If you thought the $74,000 CAD highest-end Mac Pro was expensive, a floppy disk signed by Steve Jobs recently sold at auction for $84,115 USD (roughly $111,381 CAD).
According to iMore, the bidding started at $1,000 USD (about $1,327 CAD) and was only expected to sell for around $7,500 USD (approximately $9928 CAD).
RR Auction states that Jobs often declined to sign items, which explains why this signed floppy disk ended up costing more than a Tesla.
“Macintosh System Tools Version 6.0 floppy disk, signed in black felt tip, ‘steve jobs.’ In fine condition, with slight brushing to the ink. A hugely desirable format for Jobs’s seldom-seen autograph — known as a reluctant signer, he often declined to comply with the requests of collectors. As a piece of Apple’s iconic Mac OS software, boasting Jobs’s elegantly stylish lowercase signature, this is a museum-quality piece of computing history.” reads RR Auction’s description.
