View Full Version : Large amount of card to be identified. (Mostly ISA 8-bit and 16-bit)

May 8th, 2016, 06:20 PM
Hello all,

I need your help identifying a large amount of cards. I know a little about them but not enough to definitively say what they all are. There is also a large box of software, but not knowing what the cards all are, I do not know if any of the software matches up with what is there (except in a few obvious cases).

I'm planning to sell these so I will be open to offers. But please note, I am shipping from overseas (NZ) so postage may be a little more than you expect. I tried to check what the heaviest card would cost to ship to the US and I was given a quote of approximately $25US. So take that as a rough guide. i.e. lighter cards will be cheaper, and bulk buying cards will also cut down costs as everything will be dependent on weight, not size. I'm also open to any mailing service you can suggest that might bring the cost down (I have only checked at the local post office).

Once the card has been identified, if you are interested, you are welcome to message me your offer. (It's a lot to sort through so it might take me a little while to get back to you). I can then give a postage quote and you will be able to decide if it's still worth it for you to proceed. There's some standard stuff here but a couple of rare ones as far as I can tell (as I can't find much about them on the Internet).

Not sure if it's best just to post them all here as information about each could get lost in the thread. But I don't want to spam the board with multiple threads either. There's probably some limit to the amount of photos I can post, so I guess I'll break it up like that. I'll try to label all photos with my best guess plus a LETTER-NUMBER combo that it can be referred to by. I have other photos from different angles and higher resolutions but I'll keep to one photo per card for now unless you want more information.

Thanks for any assistance you can offer.

Final note - I will probably be accepting the best offer for any card or be posting them on ebay. But if the offer is fair I'm more likely just to accept it to save me the drama of dealing with ebay. I'll also be more likely to accept offers for multiple cards as that will cut down the work for me. Cards are untested but look good visually. Software not included unless pictured. But once I know what the card is I may be able to find any related software among the boxes I have. There are four motherboards as well as some cables and other things. I'll get into those after the cards are have been ID'ed.

That's all of them for now. If you can ID any of them, please post the photo number and what it is. e.g. P1350962 - [8-Bit ISA Serial Parallel Card]

Some may be currently labelled wrong as those were my guesses.

Thank you.

I'm interested in obtaining these as one purchase... Will PM you!

OP, are you there? Haven't gotten any reply. :)


May 11th, 2016, 02:23 AM
Same - I've also sent a PM regarding purchasing a card

May 11th, 2016, 02:23 AM
He can't reply.

FWIW, he didn't get the PM(s) either.

Oh yeah! Forgot about the new user limitations.

Can OP please contact me at neo _ explorer 84 (at) hotmail dotcom regarding purchase of the five cards above? Thank you!

I'm not sure why the OP needs help identifying the cards. From the image titles he seems to have "identified" them about as well as anyone could.

Most of those I/O cards are cheap random Taiwanese clone cards that were not usually sold under a specific brand. To get any more specific one would have to search through the TH99 database http://www.uncreativelabs.de/th99/ and even then there will often not be an exact match.

Perhaps the OP should specify which ones need more information?

I will just point out there are a couple of genuine IBM cards in that lot:
The Async Card:
The floppy disk plus external:
This hard drive controller looks like an IBM XEBEC:
These look like IBM memory cards:
And IBM CGA card, later version:

Also, that Orchid Tiny Turbo 286 will probably be of interest to someone :

Those ISA video cards might be useful to someone, but you would need to post clearer pictures or the chip numbers.

Has anybody heard from the OP at all? :(

May 16th, 2016, 01:01 AM
Nope, I also tried contacting them

Why is everybody surprised? We get these types of post all the time trying to 1. identify cards, 2. figure out worth, or 3. gauge interest. Then the posters disappear never to be heard of again. Expect to see cards worth anything on eBay soon.

Or maybe I am just to much of a glass half empty guy! ;)
