'The anniversary issue covers 'incorporate features of the punched tabulator card in its design. Perhaps no symbol other than the ubiquitous 'IBM Card' could better represent the computer industry -- its hardware, software, and the efforts of its people -- during this notabe era of growth and achievement' (from the issue).
