    Las Vegas
  • Goldfield

    Jumbo (6″ x 9″) card mailed in 1991 and pretty heavily battered. Small tear in upper edge, also corner abrasions. It’s a wonder how any card like this could survive international mailing, but here it is. Grade: 4

    Price: $6.00

  • Las Vegas Sahara, Eve Arden

    This unused 5″ x 8″ card, in virtually as-new condition, should appeal to anyone wanting to re-create the “old” Las Vegas feel. And with Our Miss Brooks gazing right out at you…maybe you just have to be of a certain age. Grade: 1

    This 5-1/2″ x 7″ unused card, in as-new condition, from a hotel that’s long gone, and advertising a meal at a price equally long gone, will be a gem for anyone who just wants to remember Las Vegas as it used to be in the 1960s. Grade: 1

  • Reno, Mustang Ranch

    Two unused cards are available, from Nevada’s original legal brothel, apparently a place with more stories than customers. These cards are aging on both sides, but are otherwise undamaged. Grades: 2

    Price: $6.50

    Reno, Mustang Ranch

  • Las Vegas, Lionel Hampton, Riviera Hotel

    This somewhat oversized (4″ x 7″) unused card from the 1960s is a little smudged on both sides but definitely a prize catch for Hampton collectors. Grade: 2

    Code: 10129011

    Price: $6.00

    Las Vegas, Lionel Hampton, Riviera Hotel
  • Las Vegas, Riviera Hotel, Ginger Rogers

    Slightly oversized (4″ x 7″) card from the early 1960s, showing Miss Rogers in her “premiere Las Vegas cafe appearance.” The card is aging and has a travel agent’s rubber stamp on the reverse but if you’re a collector of Las Vegas, or any of the glitz associated with Vegas, this one’s for you. Grade: 4

  • Las Vegas, Golden Nugget

    With its breathless caption on the reverse, you could almost expect to leave there a winner! Get this unused card P43886 for a lot cheaper! Grade: 1

    Price: $3.00

    Las Vegas, Golden Nugget
  • Death in the Desert

    You wouldn’t call this card “comic” and we’re not ready to open a new theme for “tragic.” Three of these unused cards from 1992 are available. Aging noticeably on the reverses.  Grades: 2

    Reno, downtown arch
  • Las Vegas, Boulder Club

    Las Vegas has more lives than a cat. But not the Boulder Club, which one Google citation tells us operated from 1931 to 1960 despite a large fire in 1956. The caption on the back says “We never close.” Not so. Grade: 2

    Code: 10129018

    Price: $4.00

    Las Vegas, Boulder Club
  • Lake Tahoe, Barney’s Casino

    Barney’s may have been absorbed into something else by now, but his cards live on. We have five of these, unused, as-new. By the way, Barney’s was on the south shore of Lake Tahoe. We’re not certain where “Northern Nevada’s largest slot machine” may be now, however. Grades: 1

    Code: 10129019

    Price: $7.00

    Lake Tahoe, Barney’s Casino
  • Las Vegas, multiple views

    One by one these casinos get demolished, or burn, or just disappear. But they live forever on postcards. This nice one was mailed in 1984 with full Las Vegas postmark and some 10-cent People’s Right to Petition stamps. Minor USPS imprint on front. Grade: 2

    Code: 10129020

    Price: $6.00

    Las Vegas, multiple views
  • Virginia City

    With not too much effort, we can imagine Virginia City the way it used to be. This card was mailed in 1990 from Reno with full postmark and two 25-cent Hemingway stamps. According to the card, today’s Virginia City “is termed ‘The Livelist Ghost Town in the West,'” but maybe it would not have turned out that way if they had learned how to spell. Grade: 1

    Code: 10129021

  • Las Vegas, Golden Nugget

    Many Golden Nugget cards look the same, but this one is this one. Unused and atypically unnumbered H.S. Crocker card from the 1950s, probably. Grade: 2

    Price: $4.00

  • Las Vegas, Flamingo Hilton

    Still the Flamingo, just no longer a Hilton.  Card was mailed in 1984 (“It’s a brand new hotel!”) with two stamps and fully legible Las Vegas postmark.  Grade: 3

    Price: $4.50

    Las Vegas, Old West Motel
  • Las Vegas, Stardust Hotel

    Price: $4.50

    Las Vegas, Stardust Hotel
  • Las Vegas, The Sands

    Opened in 1958, The Sands was once owned by the legendary Howard Hughes.  And it didn’t look like this card for long.  This building, and the hotel, are long gone (replaced by the Venetian?) but the company is still very much there.  Two unused cards are available, from the early 1960s.  Grades: 1

    Code: 10129026

    Price: $6.50

    Las Vegas, The Sands
  • Las Vegas, Frontier Hotel

    Another of the iconic Las Vegas hotel properties with a long and rich history, and also gone as of 2007.  This exceptionally clear card is unused and as-new, except of course that the hotel isn’t there any more.  Grade: 1

    Code: 10129027

    Price: $6.50

    Las Vegas, Frontier Hotel
  • Las Vegas, Nevada Club (not a postcard)

    This is not a postcard.  It measures 2.25″ x 3.5″ (like a business card), has rounded edges, and on the back contains a map to find the casino, a rubber stamp from the motel that passed the card out, and another rubber stamp saying “three free souvenirs.”  Not sure if that offer is still valid now, but the little item is very nice.  Grade: 1

    Code: 10129028

  • Las Vegas, The Mint

    “Spectacular new Club on Fremont Street” should suggest how old this unused card is.  Great condition.  Grade: 1

  • Las Vegas, Rinns Royal Las Vegas Motor Hotel

  • Las Vegas, Greetings

    Mailed in the 1970s with a 10-cent stamp and partial postmark, this card has serratedc edges and assorted creases.  Technically it’s not in very good shape but if you are collecting marquee signs, this is a good one.  Grade: 4

    Code: 10129034

    Price: $3.50

    Las Vegas, Greetings
  • Reno, Washoe County Courthouse

    Divorce was not always as easy as it is now, and Reno was the place to go, and this courthouse was Ground Zero.  The caption on reverse elaborates just a little bit.  Card was mailed with a 2-cent stamp, probably in 1957 but the postmark is not distinct.  Grade: 2

    Code: 10129035

    Price: $2.50

    Reno, Washoe County Courthouse
  • Las Vegas, Old West Motel

    Should be a companion card to the other one we have of the same motel many years later.  This unused linen card has aged significantly and has a fading stain in the address area, but if you are into before-and-after views, this is perfect for you.  Grade: 4

    Code: 10129036

    Price: $5.00

    Las Vegas, Old West Motel
  • Virginia City

    The card’s writer was prophetic when he asked “What can happen to this card?  It only has to go ten miles.”  The answer is:  multiple abrasions, postal battering, water stains, barcoding sticker, … you get the idea.  Mailed in 1994, the stamp and postmark are there.  Grade: 4

    Code: 10129037

    Price: $1.00

    Virginia City
  • Greetings from Las Vegas, Flamingo

    A card for many categories, mailed in 1974 with stamp and postmark.  The writer was having a great time, clearly.  The irony is that the card’s recipient could have been right there with them.  A bit of postal battering, nothing major.  Grade: 3

    Code: 10129038
