    Wow! A Motorcity cash set!? Never seen those fives before. I think someone may need to see a doctor! :) Your sets are out of control! Your wife must be proud. Nice pics as always.

    The Motorcities don't receive much love but I think they are great. I have a rack of the quarters myself and those $1s are fabulous!

    My wife isn't proud - she better shouldn't know what I invest in poker chips :wink:

    There is a story behind this set, a story that began more than a year ago. I, and other CTers, got scammed by a seller on Ebay, who promised to send us chips from Detroit (MGM or MotorCity). You can read all about it here:
    http://www.chiptalk.net/forum/poker-chip-general/49373-attention-never-buy-ebayer-chiptalker.html
    After this, I tried getting the chips from someone else, which proved to be really difficult. I finally got in touch with someone living near the MotorCity casino, though, who went there every now and then, and brought a couple of chips with him each time. Over the course of the next months, he collected what I needed for the set. In the end, it took nearly a year to get there, but now it's finished. :)
