Ceiling board in garage

I do have an utility room in garage. There are ceiling boards in that room. I am not sure whether they can contain asbestos. Do they look like asbestos insulation board or asbestos ceiling tile? I'd appreciate if you let me know what they are. The previous owner said that he bought it from Ernst Home Center in late 80s.

I'm only guessing but I don't think they are. What's more important is what are you planning to do with them? If you paint them and if they are asbestos you'll be sealing it and no problem. If you are removing them and they are not dusting or flaking then you should be OK.
