I've got an original Ken Uston BJ Academy kit he used to send out in the late 70s.
Have lots of glass and plastic glass toppers from various machines. My favorite is a six foot header for a bank of Spider-Man slots. Disney owned slot characters are fairly rare.
Have a 1967 El Cortez giveaway jacket. Looks new, but it's a very small Large so I never wore it.

I never got into casino branded clothing it always went into the trash or I gave it away.

I have a cheque from the Monte Carlo in Monaco. It is a weird shape and I have no idea how their dealers properly handle them.

I have a $5 chip from the Dunes that is worth a couple hundred bucks last time I checked. Wish I would have grabbed more than one back then.

Is it a jeton? The only one of those in my collection is from the Casino da Madeira in Funchal. A picture of it is shown at the bottom of this post. I agree that dealing with stacks of those might be a nuisance.

My chip from Casino de Monte-Carlo is a rather conventional design, as shown in this post.

I got a $1 chip from (probably) every casino within a 12 mile radius of Circus Circus.

Sort of like that one. At the game nights I have to deal with those cheapo home poker chips. A gram or two less in weight but makes them way harder to handle. But at least they are flat sides. This one is as light and no grip on the side. Bleah.

Well, thanks to Hurricane Irma, I don't really have any memorabilia left. I also had lost some prior to the Hurricane.

I kept an issue of Grazia magazine featuring advertisements that appeal to the multimillionaires that frequented The Venetian.

I kept for quite awhile a simple two-page folded Gamblers Guide to the Venetian layout and thumb-nail description of the games.

I had a fake magazine reprint that featured my image on the cover (mercifully air brushed by the photobooth operator), one teenaged girl who stayed a week or so visiting my landlord discovered the magazine and did not realize the cigar, brandy and accompanying article were fake.

I had a cocktail set from the local Seminole place but I never used it.,

My favorite memorabilia is a magnetic giant clip from a Biloxi casino. At least I used it the most often of all my knick knacks.

Hurricane Irma can't erase my memories of Seminole Poker-like Carnival Games and the people I met there. Nor will I forget the dealer there who explained something to me about five aces and I thought he was making an apt comment about my character and honesty, instead of a situation that can actually take place in the game he was explaining.

I have a Las Vegas Club hat and jacket from going thru the place just after Derek Stevens bought the place and let us walk thru it. That and a Tinoco's Kitchen menu.

Does my old Barbary Coast players card count? :)

Mike, what do you want for the door handles? I will use it for my front door if the price is right.



I'm not eager to sell them but everything is ultimately for sale. I've seen them come up on Ebay once in a while. I'll alert you the next time I see a set.
It's not whether you win or lose; it's whether or not you had a good bet.

Sorry to hear that.
