Looking to buy or trade for some Blue Chip Casino .25 chips.



A full rack would be nice. Two racks even better. :cool:

These are outstanding chips. The two racks I once owned are #2 on my Seller's Remorse List. Good luck in your search. I've found that people don't generally want to get rid of these but when they do they'll make you pay for them :)

I really hope my buddy is successful in getting some of these. I've been wanting a blue RHC Paulson chip for a long time now. If not I'm flying out to Vegas and I'll have to get some racks of blue 1's lol.

He's going to need either a) a boatload of cash (don't expect to be able to walk to the cage and ask for a couple racks at face value) or b) have some super smooth talking skills....and likely a combination of both.

I wouldn't hold my breath if I were you but I genuinely hope it works out for you! It can take many, many, MANY trips - harvesting a handful at a time - to complete a rack of casino fracs, let alone two racks.

I was able to score a rack of these not too long ago. Paid about 7 times the face. I actually put Terrible 25 cent labels on them. :cool:
Finding another 100 seems to be impossible. I may have to resort to getting $1 chips from Vegas. I am still hoping Mr. Cheese can pull through!

Yeah I told him he'd probably need to get a rack of 5's and ask for 1 rack of .25's. If they ask why about the quarters say he want's to bet 5.50 at blackjack. Idk we'll see what happens. He's not a gambler so it'll be interesting to see if he's successful.

There's no way that will fly (IMO). Like I said, it's extremely unlikely that he'll be able to get even a rack at the cage. The casinos aren't stupid. They pay ~3x face value for quarters. So you can understand why they keep close tabs on them and don't like them walking out the door. They don't want to take a ~50c loss on each chip that wanders of since the person taking them only paid 25c each. Again, I know I'm probably sounding like a Debbie Downer and I really hope this works out for you. But you can't honestly think that you're the first person to come up with a "clever" plan to get these chips in this quantity. lol

How many do you think have been taken out by just the chippers you know of? What do you think the going rate on a rack of them if some came available?

No idea on how many have made their way out and I don't know how you would ever find that out. Going rate seems to be anywhere from $175-$250+ for a rack. Obv depending on how motivated the buyer/seller are. JMHO.

They are great looking chips, I am hesitant to put my labels on them because I am using them as 25 cent chips anyway.

I think I am going to hold off to see if I can find some $1 chips from vegas that may be easier to get. I have a friend that lives there so I will see if he can get me some.
