Rare MAC 911 Short Sleeve Shirt

Ever hear of a MAC 911 shirt? I have been collecting Apple shirts for many years and have not seen one of these before. This may have been one of the custom shirts that the Apple Evangelists were noted for wearing. One-offs and very limited editions were common back in the mid 80's and into the 90's.It is hard to date this exactly but it was made in Sri Lanka by Port Authority so it could be late 90's as the rainbow logo was used from 1976 to 1998 and Port Authority started up in '97.

It is an olive green size Large 100% cotton shirt that has been washed but appears to be in new condition with no sign of wear. The MAC 911 and rainbow logo embroidery still glows. It is priced at $80 with postage at cost. There is another Apple Port Authority shirt available, click the evangelist label below. To inquire contact Dave via kootenaymac.tel

Vintage Tangerine Apple Company Store Ball Point Pen

This Apple-branded pen dates back to the "FlavorMac" years around Y2K when the iMacs and iBook Clamshells came in a variety of colors. This Tangerine ball point pen, in its original packing tube, was purchased at the Apple Company Store in Cupertino, the only place it was available. The tube is 4.5" long, with the bar code sticker intact.

The pen is unused. It still has plenty of ink inside it, but perhaps because of aging, it did not write when tested in June, but it still makes a good vintage collectible item. It is priced at $35 and that includes postage. There are several other Tangerine collectibles available - click the label below. To inquire contact Dave via kootenaymac.tel

Extremely rare pin - Keep Your Lawyers Off My Computer

This is the infamous Fanged Apple, a design created in protest of Apple's lawsuit regarding graphical user interfaces (GUI) software. This 2.25" diameter button is in very good condition with all details crisp and clear. It was one of three released last year by a collector in California. It was his last one and they have become extremely rare. It is priced at $65 and that includes postage. To inquire contact Dave via kootenaymac.tel

Provenance: the former owner of this pin, a speaker at several Boston MacWorlds in the early 90's, says "I personally obtained this button from Richard Stallman outside of Lotus's offices in Cambridge, MA!"

"In 1989, Apple's look and feel lawsuit against Microsoft brought the idea of interface copyright to the attention of the programming community. Apple was trying to claim a monopoly over a broad class of graphical user interfaces. If Apple succeeded, not only Microsoft, but every software developer, would be legally compelled to design gratuitously incompatible software." In response, John Gilmore and Richard Stallman together commissioned the design of the "fanged Apple"–a button showing the Apple logo with vicious teeth. This was followed by an advertisement placed in The Tech, MIT's student newspaper, which in turn led to a protest rally at the HQ of Lotus Development Corporation--another "look and feel" lawsuit plaintiff."

update: a second pin - very slightly scuffed - is available for $50

Harmon Kardon SoundSticks III speakers

These SoundSticks are brand new in the original sealed retail box, complete with manufacturer's warranty. Available for local pickup in Nelson BC for $195 or with shipping at cost depending on location. To inquire contact Dave via kootenaymac.tel

From the manufacturer: Few multimedia sound systems can boast that their predecessor was part of the permanent collection at New York City’s Museum of Modern Art (MoMA), but that’s exactly the claim the SoundSticks III speaker system can make. Taking its older sibling’s celebrated design even further, the SoundSticks III look is cutting-edge with a modern industrial design aesthetic, elegant black accents and a luminescent white LED glow. And though the SoundSticks III system may look like a visitor from the future with its transparent speaker covers, its exceptional performance makes it a more-than-worthy encore to its pop-culture predecessor.

Review | Cult of Mac: It’s rare that you can point to an accessory and say “Jony Ive” designed that, but with the Harman Kardon Soundsticks, that’s literally true.
