Managed to sweep up a trio of cards on eBay, including the Z80 card I was holding out for. Got a good price on it, would have paid that much just for the Z80 card alone.

So it's a Z80 card, a Disk II card and.. a mystery card! The D27160 is an EPROM but beyond that I have no idea. There is a two pin connector on the card that resembles the Apple II speaker connector - is it a sound card?

Do you have those cards sitting on bubble wrap? ESD??

Re: Need a card identified

upper card: Z80 clone card for cpm
lower left card: disk II drive clone card
lower right: seems to be a kind of software protection dongle card....
( picture from solderside requested for confirmation.... )
alternate chances:
kind of crackshot clone
or interface to lightpen

RE the bubble wrap, not my choice, was the sellers image. In my experience it's probably fine but not the best!

RE Wildcard - interesting! Useless in 2017... but interesting. I'll have some more photos once it's shipped to me.

Thanks all for the fast turnaround with info.

Put the mystery card in Slot 5 or Slot 7 and type PR#5 (or 7) and see what you get on the screen.
Also, try bridging the contact momentarily to see if it is indeed a copy card.

Yep. It's a wild card. Looks just like mine. The momentary push button goes on the two pin post on the upper right.
