So nice! If it was a bigger set I'd have trouble resisting!

I did realize that this set has 43mm chips. Very cool.

These have been up on ebay a few times now. There were 2 bids on this set the last time around so I guess the winner backed out. *shrug*

Wish I could buy a small amout of them

I was only able to buy a one rack heads up set during the last GB these were offered in. Would LOVE to have a 400 piece (or more!) set but I can't buy more chips ATM. Trying to sell most of mine off actually since they don't see ANY play.

Sigh

What did the last listing end at? I like these but I also like those Bud Jones chips that are listed too. I shouldn't be buying anymore either. I think I am just window shopping.

EDIT: Never mind I found it. Sniped by a eBayer with 1 feedback. hmmmm. :confused:

I checked out the pics more closely. They have the edge spot defects. I forgot what that is called. I've seen this on other BCC chips. I don't know if I would spend too much on them.

IIRC, the edge spots were split on certain denoms more so than others. Not a deal breaker for me personally.

Already four bids on these bad boys this time around. Is that you with the high bid BUBBLE?

Plenty of Paulsons and ASMs have this so-called "defect" as well. It's not uncommon and is part of the mfg process. The folks at ASM-Portland seemed to figure out the correct heat/pressure combination to minimize this with certain base/edgespot color combos. BCC didn't give a f*ck. Paulson doesn't care either...because their customers (read: casinos) likely couldn't care less about this either. It's just the finicky home market customers that care about it. I'll admit that I fall into that bucket but don't care about this as much as I used to. I think it gives the chips character. The egg-shaped inlays that BCC used to produce as well as the off center, yellow-ish inlays and grossly misshapen spots that ASM-Vegas put out the door are far worse offenses than a few split spots.

JMHO, YMMV, 2¢

What happened with the auction? My ebay says that the auction is over with zero bids.
Looks like he cancelled the bids (or had the bidder cancel) and then ended the listing. Perhaps a deal was struck outside of eBay. Hopefully Bubble got them and at a good price.

I did strike a deal with the seller I think the price was fair it might have been more than the auction would have ended at but I needed it to be shipped before the ending to meet a deadline witch will save me money in the end

Hopefully the seller got stuck with final value fees for the bid(s) that was/were placed for pulling these shenanigans.

No FVF if the bids were pulled or cancelled before ending the listing.

Right - if they were pulled or cancelled. But cancelling the auction with bids is a different story, no?
