Apple’s Classic Headquarters Signs up for Bidding: Rotten Fruits

by Lambert Varias

Were you about to buy Oculus Rift when Facebook snatched it? Fuming that Google’s going to get Twitch before you do? Why not aim for some low-hanging fruit? This June, Bonhams will be auctioning off two of Apple’s old headquarters signs. The rainbow-striped signs were displayed outside Apple’s buildings, probably from around the late 70s – when Rob Janoff designed the logo – until 1997, when Apple began favoring the minimalist style that still pervades today.

The larger sign measures 46 x 49 x 1 inches and is made of stiff foam, while the smaller sign measures 33.5 x 36 x 6 inches and is made of fiberglass with metal backing. Both signs are a bit worn out, but will surely become more valuable with time. Unless Apple implodes and is promptly forgotten. Hmmm. Bonhams expects the pair will sell for $10,000 to $15,000 (USD), but maybe you should steal the Android sculptures on Google’s lawn instead. Just to stay ahead of the curve.
