The prototype was used by Apple co-founder Steve Jobs in 1976 to demonstrate the Apple-1 to Paul Terrell, owner of The Byte Shop in Mountain View, California, one of the world’s first personal computer stores, RR Auction with Boston-based said in a statement.

A Bay Area collector wishing to remain anonymous made a winning bid of $ 677,196 on Thursday, the auctioneer said.

“There is no Apple-1 without this card – it’s the holy grail of Steve Jobs and Apple memorabilia,” said Bobby Livingston, executive vice president of RR.
