Update: With four days to go, Sam's little charity auction is doing pretty well... the top bid is currently a hair above US$80,000. High-end luxury automobile vs. framed t-shirt and business card, you choose!
If you've ever happened upon a list of the most interesting business cards, you've undoubtedly stumbled across the business card of an Apple employee named, of all things, Sam Sung.
For a little while, Sung worked as an Apple retail store specialist in Vancouver before leaving for a recruiting agency last year.
Now comes word via Pocket-Lint that Sung found one of his last remaining "Sam Sung" business cards and is auctioning it off on eBay in an effort to raise money for charity.
I came across one of my old business cards the other day when it fell out of a book.
So, with a view to raising money for a very deserving charity, I'm auctioning the only "Apple Sam Sung" business card I have left and I'm going to donate ALL of the proceeds [minus eBay fees] to Children's Wish, BC & Yukon - a not-for-profit that grants wishes to sick children.
I had a great time working for Apple and would recommend it to anyone. I hope my old business card will go to another fellow Apple enthusiast with a sense of humour and the desire to help raise some money for a good cause. Although the auction is for my business card alone, I have framed it alongside my old uniform [as seen in the picture] and I will arrange to courier it [frame, t-shirt and lanyard INCLUDED] to you. Good luck.
The auction ends in 9 days and the winning bid at the moment stands at $1,000, a marked increase from an initial bid of just $0.99.
Here's what the card looks like up close.
And lastly, you might recall that Sung even received a subtle shoutout in Samsung's well-done Super Bowl commercial starring Paul Rudd and Seth Rogan a few years back.
