Apple employee Sam Sung sells his business card for charity, and it’s already bid up to $80,000 and counting
For sale: One Sam Sung business card.
Condition: Used. No major folds, dents or scratches.
Price: USD $80,100 and counting.
When Vancouver resident Sam Sung discovered one of his old business cards tucked inside a book, he decided to auction it off to raise a bit of cash for the Children’s Wish Foundation’s B.C. and Yukon chapter.
It’s not the most obvious thing to post on eBay, even for someone who happens to share the name of a multinational electronics company.
But this Sam Sung used to work for Apple, and less than 24 hours after the former specialist at Pacific Centre posted his “Apple Sam Sung” business card on eBay Tuesday, more than 100 bids had come in and pushed the going price past $80,000.
“Wow. Just wow,” tweeted Sung Wednesday.
Neatly framed along with Sung’s business card are his old uniform and lanyard.
“I had a great time working for Apple and would recommend it to anyone,” he wrote in the eBay posting. “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.”
The auction ends Aug. 15.
