An item from The Atlantic pictures the "business card" of Will Wright, creator of The Sims video game. It's actually an old banknote stamped with his contact information. Pretty cool.
Of all Will Wright's charmingly nerdy habits, I think his hilarious business cards might top the list. He simply stamps his contact information on essentially worthless currency from other countries. It's genius. His contact information is in the fuzzed out box up there; the money is from Yugoslavia (a country that no longer exists, obviously) and features Nikola Tesla, perhaps the great electrical inventor of all time.
Didn't Grover Criswell stamp obsolete banknotes and common Confederate notes with an advertisement? How many other numismatists and dealers have done this over the years? Who's doing it today?
It's nice to see a non-numismatist using banknotes, but who knows? Maybe Wright is a collector.
