That such a mental photo. There looks to be about 10k t25s just visible in that photo.

It's like a chiproom horseshoe or jacks release lol

lol. Nah, there were only about 6-7k ea of the T25s & T100s made.

Quantities for the Paulson WSOP set are approximately:

T1 - 300-500
T5* - 4000+
T25* - 6000+
T100* - 6000+
T500 - 500
T1000 - 1600-2000
T5000 - 300

* Note the T5, T25, & T100 were all reordered in 2003 as an add-on. Higher denoms were not added onto.

I imagine the Lady Luck / Isle $25-500 ($1000) numbers are pretty similar to the Binion’s T25-5000 numbers.

(Not that they are remotely in the same league.)

I hope one day the Rio chips become available like this. I wouldpay whatever it takes. I guess when the wsop moves to somewhere on the strip, there's a chance

Oh, and I have this pretty cool little silver ingot from Binion's to go with my set. It makse for a fun card capper :)

Sorry, just a bit confused about the timeline.
The chip guide says all but the T100 (1999) were issued in 1995. This is odd because the Paulson T500, T1k and T5k had already been phased out by ‘95. Since we know the chips were first put into play in 1987, I’m assuming ‘95 or ‘99 was the first reorder for the T5, T25 & T100. Then another in 2003?

The chip guide says...

Well, here's your first problem... :ROFL: :ROFLMAO:

In all seriousness though, I don't know if they were also reordered in 1995 or not. But the Chip Guide says all of these chips were made in 1995, and states that all of them were in play in 1995 (including the T1k and T5k), so we know it's wrong already. I don't lend that book much credibility.

I agree. Doesn’t the Nevada gaming commission publish a record of each chip order placed by the casino? I thought I remember there being a website.

Ya, that's how we know they were reordered in 2003. But I don't know if we have access to records much further back than that?

You'll find plenty of sellers at $75 ea for the T1000s. Those usually go for about $30. But no one is going to sell you a T500 for $75,or even for $150 for that matter. You probably won't find any T500s or T5000s. Those are unicorns.
