Business Card Signed By Steve Jobs Sells for a Record $181,183

Late inventor and Apple co-founder Steve Jobs never liked signing autographs for fans. This is one of the reasons why his signature is one of the most sought-after among collectors and why a signed business card from Jobs recently sold for a record $181,183 at an auction organized by RR Auction.

The business card, signed in black ink, features Apple’s iconic logo in rainbow colors at the top alongside the inscription Apple Computer. It also contains Jobs’ full name, his position as chairman of the board of directors, and contact information.

According to RR Auction, this is the only known business card signed by Steve Jobs from 1983 and also the only one of five signed cards that were authenticated. 

“The sale of the Steve Jobs-signed Apple business card for over $180,000 sets a new standard in autographed business cards,” said RR Auction’s executive vice president Bobby Livingston in a statement. “It’s a testament to the enduring legacy of Jobs and the profound impact of Apple on our modern world.”

The business card was part of the larger lot of Steve Jobs memorabilia offered up for auction. A check from 1976 signed by Jobs was sold for $176,850, while his autograph on a Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl movie ticket went for $14,653.
