Robert Wayne is trending as the man who, along with Steve Jobs and Steve Wozniak, established Apple Computer Co. and signed a document that is expected to make waves at Sotheby's.

The three men signed a document on April 1, 1976, that formally established Apple. That contract is hitting Sotheby's on Dec. 13 for its books and manuscripts sale and is estimated to bring in $100,000 to $150,000.

Wayne originally owned the contract, before it ended up in the hands of a manuscript dealer and eventually the consigner. The contract was amended on April 12 after he withdrew as partner, relinquishing his 10% ownership of the company and receiving $800 in return. He later received an additional $1,500.

Based on Apple's market capitalization today, Wayne's 10% stake would be valued at almost $35 billion, according to Bloomberg.


Don't give the Cretins a voice.
