Classic Sound Cards? (Re: Roland SCC 1 GS MIDI Card)

Anyone collect antique sound cards? What would be considered a "Classic?"

Here's my list:
E-Mu/Digidesign MacProteus - NuBus card for Mac, a whole Proteus sound
module on a card. One of the all time classic synthesizer modules.
E-Mu Drumulator - Early 80's drum machine with computer (Apple II!)
Gravis UltraSound - Enough said...
Digidesign Samplecell - Sampler card, I've always wanted to play with one of
Ensoniq SoundScape - Early hardware wavetable card. 68000 controlled (had to
load the firmware from DOS before booting into Linux to get it to work) Nice
sounding samples for it's time.
Creative Labs SoundBlaster 16 - The old standard, now superceeded by AC'97.
MediaVision ProAudio Spectrum - An early SoundBlaster competitor, arguably
much better quality sound output

My collection:
Ensoniq SoundScape ISA - The original model
Ensoniq AudioPCI - ES1370 model, interesting because you can use
SoundBlaster PCI64 drivers with it, it's the same card :)
MediaVision ProAudio Spectrum 16 NuBus - One of the first Mac sound cards,
cool breakout box with PC joystick port
Creative Labs 3doBlaster - 3DO game console on an ISA card. No drivers or
anything, but it's so wierd it's cool.
