    It's as old as me so I don't know how this could be considered collectable etc... it's too new.

    There are some used white ceramic chips that sell for over $800 USD ... though most white ceramic chips go for under $200 USD. Old rare cards can ell for a lot of money if the right person is willing to pay.
    Education is the key to identifying what is valuable .... HERE is a LINK to the Ebay sold pages for old computer stuff.

    ...it was my poor attempt at humor - "too new - same age as I am" means I am saying I am not old or, I am not an antique or I am in denial of my age.

    Just to clarify I am not 48 until December of this year 2019 in case you did the math and assumed I was already 48. HA... still younger than you thought.

    Good thing no one scrapped it. lol
    Makes me thing twice about scrapping some computer stuff now. But then again, things today are alot more mass produced so it's probably not going to become a collectable for a very long time.
