A handwritten note by late Apple co-founder Steve Jobs that described changes Atari could make to an arcade game, is up for auction, according to a report.
US-based Sotheby''s is auctioning the memo penned in 1974 by then-19-year-old Jobs that describes changes Atari could make to its World Cup Soccer arcade game to add fun and functionality.
According to CNET, the memo is expected to fetch 10,000 to 15,000 dollars.
Jobs worked briefly at Atari, helping the game maker improve design, before he co-founded Apple.
According to the report, Sotheby''s is also auctioning a working Apple I motherboard, complete with cassette interface, operating manuals, and a BASIC Users Manual.
Fewer than 50 Apple I computers are thought to have survived, with only six known to be in working condition, Sotheby''s said.
The lot is expected to fetch 120,000 to 150,000 dollars.
The auction is scheduled for June 15.
