    Yesterday, while walking a few blocks from me house, I noticed a matchbook near the sidewalk. Upon closer inspection, it was a vintage Sands matchbook with nearly all the matches intact.
    How it ended up in our small town (pop. 4,000) all these years later is a mystery. Someone had to be a collector and perhaps lost it, but who..?
    I did notice it had a value of around $10 on Ebay.
    Had I not been a Vegas regular, I would not have given it a second thought and kept on walking.

    It's a message from the other side. Frank Sinatra wants you to get the old crew back together and do one last job together; hit all the Las Vegas strip casinos at exactly midnight on New Year's Eve. :Þ

    That's an awesome find. I'm super jealous.

    Not being an Ebay regular, I might have looked at the wrong price on my matchbook and perhaps it isn't worth $10.
    thanks for the input Joe.
