Oh yes! I hope it sells!
I have piles and piles of all sorts of old IC's packed away. I know I have *at least* one 25 pc tube each of Intel 4004's! And, 6800's, 8008's, 6502s, Z80s, at least one tube of every TTL chip ever made. Plus all the various sizes of 3-voltage and 2-voltage and single-voltage memory chips, dynamic, static and even magnetic bubble!
If these once pedestrian, long outmoded ICs become worth piles of cash as museum pieces, then I'm going to be richer than if I won the lottery!
I kept some of absolutely everything ever used in microcomputers from the early days because I once did a sizeable sideline business repairing such things. In addition to the chips, I have lots of the other things, like some of every storage device from the old days.
You need a 1.2 MB 8" diskdrive for your IBM System Six or 5110, I have you covered! You need a 5 MB 5.25" harddrive for you Commodore PET, I have you covered. You need a 1 GB SCSI 3.5" harddrive for your IBM PS/2, one's available here. Mag tape drives of all kinds, read-write optical drives (like the IBM 3363), magneto-optical drives, card punches and readers, paper tape punches and readers. Lots and lots of now-ancient stuff.
I even have a few whole systems that I rigged up to perform media transfers. If you have an old program on paper tape (or punch cards), and wish it stuck onto a modern USB memory key, that I can do! I have to run it thru four systems to do it, but it can be done. My old IBM 5100 can read the paper tape, stick it onto an 8" diskette, then to the original IBM PC 5150 to go to 5.25" diskette, then to a PS/2 mod 95 to go to 1.44 MB floppy then to a fairly modern Thinkpad X31 to get to the memory key.
It's not that I ever thought these things would ever be anything other than ancient electronics. It's just that such things all had a time when good ones were available for free, I was fixing such things, and so known-good stuff got put into boxes on the shelf 'for later'.
Eventually, 'later' passed the stuff by, but it's still good and out of the way, and so I just let it be 'in case'. There are a lot more IC's packed away than the storage devices as chips are a lot smaller, all come in anti-static plastic tubes and never suffer from aging the way mechanical stuff does.
While I'm at it, I have all sorts of other electronic components as well. Old transistors, caps, resistors and the like. I even have a very large collection of vacuum tubes, which is something I use quite often as there is a lot if interest in resurrecting old radios from the 1950's and 60's these days.
But, I do hope that people go wild wanting old Intel 4004's. I'll auction of a couple of mine until the market goes soft and make some real money that'll make storing all this old crap really worthwhile!
Not that I'm about to hold my breath.
