    Not much. I don't have the space or money to keep all the sets and I don't play as much anymore.

    I've bought and sold a lot of them. Currently I have: BCC High Rollers Club set (~3400), Paulson Indian Chiefs set (700), Paulson Palms Stuff Magazine Set (1600), TRK The Palms (lcrown) cash set (400), and Paulson Ultimate Bet (4000).

    This is after the sets I sold the past year - Paulson Pharaoh's (700), TRK Kings Crown (800), Paulson Vegas World (1200), Chipco Silver Dollar (600), ASM HHR 312 blanks (2500), TRK Kings Crown hotstamps (650).

    I'm probably forgetting some.
    Ugh just typing this out makes me realize I have way too many tourny chips. :dead:

    Not much? :happy:
    Over 10 000 is a respectable amount still.

    In my highest times I used to have a bit over 10 000 too, but now I have gone down to 4 200 (plus replacements and samples). Methinks that is enough for me currently. I only have GCOP tourney, Paulson GCR tourney, BCC Desert Palms small cash and just acquired Colony Club cash set. Future holds what future holds. Dunno yet.

    Blue Chip Company (BCC), same family as Paulson, except they use an older Paulson formula and they use blind monkeys to cut and paste their inlays.

    BCC was bought out by Paulson a few years ago, so no more.

    Does cpc allow you to have writing all the way to the edge like that?

    I think the 1-3/8” giant inlay is what you’re referring to. Paulson and BCC both offered it. I believe the biggest size inlay CPC offers is 1-1/16” suited to certain molds, such as the FDL mold.

    But I think if you really push CPC, they can give you a non-traditional bigger inlay on a mold designed for smaller inlays, such as the chip below. Note how the inlay flows outside of the inner circle indentation of the mold.

    Seems like the best chips came from Bcc, missed that bandwagon

    BTW, giant inlay is not truly “to-the-edge.” You still see a bit of the edge spot on the chip face.

    If you want truly “to-the-edge” and not looking for ceramic/plastic chips, then only Paulson is crazy enough to offer something like that. It’s pretty stupid really, a graphic label that goes all the way to the edge, having to redraw the edge spots on the inlay itself.

    It’s all subjective. I love the giant inlay but most people actually like the grand inlay so more of the chip surface with its pretty edge spots can show up. A giant inlay without matching background colors to the base color of the chip has some drawbacks - being difficult to gauge the size of the pot, for example.

    there was also another BCC set with a slight western theme but I can't for the life of me remember how they came about. Very similar to the protege line but on either the TFP or flame mold. Not sure they were part of a GB or what but they were nice.
