    Here we go! I love the T-mold, but I have another T-mold set and no plans on making this a custom set of mine anytime soon. None of these chips have been played to my knowledge. There are some chips with marks/stains of other colors on them. See post #8 for an example. I believe the yellows have the worst of it, but if anyone is concerned and seriously considering a purchase I can go through more of them.

    Breakdown:

    242 Sherbert green
    242 Charcoal
    122 Lavender
    170 Canary Yellow
    102 Chocolate
    12 Hot Pink
    50 Royal Red
    30 Dark Green
    10 Purple
    10 Grey
    10 Dark Blue

    $850 shipped for the 1000 chips above
    $950 shipped for all 1200 chips


    I also have 200 Horizon blue chips that are already stamped. I will wait a bit to see if the buyer of the set would like them for an additional $150USD, otherwise I may sell them on their own. I have to borrow a picture since these would be shipped later and seperately. I wonder who might have them? :)

    The minimum I would accept is $850USD shipped CAN/CONUS but I'm looking to make a bit more than that. :)

    They would require milling to be labeled. Keep your money Bill, don't you think you need to add to your TRK set? ;)

    I have had 2 sets of t-molds in the past and wonder why I ever sold them.
    That was a few years ago so my buy/sell prices probably aren't relevant.
    But I think the best price point for comparison would be http://www.holdempokerchips.com.
    Many of the best colors, like some of the ones you have here, are sold out. But they can still be had
    for 69c / chip.
    GLWS. If you break the set up I may be interested in a rack or 2.

    Yep there's definitely some still available at 0.69c/chip. I paid a premium for a select few of them but not many.

    If holdempokerchips had more canary yellow chips when I bought them, I would have more. :)

    Here are some examples of contamination I found within my set:

    These incredible chips are just begging for a beautiful custom hotstamp...

    I like these a lot. @Gear , what would it cost me to have all of these milled and labeled? PM is fine if you won't want to post it here.

    Thanks,

    @Azcat had a Tmold tournament set back in the day. Always liked playing with those chips.

    @detroitdad, it might be cheaper to pay for custom dies and get these hotstamped. I think it was $50 for the die when I had my tournament set made. I know how you like solid hotstamps... Might even be able to get just denoms done, if that's what you're after. CPC has stock denoms (or they used to when they were ASM).

    Let me stress how absolutely perfect these chips are for a hotstamp. I had a small set years ago and they were gorgeous. Don't know if it's the color of the chips, the quality of their composition or what, but it was a match made in heaven.

    These would be cool for a fantasy secondary Samurai Palace tourney set. You could hot stamp the kanji character (Samurai) from the inlays of the other chips to tie the two sets together in a theme.

    Purchasing/Milling/Labeling is out of my prices range. I don't like dropping my bank roll below 4k.

    Wouldn't the chips still need to be milled to be hot stamped? Otherwise is there a concern for spinners? Normally I love a good spinner. Not in a poker chip.

    Hot stamping was something that also occurred to me. I don't think CPC would hot stamp t molds. It doesn't hurt to ask. That will be my next email.

    Lets assume cpc won't hot stamp t molds. Who/what are my other options?

    @Frank , if you would rather I take this discussion else where let me know. I'm guessing you don't have a problem with it. I feel like I should at least ask .

    You would definitely want someone experienced to do the stamping, so the could properly scrape the excess material. If that is not done, you will definitely end up with spinners.
    If you get someone who knows what they're doing, these should come out fine!(y) :thumbsup:

    I reached out to @cgraham86 and emailed CPC to see what they have to say. Anyone have @cgraham86 email address? He hasn't been on PCF since the 7th.

    Spragg got back with me. They only stamp their chips. Stated that it works best with fresh clay.

    Note that's true with ASMs/CPCs, these were from BCC so it's a different clay / fabrication process. T-molds stamp beautifully (had these stamped last year with stock from holdempokerchips):

    edit to add: these were stamped by monkeydog

    Thanks alot!

    @SuckoutKing did mine many moons ago. He was a true artist and craftsman. Don't know if he's still active...

    I've reached out to a few people. I didn't know that he did them at one time. He'll see the tag eventually and sound off I'm sure.

    @monkeydog stamped my set of T-Molds. Bubbs' Hot Stamp Tourney. I haven't posted pictures yet (it's been only a year after all :p)...

    You've seen the set at my place though... Getting old sucks huh? :ROFL: :ROFLMAO:

    I had 15+ year old Nevada Mold chips stamped by BCC. Came out great. CPC just doesn't want to deal with other mfg chips. Makes sense though -- If they screw them up, they can't be replaced.

    Unfortunately, No I am no longer in the Hot Stamp game! Ended up selling my hand stamp press to cgraham86. I would recommend him greatly. Does very nice work.
    Felt like once BCC sold, all the really good stamping chips were gone. ASM ofcourse are still around but there was just something special about those BCC chips for stamping!

    Good luck with your sale Travis! Those are some real beauties (y) :thumbsup:

    Would love the Reds and the yellows if split. The Reds are more my prize....
