You should probably expect to pay a lot for anything Sun 2 and even more 
for Sun 1. There are a couple hardcore early Sun collectors hunting ebay 
that will pay as much as it takes to get them. I suspect the 2/50 went 
to one of them. I saw a Sun 1 multibus cpu card for $600 a few years 
ago. Not even a whole sun 1. Just the cpu card. A compete Sun 1 is 
probably going to go for a mess.  Sun 3 stuff can still be had fairly 
cheap but, shipping will kill you on Sun 3 stuff. They weigh a ton. You 
can still actually find Sun 3 stuff for free but, if it ain't local it 
really isn't free. It's like $75 to ship a 3/60 anywhere. Freight for 
any of the VME servers.
