    A friend of mine in the dorms bought an entire box of misc keyboards for cheap at a university surplus auction. Upon digging through this box, I found an old Apple ADB keyboard, similar to this one. I don't know if the keyboard works, however, it seems to be in great condition, just a bit dirty, and it has the cable with it too. He's selling each keyboard he got for a dollar (Youd be suprised how many of these ancient keyboards he sold, and throwing a broken model-m out an 8th story window was fun). Now, I'll subtract a dollar storage fee from him since he's storing all these keyboards in my room since mine's larger, and the keyboard is free to me ;) Now, realistically, what could I sell this for? Is it even worth anything to begin with? It's certainly an old keyboard and probably a collectors item, but is it even worth my time to try to sell it? Thanks.

    Not really worth anything at all, I've received these "free" when buying old 68K Macs for $20.

    Huh. I've got two of them, used but complete and in decent shape, and in their original boxes. A good eBay item, perhaps?
