    Hi All,

    Greetings from the Philly suburbs (originally from Philly). Been lurking for a few months and decided to join the party. I was away from the felt for about 10 years, but have recently decided to start playing again. Being that I am (supposedly) 10 years more mature, I want to begin compiling a big boy set of chips. Picked up a 1000pc set of Crazyhorse chips (branded Milanos) and they definitely work for the games that I hold. However I have a strong interest in putting together a nice Paulson set, or multiple sets. I know they are hard to come by these days with GPI backing out of the homegame market, but I'm still focused on beginning a hobby of collecting. Therefore, any friendly advice you have would be greatly appreciated.

    In terms of interest, I really like the National Poker Series, World TH&C, and Classics. I still don't know a lot about specific casino chips, mainly which are true collector's items and rare finds, but I plan to learn as I go.

    Thank you so much for welcoming me and I look forward to catching up soon!

    DC

    Welcome, @DC2016. So you're taking the path oft traveled around here -- buy a nice of chips and shortly thereafter start thinking about an upgrade. It's a slippery slope but it's quite a ride. Do post with any questions you may have, although from your post it seems that you are already quite knowledgeable.
