A floppy disk signed by Steve Jobs may fetch $7.5k at auction
A Macintosh floppy disk signed by Steve Jobs will be auctioned by Boston-based RR Auction on December 4. It’s expected to fetch around $7,500.
The floppy disk consists is a Macintosh System Tools Version 6.0 disk, signed in black felt tip.
Jobs was a reluctant autographer at the best of times, so there is usually a lot of interest in items signed by him.
Also up for auction is an original Apple Computer business card for Steve Jobs as chairman of the board, 3.5 x 2, featuring the company’s colorful rainbow logo.
“There continues to be a very strong market for Steve Jobs related memorabilia, along with other late-century icons of technology,” said Bobby Livingston, Exec VP at RR Auction.
This auctioneer has sold many Apple-related items over the years. In 2018 it sold a Jobs-autographed Mac OS X manual for $41,000. That the same year it sold a Steve Jobs signed job application for $174,757 and a fully functional Apple-1 for $375,000.
