The grand opening of Score! Be the Legend at the Luxor on Tuesday night drew an all-star turnout, and contributing photographer Erik Kabik was on hand for a celebrity-studded photo gallery.
Attendees included Marcus Allen, Warren Moon, Mike Tyson, Leigh Steinberg, Leon Spinks, Rashida Ali and her son, James Tillis, Maricela Cornejo, former Mayor Oscar Goodman and his showgirls, cast members of “Fantasy” at the Luxor and Thunder From Down Under at Excalibur and Score!’s Jim Beckman.
The 10,000-square-foot interactive sports exhibit contains more than 200 prized pieces in eight galleries valued in the millions. It features items dating to the early 20th century and includes the 1999 Team USA World Cup championship trophy, the 1981 Heisman Trophy awarded to legendary USC tailback Marcus Allen, championship rings, World Series trophies and the largest and most diverse collection of game-worn jerseys anywhere.
It’s the only place in the world where fans can see many of the great Halls of Fame in one place like never before for football, basketball, hockey, baseball, Team USA Soccer and even our Las Vegas Motor Speedway.
Sports fans get a chance to “Be the Legend” by participating in challenges such as an NHL-themed stick-handling drill, college combine tests, a baseball speed pitch, a peripheral vision test, a NASCAR-themed pit stop and a vertical leap test all designed to see how they compare to the pros.
