Business card trading games

^See the original here

Finally, people have started making business card-trading games. Life resembles Pokemon - folks at conferences trading cards... These particular OK/Cancel cards celebrate contemporary usability wonks - interaction design experts.

So people can make up their own game to go along with the scenario.

I am trying to find a framed display of old business cards of famous people such as George Washington, Ben Franklin etc. There were 5 or 6 of these then a space for your own card. Can you help?
