> floppy drives? Maybe a better question; are they any cards worth saving?
Ones I would certainly save include :
Any original IBM cards, as docuemtned in the Techrefs (I am still
dreaming of finding a Professional Graphics Controller...)
'Famous' cards, like the original Hercules graphics card, AST Sixpack, etc
Any lab/realtime cards (digital and analogue I/O, etc)
Anythign with a user-programmable processor on it (this includes DSP
cards, transputer cards, coprocessors, etc)

For the Apple ][, I'd keep anything apart from the Disk // card (which is
very common). Language cards are also pretty easy to find.
Lab I/O cards, coproesseors (at least the Z80 and 6809 exist), serial
ports (common, but very useful to transfer data to the Apple from a PC) etc
are worth saving.
> general rule there has been that if I have the docs, they are worth
Depends on how good the docs are :-). The bit of paper you get with
no-name PC multi-I/O cards probably doesn't count. Having a real manual
with programming details and maybe even a schematic would certainly cause
me to save the card (and the manual, of course).
