Steve Jobs Apple Business Card (c. 1983)

This lot has closed

Estimate: $1000+

Description

Scarce circa 1983 Apple Computer business card of Steve Jobs, 3.5 x 2, listing him as "Steven Jobs, Chairman Board of Directors." The off-white card features the iconic 'rainbow' version of the Apple 'byte' logo, and lists the company's address at "10260 Bandley Drive, Cupertino California 95014." In very good to fine condition, with light soiling.

As Apple Computer began to take off after the release of the Apple II, larger office space was needed to house its growing operations. In January 1978, Apple moved into it's custom-built 'Bandley 1' headquarters at 10260 Bandley Drive in Cupertino. The new facility offered office and warehouse space, engineering and demonstration areas, and a manufacturing/production room. Steve Jobs reportedly got his own office because nobody wanted to share one with him, and investor/marketer Mike Markkula also had his own because he sometimes smoked cigarettes while working. Though no longer occupied by Apple, the Bandley 1 space is just blocks away from the current campus at 1 Infinite Loop.
