Apple memorabilia fetches more than double the asking price


Late last month we covered some Apple memorabilia that was due to be auctioned off at Sotheby’s in New York. The two items, a working Apple 1 and some hand-written notes penned by Steve Jobs, were expected to fetch between $120,000 and $180,000 (Apple 1) and $10,000 and $15,000 (Steve Jobs’ notes).

The auction has since concluded and the items managed to bypass the price estimates by a considerable margin. The Apple 1, one of 6 that are accounted for out of 50 that are believed to still exist, sold for a staggering $374,500. The hand-written notes from Steve Jobs’ days at Atari sold for $27,500, almost doubling the initial estimate.

If you happen to be sitting on an Apple 1 system in some forgotten corner of the house, now might be the time to see how much someone else is willing to pay for it.
