A Macintosh floppy drive signed by late Apple CEO Steve Jobs is up for auction, with a value that’s estimated at $7,500.
Bidding is currently taking place at the website RR Auction, and here’s the description of the listing:
“Macintosh System Tools Version 6.0 floppy disk, signed in black felt tip, “steve jobs.” In fine condition, with slight brushing to the ink. A hugely desirable format for Jobs’s seldom-seen autograph—known as a reluctant signer, he often declined to comply with the requests of collectors. As a piece of Apple’s iconic Mac OS software, boasting Jobs’s elegantly stylish lowercase signature, this is a museum-quality piece of computing history.”
With bidding going on right now, the current bid has the floppy disk going home for $4,600, with the next bid set for $5,060. According to the listing, the signed floppy disk has an estimated value of $7,500.
It’s the latest piece of memorabilia autographed by the iconic businessman to be put up for auction for thousands of dollars. A commemorative plaque with Jobs’ signature was valued at $15,000 when it went up for auction earlier this year, and a copy of Macworld that Jobs autographed was valued at $10,000. Both of those auctions also took place at RR Auction.
