NIB Factory Sealed Vintage Apple Computer Company Products

Collecting vintage Apple products that are still new gets me excited. The older the Apple is the harder it is to find in this condition. It wouldn’t be hard to find any old Apple in only good grade condition, but if I’m going to buy it used and in only good condition it would have […]

Apple’s watch gets smart

Apple watches are cool and extremely collectible. No, I’m not talking about the highly anticipated smart watch dubbed the iWatch. Instead, I’m talking about the timepieces pictured in their Apple product catalogs during the mid to late 1980’s and then others used as promotional items throughout the 1990s. As the world excitedly awaits Apple’s unveiling of their first […]

Apple Macintosh Cube Notepad

Cute. I know it’s not a word usually associated with Apple branded products, but that’s exactly the best word to describe today’s featured Apple collectible.  I only became aware of this particular Apple a couple of years ago. I don’t remember where I saw it the first time, but I immediately decided I was going […]
