The CEO of a former Minnesota-based software company, 4D Interactive Systems, Inc.,  which worked on Zaxxon, Pepper2, Subroc, Tarzan and Spy Hunter for ColecoVision--is selling an Altair 8800 on eBay right now.  There's a great chunk of computing and Coleco history in the description.

Interesting read - thanks for the link.  Wow - someone has even started the bidding even though the starting bid was $2500 (+min $450 shipping).

Wow! $2500 for an untested Altair. Sure wish I'd been able to foresee in 1975 / 76 that an untested Altair would fetch that much in 2019. I'd have stockpiled Altair 8800s and also bought 5 or 6 Apple I computer kits as well! Better investment than real estate or the stock market!
