Pop Up Gallery Coming To Feature Items From Famed Las Vegas Club & Casino
The Plaza Hotel & Casino will celebrate the grand opening of a special pop-up gallery on Tuesday, Nov. 3 at 7 p.m. featuring the numerous sports themed items that once decorated the iconic Las Vegas Club Hotel & Casino.
The memorabilia pop-up gallery and store officially opens to the public at 7 p.m. on Tuesday, Nov. 3, with a special grand opening event for the general public that includes a drawing to win one of the historic pieces.
Hundreds of sports related items will be available to the public to view and purchase. The diverse collection includes items ranging in price, starting at $25, and vary by sport. Items include a signed Michael Jordan North Carolina Tar Heels basketball jersey; a framed Pete Rose #14 Montreal Expos jersey, flanked by a photo of the baseball great as a Philadelphia Phillie and his official Cincinnati Reds baseball card; two official seats from Comiskey Stadium in Chicago; and an autographed bat collection from the 1946-1958 World Series games.
“For many years, the Las Vegas Club was a sports fan favorite in downtown Las Vegas,” said Jonathan Jossel, CEO of the Plaza Hotel & Casino. “At the Plaza, we celebrate the history of Las Vegas and wanted to share this vast collection of sports memorabilia with the general public. With the holiday shopping season fast approaching, this pop-up gallery is a great opportunity for those looking for sports memorabilia that also was a unique piece of Las Vegas history.”
Beginning Nov. 4, Las Vegas Club Sports Memorabilia Gallery will be open from 3 to 11 p.m., seven days a week.
The Plaza Hotel & Casino will donate 10 percent of every sale in the gallery to the UNLV Libraries Special Collections that collects unique, historical materials documenting the development of Las Vegas, its significant role in gaming and entertainment and as an urban landscape in 21st century America.
