While many have expressed interest in these particular chips, the prospect of valuing that interest has somewhat eluded me. So it's clear, I know well the origin of these. They are among the last of the buys made from TR king before the close. The project came about at the hands of forumite warewulf who handled the group buy & a subsequent buy for non-spot hot stamps & some spotted hotstamps which bore the suicide king design. The inlays these bear were designed by Motion City Soundtrack keyboardist Jesse Johnson. (Motion City Soundtrack is a very successful pop-punk act ~Highly acclaimed and awarded.) I participated in the buy & chose these color/spot patterns as well as denominations. Let's consider them "identified." There are a number of TR king chips still available because of the quantities produced which still fetch alarming prices ~frequently north of $5 per chip. For example the stock denominated TRK chips which have always been readily available & were produced in massive quantities by TRK sell easily at $5 each in sample sets. By comparison, those chips are a "dime a dozen." ~so to speak. Which brings us to the crux. These tremendously distinctive albeit playable collectors items are one of a kind. There are literally no other chips precisely like these ones. There are 100 of each denomination in pristine condition un-oiled (eww) some are even still chalky. They have been played very little ~perhaps 2 maybe 3 sessions of tournament play at home. In my own estimation I could see the set going for $10/chip at $3000. There are times when I think, "I could probably live with that." Then there are the times I think, "what about when I'm 70? ~will they be worth something like $150,000? maybe they're worth that now?" (lol @ $500/chip) But, being involved in the gaming industry, it's not difficult to envision chips being phased out. The corporate level folks don't want to employ dealers & do stuff the slow way (by hand) they envision robots doing the work ~certainly we don't like this idea much like the days the luddites opposed the cotton mill. But you already know there's automated roulette and blackjack. And we all value online poker. Those same folks want to see hand dealt poker go the way of the dodo & applications such as empower online gaming find their way in to the brick & mortar casino. So, of course speculatively, these could be something I might retire on?
