Found 34 "unsnapped" 2600 PCB s at a Saratoga CA Estate sale

Recommended Posts

Found these at an Estate Sale in Saratoga CA (Close to Sunnyvale) back in October. This is how the pcbs would look after the printing. 

The Estate was from an Atari engineer. I found these the second day of the sale, so I could only imagine what was there the first day!  

 

I also found a Atari Company store itemized price list. I'll post that later.  

 

Anyone from the Bay Area go to that sale?

Selling, as a whole, I would assume? I would hate to see them snapped apart and sold individually? I mean, they aren’t anything special once you do that; no different than the millions found inside the carts. What gives these value and makes them unique is them being an uncut sheet. It should be sold as such, presumably to a buyer who will then frame and display it as such on a wall as art.

I have several sheets of those, but not the 2K one, cool to see.  Cheers.

When I read "sheets" I imagined bed sheets. Then I realized given the number of PCBs you've gone through in your time, it's probably actually not wrong.

Yeah sell the sheets for historic purposes. They will definitely stay intact.  They'd look great framed! 

 

 When I was typing the OP, I didn't know the term for a row of connected PCB's.

Ahh Sheets!

I understand that the correct term for these is panels. Doesn't mean they aren't called sheets too, but I haven't heard them called that before, only panels.

And as we know panels go into window frames. I imagine the light effect from these panels will be quite unique.
