Calling all sports fans: Own a piece of history from the old Las Vegas Club


“Like Mike — I’d like to be like Mike!” Before Michael Jordan joined the Chicago Bulls in 1984, the legend played for the North Carolina Tar Heels in college. Photo courtesy of The Plaza Hotel & Casino.

Ever wish you could turn back the hands of time and maybe watch that epic game? Sure, you can catch classic sports if you have the fancy cable, but we can do better than that.

Debuting next Tuesday, Nov. 3, at 7 p.m., the Plaza Hotel & Casino celebrates the grand opening of Las Vegas Club Sports Memorabilia Gallery with a special pop-up gallery. It will have plenty of sports-themed memorabilia that wowed guests at the old Las Vegas Club Hotel & Casino in downtown. Open to the public, the grand opening will also include a raffle to win one of the hotel’s historic pieces.


Hey, these bats can be in a league of their own. This autographed bat collection from the 1946-1958 World Series games can be yours as early as next week. Photo courtesy of the Plaza Hotel & Casino.

At this pop-up gallery, hundreds of sports-related items will be on display but guess what? You can buy whatever you want, too. The gallery includes a signed Michael Jordan North Carolina Tar Heels basketball jersey, an autographed bat collection from the 1946-1958 World Series games, a framed Pete Rose #14 Montreal Expos jersey and much more.

Beginning Wednesday, Nov. 4, folks can check out this Las Vegas attraction and store from 3 p.m. to 11 p.m., daily.


Most folks take their Vegas jackpot winnings back home, but my dad decided to stay here instead. That’s how I left Seattle almost 20 years ago. I moved from greenery and rainy days to hot summers, palm trees and desert. As much as I love my hometown, I decided to stick around Vegas. This city just has so much to offer. You don’t even have to be a gambler, bar hopper or an all-night partier. I love Vegas for its awesome vegan-friendly spots, concerts, swanky hotel suites and spas so big, they’re like castles. The pool scene is not too shabby either, which is why I love taking stay-cations. Besides living it up -- Vegas style -- I’m hanging out with my handsome hubby, adorable baby girl, two cats and super-fluffy Shih-Tzu. I’m also a huge fan of '90s music, shows and movies. You can find me on Google+ and Twitter.
