Apple founding documents, drawn up by former Apple founder Ron Wayne, was auctioned off earlier this week at a Sotheby’s auction where they ended up selling for an astonishing $1.35 million. That’s quite a premium from the $70,000 original asking price, and well over the $150,000 the documents were expecting to sell for.
The winning bidder was Eduardo Cisneros, the CEO of Cisneros Corp. According to Fortune, the Cisneros family as of 2006 were the second wealthiest in all of South America. Cooking in Sotheby’s fee into the equation, Cisneros will have to fork over a total of $1.59 million.
I guess you have your fanboys, and then you have your fanmen.
And below is the final minute of bidding. I can’t lie, I was a little disappointed that the dude from Sotheby wasn’t a fast-talking carny like character. Also, how come there’s no “Going once.. going twice” in this clip?
