Congratulations! Where does one find _three_ Crimsons these days?

I would consider going there myself to pack them,, Crimsons are 
somewhate fragile. Not extremely so, like some SGI machines, but there 
are some places you shouldn't lift.

Perhaps you could find an SGI collector in california to help you in 
exchange for one of them. Check out nekochan.
