Apple Computer Check Signed by Steve Jobs Sells for $46,000

Saturday December 9, 2023. 12:13 AM , from MacRumors
A check signed by former Apple CEO and co-founder Steve Jobs sold for $46,063 at auction this week. Issued by 'Apple Computer Company' in 1976, the $4.01 check was made out to electronics retailer RadioShack.

Jobs filled out the check on July 23, 1976, which was the time that he and Steve Wozniak were working on the Apple-1 computer. The two produced approximately 200 Apple-1 machines, 50 of which were sold to The Byte Shop in July 1976 and retailed for $666.66.

The RadioShack check lists a Palo Alto address for an answering service and mail drop off point that Jobs used while Apple was being run out of his parents' garage.

RR Auction expected the check to sell for at least $25,000, but it sold for more. Apple and Steve Jobs memorabilia has been fetching higher and higher prices in recent years.

Another check signed by Steve Jobs was put up for auction this week by Sothebys, and it too could sell for upwards of $40,000. The check predates Apple's April 1, 1976 founding date as it was written on March 28, 1976. It is one of a handful of checks issued to Jobs and Wozniak ahead of when they received their custom-printed Apple Computer Company checkbook.This article, "Apple Computer Check Signed by Steve Jobs Sells for $46,000" first appeared on MacRumors.comDiscuss this article in our forums
