The Marin School in San Rafael, California is having an auction to raise funds and there’s one lot that will appeal to tech historians and Apple fans alike – three of Steve Jobs’ business cards.

The artefacts date from 1984 to 1990 – the period when Jobs went from Chairman of Apple to CEO of NEXT and Chairman of Pixar.

According to Business Insider, the cards found their way into the school’s possession via a family who did catering for Jobs and kept hold of his contact info for safe keeping.

The auction runs until May 7 and, at the time of writing, the bidding stands at $2,405. It’s for a good cause, but those are some pretty damn pricey bits of card.
