There is a sucker born every minute. Did you see the other things the winner
has bid on, he must have deep pockets (Alonzo Mourning used Nikes $399, Deon
Sanders sweaty Jersey $1800, NRI 832 $1713.88). I don't think this guy in
Texas is going to be short on the rent if this wooden box is holding an
Apple II board.
