PHP array within a class

I want to do the following VB code in PHP

Public Class DeckOfCards
    Dim cardNumber(51) As Integer

    Sub New()
        For cntr = 0 To 51
            cardNumber(cntr) = cntr
    End Sub

    Public Function GetCardNumber(ByVal crdNmbr As Integer) As Integer
        Return Me.cardNumber(crdNmbr)
    End Function

End Class

How would I go about it?

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Looks like homework
this should do it.

class DeckOfCards {
  public static $cardNumber = array();
  function __construct() {
      for ($cntr = 0; $cntr <= 51; $cntr++) {
           $cardNumber[] = $cntr;
  function GetCardNumber($crdNmbr) {
     return self::$my_static[$crdNmbr];
