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

Steve Jobs bulk mailing letter to Power Computing customers circa 1997

This is an Apple marketing letter from Steve Jobs to customers of Power Computing, the maker of Macintosh clones in the 1990s. The letter was written shortly after Apple bought Power Computing in July 1997, and was mailed specifically to customers who had recently purchased a Power Computing computer. It features the rainbow-colored apple in the letterhead and is a digital reproduction of Jobs signature that was used for bulk-mailed letters.

The letter had three purposes: to reassure those customers that Apple will provide support, to promote Apple's new computers, and to invite the customers to take advantage of a Mac OS upgrade offer. The letter comes from a very important time in Apple's history: Jobs had just returned to Apple to take over the CEO position in July of that year and had started the process of canceling all Mac clone licensing agreements. The letter would make a very nice addition to an Apple Macintosh or Power Computing collection.
Excerpts:
"First things first: As a co-founder of Apple Computer, I want to welcome you back to the family. (The fact is, of course, that you never really left; most Power Computing customers were Apple customers to begin with, and still are.)"
"Believe me, you'll see some hot new machines in the months ahead. The new Power Macintosh computers will feature new architectures designed to boost performance. These new machines will set speed records for desktop and notebook comptuers — and will confirm Mac OS as the platform of choice for education and creative professions."
"As Apple introduces these new models in the coming months, we'll also be exploring new ways to deliver and custom-configure our products. And we plan to adopt some of the innovative approaches to selling that made Power Computing such a big hit with customers."
The letter is in very good condition. It has two original folds and signs of handling but no tears or other folds and can be mailed at the cost of postage in a flat envelope or rolled in a tube. It is priced at $30. To inquire contact Dave via kootenaymac.tel

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. The companion Flower Power poster is also available - click the label below. To inquire contact Dave via kootenaymac.tel

vintage Apple product posters final random grouping #4

these Apple product placement posters are from the Nelson BC Canada Apple reseller store that closed about 7 years ago. some have pin holes in the upper corners, others have never been displayed. click the picture and then click again for best views of condition - no other descriptions are provided. they measure approx. 22"x28". they were shipped flat by Apple and have never been rolled or exposed to sunlight in the 7 to 10 years since i obtained them. they have not been advertised on KootenayMac before.

this brings the total to 25 with 2 duplicates. if i find more i'll just include them - the price is $20 apiece for a total of $500. prices before this year have been in US$ but with quantity sales and retirement all prices are now in CDN$ - you do the math - i just want to liquidate and keep trips to the post office to a minimum. all posters go as a lot - no individual sales at 20 bucks a pop. packing, safe shipping and insurance are going to be an issue but we can work something out.

vintage Apple product posters random grouping #3

Apple product placement posters circa 2010/11. that's 18 so far. there are duplicates occasionally, this time it is the black MacBook Air poster. shipping will be a factor - would not want any damage so possibly lightly rolled into a box then that box into another with padding all around. shipping flat may mean a puncture would get all of them so maybe the factory cardboard inside a larger box or you arrange a courier pick-up... local pick up in BC Canada would be best but that is limited these days too.

Rare large Macintosh Finder "Happy Face" window stickers

These are rare brand new unused Apple dealer Mac OS Finder store window stickers measuring 8" x 10". The photo was taken with light shining through to show what they will look like when the backing paper is removed - if it is ever removed; the value may be in the unused condition or framed. This is the splash screen boot icon of System 8 (and then 9 and X) that replaced the Happy Mac icon with the introduction of the PowerPC.

There are only 2 available; they are rare and long out of production. These are not decals but cling stickers that were used on the inside of the display windows of Apple stores and resellers dating back to the mid 90's. They are installed like the clear protective screens on an iDevice. They are priced for the serious collector at $75 each - buy both and the price includes insured postage.
