Now that the parcel is on the way to me, I can safely post the Ebay link. Didn't want anyone to interfere with the transaction.

I really hope it's just some marginal. Broken GPU, CPU or RAM. Empty battery...
Can't see any bulged capacitors.
Saw the thumbnail and thought: "Wait? Is this an Asrock dual PCIe/AGP board?"
I did consider asking for a discount, because it was online since February 2021 at least and I'm a greedy bastard. But didn't want to risk that the seller does some research and realizes that he has something valuable. So I just added the auction to my watch list and slept a night over it. Seller saw that someone is watching and send a 11€ offer.

Oh nice !
Supports up to 2009 Phenom II ... with AGP.
Jupp, unusual indeed.
There is another ASrock board with AGP who supports Phenom II's, the AM2NF3-VSTA. But it has no PCIe slot, so no SATA 6GB/s controller for you. You're stuck with 150MB/s SATA. The ALiveDual on the other hand has SATA II integrated, but will max out at 190MB/s and is only able to do so, if you use an old SATA II drive. SATA 6GB/s drives will be slowed down to 150MB/s as well.
AM2NF3 officially supports X4 970 but will also accept the flagship X4 980. AliveDual officially only supports X4 965 and will NOT post when a X4 980 is installed. Hirsch is working on a fix for that.
They have an Intel sister, the 4CoreDual-SATA2.
But it lacks BIOS options for voltage, so mods are required for overclocking.
Phil dragged a lot of attention on ASrock AGP boards a few years ago, when he advertised the 775i65G.
The NOS boards are long gone. Phil alone bought like 5 of them. 😁
I have seen one of these sell for 100€ now. Boxed but slightly used, so no longer NOS. Insane.
Keep in mind: These were budget boards back in the day and sold for ~50 bucks.
