Scarce group lot of Apple office supplies from the early 1980s: an unopened notepad block of 850 sheets, 4 x 4, with the Apple logo to one side and business text to two others; a blue faux leather folio, 9.5 x 12.25, with Apple Computer debossed on the front and the inside marked “Apple III, The Professional Solution,” which also contains a silver-tone Cross ballpoint pen with enamel Apple logo to clip; and Apple ballpoint pens (2) and a pencil by Cross, all measuring 5.25″ in length, with each clip featuring Rob Janoff’s iconic rainbow Apple logo set in enamel against a black circle. The back end of each barrel is identically etched: “10KT Gold Filled-USA, Electroplated Emblem.” Includes a pair of Cross cases, which bear some wear. In overall fine condition.
The consignor notes that these Apple office supplies originate from Alpha Computers of Richland, a computer shop in Richland, Washington, that was owned by her father in the early 1980s. The store specialized in Apple computer products and provided customers with repair services as well as hands-on computer training.
