Vintage SNL Macintosh 1995 Macworld long sleeve shirt

This is a rare Macintosh Macworld long sleeve shirt from 1995. Proudly worn and washed in good condition with some wear on the screened graphics. "Macintosh" down one arm and 3 of the bitten Apple logos down the other arm. "The Power To Crush The Other Kids" on the front and MACWORLD '95 writ large on the back. You may never see another one of these offered for sale.

The cheetah represents Sheila Brady, the "high energy" manager of the PowerPC operations and the checkered flag is the completion of the project as the new computer starts rolling off the assembly line.

Stylized vintage Apple rainbow logo T-shirt

This is an Apple t-shirt with a stylized rainbow logo circa 1990. It does not appear in the Apple T-Shirts Book so I have no other information about the design. The front shows the rainbow stacked like books so this may have been part of the education division. Macintosh is below the structure and the artists' signature looks like Ken G. The back shows a registered Apple in the Garamond font. The shirt appear to be in new condition.

It is a size large white cotton shirt, with no tags other than a small hand sewn one indicating a 90-98 centimeter chest which is closer to a medium. It is from Malaysia, and appears to be new old stock but are very thin material as might be found in the tropics. Apple opened a Singapore manufacturing plant there in 1981 and it ran for 22 years making circuit boards so this design might relate to that factory. There was an education division there also. This shirt is priced at $30 plus postage at cost and would be an interesting and rare addition to any Apple shirt collection. Another Apple Singapore shirt is available, click the label below. To inquire contact Dave via kootenaymac.tel

note: any info on this design would be appreciated

Power Computing Sluggo Kick-Ass Kozik Poster MacWorld '96

This rare and controversial poster was designed by Frank Kozik, and features his 'Puggo' version of Sluggo from the Nancy comic. The original owner has this to say about the poster he got at the '96 Boston MacWorld: "It was released at Macworld '96 by PowerComputing, the most successful of the Apple Mac clone companies. Few of the posters were handed out, when one of the "SUITS" decided that they would no longer distribute them. They were removed from the booth and the show-floor locations where they were being handed out."

The stories surrounding this poster include real and threatened lawsuits by the Nancy comic distributor over copyright violations and by Intel for being it's trademark being slagged. The word "ass" was also a sore point at Power Computing. This poster has been mounted professionally on a 1/4" wood backing panel that is not removable. There is a damaged corner in the wood at the bottom left of the frame where it fell from it's wall mount. The poster has no damage except the wrinkle outside the black border (click the image to view) and could be professionally restored.

So while the t-shirt version (also available) circulated for a while, this poster quickly disappeared into private collections. Until now. Add it to yours for $125 plus shipping at cost. To inquire contact Dave via kootenaymac.tel

The Banana Junior 6000: Computers and Comedy | Computer History Museum: In late 1984, Breathed introduced a new character, the Banana Junior 9000 (later the Banana Junior 6000, though it is unknown whether this was due to an unseen processor downgrade…) which was adopted by young Oliver Wendell Jones.

Released at the same time as the Macintosh was a fictional computer that was 32-bits and offered a staggering 450KB of memory! It proudly declared that it “Computes! Sorts! Prints! Draws! Figures! Doodles! Slices! Dices! Whistle! Whimpers! Dances! Prances!” It was the most insanely great great computer ever devised for a comic strip.

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.

DILBERT at 1 Infinite Loop Cupertino California Animation Cel

This is an original production art cel accompanied by a glossy presentation background. Size is 13"x11". This setup has a full walking DILBERT as the cel and the Apple rainbow logo at 1 Infinite Loop on the separate background. This is the original back painted cel. It is now a lost art as Dilbert was one of the last hand painted cartoon shows prior to the transition to digital.

These Dilbert episodes originally were broadcast on the UPN network, but you can still see them on the Comedy Central cable channel. This cel was purchased from Nigelwackenfrets in Florida - the only source for the originals. It is highly collectible and is accompanied by certificate that this is an authentic Dilbert TV cartoon production art cel but aside from that this is one fine Apple collectible. It is priced at $75 unmounted/unframed in the shipping tube. Special cel matting is required. To inquire contact Dave via kootenaymac.tel
