    I have a few extra buttons from the group buy. I've won CT member giveaway contests before, and I'd like to pay it forward. Here's some pics of the buttons:

    Prize: One dealer button of my choosing, shipped within the US. The winner can pay the difference for international shipping. I will take the winner's input on the button design into account.

    Contest: The winner will be the member who posts in this thread a photo or link to a photo of the largest number of Paulson Par-a-Dice chips, next to a note with their CT username. Chips should be stacked in groups of twenty for the verification photo. The contest will end on or after Feb 1, 2015, when I will post confirming the winner.

    Eligibility: All CT members not in the group buy are eligible.

    Here's a set so large it took three pics (and I'm pretty sure I still didn't get them all....):

    I was about to say you were double disqualified, but I think the current chips are in fact Paulsons, with a house mold (verification would be nice). You're only singly disqualified, because there's no note that says "BGinGA".

    Thanks for the opportunity.

    I only started these during Jim's BF sale so I missed the button GB. There are 1010 shown in the picture. The reds are worn and fit 21 to a rack and you will notice the right most 2 racks have spacers but the middle 2 have 21 each hence the extra 10 chips. I actually have about 40-50 more reds/greens but they are with a friend.

    Been using these for our weekly cash game and really love them. This set accommodates 1/2 or 2/5 nicely.

    Nice set, especially putting it together a year after Jim started selling them. Cash sets with 5 figure banks both impress me and make me feel poor.

    Don't get discouraged if you're eligible but don't match up to Chiptalker's set. I'm feeling generous though I'm not promising anything. I do think a matching dealer button, like the Dude's rug, really ties the place together.

    Is that monster an official entry? Even the breakdowns you have in the listing are formidable.

    I didn't follow the directions per you original post so it wouldn't be fair to the others that did. If I get a chance I'll make an official entry with these and my par-a-dice roulette chips.

    Well, with one qualifying entry, Chiptalker is the winner and the contest is now closed. Very solid set, I would have been tempted to send a button anyway if owens76 had delivered the suplex from the top rope (dunno if that's possible, don't really watch wrestling). PM is on the way.
