Gambling Memorabilia Auction

From Potter & Potter:

Our May auction features gambling memorabilia in a wide range of categories, from a first edition of Erdnase's famous book on cheating at cards, to slot machines and trade stimulators, to the world-class playing card collection of Rhonda and Bob Hawes. Also going on the block are unusual cheating devices (marked cards, gaffed roulette wheels, and fair ground games); books on cons, horseracing, and poker (including the first work in English to mention the game); posters, prints, and decorative objects with a playing card and gambling theme; and coin-operated machines from uprights to slots and beyond. Nearly 1100 lots in all will be offered over the course of the two-day sale.

The two-day sale begins on May 6th, 2017 at 10:00 am CST, with a second session on Sunday, May 7th. Lots will be available for preview in our gallery May 3-5, from 10am - 5pm. Full color catalogs ship approximately three weeks prior to the auction.

Good luck to all those bidding.
