LAS VEGAS, NEVADA, UNITED STATES, May 16, 2024 /EINPresswire.com/ — For anyone who is fascinated by gaming history, this expo is a must-see event. Hosted annually by the non-profit Casino Collectibles Association, the show features the greatest single-location collection of iconic artifacts and mementos that bring casino history, and memories, to life. Many are symbols of past gaming grandeur that are gone or becoming rare; souvenirs from when the casinos wanted customers to pocket their branded keepsakes as reminders of a memorable experience. Things like gaming chips of all denominations, gaming tokens, dice, slot cards, playing cards, matchbooks, ashtrays, menus, dinnerware, swizzle sticks, casino photos, post cards, signs, table felt – just about anything a casino could put its name on. Over 50 worldwide dealers will be on hand to offer attendees the unique opportunity to examine, buy, sell, or trade casino collectibles.

The exposition runs June 13 – 15 in Exhibit Hall C at the South Point Casino in Las Vegas. It is the annual educational effort of the Casino Collectibles Association, a 501 (c)(3) club with hundreds of members who passionately share the hobby of collecting and preserving gaming’s past. Show hours are June 13, 10 AM – 5 PM (admission $10), June 14, 9 AM – 4 PM (admission $5) and June 15, 9 AM – 4 PM (admission is free).
