- This specially curated computer history auction brings to light the 'lost' "Apple Computer A" prototype, used by Steve Jobs to demonstrate the Apple-1 and secure Apple Computer Co.'s first big order in 1976. This is a remarkable discovery of Steve Jobs's own Apple-1 prototype, which resided on the ‘Apple Garage’ property for many years before being given by Jobs to its current owner approximately 30 years ago. The rest of the auction chronicles the rise of Apple, with early Steve Jobs autographs, significant examples of innovative hardware (from the Macintosh to the iPhone), a remarkable swatch archive from Apple's 'color guru,' and several items affiliated with Steve Wozniak. The sale goes on to represent the boundary-pushing rivalry between Apple and Microsoft—highlighted by a TRS-80 Model 100 owned and used by Bill Gates—as well items from several other personal computing pioneers and revolutionaries.
This is a timed auction.
