The 2000 was a workhorse Amiga, I would expect them to sell hundreds of 
thousands of them (anyone have production numbers?). Were there more then 
30K Toaster boards sold?

Quite a few A2000 Toasters on ebay are just generic 2000's that somebody 
stuck a Toaster card into because it makes the whole setup worth more. Those 
systems are missing the stickers you stuck to the expansion slot to label 
all the ports.
