Chinese online playing card retail hcgpk.com has a wide selection of playing card sets featuring famous historical figures, celebrities, sports players, etc. Sure most of the sets are likely no more than packs of copyrighted images printed on cheap cardboard paper without authorization, but someone’s gotta make Plants Vs. Zombies playing cards, right?
At least hcgpk.com is showing a little more ingenuity with their latest design, a pack of playing cards chronicling the life and achievements of Steve Jobs.
We’d like to point out the iPad-style border design that, while a clever idea, looks unimpressive in execution and even makes it difficult to read the numbers on the clubs and spades cards.
Better yet is the Engrish product description on the site. A moving eulogy to one of the greatest figures of our time, it reads, unabridged, as follows:
Create trillion value, 270000000 iPod, 100000000 iPhone, 10000000 iPad, 100 times the price increase, the 11 classic products, 8 years of resistance, the 2 operation, 1 legends! Not everyone can like him to create a miracle in the world, the death of Jobs, the God is jealous of his talent，just as he had the same clothes, his personal independence of conduct discard the classics and rebel against orthodoxy follow intuition of innovation management of subversion that changed the world. Instead of saying that he is an entrepreneur, be inferior to saying is philosopher, artist, his life all, Zen very transparent, unique, he found the dialogue with the world the secret passage, this poker collection precious pictures 54 of Jobs, tells the story of the master of the legend in his lifetime,to miss him forever.
“the God is jealous of his talent，just as he had the same clothes,”…
We couldn’t have said it better ourselves.
