A slice of Apple history is about to hit the auction block.

A massive collection of Apple gadgets and memorabilia will be up for sale in March at auction house RR Auction. The collection, which belonged to former Apple product design engineer Jerry Manock, includes everything from a fully functional Apple-1 computer to Apple beach towels.

Titled "The Steve Jobs Auction," the lot mostly includes items from the 1970s and 1980s. Several of the items up for grabs have rare Steve Jobs signatures.

"Steve Jobs was a reluctant signer," Bobby Livingston, executive vice president at RR Auction, said in a statement. "He always asserted that his success was a result of team effort, and therefore often refused to give an autograph if the rest of his employees were not included."

Online bidding will begin on March 5 and wrap up March 12.

You can head over to RR Auction to view the full collection (or to place a bid yourself), but here's a closer look at some of the coolest and most expensive items up for grabs.
