I usually don’t post about auctions of Apple memorabilia but true one of a kind items really strike a cord with me, and that’s exactly what this one did.
I’m not going to be a player in this auction and would love to see one of my My Favorite Apple friends end up getting these.
Ending June 4 are two original Apple logo signs that hung on the Apple corporate buildings. We’ve seen these exact signs in pictures in various Apple history books and videos. Yes, I realize the opening bid is $10,000 but items like this are true rare Apple collectibles, more so than buying a machine that was produced by the thousands. There probably aren’t but a few of these in existence, assuming if there were others that someone saved them like this seller did.
An auctioneer friend of mine emailed me and his link took me to my friends at the Cult of Mac, and here they said,
“From 1993 until 1997, Apple’s rainbow logo smiled down from the east-facing side of Infinite Loop’s Building 3 as drivers sped north on Highway 280.”
I saved this auction for my archive and will follow it. Good luck and if you end up with these, please let me know.
