NEW Pharaoh's Club Clay Poker Chips

I'd like to introduce you to the new line of true clay poker chips from TheChipRoom.com and ChipTalk.net. We have teamed together to bring to the you a new version of the famous Pharaoh's Club poker chips.

The new line continues to be produced as a true compression molded clay chip. Now the Pharaoh's Club will have a unique custom mold, larger inlays, and two new designs -- A 5Ę chip and a $5000 chip.

Below are the latest images of the new line of chips and instructions on purchasing them. Jim Shaffer will take over editing this post to keep the latest info readily available. Once again we all owe John Faulhaber (Johnny5) a big "thank you" for helping bring the original design to the New Pharaoh's Club clay chips. We decided to keep all the exact same colors and edge spot (insert) colors in order to match existing sets of Pharaoh's.

The ChipTalk membership has helped design a new insert progression scheme. We are pleased to have secured authorization to use some new unique spots from this manufacturer such as the "8V" configuration.

Subscribe to this thread to watch for news of the final versions and shipping information.

** NOTE: Do not send messages to TenPercenter (Greg) about these chips... ChipTalk does not sell chips. Contact jimshaf921 of TheChipRoom.com for questions about these chips.

--------------------------------------------

These are the latest mockups. The final product will be on a this new unique mold.These are representations only; The final product may have slight differences.

PRE-SALE Pricing
This pricing is available for ChipTalk members only for a very short time. The pre-sale will run until December 30th. At that point, the prices will go up to the anticipated retail price of $.43/chip. I'm sure we will offer a discount to ChipTalk members, but not near the $.39/chip price. The chips are expected to arrive at our shop on December 31st.

CHIP UPDATE 1-11
GOOD NEWS!! The chips are on their way. We are still trying to nail down when they will land and clear customs and a Bill of Lading for our customs broaker and to make sure what they shipped. They should be in our warehouse by Friday, barring any customs delays.

CHIP UPDATE 1-14
Just got a call from Delta Airlines. The chips are on the ground in Michigan!!! Still don't have the Bill of Lading, hopefully it is with the shipment.

CHIP UPDATE 1-15
Just got a call from the freight forwarder. The chips somehow cleared customs, without the Bill of Lading. It must be with the shipment. The chips are on a truck heading to The Chip Room!!!

Post Re: Introducing the NEW Pharaoh's Club Poker Chips

Now let me give you a little background and a short story of how we got here.

The Pharaoh's Club poker chip line came to an end in July 2009 when the original Paulson version was discontinued. While stock may remain at a few stores for a short time, there will be no more Paulson versions produced. I have never considered retiring the line though, it's just too historic to let go.

The first ever purchase of Pharaoh's Club chips was in early 2005 and it was a grass roots effort among individuals looking for a great new chip. As the largest group buy of chips ever on this site (possibly ever anywhere), it was meant to take advantage of volume pricing to get everyone the best price possible. In the last four years Paulson and other true clay chips have increased in price so much as to be out of reach for many home poker players.

In order to keep the Pharaoh's Club chips in reach of the average home player, we chose to build the new Pharaoh's line on one of the most successful true clay chips in the last two years. So far chips of this type have been sold exclusively here at ChipTalk.net (see the compression clay Desert Palms and Dunes Commem.). Pharaoh's Club chips are one of the most successful and widely known lines of fantasy casino chips ever. We want to make the new Pharaoh's Club the best value in the market of a true compression molded clay chip.

We hope the experts will get samples and recommend the new Pharaoh's Club clay chips to those players that want a true clay chip at a great price. We also hope that these new clays can augment existing Pharaoh's sets that need topping off.

As always, we welcome any questions and comments.

Thumbs up Re: Introducing the NEW Pharaoh's Club Clay Poker Chips

The "Pharaohs" mold is OUTSTANDING. This is a really great idea and if the quality is as good as my compression molded Dunes Commemoratives then I say you have another winner on your hands.
Great, great chips. Good Luck.

Re: Introducing the NEW Pharaoh's Club Clay Poker Chips

I always thought that the smaller inlay on the Paulsons made the terrific designs hard to appreciate...so this is a sensational development. They look great!

I've been considering a cash set of the DPs, as an inexpensive alternative to Paulsons, so I'll be watching this thread with interest...what a great idea!

Not sure about that spot on the $5 chip, but the new iteration looks great. The mold with the word Pharoah's twice is sick.

Re: Introducing the NEW Pharaoh's Club Clay Poker Chips

Are these the same composition as the DP/Dunes compressions on a different mold?

edit: nevermind just saw the little print in post #2

Re: Introducing the NEW Pharaoh's Club Clay Poker Chips

Please make them 39mm (Dunes/DPs are 40mm). That way people with existing sets can add-on without a size disparity. Interested in a tourney set!

Re: Introducing the NEW Pharaoh's Club Clay Poker Chips

that mold looks good. if they are anywhere NEAR the quality of the DP's, then awesome. The only thing I'd like to see, and it's very picky, is that the labels be oriented the same direction on both sides of the chip. Not many chips do this but it gives the chip an extra WOW.

Wow. The custom mold will really put these chips over the top. Will you guys also be doing an NCV version as well?
