    A beloved Mac retail shop in Manhattan named TekServe is closing its doors this week after almost 30 years in the business. It’s also selling off its museum of vintage Macs.

    The bidding is currently at $29,000 for the walk down Apple’s memory lane. Of the 35 computers, TekServe boasts an original NeXTcube and a Mac signed by Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak.

    TekServe says the collection is in fair to very good condition.

    If you’re not into Macs, TekServe is also selling off some of its other knick-knacks like a bust of Ben Franklin, vintage Coca-Cola machine and a Cathode Ray Oscillograph.

    If you’re interested, the auction closes in five days, and carries a 25 percent buyer’s premium. If you’ve got the cash and a love of old Macs, jump on it.
