A few recent finds that I thought I'd share:

I've been looking for an IBM Professional Graphics Controller
card for awhile but never thought I'd find one in this condition :-)
Thats still sealed in the anti-static bag. Wonder what secret
vault this was hidden in for 22 years....

Came sealed in the original box too, box looks a little rough.

Hopefully will work well with my PGD monitor :

Is there a repository on this board for scanned docs ?

There isn't at the moment. You can upload some images as attachments to messages, but if you're going to do a bunch you may consider contributing to Al Kossow's Bitsavers (www.bitsavers.org (http://www.bitsavers.org)) which is easily the best such repository on the web.
