I am huge fan of Apple, and I just bid on one a 1990-era Macintosh Classic. The bid is going higher, but I only want it if the computer has the signatures of the original Mac team.

It's before I was born, I wish I was born in that era. But please let me know if anyone knows whether this model has those signatures. I am 100% sure the original Macintosh (128k) had those signatures.

No. The signatures were in the 128k only. Although some 128Ks were upgraded (in the field) to 512Ks and kept parts of the signatures, the Classic was six years later, a different team and a completely different case design.

Also, not being fully satisfied, I found a picture:

You're welcome. I've added a link to a picture I found online which shows the inside of the case. It's plain. :) –  Steven Fisher Jun 16 '12 at 6:27
