It didn’t take very long — less than a day —  for people to start profiting from the death of Apple co-founder Steve Jobs

There’s always a dollar or two to be made and profiteering from the death of Apple co-founder Steve jobs is no exception. Less than 24 hours after the news of his death emerged, there’s already an  influx of Steve Jobs items on sale following his death on Wednesday.

Items like t-shirts, old magazine covers and even bobble heads are filling the virtual shelves of eBay, CafePress and as previously noted, Etsy.

Market demand for Jobs-related items forced magazines to halt the presses and create special covers marking his death and even a biography, which features interviews with the iconic CEO, was bumped to an earlier release.

We collected some of the most popular items below commemorating Jobs’ death.
