"Stephen G. Wozniak", "steven p. jobs" and "Ronald Wayne". The latter had the best signature on Apple Computer's founding contract, signed on April 1st, 1976. Too bad he used it again to sell his 10% share for $800.


Today, his 10% would have had a $35 billion market capitalization. Wayne always says he doesn't regret selling because at the time it was the best choice. Whatever, Ronald, WHATEVER.

The two contracts, the one founding the company and the one with Wayne selling his shares, are going to be auctioned by Sotheby's on December 13. The company believes the lot may reach $150,000. [Sotheby's via Paul Fraser]



dear whoever will buy this: please find a school in your area and buy $150,000 worth of apple computers for it instead, heck two or three schools. Consider it an investment instead of a "pissing away of good money." Plus, i know how much you rich types like those tax write offs.
