The actor (today he works as an entrepreneur in the food industry) has been repeatedly photographed with his Rolex "Cosmograph Daytona" ; a gift from his wife Joanne Woodward.

It's hard to believe, but there were things in Steve Jobs's life that the visionary and Apple co-founder didn't tackle with full vigor. There is no other way of explaining the letter of application, which is bursting with spelling errors and indifference and which is now open for auction.

Letter of application from Steve Jobs will be auctioned

From February 24 to March 24, 2021, interested parties can bid at the Chatterfields auction house and bid on the very special document from Jobs' past.

Carroll Shelby's Original, Owned-Since-New 427 Cobra Up For Auction

  Carroll Shelby's Original, Owned-Since-New 427 Cobra Up For Auction A restoration returned it to the original specification. The Shelby 427 Cobra is an American automotive icon, and Mecum is putting a unique example up for sale at its auction in Kissimmee, Florida, from January 7 through 16. The roadster with serial number CSX3178 belonged to company founder Carroll Shelby from new in March 1966. Shelby still owned the car when he died in 2012, and his estate sold it in 2016. Over the course of Shelby's ownership, he had this Cobra repainted Guardsman Blue with a gold nose and installed an automatic transmission. In 2002, the car got a red paint job.

The letter of application in question is dated 1973. At that time, 18-year-old student Steve Jobs filled out a questionnaire for a company that is still unknown to this day. The curious thing is the motivation with which Jobs must have filled out the form. In addition to an abundance of spelling errors - Steve Jobs didn't even spell his name correctly - the other details are also a sign of his indifference to this job.

He also stated that he did not have a telephone. He has a driver's license, but no car. But he could get this, but it was probably not. But his passion for computers and everything related to it also shows up in this application. He stated that he already had experience with "computers and pocket calculators" and that he had special skills in the areas of "electronics technician or development engineer - digital".

Document will probably bring in a large amount of money.

This is not the first time that the application form, signed with Steve Jobs' original signature, is going under the hammer. As early as 2018, a bidder bought the document for around 175,000 US dollars, with those responsible for the auction reckoning with only 50,000 US dollars, as Computer Bild writes. A year earlier, the document brought in around 18,750 US dollars.

The minimum bid for the current auction should therefore be around 15,000 British pounds, i.e. around 17,000 euros. Finanzen.net editors
