Sotheby's selling original Steve Jobs note to Atari


Sotheby's is selling another a piece of Apple history that'll appeal to collectors. The auction house is offering a memo Steve Jobs sent to Atari in 1974. The memo contains changes Atari could make to its World Cup Soccer arcade game that'll add variety to the game.

The memo has pencil-drawn circuit diagrams and paddle information for the engineers. It's written on Atari letterhead and signed by Jobs under All-One Farm Design, a company name inspired by an Oregon apple orchard/hippy commune frequented by Jobs. The auction begins at US$15,000, but it could fetch a lot more than that. Last year, Sotheby's sold the original Apple contract signed by Steve Jobs for $1.6 million.
