Even Gordon Gekko Has A Card

One of the coolest characters to be played on film has to be Michael Douglas’s character Gordon Gekko, at least from a business standpoint.  I saw the first Wall Street back in 2004 when I was a senior in high school.  At the time I didn’t really get it, but after seeing it more and more I understood what it was about.

Yesterday I went to see the sequel, Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps, and I really enjoyed it.  I thought it was a great addition to the first.  After Gordon Gekko is released from prison for insider trading, he looks as if all he is doing is promoting his new book.  He tries to make you believe that he’s out of the game for good, but in reality he’s in control of it all and is just sitting in the shadows watching for the perfect time to strike.  I also thought it was cool to see Charlie Sheen’s character Bud Fox make a return from the original film.

As for cards, you can find a Gordon Gekko playing card in one of the Oddball sets.  I’m surprised that Upper Deck never did anything with him for Prominent Cuts.
