There are people who collect those club cards. That's all I think it might be. Kinda funky way to collect them, though.
If the House lost every hand, they wouldn't deal the game.

Yeah, people collect anything nowadays.

Honestly, player's cards are not such a dumb thing to collect... lots of interesting variety, really cheap if not free, hardly takes up any space.... Seems like a pretty inexpensive and non-intrusive hobby if you ask me.

I recently bought a batch of almost 1,000 of these. Even though player cards are fairly recent developments, it's amazing how many obsolete casinos there are.

I kept and still have my Stardust player card after walking out with it on their last night as they locked the door for all-time before stripping & imploding it, most notably at least to me, along with some others I feel less reverent about. And I can certainly see some people having an interest in something from the Desert Inn or the old Las Vegas Sands, both of which I see available there. Even if I really can't easily imagine who would possibly ever make the market for some others I see offered via that E-Bay link, such as Circus-Circus and Four Queens. Maybe a retired drunk Circus clown out there somewhere?

At one time "rare" casino cards were going for a significant amount. I think it became a thing once rare casino chip prices skyrocketed. I remember the old Dessert Inn cards going for at least $100. You can probably get them for less than $10 now.

What they refer to as vintage punch hole slot cards go for about $20. I have some very rare slot cards somewhere.

I personally think Vegas memorabilia is very undervalued. People around the world collect it. One persons garbage is another persons treasure.

Me too and also the boardwalk card. I think it has holes in it like a punch card, cant remember though if they were used.

Its not an either or situation. My casino card collection fits into one of my shoeboxes. Nice thing about having size 14 shoes is the boxes are huge.
