Dataspan-50 expansion board for Commodore VIC-20.

Only a fellow neomaxizoomdweebie (ultimate modern nerd), like me, could fully appreciate something as cool as this retro expansion board. Unobtainium at its finest, and now its mine.  Just look at that rotary selector!  From 1982.

- 5-slot expansion. 
- Write-protection on two slots.  
- Fully buffered. 
- System reset. 
- Gold contacts. 
- Fused. 

Rotisserie cartridge selection!
Gold; buffers; switches and slots.

Rare, magazine, print ad.

I have additional VIC-20 material over on my web site:
Are you interested in computer history?  Join the irregular regulars Earl Evans, David Greelish, and Carrington Vanston, plus surprise guests, in the show where everything old is news again.  Gather 'round a virtual table where today's talk is about yesterday's computers. Get the skinny from the world of vintage computer hobbyists, collectors, enthusiasts, and old school geeks. They cover modern day vintage tech events, new developments for old hardware, the revival of retro tech, the best of 8 bit culture, and take many strolls down memory lane.  Head on over to and explore podcasts, review show notes and be informed of upcoming episodes.  You'll be glad you did!
