From the old Billy Martin Collection New York. This interesting card holder has a small (2 3/4 inch) cast metal figuring as the centerpiece. Very detailed one would think it is much bigger, and that is the charm. The rider looks like a vaquero or arena rider of Mexican or Spanish costume, and this easily fit in the race track room or the high roller tables in Vegas. It is a one of or a very small production run that was made in the USA according to the sticker on the bottom. The card holder is SILVER Plated and black velvet lined. We are dating it to the mid seventies and think it would be a total conversation piece it the game room or on a desk or just plain admired anywhere, let your imagination decide. Billy Martin, after his baseball career, opened two high end western shops, one in LA and the other in New York. This as well as some other pieces are from that collection, and comes with a Billy Martin store flyer to prove its pedigree !
