Jobs called the limousine company to complain about the autograph request.
It comes from a former chauffeur, Terry, and there’s an interesting little backstory about it. While Jobs agreed to Terry’s autograph request, he decided to give some feedback to the limo company…
The recipient, Terry, was one of Jobs’ chauffeur drivers for several years before asking Jobs to sign this magazine. Jobs subsequently called the limousine company to complain about the autograph request.
Items autographed by Steve Jobs are rare and usually command tens of thousands of dollars. Last year we saw a Jobs signed floppy disk go for $84,000, while an autographed Pixar poster scooped up $31,000.
The new piece of Steve Jobs signed memorabilia is up for grabs this week. Starting on July 30, an autographed Fortune Magazine issue featuring Jobs on the cover will be auctioned off with bidding starting at $11,000 and it also comes with a funny backstory.
