DOS cards - any for the LC Macs?

I recently thought about the DOS-compatible cards that were made for the quadras, centri (centrises?), Power Macs, and other Macs, and was wondering if there were any IBM/DOS-compatible cards made for the LC line of Macs. I haven't found any on eBay, but I know some exist for the Macintosh SE.

There were Nubus ones too. Someone on here has one in a IIfx. I have one in a Performa (LC / Quadra) 630. With some ugly hacking to add an external video and audio port you might get it working in an LC475, without the case closed.

Wait, actually, a couple of years ago I swear I saw one on eBay for a pizzabox LC. Sold for a fortune though. Or more than I was willing to pay. Only one I've seen. I didn't save the details though.

Did you see it @Bolle @cheesestraws?

Edit - I really feel like I'm imaging it. Assume they don't exist unless someone knows of one.

I was about to ask if it would be possible to use this board in an LC III then I noticed the 040 so it might be possible to put it into an LC 475

It uses a special video+audio i/o port on the board, so you'd have to make cables and possibly a small circuit to get the video and sound out. Doable... but not casually.

I was a cluster consultant in a room full of 6100s and music students would power the machines off, losing their work, all the time trying to eject floppies.
