Pre-Apple check by Jobs and Woz up for auction

Source: RR Auctions

A check made out by Steve Jobs and Steve Wozniak for components while creating the Apple I is up for auction alongside Jobs's handwritten advertising draft and other rare memorabilia.

Steve Jobs checks have been auctioned before, but this one now accepting bids on RR Auction, is only the second-ever check written by him and Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak. It predates Apple itself by some 13 days, and is a temporary check before their account was officially opened.

Dated March 19, 1976, temporary check number 2 is made out to a printed circuit board company for the amount of $116.97 (worth around $630 today). RR Auction says that it is a Wells Fargo check, 7.5 inches by 3 inches, and although temporary, it bears the same routing and account numbers as other early Apple checks.

It's believed that the check to Ramlor, Inc was for printed circuit boards that were to be used in the first Apple I computers.

RR Auctions estimates that the check will sell for at least $50,000.

The auction is open until August 24, 2023, and comprises over 50 Apple-related items. As well as the check, there is a draft ad for the Apple I computer handwritten by Steve Jobs, and functional computers including an Apple I and an Apple Lisa.
