It looks like Parallax produced at least a few different QBUS framebuffer

It's probably the MDB QBUS equivalent of a DEC DR11-W, which is a
"General purpose DMA parallel interface".

This sounds like the cab kit for an 11/23+, or possibly an 11/53.

That's a VCB02 framebuffer card for a QBUS VaxStation.

Nothing looks particularly valuable from the list. I'd say $5-10 per
item would be a fair value, unless you find someone who has a real need
for one of them.
