    Been going to Vegas for 40+ years but about the only thing I collected early on was ashtrays and matches. I still have all the match books, but with all the home moves, the only ashtray left is from the Sands. I kick myself on all the things I had, not just from Vegas, but also kid stuff that I just got rid off. Who knew 50 years later it would not be junk, but valuable.

    I still have a coffee can of all the matchbooks we collected on our first trip in 1999. I also have a stack of all the different player cards that we got on that trip.

    They are members of the CCA http://www.ccgtcc.com/ and I am also.They have a yearly convention in LV every June if interested.
    And they also host/run a Southern Nevada club that meets the 2nd Tuesday of the month at the Gold Coast and the public is welcome.
    I know there are quite a few VMB'ers who collect chips,etc. and if interested in buying,selling or trading or asking questions, this is the place to go.
    http://www.thechipboard.com/.Friendly people who like to help others in the hobby.
    Take a look at any older casino stuff you have from anywhere even cruise ships you may have kept as a souvenier.Could be valuable to someone!

    I just sent this out to a fellow member as a gift,and warmly welcomed as he collects everything older Ceasars Palace.I picked it up in 1986.GL everyone!
