    Hello all,
    I'm wondering if anyone else has something in their collection of casino memorabilia similar to these and can estimate a value. On the "coolness chart" to me they are priceless, since I would think very few exist, and the fact that I have one from my favorite casino makes these all that more sweet. I also have one from the Mapes Casino, and New China Club.
    I bought these off ebay at what I think were great prices... roughly $52 a piece and considering, i was going to go balls to the wall to get the Riviera one, I was more than pleased.
    They were shipped in a box with each in its own mailing tube inside and one of the tubes was still post marked to T.R King from M. K. Sproull & Company (in San Diego) January 16th 1964.
    There is some water damage along the edge on all but the Riviera which seems to be in great condition. It's fascinating to see the hand written scribbles indicating which color goes where and the hand drawn dice (on some) and numbering, etc.
    I would love to see others you may have and other layouts such as black jack, roulette, and the like.
    And the big question, if anybody knows... how difficult and expensive would it be to use one of these layout designs to have a felt made for my own table if I ever get the notion? Is it even possible?
    If anyone has pics of these layouts being used at the Riv or Showboat, I love to have them.
    Hope you dig the pics.
    Thanks, Jim

    That is awesome.
    Never thought to get one and wonder if they are available from any of the current places on the strip.

    With regards to cost, check this guys thread.
