$700 for a C64? Egads, you've been watching too much bad cable TV.
Nice payday on the poster. I going to speculate that it's specific to the
Silicon Valley one because of the recent hype of the TV show.

No wonder the prices on vintage computer stuff has
been going through the
roof on eBay over the past couple years.
If you spent $1,000 on a Commodore 64 system in 1985,
that's about $2,800 in today's dollars, courtesy of inflation.
A working C-64 system might go for $700 on eBay today? But people
were giving them away not long ago. It's the bathtub curve.
I have a bunch of old Amiga posters up there now. I thought they'd
fetch nice prices but they've seen little interest so far.
I have other R@RE items I'll list. Who knows how they'll do.
I have a NewTek Digiview digitizer that is the populated circuit board.
The chips have not been sanded to remove their numbers, nor is
it potted in epoxy like all the retail production units.
I saw a recent sale of a Digiview-labelled parallel port gender-changer
that went for $30. Go figure. I have at least one.

Holy crap, someone actually paid $810 for it?
They paid almost another $200 on top for the eBay global shipping program
and custom duties, too, as I had said I'll only ship to the USA.
