    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.
