- Doyle is auctioning off an Apple II Plus lid signed by Steve Jobs and Steve Wozniak.
- It was acquired by Thomas Earl Neudecker II in 1984 and could fetch $30,000.
A rare piece of Apple history is going under the hammer later this month, in an auction that could fetch up to $30,000.
Neudecker was a professor at the University of Pittsburgh, running projects to research the impact of technology in K-12 schools, reportedly emphasizing how technology could help teachers in their day-to-day accessories. He attended Apple's January 1984 event where Apple unveiled a new Macintosh computer, bringing the lid of his own Apple II Plus with him to get it signed.
An estimate on the listing says the piece could fetch anywhere between $20-$30,000. Bids go live on November 24 at 10 am ET.
