Apple’s founding contract – signed in 1976 by Steve Jobs, Steve Wozniak and and Ron Wayne – was sold today at a New York auction for US$1.6 million.

The contract was bought by an unamed phone bidder at the Sotheby’s auction, reports 9to5Mac. Earlier reports estimated that the document would likely sell for US$150,000.

The three-page document, dated April 1, 1976, was signed by co-founders Steve Jobs, Steve Wozniak and the lesser-known Ron Wayne, who later withdrew his 10 percent share of Apple Computers. Wayne’s share would be worth an estimated US$3.9 billion today.
