Cool Hypercard Advertisements

In 1987, the year HyperCard came out, I was 12 years old. This was the same year my school got about 14 IBM PC's and the same year my Dad brought home what was later deemed on many lists as the worst PC of all time, the IBM PCjr. I was horrified.

Hey TheNixer. Good to see a fellow 68KMLAer here on RMC. As usual, love the pictures. :-)
