A pristine business check from the early days of Apple, signed by co-founder Steve Jobs, is up for auction at RR Auctions. The lot, which is numbered 192 in the “Fine Autograph and Artifacts Featuring Major Figures of Science and Technology” collection, is expected to be a hot item for collectors of Apple memorabilia.
While auctions featuring Steve Jobs’ personal items are not uncommon, this particular lot is unique in that it is a pristine business check. The check, which was made out to “Crampton, Remke & Miller, INC.” and dated July 8, 1976, is filled out in type and signed by Steve Jobs himself. The check was made out for the amount of $175, and is in “fine to very fine condition,” according to the auctioneer. It has also been pre-certified by PSA/DNA.
The auction for the Steve Jobs check will end on May 11, and at the time of publication, it already had a top bid of $16,500. The final valuation is expected to be in excess of $25,000, according to the auction house.
Other items related to Steve Jobs and Apple have also been up for auction recently. In December 2022, a hand-numbered Apple-I was sold, along with a signed letter. In February 2023, other similar items were also put up for sale.
For collectors of Apple memorabilia, the opportunity to own a piece of the company’s history is a rare and exciting prospect. While the value of the check itself may be relatively small, the fact that it was signed by one of Apple’s co-founders makes it a highly sought-after item. As the auction draws to a close, it will be interesting to see just how much this unique piece of Apple history ends up fetching.
