Apple, Jobs, and Computer Hardware
This specially curated computer history auction brings to light the ‘lost’ “Apple Computer A” prototype, used by Steve Jobs to demonstrate the Apple-1 and secure Apple Computer Co.’s first big order in 1976. This is a remarkable discovery of Steve Jobs’s own Apple-1 prototype, which resided on the ‘Apple Garage’ property for many years before being given by Jobs to its current owner approximately 30 years ago. The rest of the auction chronicles the rise of Apple, with early Steve Jobs autographs, significant examples of innovative hardware (from the Macintosh to the iPhone), a remarkable swatch archive from Apple’s ‘color guru,’ and several items affiliated with Steve Wozniak. The sale goes on to represent the boundary-pushing rivalry between Apple and Microsoft—highlighted by a TRS-80 Model 100 owned and used by Bill Gates—as well items from several other personal computing pioneers and revolutionaries.
Fine Autographs and Artifacts
RR Auction’s September Fine Autographs and Artifacts sale boasts an extraordinary selection of over 900 items, with a special focus on Hollywood, classical music, and icons of history. Among the Hollywood rarities represented are horror heroes Edward Van Sloan, Tod Browning, Ed Wood, James Whale, and Rondo Hatton, plus icons like Marilyn Monroe, Alfred Hitchcock, John Wayne, and the Marx Brothers. Perhaps even more remarkable are the exceedingly rare autographs of three great composers—Frederic Chopin, Ludwig van Beethoven, and Franz Joseph Haydn. The auction is rounded out by unseen photos of Elon Musk, a handwritten letter by 16-year-old Napoleon Bonaparte, and autographs of Stephen Hawking, Albert Einstein, and Benjamin Franklin. RR Auction is a globally recognized and trusted auction house specializing in historical autographs and artifacts. Join us as we make history selling history in September 2022.

Other top autographs include Al Capone, Mohandas Gandhi, Jimi Hendrix, the Beatles, John Dillinger, Paul Revere, Bruce Lee, Winston Churchill, and Pablo Picasso.
