Battle Born Pins

Vegas Vickie Pin

This kicking neon cowgirl sign was created in 1980 by Ad Art’s Jack Dubois and Charles Barnard for the "Glitter Gulch" casino on Fremont St. The sign gained national attention in 1994 when she “married” her neighboring neon cowboy, Vegas Vic, who currently stands over the former Pioneer Club building. Vickie stood a whole 10 ft taller than her counterpart, and was removed on June 12, 2017.

The stylistic differences between the two signs is apparent when you see them side by side. Vic's inspiration artwork is iconic from 1947, and Vickie appears in all of her flashy 80's glory.

This pin measures approximately 1.5" tall and is complete with a moving leg!

Battle Born Pins is based in Las Vegas, Nevada, the "Battle Born"  state! These pins are inspired by vintage neon signs and architecture. Many of these monuments are no longer with us, so these pins are a tiny reminder of the beautiful mid-century city Vegas once had. We hope that by spreading awareness of these iconic designs more people will be interested in preserving the signs and buildings that are still left.
