Apple 20th anniversary mac

Hey, I did some searching but I cant seem to find the going rate for a 20th anniversary mac? Can somebody please let me know the price on these? They are opened but still in the original boxes with all of the components and they work. Thanks!

Check eBay, Make sure to search "20th" and "twentieth" to see all listings.

Because it's such a rare, niche item, there probably isn't a going value.. one week an auction could go for $900, the next $600..

In case anyone is interested, there are two TAM's currently listed on eBay right now.

http://cgi.ebay.com/TWENTIETH-ANNIVE...item20b9a60cd2

http://cgi.ebay.com/RARE-Brand-New-2...item2a10de52f4

They seem to be in extremely good condition.

One of them didn't come up in a search on eBay for some reason. I found it by just searching through every page of the Apple category in Vintage Computing on eBay.

You'd be surprised how a little error like that on eBay can cost you a lot.

How many of them do you have and how did you get a hold of them?

Ha yea I the titles do mean a lot. Thank you both for helping me with this. I still have the two I purchased when they came out, even with the employee discount I think it was a mistake

Twentieth Anniversary Mac for sale

Hi,

For anyone who's interested: I've got a TAM for sale, hopefully I'll find the original packaging, but it's in great condition. There are two other listings on eBay. My listing is called "20th Anniversary Macintosh - Rare and beautiful."

As someone who bought in at $1999 when they were discontinued/Steve said "get rid of them!", I wouldn't see a return either... Not that I mind.

A few years back a TAM that was supposedly never before opened sold on eBay for about $5,000+... but typically under $1,000 without boxes... maybe a bit over if you've got ALL of the original boxes and bits...
