I would imagine the final end-user (collector) would likely value them most when they are unassigned blanks which did not get issued for use and are therefore not imprinted with some grubby schmuck's name. Unless that grubby someone happens to be named, say, "Francis Albert Sinatra" or "Elvis Aaron Presley." Or "Me" in the case of a person who is me. Looks like most of those shown in the E-Bay pics appear to be 'clean' that way. But not the schmucked-up ones displayed from the most current and/or trashy and least nostalgic joints at the likes of Circus-Circus & Four Queens. Unless "Kyle..." at Clowns*2 and "Gloria..." at the 4Qs are someone really special I'm supposed to know about.

Long gone. The idea is to sell merchandise. Not sit on it. This week I'm hawking swords. Mostly pirate, but a few others. Couple of razor sharp Samurai swords I suspect might be worth a heck of a lot more than I did when I bid on them.

Are they Hattori Hanzo swords??

One is. I got them from a costume store that went belly up. Most were cheap crap or toys even, but four were Musashi and one was a Wakizashi Kobuse. One of the Musashi is actually a Hattori. I assume it has a Kill Bill connection as I doubt there was a real person.
Completed sales on ebay look pretty good seeing as I paid $45 for the lot. I figure cheap pirate sabers will rock as pirate is a top five Halloween costume.

Casino players cards for sale on Ebay?

This isnt me btw

I was just curious who would do this lol

Again I am not endorsing this. Just shocked someone ebays players cards



I once considered selling my players card because I got an offer
I was at the Plaza several years ago
I had gotten a players card many many years ago
I went to play and the machine did not accept my card
I go to the card counter and they said my card was real old and I was not in their system
Yippee, I signed up and got the new players bonus deal and a new card.
Somebody offered me some money for my old players card
I thought it was a bit fishy so I refused besides, he only offered my like 5 or 10 dollars.

You don't need a sword. You need a trench knife. 12 inches of hardened steel combined with brass knuckle guard handle with a stainless steel skull crushing pommel on the tip.

$15 for you.
