computing VIP Boston Macworld 1996 t-shirt

This is a rare version of the 1996 Power Computing "We're Fighting Back For The Mac" promotional T-shirt featuring the infamous Frank Kozik designed Sluggo/Puggo that launched a lawsuit from Nancy Comics. On the back is Power Computing 1996 Boston Macworld Expo and an unusual MacWorld MVB V.I.P.  on one sleeve. There was a VIP room at the Mama Kin Music Hall in Boston in 1995, not sure about the details for '96. MVB might be Most Valuable Bruin but that is conjecture. The shirt has been worn and washed several times over the years and has some lightly discolored areas that are noticeable up close but none on the area of the graphics. A dry cleaning might help but a washing did not clean it as much as I had hoped. It is still a good wearable or collectible shirt from the days before Steve Jobs ended the Apple clone program. It is a Lofteez brand size XL made in the USA of 100% preshrunk cotton by Fruit of the Loom.

This classic '96 VIP Power Computing T-shirt is priced at $55 with mailing at cost of postage. There is a companion poster and other versions of this shirt available as well, click the Power Computing label below. To inquire contact Dave via

Vintage 1997 ComputerWare Mac OS 8 promo T-shirt

 ComputerWare received Apple Specialist Authorization from Apple Computer in early 1997 for its dedication to the Macintosh platform. This is a ComputerWare T-shirt promoting the launch of Mac OS 8 that was released on July 26, 1997, shortly after Steve Jobs returned to Apple.

This is a new unworn, unwashed 100% cotton size Large Hanes Beefy-T with fabric components made in the USA and assembled in Mexico.

July '97 is one of the more important periods in Apple history: Jobs becomes the de facto chief of Apple in a boardroom coup and OS 7.7 segues to OS 8 thereby killing the Macintosh Clone program as one of his first moves. This shirt is a spot-on benchmark of the most game-changing turnaround in Apple history. It even features a rare graphic of Anya Major, the original non-iPod wearing runner in the iconic "1984" SuperBowl ad. Finder also became a drill-down drag and drop wunderkind in System 8 that continues today. This shirt is priced for the discerning Mac collector at $50 with postage at cost.

Rare Apple Cafe coat from the abandoned Media Hub project

This is a very rare and vintage stadium coat from Apple's abandoned 'Apple Cafe' project. It is in near-new excellent condition sourced from a collector in Southern California.

It is a lined and substantial black Hilton brand jacket in a size Large made in Hong Kong of 100% cotton. There is a large embroidered Apple Cafe global logo on back and a small embroidered Apple rainbow logo on the front.

Here is a Wayback Machine snapshot of the original Welcome to Apple Cafe! at the 'coming soon' webpage. This unique piece of Apple history is priced at $275 plus insured postage at cost. The coat weighs about 3 lbs. boxed. To inquire contact Dave via
