The Museum of Gaming History (MoGH) and Spinetti’s Gaming Supplies are pleased to announce a wonderful partnership.
Spinetti’s has agreed to host displays of Casino Memorabilia inside Spinetti’s Gaming Supplies at 810 S. Commerce St. in Las Vegas. There will be two massive display cases filled with historical Casino Memorabilia and admission is free. Spinetti’s store hours are 9:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday, and from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday.
When asked why he was willing to give the MoGH this valuable commercial space inside his busy store at no expense to the MoGH, Mike Spinetti said: "Gaming collectibles have been my lifelong passion. Being on the Mob Museum Advisory Board, being a life member of both the MoGH and the Casino Collectibles Association and after retiring from my real day job, opening a store in downtown Las Vegas specializing in buying/selling/trading gaming antiques and casino chips is like Christmas every day."
Jerry Vergatos, President of the CCA and the Southern Nevada Casino Collectibles Club (SNCCC), said: "Michael Spinetti has shown true dedication to the Museum of Gaming History time and time again. Patron. Supporter. Backer. Sponsor. Donor. Contributor. These are all synonyms that best describe Mr. Spinetti."
The displays are now in place inside Spinetti’s Gaming Supplies. Free parking is available in front of the store.
Next month: Let's look at what doesn't sell!
