Bidding starts on July 21st through auction organizer Olly Johshi’s website and on Rarible for the NFT. Read more for a picture of the full application and additional information.
This job application was filled out before he returned to his parents’ Los Altos home in February 1974. Fortunately, he was soon hired by Atari, Inc. in Los Gatos, California as a technician. However, the money earned at this job was primarily used for a trip to India in mid-1974 to visit Neem Karoli Baba, a spiritual master. More information here.
