    Yea, just waiting on Abbiati opening up a Vegas office, and then... well I've always wanted to do a proper High Rollers Club plaque for my set, complete w/ lunettes and gold lace.

    I think Abbiati is as close to B&G as you can get for plaques.

    Not sure if you've contacted them, but earlier this year I was told by the end of the year the office would be open. Just emailed with a rep earlier this week and was told now it looks like the end of 2016. He didn't sound overly optimistic.

    I was told via email that they couldn't sell to me. I don't know whether that was (a) because I'm in the US or (b) because I had been inquiring specifically about chips (though I don't think the rep who answered today wasn't privy to my original inquiry).

    In any case, I suppose whoever is interested in plaques and not chips may as well give it a shot and try to order.

    Most likely (b). Before going with Matsui I inquired about plaques with Abbiati and they were willing to sell to me.

    What a great thread. A lot of excellent sets made by The Blue Chip Company (BCC). When they got it right their chips are some of the best ever made.

    Just like the OP, it's been a few years since I've been back snooping around, in an effort to combat any onset of chip disease.

    This thread is a great trip down memory lane indeed. I also noticed that my Custom BCC pics were gone as well, so I thought I would contribute to the journey.

    I don't know what happened to all my hi-res images, but here's what I could salvage from my old thread from 2007.

    The hotstamped T-mold add-on came in 2013.

    Wow I've been gone from Chiptalk for a while as well, digging up this thread brings back a lot of memories. I'm gonna have to repost a bunch of my chip sets soon.
