Snow globes, shot glasses and Criss Angel magic sets are for amateurs. If you want the ultimate Vegas souvenir, you have to wait until February 15, when the bidding at the Nate Sanders Auction house closes on a 500-pound piece of concrete that sat around the Riviera for more than 20 years. But it’s not just any hunk of concrete—this one’s got Michael Jackson’s handprint, footprints and signature in it. Back in 1984, the Riviera planned to set up its own Walk of Fame. When red tape and construction difficulties halted the project, the MJ slab found its way to the casino basement. After 21 years, Riviera management raffled the slab off to some old guy named Johnny, who gave it to auctioneer Nate Sanders, who might now give it to you, if the price is right. How much does Sanders think the slab will go for? Well, let’s just say, it’s more than a snow globe, a shot glass, and a Criss Angel magic set ... combined.
