Apple IIgs and Steve Jobs’ autograph: two curious stories

- Advertisement -

Two different objects, only one point in common: both they come from Apple. One is one plate signed in original by Steve Jobsthe other a Apple IIgs (but it’s not one of those found in a landfill a few days ago) complete with a LaserWriter 2 printer, AppleColor RGB monitor and two 3.5″ Apple Drive units. Two objects, two different stories.


Let’s start with the autograph of Steve Jobs. The object in question is a plaque given to Suzanne Lindbergh in 2000 for her 10 years spent at Apple (in all she worked there for 25 years, until 2013, dealing with the positioning of Apple products in films and TV shows): deliver an acknowledgment to employees who had spent a decade with the company was a custom of that period, but there are few original signatures of the co-founder and CEO on these awards, later replaced by a facsimile.

The plaque signed by Steve Jobs is for sale on the site of Moments in Time to $95,000.


A Reddit user won astorage auction * winning an Apple IIgs computer complete with accessories: the amount paid for the goods was $250the overall value appears to be far superior since some of the products are still in original sealed packaging (an Apple IIgs was recently sold at auction for $ 2,000, just to have a reference value).

* auction of products previously bought but not paid for by the buyer and which the seller auctions off to try to recover part of the debt. Usually the auction takes place in the darki.e. without the participants knowing the content of the goods. It is very frequent especially in the USA through television programs, in other cases it occurs mainly online.

Usually these auctions do not offer valuable products, but in this case the lucky buyer managed to get hold of a small fortune for a few dollars: in fact, the package contained present the PC, a LaserWriter 2 printer, an AppleColor RGB monitor and two 3.5″ Apple Drives.
