according the auction lot description, the signs were removed from the company HQ in 1997 and presented to “a longtime Apple employee.” though it did not explains how it ended up on the block. the larger of the two is made of stiff foam with six vinyl applied colors, while the smaller sign is of fiberglass with metal backing, vinyl applied colors. both signs do suffers from the inevitable wear and tear earned through the years. auction house Bonhams expects these iconic logos to fetch between $10,000 and $15,000 (£5,900 and £8,900). so where do you intend to put them?
