I prefer to keep the ICs in the boards ;-)

I bought a decent haul of PDP-11/23 stuff from a guy in Australia,
having outbid a chip collector by a penny or two at the last minute.
Those boards are now assembled up in a spare BA23 I had, sitting in a
mate's workshop where it occasionally gets fired up and played with.

I like having butterflies in my garden, too.  Butterflies flying around,
not dead in little boxes.
