VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Aug. 6 (UPI) -- A former Apple employee has put his old business card up for auction on eBay and tech enthusiasts may want to get in on the bidding.

Although it might seem odd that the card of an ex-specialist who previously worked at an Apple store in Vancouver would be worth anything, the man's name makes all the difference.

Sam Sung.

Sung, whose name makes it sound as if he should have worked for one of Apple's major competitors, is donating the money to the Children's Wish Foundation, a nonprofit charity that grants wishes to sick children.

In addition to the card, Sung is including his old uniform and official Apple store lanyard. He's had the whole thing framed and has also autographed the glass.

Bidding started at just 99 cents, but it has already crept up to $1,000.


"I had a great time working for Apple and would recommend it to anyone," Sung wrote on eBay. "I hope my old business card will go to another fellow Apple enthusiast with a sense of humor and the desire to help raise some money for a good cause."

The auction closes on Aug. 15.
