Did you know old Apple t-shirts are an Apple collector fan fav? They are, and I must confess I also love these old markers of Apple’s days gone by.

Apple Time Capsule

An Apple Time Capsule Opening Imagine opening time capsule boxes filled with rare Apple goodies, many of which date back to their early Lisa/Macintosh days, and having no clue at the time what’s inside.

Apple Computer Collection Nightmare

My entire Apple computer and Mac memorabilia collection was gone. All my old computers, Apple history library of magazines from the 80’s and hard to find old computer books disappeared. Even my Apple note pad and mug collection were gone. All my Apple/Mac extensive t-shirt collection was no more, along with everything else. Now I’ll […]
