Former Apple employee Sam Sung auctions his business card!

I can’t imagine being an Apple employer and keeping a straight face while hiring a man named Sam Sung. As it turns out, the Cupertino-based company did have a Sam Sung on payroll, a man who ironically shares his name with Apple’s main competitor. He worked as a specialist in a Vancouver store, which earned him the right for his very own business cards.

An image of his business card was found to be quite comic by the tech community. It went viral, but he had very little to say about the matter, as Apple’s policies wouldn’t allow him to comment much on the case. He is no longer working for Apple and has a single business card left. What to do with this one-of-a-kind piece of paper?

Would you be willing to pay a significant amount of cash for Sam Sung’s business card? You can go place your bids on his auction! Sung has framed his business card, along with his company t-shirt and the official Apple Store lanyard. He then autographed the shirt and started the bids at just $0.99, a steal for any technology enthusiast.

That is a very high price for merchandise that probably costed apple a few dollars, but Sam Sung is hoping a tech collector “with a good sense of humor” may appreciate it.

The framed contents do come with a very rewarding sentiment, after all. Sam has honorably decided donate all proceeds to the Children’s Wish foundation, an organization that grants wishes to sick children. Sung has pledged to post a picture of Jennifer Peterson (the foundation’s director) as soon as the auction concludes.

Unlike most of us here, Sam does state he has no hard feelings for Apple, something Samsung also wouldn’t agree with. He just found this to be a great opportunity to help a good cause.
