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

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 $90 for the set with shipping at cost. To inquire contact Dave via

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

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."

How Apple Computers got into Schools


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
