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.

Vintage Macintosh SNL parody "The Power to Crush The Other Kids" T-shirt collection

This is a collection of 7 shirts - they are 2nd generation versions of the NBC Saturday Night Live commercial skit  that parodies the Macintosh ad. They are all size Large.  It is described on page 184 of the Apple T-Shirts Book and is the sanctioned Apple registered trademark edition that was sold at the San Francisco Macworld in 1996 and then at the original Apple Company Store.

There are four new gray shirts and plus a washed gray one, one white and one black long sleeve. The white one -center - appears new but the label has been half cut off.

At the top is a rare Macintosh Macworld long sleeve shirt from 1995. Proudly worn and washed in good condition with some wear on the screened graphics but not on the bitten rainbow apple. "Macintosh" is 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. This is a high end version that may well have been made special for an Apple Evangelist as a Macworld promo. It is priced at $155 with postage included in North America and the 5 remaining new ones at $75 each and one washed one at $60 (plus postage) but I would prefer to sell the entire set of 7 for $490 USD postage included for the set - that's $100 off.

Rare 2003 Apple AppleMusic.com Gibson ES-345 Guitar Poster

This is an ultra rare 2003 AppleMusic.com promo poster featuring a Gibson ES-345 Guitar. It became better known as the Garage Band icon. This poster measures 24" x 36" and is in good condition with few flaws. There are no tack holes or tape tears but there is some edge wear and a few small creases, smudges and marks but it frames up very well. There is a rubber band mark on the back where it was rolled up and stored for several years. In very small print at the bottom right is the 2003 TM for Apple Computer, Inc. All rights reserved.

It is a simple and beautiful poster for AppleMusic.com which was a short-lived music website that was replaced soon after launch by iTunes. During May 2003 this poster appeared as promo ads on the back covers of several well known magazines and then they all disappeared and were replaced by the iTunes Store as Apple Computer and Apple Corps squared off over the use of the name. This memento of a brief yet game-changing piece of Apple history is available for the serious Apple collector at $400 USD and that includes insured postage in a sturdy cardboard tube. Missingbite had one a few years ago for $599.

Update: a second one is now available with staple holes in each corner - price is $250
and Apple has just brought back Apple Music so this is even a more collectible poster!

There are several magazines with a back cover ad of this poster also available, click the label below. To inquire contact Dave via kootenaymac.tel

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 kootenaymac.tel

Vintage Embroidered Apple Rainbow Logo sticker collection

A baker's dozen of vintage embroidered bitten rainbow Apple logo stickers. Apple supplied them as dealership promotional items from the 80's to mid 90's. They are the classic 6 color logos measuring almost an inch high. There were at least 2 styles - some were on strips of paper 3 to a strip and some were on a roll. Some had paper backing and some were attached to plastic strips.

They could originally be stuck onto most surfaces, and ironed or sewn onto clothing. Over the years the glue has dried on some so no promises on them retaining any adhesive qualities. They are new-old-stock and came from various sources as sets of 3, 4 and 6. They are available as a complete collection of 13 for $90 and that includes postage.
