A peek at some of the things up for sale

Potter and Potter was founded in 2007 in Chicago and specializes in paper Americana, vintage advertising, rare books, playingMemorabilia-Auction-Caters-to-Poker-Casino-Fans cards, gambling memorabilia, posters, fine prints, vintage toys, and magic collectibles.

The auction house’s business has grown to include gambling collectibles. This next auction, which is part of an annual gambling memorabilia event, will include a broad range of things.

“This is, in some ways, our most varied auction of the year,” Slabaugh remarked. “And it’s difficult not to share part of the nostalgia evoked by these old-time entertainment machines, placards, chips, cards, and games as you walk through our museum right now.” We’re thrilled to offer such a diverse range of products in one catalog.”

1646859382_774_Memorabilia-Auction-Caters-to-Poker-Casino-Fans 1646859383_385_Memorabilia-Auction-Caters-to-Poker-Casino-FansSlabaugh highlighted a few topics that poker players would find particularly interesting. A copy of Henry Winterblossom’s The Game of Draw Poker, published in 1875, is included in Lot 571. This was the first full-length book on poker strategy, complete with a mathematical explanation of the game.

Lot 200 features a unique item that may interest poker players as well. “Devil & Cards” is a porcelain work of art by German manufacturer Royal Bayreuth. In the piece, the devil is holding a deck of cards with the King of diamonds visible.

Another lot, 145, combines a little bit of magic with poker. “Carter Beats the Devil” is a popular 1920s magic poster depicting magician Charles Carter playing the devil while holding a winning poker hand. The poster was used as the dust cover image for Glen David Gold’s book of the same name.

There are a lot of poker chip collections.1646859385_16_Memorabilia-Auction-Caters-to-Poker-Casino-Fans

In the auction, poker fans will discover a wide variety of legendary chips. There are different compositions and styles from the twentieth century, ranging from individual casino chips to sets.

Lot 145 is a set of clay eagle poker chips in a carved wooden container that is exceptionally stunning. An vintage deck of cards is included in the case’s complex design.

Another highlighted item is a painstakingly organized collection of Benevolent and Protective Order of Elks chips (Lot 92), which is believed to be worth $2,000 to $3,000. About 1,000 samples are divided in three binders in this collection.

Clay, metal, plastic, other composition materials are used to make the chips, which come in a variety of designs and denominations. 

A collection of outdated antique casino chips (Lot 55) mostly from Nevada, including Las Vegas and other cities and villages throughout the state, is also included in the sale. The value of this collection of roughly 1,200 chips is estimated to be between $2,000 and $4,000.


Rare books, playing cards, and other collectibles are available.

A first edition of S.W. Erdnase’s “The Expert at the Card Table” is up for auction. “The most meticulously researched book ever published on the art of manipulating cards at gambling tables,” according to the author, who released it in Chicago in 1902.

Marshall D. Smith contributed over 100 “from life” illustrations to the book. Observers estimate the book’s worth to be between $6,000 and $9,000. Potter sold a comparable model for over $17,000 in 2019.

You’re also in luck if you’re looking for some antique playing cards. Cards weren’t always easy to come by in the nineteenth century, and they were often reused.

These were often twisted and marked, with the majority of them not surviving to this day. Potter, on the other hand, is providing a few exceptional cases that did. 

A near-mint collection of “Murphy Varnish” transformation cards (Lot 278), valued at $4,000 to $6,000, is included. This unique, humorous transformation deck from circa 1883 serves a dual purpose by promoting the brand. The backs of the cards have red leaf patterns and a charioteer in a Murphy Varnish chariot. 

1646859388_620_Memorabilia-Auction-Caters-to-Poker-Casino-FansA pack of 12 Jerry’s Nugget Casino Las Vegas playing cards (Lot 363), valued at $3,000 to $5,000, may be of interest to Vegas enthusiasts. In the 1970s, the deck was produced in Cincinnati by the United States Playing Card Company.

Six shrink-wrapped red backs and six shrink-wrapped blue backs make up the set. Other casino artifacts, such as roulette and slot machine games, are also mentioned in the auction catalog.

There were even cheating gadgets on display.

Poker wasn’t always on the up and up in the nineteenth century. Cheating might be a big part of the game, whether you’re playing in an Old West saloon or on a Mississippi riverboat.

Visitors to the Potter auction may also place a bid on some old cheating gadgets. F.R. Ritter’s “Combined Treatise on Advantage Card Playing and Draw Poker” is one such piece.

In this context, “advantage play” meant cheating. The book includes illustrations of marked cards, hold-outs (which are used to hide cards), and other hustling tactics. Officials at the auction house estimate the value of this rare book from 1905 to be between $6,000 and $9,000.

The auction may be of interest to the gambling collector with a few extra dollars. Visit for additional details. The auction catalog may be seen in its entirety by clicking here.
