Everything Must Go As Plaza Sells Off Las Vegas Club Sports Memorabilia
The recently-sold Las Vegas Club was once a treasure trove of sports memorabilia, now the stash is being sold in a “pop-up gallery” at Plaza Las Vegas.
We didn’t know what to expect from this sale, but there’s a surprisingly large amount (numbering in the hundreds) and variety of memorabilia, and most at very reasonable prices.
If you’re not in the buying mood, simply strolling the gallery is a walk through sports history (and it’s free to see).
The hot item is a signed Michael Jordan North Carolina Tar Heels basketball jersey. This item is one that doesn’t have a set price, but rather bids are being taken for it. The current bid is $10,000.
Another item we remember seeing in the Las Vegas Club is an autographed bat collection from the 1946-1958 World Series.
The pop-up gallery will be open from 3:00 p.m. to 11:00 p.m., seven days a week.
In a nice gesture, the Plaza is donating 10% of each sale to the UNLV Libraries Special Collections.
Sports fans may find this everything-must-go sale worth a stop. You’ll not only get a piece of sports history, but also Las Vegas history. The Las Vegas Club opened in 1930 and was purchased by Derek and Greg Stevens, the owners of Golden Gate and The D Las Vegas. After a metric ass-ton of renovations, the former Las Vegas Club is expected to open with a new name and theme.
