The Museum of Gaming History is growing and we need your support. The MoGH came to life in 2014 with the showing of exhibits at the El Cortez Hotel and the Mob Museum. We are working on showing several new exhibits in the coming year. The MoGH needs your support to fund these projects. We seek to grow the hobby by expanding interest in Gaming History.

Jerry Vergatos, LM-8093-241
Currently Jerry is the President of the Casino Collectibles Association (CCA) and is serving his second term. Originally from New York City, he has recently moved to Arizona with his wife of 38 years. They have two wonderful sons who currently reside in Colorado and California and work in the computer information systems industry.

His work experience has run the gamut in both retail and the food and the beverage industry. He has owned over nine successful businesses including restaurants, liquor stores, delis, and a hotel. He was also in upper management of a group of Subway Stores, Cinnabon, and Furr's Cafeterias.

His hobbies include collecting casino memorabilia, coin and currency and being a nuisance to his wife. He is on the Board of Directors of the Mercedes Club of America Mile High Section, and Ability Colorado, a Cerebral Palsy charity. He also writes the Member's Corner column in the club magazine hoping to highlight our members.

His desire to help the Museum of Gaming History is evident, as he believes it will be our true legacy and creates a positive showcase of our hobby and will bring new interest and members to our club.
