Description

Apple award recognizing "ten years of creativity," signed by Steve Jobs

Rare Apple Computer ten-year award plaque presented to Suzanne Lindbergh in 2000, 6 x 12, signed at the bottom in black felt tip, "Steve Jobs." The text reads: "This ten-year plaque recognizes those who have contributed a decade of personal achievement to Apple's phenomenal success. Apple honors you not only for your talent, enthusiasm, and energy, but also for your ten years of creativity and career commitment. We hope you continue to believe, as we do, that the journey in itself is the best reward." The display's plastic glaze has "Ten" elegantly etched in vertical italicized lettering. Framed and in fine condition, with some light rippling. Accompanied by a full letter of authenticity from PSA/DNA.

This plaque was issued shortly after Jobs returned to Apple, and is one of few authentically signed examples—the company soon transitioned to facsimile signatures on the anniversary awards. A member of Apple's innovative marketing department, Lindbergh spent 25 years at the company, rising to 'Worldwide Director of Buzz Marketing' before leaving in 2013. In that role, she was in charge of product placement of Apple devices in movies and television shows. A supremely desirable Apple award signed by the company's innovative co-founder.
