Rip.Mix.Burn. iMac G3 Dalmatian poster collection

Vintage original G3 iMac Dalmatian poster collection from the Apple "Rip Mix Burn" campaign, which caused a bit of controversy because the music industry thought that it promoted stealing music. However, the iTunes music store has since proven that wrong. All 3 are from the Think Different era, copyright 2001, Apple part number L13044A.

I bought them from a retired upstate New York Apple dealer several years ago and am just now offering them for sale as a set. They are all factory different: the left one is a very high quality plastic laminate on both sides, the right one is the standard light poster paper and the bottom one is unique in that the poster stock is quite heavy and it has a slightly pebbly matte finish on the front and the back is a kind of waxy gloss finish. Different for sure.

These Blue Dalmatian posters are very rare in the wild now, not even The Missing Bite or eBay has any currently. They measure 22" x 28" each and are all in near mint or new old stock condition and were never displayed except for this photo. Bear in mind they are 17 years old and have been handled a bit - one has a light smudge but there are no pin holes or tears and all will frame up nicely. The price is $280 USD for the 3 poster collection and that includes insured mailing to Canada and USA in a heavy cardboard tube (out of North America adds $30 postage). I prefer to sell as a set. The companion Flower Power poster is also available - click the label below. To inquire contact Dave via kootenaymac.tel

Vintage Apple postcard collection

This is a collection of vintage Apple postcards and a Jobs/Mac stamp plus one card made on a Mac clone. Also included as a bonus are two related cards.

The far left 'It's Springtime' card shows a G4 iMac from Mac House in Berlin. At the bottom far left is a new unused bitten rainbow Apple card from the Think Different era. It has a 1-800 number for an Apple authorized reseller and shows the url www.apple.co.za.

In the center left row is a Come See the Apple Computer postcard from California that was sent in the 80's to a client from the Santa Rosa California Computer Center. It features the IIc, IIe, IIGS, the Mac Plus and the Mac SE and offers a rebate on selected add-ons. It is the only one that has been mailed.

The orange Whoa! card is an unused student promo from Australia. The Bondi iMac is from the Design Museum and credits Jonathan Ive - 1998.

The bottom of that column is a 1992 promo for Authorized Apple resellers.

Next column are 3 Think Different cards and at the bottom is a Steve Jobs stamp from the Republic of Guine-Bissau in Africa in MNH condition.

Right column is an Indigo iMac enclosing a racing engine with a blower from drive.com.au - not Apple but tossing it into the collection.

There is no handwriting on it and no stamp or postmark and the condition is VG. Bottom right is just a bonus card that looks like the image Apple used on the Yosemite OS.

update May 2023 - now included are the yellow and purple 2003 original silhouette Apple Macintosh iPod advertising postcards plus a 1998 Apple Expo Think Different card in French. Bottom right is a fairly rare 2005 French silhouette card “Offrez de la musique sur apple.com/fr/itunes”

Apple iPad2 4x6 ft bus shelter posters

2 iPad2 posters: these are 4 foot wide by 6 foot tall bus shelter posters announcing the launch of the Apple iPad2 in black and white. They are uv-treated, double sided and are printed on a heavy coated thick and durable material. They may have a bit of edge wear but both are in very good condition overall.

Posters of this size of such high quality are hard to find and were never available outside of a few major US cities. They are backlit posters that were displayed mainly in LA bus shelters and select movie theatres. The double-sided printing gives an extremely life-like look to the poster when light is placed behind it. They were printed in limited numbers, which makes them rare and hard to get as most are destroyed after use and are not available otherwise. These two highly collectible Apple iPad2 posters are priced at $190 for the set with shipping at cost. To inquire contact Dave via kootenaymac.tel

 - another set of the iPad2 posters are available but they were bent on one side in mailing and are $90/set or both sets for $250 plus postage - photos here

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.

vintage 20" Apple LCD acrylic ADC monitor

20″ Apple acrylic ADC Cinema Display, LCD, 1680 x 1050 native resolution shown in use on a G4 Quicksilver tower in this photo from November 24, 2021. The unit is in very good condition and features a single cord ADC plug that connects to the PowerMac ADC port. A swipe of the finger on the lower right corner powers up the tower and monitor.

The Apple Display Connector (ADC) is a proprietary modification of the DVI connector that combines analog and digital video signals, USB, and power all in one cable. Apple introduced it with the Dual Processor Mystic Power Mac G4 and new ADC monitors in July 2000, removing the industry standard DVI port previously found on the Sawtooth Power Mac G4. ADC remained a standard feature of Power Macs through the 2004 Power Mac G5; ADC was not present on the 2005 Power Mac G5, and Apple resumed use of the DVI connector alongside ADC with the Mirrored Drive Doors Power Mac G4 in August 2002.

Rare Power Computing Kozik Macworld "The Counter Assault Begins" poster collection

This is a rare and hard to find Frank Kozik "The Counter Assault Begins" poster. It measures approximately 21" x 34". The main text is: Power Computing - The Counter-Assault Begins. Macworld San Francisco 1997. Join Power Computing in Fighting Back for the Mac!

The original owner had this to say about it: "This poster is in great condition and has been in a protective storage since I acquired it during the 1997 Macworld Expo in San Francisco and was unrolled only to take this picture." This Apple clone poster was designed by punk rock poster artist Frank Kozik and was distributed at Macworld. "Kozik is best known to Macintosh users for these in-your-face illustrations for now-defunct Mac-clone maker Power Computing."

"Power Computing was the most successful of the Mac clone manufacturers in the mid to late 90's prior to Steve Job's return to Apple and putting an end to all the clone makers. Power Computing's booth at Macworld '97 in San Francisco was a big party. They rented Hummers, had mini flags with the company logo hanging from the front of the hood field marshal-style, and wore urban camouflage fatigues and berets."

"Their slogan was 'We're fighting back for the Mac!'  Their stated enemy was Microsoft, which pissed off the Microsoft people, as they would stand with a microphone on their stage and hurl barbs and insults in the direction of the Microsoft pavilion."
Apple history note: Macintosh clone - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia: Soon after Steve Jobs returned to Apple in 1997, he halted negotiations of upcoming licensing deals with OS licensees that Apple executives complained were still financially unfavorable.... Apple bought Power Computing's Mac clone business for $100 million, ending the Clone era.

This highly collectible vintage poster is priced at $350 plus postage. The matching 1994 original poster titled People's Victory that this one was "cloned" from by Frank Kozik for Power Computing is also available for $200. It is an artist's proof (A/P) and is pencil signed by Kozik. Click photos for larger images. There are other rare Kozik PowerComputing posters and shirts for sale - click the labels below. Buy both posters for $500USD and that includes insured postage. To inquire contact Dave via kootenaymac.tel
