Jobs' 1973 job application sells for a cool $174,757 at auction
When we last checked in at the auction, the high bid for the document was $50,000. Now, the auction is over and the paper signed by the 18-year old future executive was sold for $174,757. To put it another way, instead of spending that amount on Jobs' job application, the buyer could have purchased a little more than 981 shares of Apple at current prices. Or, he/she could have bought 166 256GB Apple iPhone X units. The difference is that the document is a one of a kind item that is more than just a mere conversation piece. The winning bid is said to have come from an anonymous internet entrepreneur who lives in London.
To see how much Steve Jobs memorabilia is valued by collectors, consider that RR Auction's current lot of Americana includes a letter signed by Martha Washington and stamped by her hubby, a missive written by Ben Franklin, and John Hancock's John Hancock. All of them have estimates well under the $174,757 that Jobs' application fetched. And the latter document wasn't even signed by the Apple co-founder.
The bottom line is that for all of the important achievements that these men accomplished, it was Steve Jobs who unveiled on the Apple iPhone on January 9th, 2007.
