    Hey guys, so ive recently cleared some space and decided to document some of my apple products that include tshirts, pins, floppy disks, boxes, jackets, mugs, pretty much everything that apple used to give out in the early 80's. Check it out. Maybe some of you could tell me if its worth anything?

    stuff like this

    Can't say what it s worth, i would imagine at least a hundred for each of the bags but i really have no idea.

    But i love the stuff!!!!

    It's always nice to see some old apple stuff. Nice collection :)

    I have a modest collection that I would guess includes some nice rarities, but have no pictures at this time. Someday....

    I think these might be pretty rare, I cant find them for sale? I have a case of them.

    I worked for an independent Apple store in the late 80s to mid 90s and remember those. I would say that if you have unused boxes then you have something quite rare indeed.

    Are you planning to sell or trade anything you have "a lot of"?

    Just looked at your picture blog - it looks pretty awesome! Most of this stuff was created before I was born ;) :eek: I never knew they did T-shirts and watches and stuff.

    The Floppy disks are not so valuable, $5/10 maybe a box. The Tshirts if in good condition will go for maybe $15/20 each (condition is the key).

    Most of the bags look trashed i'm afraid, hard to get creases out of the type of fabric, the Mac Carry bag usually get a decent price in good condition.

    The most valuable think i would say would be the FIVE year award, looks very cool!

    Good luck on selling them.

    Hey thanks! Quick question though, I found some stuff I just tried
    To look up and see if they were worth anything. An apple iii computer, an apple scanner from 1987, and a dirty 512k computer box. I think I'm
    Gonna throw the box out unless people buy that stuff?

    Oh also an apple field test box from 1994, I guess it was a kit given to resellers? Everything is unopened in it..a bunch of media guides a
    VHS tape a cassette tape a bunch of discs. It all says confidential. Anyone know of these?

    Somebody will buy that 512K box! so don't throw that one away. The TechStep if unopened and complete will fetch a good price as a lot for sale don't have all the modules.

    Trick to this vintage stuff is presentation, make sure things are as clean and tidy as possible and photographed well, clean up that 512K box as best as possible but with destroying it (leave shipping labels etc on). Thsirts (my speciality) might be a bit musty, so air them out and maybe even a quick iron, if it looks poor then the sale price will reflect this.

    Can't wait to see your auction!
