Form of employment 

Steve Jobs filled out this job application form in 1973 , just after leaving Reed College where he was studying for approximately six months. In this curious document, Steve Jobs mentions English literature as studies and marks "Computer" and "Calculator" as skills, to which he wanted to add technology, design and electronics.

It is estimated that this employment questionnaire is valued at more than $ 50,000 for the auction.

Mac OS X Manual 

Along with the form, a Steve Jobs signature will also be auctioned in an extensive Mac OS X technical manual . He has a little story about how the signing was obtained in a parking lot after an Apple session in Cupertino.

"It was afternoon, the end of my practice day and I just got to my car when I saw Mr. Steve Jobs walking towards his car. I lowered the window of my car and called him by his name. He asked me if he knew me. I told him that I certainly knew him and I immediately asked him if he would be so kind as to sign my technical administration manual for Mac OS X. He refused and said he felt strange doing that. But I refused to give up. After flattering him for a while, he finally told me to hand him the manual and a pen. He said give it to me and autographed my manual. "

This signed manual is valued at approximately $ 25,000 when it goes on sale, and is compared to a magazine that sold for $ 50,000 in October 2017.

Newspaper clipping 

The last article is a simple newspaper cut signed in which he talks about the launch of "a new iPhone faster by 199 dollars." In the photograph of the cutout Steve Jobs appears during a WWDC in San Francisco. It also comes with its history:

"Steve, politely, refused several times commenting that all the success of Apple was due to a group effort, so he did not like to sign or take the credit for anything. My mother is quite persuasive and managed to convince him to sign; but under the condition of Steve Jobs that the person who was sitting with him also signed. It was Tony Fadell, known as the father of the iPod. "

The autograph of this newspaper clipping is valued at about $ 15,000 . As previously mentioned, the auction will take place between the 8th and the 15th of March in RR Auction.
