This Sunday at McManus Actuions. Should sell around 1230PM, suspect it will go cheap. From an NCL cruise boat.

Does not seem to be a craps table at all.

Seems only to be a thin cardboard generic layout for a craps table that was used by a Vegas charity.

Might still be of interest to some but it surely should not be mistaken for a 'craps table' if it is only a thin cardboard insert that has been removed from a craps table.

Current bid is five dollars so it seems no one is getting fooled by the misdescription.

NOTE: IF it is true that this is merely a painted cardboard (not felt) layout being sold as a 'craps table' then I fear the auctioneer's sense of disclosure is about equal to a casino's sense of disclosure. Perhaps the whole town is affected by deception.
Or perhaps I am naive.

I don't think it is cardboard on the back. It appears to be plywood. There is a brass drop slot.

But what about the tub, rail and legs? Aren't these required parts of a "Craps Table"?

It's felt, and came off a ship.
Naive wouldn't be my first choice of words.

Yeah, I was not happy saying cardboard but I simply was not awake enough to think of an alternative word.

That is the main thing. Anyone bidding on a 'craps table' probably does not want just a craps layout.
Still, if you are bidding on other items that you have to pick up you might as well bid on this one.

I'd pay a nickle to hear the story of how the felt from a craps table on a cruise ship ended up in an auction in the middle of desert. Area 51? Hangover 4?

The auction does estates. I'm amazed the stuff that get. This week they have movie props from Lucas films.
A couple of weeks ago they had two BJ tables from a casino in Reno, with matching chairs.
If I were to guess, I'd think an attempt at learning dice control is somehow involved.
I average about $1,000 a week in purchases and resell the stuff. Mostly on eBay.

Is it a coincidence that the Wizard recently let someone "borrow' both of his BlackJack tables? Maybe they're gone for good.
