    A Phyllis McGuire Rat Pack Era Black Jack Table with Seven Stools and Gaming Pieces
    Marks: (various)
    38-1/2 x 66 x 39 inches (97.8 x 167.6 x 99.1 cm) (table)
    39-1/2 x 17-1/2 x 16-1/2 inches (100.3 x 44.5 x 41.9 cm) (stool)

    The custom-made Black Jack table constructed of red and white Formica and plywood with seven red, white and blue vinyl-upholstered, painted metal and brass bar stools. When removed, the red oval Formica top reveals a green felt and wood-trimmed gaming table with recessed chip caddy and hidden cash box and marked BLACK JACK, PAYS 3 TO 2, Dealer must stand on 17 and must draw to 16. The lot includes a Chuck-A-Luck three dice tumbler cage and four boxes of Taylor & Co. custom poker chips, each personalized with Phyllis McGuire's photograph to center (133 maroon chips, 131 blue chips and 86 green chips).

    Phyllis McGuire loved dealing Black Jack and enjoyed the role of celebrity dealer at Las Vegas charity events for many years. For over fifty years she hosted Black Jack games in her home at this table with members of the Rat Pack and other friends and celebrities including Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Sammy Davis, Jr, Johnny Carson and Tony Curtis. The felt gaming surface was replaced in the 1970s.

    Property from the Estate of Phyllis McGuire
