Three Steve Jobs Autographed Items to be Offered at Auction

Posted in Apple on 21/02/2018 by Chris Hauk


A Boston auction firm is preparing to auction three items said to be autographed by late Apple co-founder and CEO Steve Jobs. The items are considered rare, due to Jobs’ reported reluctance to giving out his signature.

The most valuable item is a 1973 job application, in which an 18-year-old Jobs was looking for work as an “electronics tech or design engineer,” according to RR Auction. While the starting bid is $5,000, the final value is expected to hit $50,000 or more. 

Also being offered for auction is a “Mac OS X Administration Basics” manual signed by Jobs in the Apple parking lot in 2001, and a WWDC article from the Palo Alto Daily Post, dated June 10, 2008. Bidding on the signed manual will start at a mere $1,000, but it is expected to fetch over $25,000. The WWDC article will start at $2,500, and is expected to go for around $15,000 or more.

The signatures have all reportedly been analyzed and authenticated by third-party firm PSA/DNA. The auction will start March 8, and will end on March 15.
