Steve Jobs Memorial Pamphlet up for Auction on eBay
Apple held a special memorial for Steve Jobs on their Cupertino Campus yesterday with the likes of Randy Newman, Cold Play and Norah Jones performing at the event. While the event was extremely private—Apple Stores that closed down to watch the memorial via a live stream, put curtains up in the store windows—pamphlets from the event have started to surface on eBay.
The pamphlet is extremely simple containing only a transcription of the commencement speech Jobs gave at Stanford in 2005. While incredibly simple, the pamphlet is broken down into multiple pages, in minimalistic Apple fashion.
Each employee was given one copy of the pamphlet adding to the rarity of the keepsake. While many will undoubtedly keep their copy of the pamphlet a few are bound to find their way out of Cupertino. As of now this eBay auction is the only one up for sale. You can Buy It Now for $199.99.
Here is the items description:
You are bidding on a very rare Steve Jobs pamphlet given away at the employee only event on 10/19/2011. Each employee was ONLY given 1 of these special pamphlet that contains the transcript from his memorable speech at Stanford in 2005. The pamphlet is in mint condition, and the cover jacket is etched in silver "Remembering Steve". Shipping for this rare item is $3.00. International bidders, please message me for shipping cost. Thanks and happy bidding.

I agree with it being too soon to start the bidding for scraps of Steve Jobs life but unfortunately I think we all knew it would happen. It sold for $125. I was thinking ti would of went for more. Imagine the value of it in 10 or 20 years.

I don`t get it, what`s wrong with selling some memorabilia? Its pamphlet for Gods sake.Following your logic I should never sell any of Apple products, just keep every old Idevice on altar and worship it...

Like he didn't capitalize on some poor chinease mans death or hard work for crap wages?

Man this forum is getting flooded more and more with people who have no idea what modmyi is..
I don't think it's wrong to sell the pamphlet since it is theirs' but out of respect I wouldn't. It just would not be right trying to make money off of somebody's death who happens to be famous. So I guess that would be wrong... Hmmm

I once prayed to God for an iPhone, but quickly found out He didn't work that way...so I stole an iPhone and prayed for His forgiveness.

If I was famous and they gave pamphlets out for my funeral/ memorial, I'd high five someone for making a Benjamin or two off of the pamphlet.Steam ID: gentrytj

I don't see an issue with selling it. I mean it is sad that he passed on and so early...but seriously people die everyday. Some people need to get a grip.
