I am not quite sure why Apple’s founding documents has ended up at Sotheby’s New York, but it seems as though if you want to bring home a literal piece of history to your living room, then you would do well to prepare at least $100,000 – although there are whispers on the street that the winning bid might even cost another 50% more than that. This three-page document will feature the John Hancock of Steve Jobs, Steve Wozniak as well as Ronald Wayne, clearly establishing the presence and name of Apple Computer Company three and a half decades ago.
Not only that, Sotheby’s New York decide to sweeten the deal by including Ronald Wayne’s Statement of Withdrawal as part of the entire package, where this document let Ronald give up his 10% stake in the business – which amounts up to $2.6 billion today. I wonder how I would feel if I did not have such foresight, surely it is not a very nice feeling?
