Sometimes, people will go to great lengths to bid on items at auction, whether it’s an old classic computer or a personal item belonging to a celebrity. But there was a rather interesting set of items put up for auction recently – a collection of business cards that belonged to ex-Apple CEO Steve Jobs.
Steve Jobs’ business cards auctioned off
The Marin School in San Rafael, California held an auction to raise funds earlier this month, and one of the lots was of special interest to many people in the field of technology – three of Steve Jobs’ business cards.
It turns out that the person who bought them was Tim Knowles, the CEO of Stacks.co, which is an app that’s trying to revolutionise business cards. Knowles paid $10,500 for the privilege of owning the cards and generating some publicity.
He recently said:
If there was ever a business card to have in your rolodex – it would certainly be Steve’s – we wouldn’t be doing what we are doing right now if it wasn’t for him!
Stacks is a private company, so Knowles actually paid his own money to help the Marin School and promote his business instead of using the investors’ cash.
Would you pay thousands of dollars for anyone’s business cards, no matter how important or famous they were? Let us know in the comments below.
