Some Old Brand Names Worth Only $1,000
By Jonathan Poet
Just a quick update on the auctions I wrote about recently. The Apple 1 was sold for more than $212,000, a sum that could have purchased every old brand name auctioned a few days later. Victrola, highly prized by RetroThing editors, went for $1,000, as did General Cinema. Collier's went for $2,000. The highest bid was $45,000 (for investment bank Shearson). Meister Brau went for $32,500. Infoseek was put together in a single package with Big Yank and the Linen Closet. All three were sold together for $2,000.
