Apple’s third and largely unknown co-founder, Ronald Wayne, is planning to sell his personal archive of Apple memorabilia.

Wayne’s archive most notably features an untouched pre-order form for the Apple II and perhaps more importantly, blueprints for the same machine and proof sheets for the hallowed Apple I.

Even though no hardware will be included in the auction, the guide price for the documents is $30,000 – $50,000. The auction will be held by Christie’s on December 11th.

Ronald Wayne is Apple’s little known co-founder alongside Jobs and Wozniak. He was essentially brought into the company by Jobs to bring some business expertise to their rapidly developing company. Initially he was given 10% of the company, but later gave it up, declaring that he couldn’t deal with the two Steve’s endless bickering.

There’s no doubt Ron regrets that decision now though – 10% of Apple today would be worth $70 billion.
