That is for sure a damn fine looking chip. $499 though? :banghead:

It does make me wonder though... in terms of singles, what's the most a single around here has been sold for (and what were the chips)?

Singles don’t get passed around here much. There are other forums for that. Off the top of my head, authentic prop chips from Rounders have sold for $120 to $150 here, I think.
but that’s small potato’s in the weirdo world of singles.

We have all seen singles for thousands of dollars on ebay... the most for a single chip I know is a numbered Nevada Lodge $500 chip... the buyer wasn't satisfied with one so he bought 2 at $275 each!!

There are no GOOD forums for passing casino chip singles unfortunately. PCF needs a singles community!
That inlay is terrible and so dated, and the house mold font is bad. But those colors are amazing. POP POP POP.
Chipboard?

there’s singles on the auction going for like $4500+

Despite seeing this a dozen plus times already (it’s been bouncing around ebay forever it seems) I said the same exact thing and then remembered why I hadn’t boughten it already :LOL: :laugh:

thechipboard is a forum, I'll give you that
half the sales point to ebay auctions
90% of actual sales are from the same 4 people at the same prices that didn't sell a week or a month ago
i've posted several "wanted" over the years and gotten a response to only one ever

I've always found chipboard to be clique-ish. They don't welcome newcomers over there.
In order to ba a successful Chip Board user you must do the following...
1) you must be an absolute computer wiz, or own an original 1982 commodore 64... Brie has zero issues by I have tried with a phone, iPad, Mac Book Pro 2019 and yet to find a way to navigate that site... I strongly suggest the 64 route... but if you find another way... mad props to ya!!

2) become a CCGTCxyzthwxys member... (if you are not a member they won't play ball)

3) these gentlemen are older and have been collecting together since dinos ruled the earth... being as nice as possible doesn't cut it!! You need a female Identity... or a smoking hot 25 year old girlfriend that is obsessed with chips as much as you are... I understand this is though to accomplish and these guys will see right through a fake female account! Consider the real deal... yes I am suggesting a sex change here... I know its extreme but how far would you go to get the chips you need.

4) you have to play by their rules... some only accept a check and refuse to open a paypal account. Some are extremely grumpy and say they sent invoices that never actually make it... just apologize and square up on debts as quickly as possible.

5) once you are accepted into the clique, share as many strange weird sexually driven stories you can find off the internet... I have no idea what this has to do with a chipping site. But Brie has shown me some of the post there that are truly disturbing and again have absolutely nothing at all to do with chipping, but yet they are posted there quite regularly.

6) bring something to contribute!!! Look at it from their prospective... they don't want noobs running in and buying up their stock! They have spent years finding their chips (all singles collectors much different than our mind set here) they not only want to sell but also find chips that they need obviously... running in there guns blazing hey I need everything on this list. As many as you have! That's going to get zero responses. List some harder to find singles that aren't helping any of your sets and get established before pushing for help from these guys.

7) 2nd most important to becoming a CCGT member is you have to appear as a singles collector!!! These guys dont like set collectors at all!!! I even herd someone went to the convention and asked a vendor if he had anymore of a particular chip... the vendor said you're a PCF member aren't you??? Follwed by I'm not interested in selling you any of my chips! Sad I agree, we are all in this hobby together. Remember these guys have been around... they know what we do over here... they can see threads about murdering casino chips, I'm absolutely positive and have talked to a couple of them that categorize our entire community as practicing these habits.

While some of this obviously was intended to be funny, I know my sense of humor is awful... I also believe there are many good points in there! Just my take on how to breach the other side of the chipping community. Hope you enjoyed!!

That would be a numbered Nevada Club $500 chip Sir. :tup: Considering only 99 of these beauties were ever made and who knows how many have survived, $275 per was a bargain for the opportunity to own one of these rare chips. # 59 pictured here.

You are aware that this was just a cage employee randomly stamping numbers on 10000 or so chips? :D

I was a member of CCGTCC way back when, and I also used my real name (they don't like handles or screen names) and all I was ever able to do there was buy... Never a lick of interest in the stuff I had for sale... Usually For Sale ads didn't even get a response...

Maybe I should've posted some weird sex stories...

This is awesome Ben. Those old farts would hate me:

"That's a beautiful $5 chip, Arthur. Do you have 1200 more?"

Unfortunately you are probably correct... but again probably for the wrong reasons.... most are just wondering what the hell kind of weird sex stories are being passed around amongst a group of retired men... and one 25 year old woman.... Lmfao
