Why is the Ace of Spades the most popular card in a deck of playing cards?

Most games have the ace as the highest-value card, and games that rank the suits (such as Bridge) tend to do so in alphabetical order in English (Clubs, Diamonds, Hearts, Spades), making the ace of spades the highest value.

The ace of spades usually has the manufacturer's logo on its face as well.
