In the middle in a black turtleneck is a Topps 2000 series Steve Jobs 1955-2011 card #199. "Unfortunately, that day has come."

At the left is a Steve Jobs 2011 Topps American Pie 1980s series Macintosh Released #146 promoting the 128K Apple Macintosh at Super Bowl XVIII on January 22, 1984 and launching it two days later.

At bottom left is an Upper Deck 2004 History of the United States Inventors and Inventions card crediting Steve Wozniak (and Steve Jobs) with building the Apple I personal computers in 1976 - which were sold for $666.66.

All cards are unused and in mint or near mint condition. The seven cards are priced as a set of 5 for $50 - the duplicate Jobs founder cards are included at no cost. Add $5 for postage. The Gibson Guitar card is $10.

Frank Kozik "Publish or Perish" 1996 Power Computing Seybold poster

"You can take my Mac when you pry my cold dead fingers off the mouse!"
This poster is a very rare and collectible silk screened original print by the famous rock poster artist Frank Kozik. He did a series of prints for the Power Computing company that were part of their guerrilla marketing campaign to "fight back for the Mac" in 1996 and 1997.

The original owner had this to say about the poster: "As you can see this is the one with the girl and the gun and an American flag uttering the greatest line in Mac history! I picked up this one at the P-C booth at the show, it was a very cool and defiant giveaway from the "darkest days" of Apple, some say these were the spark that brought them back from the brink."

Red, White and Blueberry G3 iMac collection

G3 iMac collection for sale in western Canada. This is a decent set of G3 iMacs - they are all 450 or 500MHz, with at least 256 Ram, 40GB HD (the Snow has an 80) and all are running 10.4.11 Tiger OS. Not mint - there are scuffs on the plastics and the Blueberry has a couple of scratches on the screen and the Ruby has two small cracks in the sub-case and the price reflects that.

These are far too fragile to ship so local pickup in Nelson BC - just north of Spokane WA. Price is $135 USD for this set of vintage red white and blue iMacs.

There are optional keyboards, mice and other iMacs available. To inquire contact Dave via kootenaymac.tel

"Official Swag" Power Computing Macworld Boston 1996 Poster by Frank Kozik

This is a Power Computing Macworld Boston 1996 poster with a "Sluggo" design by Frank Kozik. This poster has been kept rolled in the original PowerComputing "Official Swag" tube for the last 20 years. The poster is in great condition, no tears, no stains. The 3" diameter cardboard tube is in good condition with a just a faint bit of water staining on the tube - but none on the poster..This highly collectible 20" by 22" poster comes rolled in the original PowerComputing "Official Swag" tube with original label as shown.

The poster was designed by Frank Kozik, and features his 'Puggo' version of Sluggo from the Nancy comic that provoked threats of a lawsuit. It is the actual "Let's Kick Intel's Ass" poster that was pulled the first day of Macworld. Only a few of these posters were handed out before one of the PC "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. When Steve Jobs returned to Apple, the Mac clone program was ended. This super rare Macworld Power Computing Mac clone poster is priced at $275 with mailing at cost of postage. It will be shipped insured inside a second heavy cardboard tube.

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 $330 US 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). Individual ones are $110 each plus postage but 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
