Description

Time Magazine cover from 1982, signed by "steve jobs" as one of 'America's Risk Takers'

Rare magazine cover featuring Steve Jobs removed from the February 15, 1982 issue of Time, 8 x 10.5, neatly signed in the lower left in black ink, “steve jobs.” The cover story, “Striking It Rich,” portrays “Steven Jobs of Apple Computer” as one of “America’s Risk Takers.” In fine condition, with intersecting folds and a trimmed left edge. Encapsulated in a PSA/DNA authentication holder. Accompanied by the original Apple Computer mailing envelope, postmarked at Cupertino, California, on March 17, 1982.

The Time article described the nation’s upstart tech entrepreneurs whose firms were beginning to meet with massive success—Apple went public with an IPO in 1980, and had grown dramatically by 1982. At the end of the year, it was rumored that Jobs was under consideration as a finalist for Time’s ‘Man of the Year’—instead, Time named ‘The Computer’ as its ‘Machine of the Year.’ A superior signed piece rooted in the beginnings of Steve Jobs's much-publicized success.
