    Hello ChipTalk and greetings from a new member - this is post #1 !

    I don't have any pr0n of my new chip purchases yet (500 Desert Palms, 700 Pharaoh's), so I thought I would share my card collection.

    Nothing vintage or rare, just current issue cards used in my game.

    The 2 Bicycle decks are for card fanning/ribbon/tricks since they have the perfect finish for that type of thing - they don't get used for poker. All the others are plastic.

    Copag- Burgundy & Green / Poker Regular
    Copag- Gold & Black / Poker Jumbo
    Copag- Red & Blue Export / Poker Jumbo
    DaVinci- Brown & Green / Poker Regular
    Kem- Red & Blue Paisley / Bridge Regular
    Copag- Red & Blue / Poker Peek Index (not in pictures)

    Bicycle Masters Edition, Red - UV500 Air-Flow Finish
    Bicycle White Raider - Air-Cushion Finish

    Welcome to Chiptalk !! That's a very good first post. You are going to have some great games with those cards. I'll be interested in seeing pron of the chips when you get those.

    Very nice card pr0n. Really like that Bicycle White Raider ace of spades design. You indicate in the OP that all but the Bicycle paper cards are used for poker play. How do you decide which to use? Wondering if it's based on game being played or just personal preference. Welcome to CT and keep up the good posts.

    Hi. Come on in. Welcome to Chiptalk. Today we'll serve some excellent DILLINGER pizza with minced beef, onion, ham and salami, boosted with strong beer. Mjummy.

    Good to have you here and good start you have over there. I have always liked KEM Paisleys. It's sad that they don't make Paisley's wider size, poker size.

    Good luck with collecting more and more and more cards and chips.

    Thanks for the greetings everyone. I will definitely post some pr0n of the Desert Palms and Pharaoh's soon.

    >How do you decide which to use? Wondering if it's based on game being played or just personal preference.

    Just preference. A brand new set-up usually gets used at the very first opportunity and maybe the next time too.
    Sometimes I will choose, and other times I will pick 2 set-ups and let whoever deals the first hand decide.

    I like them all- they're all a bit different...design/feel/etc. I started with Jumbo index but have started to appreciate and perhaps prefer Standard index a bit more lately.

    >Really like that Bicycle White Raider ace of spades design.

    Yeah, the White Raider Ace is nice. I like the face cards a lot- there is no yellow in the design, just Red Black & Blue. Gives them a distinct and 'cleaner' look.

    Here's a picture with the Copag Peek Index decks and more of the White Raiders.

    You have sold me. Next card acquisition (that I certainly don't need) is the Bicycle White Raiders. Really distinctive looking and a must have I think. Cheers.

    Here's my new set of Kem Pharaoh's - bridge size, regular index. This is my second set of Kems, and my first pre-USPC set.

    I recently saw these for the first time while reading one of the older Pharaoh related threads and was hoping I could find some online.

    I saw the bridge super index for $30 but really wanted the regular index.

    Luckily I came across a lone set-up at Amazon Wearhouse deals that worked out perfectly. Brand new, unopened but with some cosmetic damage to the outer paper sleeve - $14.99.

    Thanks! Here's a picture of the cards I've gotten since my last post.

    Da Vinci Ruote Red/Blue - Bridge Size Regular Index
    Da Vinci Fiori - Bridge Size Regular Index
    Da Vinci Venezia - Bridge Size Regular Index
    Modiano Cristallo Magenta - Poker Size 4 PIP Jumbo Index
    Modiano Cristallo Light Green - Poker Size 4 PIP Jumbo Index

    I really like the Da Vinci cards and have shifted my preference to Bridge Size Regular Index cards in recent months... however I just picked up the 2 Cristallo decks and I really like them, even though they're obviously a bit 'busy' compared to Regular Index cards.

    I collect Holland America Line casino playing cards and have quite a few to trade. Are you in the market for trading? I am new to this forum.
