Historic cheque signed by Steve Jobs in 1976 auctioned at $50,000

Steve Jobs from Apple

Collectors and Apple enthusiasts have a rare opportunity to acquire a significant piece of tech history as an iconic check, signed by Steve Jobs and Steve Wozniak, goes up for auction this month through RR Auction.

The check, dated March 19, 1976, was signed by Jobs and Wozniak a mere 13 days before Apple’s official founding. At that time, Apple’s account with Wells Fargo Bank had not even been formally established. The check represents a pivotal moment in Apple’s early days and holds a special place in the company’s journey, as its routing and account numbers align with other early checks attributed to Apple.

The check was issued to Ramlor, Inc., a printed circuit board company, in the amount of $116.97, which would roughly translate to $630 in today’s currency. RR Auction states that Jobs and Wozniak most likely wrote the check to pay for circuit boards needed for the first Apple-1 computers.

Bidding for this historical artifact has already commenced, with 18 bids received, and the current price stands at an impressive $55,527. The next bid is set at $61,080, and the auction is scheduled to conclude on August 24. While the initial price may appear steep, it is essential to consider recent auction results, where an original 4 GB iPhone fetched over $190,000 and a pair of Apple sneakers was listed for sale at $50,000 through Sotheby’s. Given its significance in tech history, this check undoubtedly appeals to passionate collectors.

RR Auction is also offering more than 50 other Apple-related items for sale until August 24, including functional early Apple computers and a draft ad handwritten by Steve Jobs for the Apple-1 computer.

Apple memorabilia continues to command high prices, and this historic check serves as a tangible piece of the company’s foundation, making it a prized possession for any avid Apple collector.
