Wildcard Plus

I was donated some hardware and software in Summer 2016 by an older gentlemen and this very nice boxed WILDCARD PLUS (as it works with //e as well) came with the donation.  I am not sure if these cards were sold here in Finland, or if they were ordered from the States.

The card was of cos ment for copying (mainly single loading) software by capturing the memory after the software had loaded up and saving it to disk, even compressed into a single file. Very handy tool for non-cracker people who wanted to make their personal “backups”. This is later version which works with the Apple //e as well (64k). Later there were also an WILDCARD 2 (Alaskacard) which was able to capture full 128k memory. This is something i am missing from my collection.
