The $3,430 check was used to buy parts for the Apple 1 computer, Reuters reported. It was expected to bring in more than $25,000, according to the RR Auction website. As of Friday, the bidding had reached more than $67,000. 

"This is before they had any investors," Bobby Livingston, RR Auction’s executive vice president told Reuters. "The reason it's signed by both of them is in their charter. Any expenses over $1,000, they both had to agree and here's the evidence."
