Description


Original issue of Macworld #1 from February 1984, 144 pages, 9 x 10.75, signed and inscribed on the front cover in black ink, "to Matt, steven jobs." The classic cover depicts Jobs as Apple Computer's chairman of the board, posing with a trio of Macintosh computers. In fine condition, with light handling and edge wear. Introduced in February 1984, Macworld magazine became the most popular Macintosh-focused magazine in North America; the premier issue is scarce and desirable in its own right. Steve Jobs signed this 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 it is available on YouTube. 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." An exceptional piece with ironclad photographic provenance. Accompanied by full letters of authenticity from PSA/DNA and Beckett Authentication Services.
