    ROSEVILLE, CA- It's been called the Holy Grail of vintage computers and a local man has one for sale.

    But Jesse Sackman knows it's also a collectors item and he wants $50,000 dollars for his model on Ebay.

    "It's a museum piece and in demand all over the world," said Sackman.

    Sackman says he's selling his Apple-1 with its original packing for financial reasons.

    "I hate that I have to, it's very hard for me," said Sackman.

    The computer even comes with a typed letter from Steve Jobs to the original buyer of the Apple-1 who wanted his money back because it didn't come with a keyboard or monitor. In the letter, Jobs explains to the buyer how to connect it.

    Ebay bidding ends Sunday. So far there are no online bids on the computer.

    I don't think he'll get that much in today's Economy...

    Maybe around $10K.... unless he wants to wait another 15 years or so...

    Some fool just paid $420,000 for a single glove, so $50,000 an old circuit board doesn't seem too bad. :rolleyes:
