Estimated Value: $1,000,000

Current Bid: $270,000


"The"Celebration" Apple-1 <http://apple1.charitybuzz.com/>is an original 
Apple-1 pre-NTI board that has many unique features, period correct power 
supply, original Apple-1 ACI cassette board (also populated with Robinson 
Nugent sockets), early Apple-1 BASIC cassettes, original marketing 
material, and the most complete documentation set of the known Apple-1 boards.

The "Celebration" Apple-1 is extremely rare not only because of the 
scarcity of Apple-1 computers, but according to Steve Wozniak, co-founder 
of Apple Computer, no known PCB boards of this type were ever sold to the 
public. At this time, this is the only known Apple-1 to show the signs of 
starting out as a blank original-run board and not part of the two known 
production runs, so this board appears to be unique from all other known 
Apple-1 boards."
