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

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.
