Since his death in 2011, little by little various auctions and auctions have been held to sell the personal items of Apple founder Steve Jobs.
Now, a certificate of appreciation (originally listed as a plaque) signed by Jobs is being offered for sale at the Moments In Time auction house, for an unprecedented $95,000.
Throughout his life, Jobs was known to refuse autographs, so the few items that include his handwriting are worth quite a bit.
The plaque of recognition was awarded to Susan Lindberg, an employee of the company who indicated 10 years of work.
The item was signed by Jobs in 2000, shortly after he returned to Apple.
The plaque offered for sale reads: "This certificate recognizes those who have contributed a decade of achievement to Apple's phenomenal success. Apple honors you not only for your talent, enthusiasm and energy, but also for your ten years of creativity and commitment to your career. We hope you continue to believe, as we do, that the journey In itself it is the best reward."

In total, Lindbergh worked at Apple for 25 years, when she was later appointed to a senior position in the marketing and product naming department, before leaving in 2013. Estimates are that the item will eventually sell for an even higher price.
Last month, a model of the first iPhone, sealed in packaging, was sold at an auction in the US for $63,000. Karen Green, the owner of the device, told Insider in an interview that she received the iPhone as a gift from her friends in 2007. In October 2022, another big sale was announced - A first generation iPhone closed in packaging sold for almost 40 thousand dollars.
