UPDATE: Companies Head To Court Over Atlantic City Casino’s “Trump” Signs
PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — As crews continue to “de-Trump” the Taj Mahal in Atlantic City, some of his signs have found their way on eBay.
This week crews began removing some of the 17 signs from the former casino, the Press of Atlantic City reports.
The Trump lettering that was affixed to the exterior of the property is apparently up for auction with the starting bid of 5,000.
“For decades, these Sanskrit-style ‘Trump’ signs greeted visitors at the entryway of Donald Trump’s iconic Trump Taj Mahal Casino Hotel in Atlantic City,” the post on eBay reads. “Featuring illuminated ruby-red glass in riveted brass casing, they are as much pieces of art as they are pieces of history.”
The seller says the signs were “procured on site and are in very good condition,” but the interior bulbs need to be replaced.
The auction will expire on Feb. 26, 2017.
Trump opened the casino in 1990 but lost control of it in a bankruptcy.
