    For quite a few years, I've had a web site displaying my chip collection and I had neglected to update it for a couple years. There was quite a backlog of stuff to post. For a long list of reasons I needed to find a better way to publish the site, and I decided to to use Weebly. The new Weebly site is finally up and running. I still need to direct my domain name to the Weebly site, but that is a minor thing...until I get around to it, you can find all the things at jeffschips.weebly.com - Home.

    There is an education page on chips, pages for my collection of Chiptalk friends customs, current and obsolete casino chips and fantasy chips. I also have displayed all my sets going back to my first slugged sets, and my dealer button collection.

    jeffschips.weebly.com - Home

    I'm going to make a plea for custom sample sets on a separate post, but if you have a sample set of your customs you'd like to sell, I display my my collection in my poker room (I'm now on my 11th case) and I'll post them on the site as well.

    Very cool Jeff. I too had the same Paulson Noire set you used, with the 100, 500 and 1K denoms for a 300-chip tourney set. Wish I had some of the 25's in there and wish I had kept the set or even expanded it, loved those babies.

    I will console myself with the CPS set that PGI is making though, going to have 1200 of those babies! :happy:

    Good job, Jeff! That's a nice centralized collection of info very useful to folks new to the hobby that isn't readily available here, frankly.

    Let me review samples, I'm sure I need to send you some, and a dealer button.

    Well-intentioned feedback: I think you may want to mention plastic chips may or may not have a metal slug? Also visitors to your site will want to know where to buy cool chips -- of course the answer is complex but maybe mention opportunities and advice in the chiptalk section?

    Quite the collection of collections btw. :laugh: Congrats!

    Thanks!

    I think I have samples of your hot stamps, but not your labeled ASMs. I'd appreciate whatever you have to share. PM me the bill or I'm good for it until November.....

    I appreciate the feedback. I guess I need to add some detail to the plastic chips stuff. You're talking about china clays as far as non-slugged, right?

    China clays might be a whole 'nuther thing, but I was thinking of certain Bud Jones chips. Pretty sure those are in the plastic-but-good category; not sure if S2 or S7 is the differentiating factor. Need an exbert. :razz:

    The Via Lactea set is in there...gorgeous chips...especially the blue, and the yellow, and the red...oh heck...all of them.

    You gotta get stacks of those red chips in play...

    Jeff,

    Great stuff!!! I only have two more links to view to have seen it all. Will do so at another time. But really nice stuff there!! I like the presentation as well.

    As a casino chip geek, I gotta point out that your Page 1 entry for Arizona Charlies (real casino chips) you have both casinos listed (AZ Chas and AZ Chas East) but both of the chips shown are from AZ Chas East. AZ Chas now identifies it's 2 casinos as:

    Arizona Charlies Decatur (original property on Decatur)
    Arizona Charlies East or Arizona Charlies Boulder (on Boulder Highway)

    To make your AZ Chas right, you will need to drop the Arizona Charlies name or send me your snail mail addy and I will send you an AZ Chas Decatur $1 chip to post on the page.

    Jim@GamingOre.com to send me your address.

    Good job!

    Thanks Jeff, and I agree. Anybody up for a little $50/$100 PLO? Rake is 1bb/pot only, and pays for chipes! I'll be dealing; all tips are appreciated. :happy:

    In all seriousness, I really gotta get some decent action shots with plenty of $1s and $5s in them sometime...

    Great site, Jeff. I can't begin to imagine how much work that took, but the results are amazing and, from my perspective, very much worth it.

    Thanks! There are quite a few details I need to fix, mostly about putting differently properties within the same ownership. I was going to spit the display by property, not by owner and sometime didn't get it right.

    I welcome prompts from my collector friends... For example I was unclear on the Gran Derby chips (I can't remember where I got them, but they're in the live casino section and I would bet they were fantasy and I'm too lazy to go look it up ..I put the PNYs in the live/obsolete category even though I think they're in the fantasy category on some other site. They were made for a real casino and became obsolete was my thinking.

    Thanks for taking a look. And thanks for the offer...I'll definitely email you this weekend when I'm back home.

    Jeff,

    Are you familiar with ChipGuide.com? Lots of good info there, with an emphasis on scans!! Last count we were up to about 150,000 of them!!!

    You are also welcome to "submit" your scans of Home Game sets and anything else not there!

    Check these 2 links regarding Gran Derby chips:
    ChipGuide - The Online Information Source For Casino Chip Collectors
    ChipGuide - The Online Information Source For Casino Chip Collectors

    I question the Porterville chips! Strange that the place was a card room (poker, low-ball and pai gow only) yet there are roulette styled chips. Also, two different series (styles of chips) yet these chips always seem to be in New or unused condition. For a card room that was open for ten years, were are the worn chips?

    As for the PNY, definately made for a casino operation (a day cruise out of New York) but never delivered. The general term category is Unused. They are not obsolete, because they were never in-play. The vast majority of the undelivered chips were sold into the collector marketplace, more so to the ChipTalk-type community than to the single chip collectors.

    Looking forward to your email.

    The only thing I think I have in the home game area that is unusual, is the Fabulous Las Vegas chips non denom version...I have both sets, a denominated set and a non-denominated set. I am missing the blue $5,000 non-denominated version and have been searching for a long long time...any help you could provide in that arena?
