I have found a few and others have posted some.

But many look kinda shady. not sure if you want to gamble with 100 or 1000 bucks if you havent even seen what your getting.
you can fool all of the people some of the time and some of the people all the time but never all of the people all the time.

The point is you have no choice. U.S. Gambling commision just won't allow any big company do thoes gaffs and you never 100% sure you'll get what you ordered or at least recieve anything. Back in the 70's you could get anything, not like I was born back then, but I have Evans and K.C. catalogs and "Ohh dear" you could get pretty much anything just pay, plus prices were beautiful.

Those are what they are, collectibles. The Gentleman, like myself is a trader of pre 64 collectibles. He is as honest as they come, so don't think twice about the items quality. Finding groups and lots of these items is harder and harder to do and his prices are very fair considering.


Keep in mind they are fairly useless in the realworld and merely a link to the past.

His card products are OK....not great...I think he resells some common card products. I have not seen his shoe or card table....so, I cannot comment.

But, I have seen his dice and they are excellent quality...and I have heard good things about his tops (put/take), etc.

Bottom line: use him for Dice equipment and tops/put/take.

Yes you have to keep in mind that the quality of any of the pocket items was always fairly average, with the exception of the horse race tops and things that were machined from metal. The white/black/colored/swirled color items I have were picked up in power buys with tons of other dice and even dominoes and boxes full of games and things. I can't change what they are, and in most cases, getting the dust and grime off them is the best that is going to happen. I have boxes full that got damp years ago and newspaper stuck to everything, staining them. Possibly I will be able to save some and get them available, maybe not. Because this stuff is so scarce I have had to shift to rare mob casino dice for most of my own sales. Just too hard to get gaffed groups anymore. I think that collectors that focus on dice and pocket items are going to wake up one day when the punchboards and paper items start saying 'one only' or disapear from the market and end up very sorry for not preserving them in their collections. Try to buy an Evans red and black pencil, or a gaffed Ivory dice top. Either they no longer exist or you have to start at two notes and go up from there. One more thing that is making things tough, is the poliferation of collectors books like "Gambling collectibles a Sure Thing" and my own book "The Collectors Guide to Jackpot and Slot Machine Dice" Just try to get your hands on some cardboard Odds cards or boxed Jackpot dice now. I killed my own hobby with that one.
