    I decided it was time to do some "spring cleaning" of a Junk Drawer filled with trinkets from over the years.
    Lots of different Bus Transfers & Subway Tickets from World Travels and Cruises but mostly Lanyards and Players Cards from Las Vegas.

    I had several dozen Wynn and MGM cards each. Especially Wynn Room Keys. A few brought back memories like the old One Card from Excalibur etc…
    I probably got rid of about 50 or more Cards.

    I had a Zip Lock Bag filled with different color - Red, Blue, Green, Black, White, Yellow of those Springy Plastic and Rope type Lanyards.
    I decided to toss them all out except for the Black Ones.

    Also had several TITO for a few Cents here and there and a bunch of Show Ticket Stubs. No need keeping it if its just going to be hidden away in a drawer.

    Some of those could be worth actual cash. People actively collect stuff like this

    Did you have players cards from the days before the huge Las Vegas casino mergers? From NYNY or Flamingo for example? How about room keys / keycards from places like Desert Inn or Sands? Same goes for chips.

    I have an actual Bellagio room key from a time when most places had already switched over to keycards

    Everything collected that is Vegas related is from a 10 year span between 2006 - 2016

    I have a piece of the wall from Bill's Gamblin' Hall in my Vegas junk drawer.

    I have a couple shoe box size storage containers for that. Mostly old players cards and hotel keys and tchotchkes I haven't given away.

    I have a few dollar chips from Boardwalk and New Frontier. they were lost when we moved about 8 years ago.. probably in a box in the attic. Also a Slot Of Fun t shirt around somewhere courtesy of the ACG and a ton of players card still making my wallet bulge.
