The questionnaire is believed to have been completed around the time he dropped out of Reed College in Portland, Oregon.

A year later, he joined Atari as a technician, where he worked with Steve Wozniak before they founded Apple in 1976.

The listing states: “The application is in very good condition with some overall creasing, light staining and old clear tape to the top edge. It is accompanied by letters and certificates of authenticity".

The same application was previously sold at an auction in 2018 for over $175,000 (about 1.2 crore).
