Description Extended Information
This rare Pixar Specimen Stock Certificate was printed in 2005 and features the printed signature of Steve Jobs as Chairman of the Board. Pixar got its start as part of George Lucas's LucasFilm company. It was spun out from LucasFilm in 1986 with the financial backing of Steve Jobs who became the majority shareholder after being force out of Apple just a year earlier. His stake eventually grew to $50 million with total control of the company. They went public in 1995 with the biggest IPO of the year. In 2006 Disney agreed to buy Pixar for $7.4 billion netting Jobs almost $4 billion in Disney Stock. Jobs would become the single largest individual shareholder of Disney. He also received a board seat.

The deal would be one of Bob Iger's biggest and most successful acquisitions after the departure of Michael Eisner. Iger realized that virtually every successful Disney Animation during the previous decade came from Pixar rather than within Disney. Steve Jobs would go on to regain control of Apple in 1997 and become the richest man in the world before his passing in 2011.

Pixar has produced some of the largest grossing animated films of all time including Toy Story, Finding Dory and they Incredibles.

About Specimens:
Specimen stock certificates are certificates that were archived by printers and the company as perfect examples of the company’s stock issue. Specimen’s can be identified by their “specimen” stamp, stamped holes spelling “specimen”, or they are often issued with a serial number of a series of zeros. Often, they are also issued with no serial number at all. Specimens can also represent a design that was never issued. All of these attributes make the specimen stock certificate rarer than the issued version of the share. Many enthusiasts collect specimens as a whole new category of Scripophily.
