Here's a piece of pirate booty you don't see every day... an almost priceless (at least when measured by hysterical decibels) photo of The Steve, bedecked stem to stern in full pirate regalia. The photo - an original UPI International photograph which still retains its typed and taped on caption - was taken at the news conference wherein Cap'ynn Steve announced the pending arrival of Treasure Island and its gaggle of wenches and deck swabbers.

Steve Wynn In a Pirate Hat

The caption:

Steve Wynn, chairman of Mirage Resorts Incorporated, wearing a pirate's hat, announced at a Las Vegas news conference, 10.29, that his 3,000-room Mirage will be joined in about two years with an adjacent 3,000-room resort to be called Treasure Island. Wynn also revealed that The Mirage will become home of the Cirque du Soleil circus on November 22, 1993, which will be the third anniversary of The Mirage.

Asking? $12 + $5 shipping for this truly one of a kind gem that we're positive Rear Admiral Wynn would love to have walk the plank into information oblivion. Makes a great International Talk Like Steve Wynn In A Pirate Hat Day gift for the Wynn fan boy you know and love.

Aaaargh... those drapes are delicious matey!
