Business cards weren’t passé in Steve Jobs’ days, and one family was smart enough to hang onto a couple of them. Now they’ll go to the highest bidder as The Marin School puts three vintage Steve Jobs business cards up for auction.
A family who attends the school used to do catering for the Apple CEO and had held onto cards, said Sierra Antonio, Director of Communications at The Marin School. Spanning 1984 to 1990, the cards are from Jobs’ days as CEO of NeXT and Chairman of Apple and Pixar.
Right now, the opening bid is $600 for the three cards, and the auction will be open for a week. After the online closes, it goes to a live event and gala to benefit the northern California school, but absentee bidding will be offered through the site. It’s a little piece of tech history — and for a good cause.
