For those that are interested in these - it's the early type CGA, with black bracket. Seller also has a few other early looking cards.

You can try asking the seller if they can offer non-flat-rate shipping. A full-length ISA card wouldn't even fit into the medium size Priority Mail flat rate box that their shipping price is based on, anyway.

I had ulterior motives; I only have one old-style CGA card and it might be going bad (I can't capture proper color from it any more using commodity devices, something I used to be able to do), and also I have a 5150 that I want to restore and give to a friend so I needed it for that too.

Sometimes I do "hoard" things that are worth a lot to me personally (at one point I had seven central point deluxe option boards), but this wasn't one of them -- it really will be put to use.

Sorry, I wasn't trying to insinuate you hoard things... I just knew it was right up your alley!

No offense taken. A few of my friends know that I do, in fact, hoard a few aspects of our hobby; my messages was partially to them.
