A floppy disk signed by Steve Jobs has sold at an auction for $84,115. The seller was shocked, being the bidding started at $1,000, and was expected to sell for $7,500.
Steve Jobs wasn't known for signing Apple memorabilia, so when the item showed up on the auction site with a certificate of authenticity, nerds everywhere went nuts.
"Macintosh System Tools Version 6.0 floppy disk, signed in black felt tip, "steve jobs."
