A rare Steve Jobs signed issue of Macworld magazine will be auctioned by Boston-based RR Auction. The original issue of Macworld #1 from February 1984, signed and inscribed on the front cover in black ink, "to Matt, steven jobs” will be auctioned by Boston-based RR Auction.
The cover depicts Jobs as Apple Computer's chairman of the board, posing with a trio of Macintosh computers. Jobs signed the copy at the grand opening of the Apple Store on Fifth Avenue in New York on May 19, 2006. Accompanied by a photo of Jobs signing this exact magazine, and a video of him signing can be seen online.
Jobs's autograph is notoriously rare for a modern public figure—in the video, he at first jokingly refuses to sign for a man in a wheelchair, before acquiescing to the request and asking his name ("Matt" is heard off camera). Jobs then reluctantly signs the magazine, adding the a quick inscription to "Matt." (Estimate: $10,000+ )
Also featured is a Steve Jobs original Apple Computer business card as chairman of the board, and an Apple “Think Different” poster set. Bidding begins Dec 6 and ends Dec 13. More details can be found online at www.rrauction.com.
