So maybe it’s just a question of taste?
Maybe. Probably just this though:

I hadn't seen this thread when I posted in the sales thread like an hour later, lol. Just seeing it now. I didn't understand either but Krish provided an explanation.

I think the sole answer is people have a man crush on Krish. When they watch him on tv they wanna be able to say “ I got chips out of that man’s private collection!!!” Sips coffee, smells chips, takes a bite of toast. The person that bought 4 sets 100% has a screen printed shower curtain with Krish face on it but hey if it’s ya thing it’s ya thing.

If you or I could sell 700 chips for $15,000 in 1 week to the nicest group of well funded pay pal ready individuals on the Internet at the cost of 100 stamps/padded envelopes, so would we!!!

Going back to the weed thread now…..

Some of us like samples. I’m not interested in owning a Brazillion sets, although I do add sets from time to time. The Set in question is a great one and I’m willing to pay a premium especially because I know I will never own rack quantities. Other people make different value judgements and that’s fine. I’m not in this hobby to make a buck.

It’s not only this set. Many sets that people are paying premium prices for are way more than what reasonable prices should be. I know yada yada market decides b s - stupid is as stupid does.

I think the seller responded pretty reasonably about the price that was set. It makes sense.

He's the only one with the vast majority of them and he has a price in mind that would motivate him to break a few racks off the collection.

It's really not any different than any of the other sales threads where people are looking for their market price.

People are looking to maximize profit on chips from TCR sales from casinos in Indiana, Ohio, and other unremarkable places.

Everyone has a price. Everyone is a flipper.

As one the great poets in modern civilization noted, It's a material world, and we're all material girls.

My sincere apologies to the droves of members offended by my previous gif of Donald Trump showing his drawing of a cat, misspelled as "kat." It's incredibly clear to me now that this belongs in the politics forum since it's such an obvious political statement. I'll shamefully go repent.

No clue what the appeal is of the giraffes, BTP and Chicken coop chips. A few nice color/edge spot combinations among those sets but the themes and inlays are all blah or worse.

But, to each their own and people are soon parted with their money, etc.
I just murder them. They have nice color/edge spots that fit into another set of mine really well.

I think this is very, very common with those chips.
yeah, I mean, I think that's basically what almost everyone uses them for. I would probably keep the giraffes as is cause I think the inlays are ridiculous and fun and silly, but I also wouldn't pay that amount for them. But the chickens, oh boy did I murder some of them boys!

A good weed strain helps bend the fabric of time.

He probably blazed an ounce while he was posting. To him, it may have felt like it took 10 years to post that response. I trust him. There's wisdom in his words.

I think I can, right? And I’m not bashing the seller.
I’m actually laughing out loud at this. Why on earth are people paying over twenty bucks a chip for these things? They’re not from some legendary Vegas casino. They have absolutely no history at all. Yes, they have nice colors, but if this is about aesthetics, we have to take into account the inlay, which most people think is hideous. (I actually love the inlay, FWIW.)

I guess it’s because I’m not a singles collector or a sample set collector that I just don’t get it. These chips are only popular because they’re popular. Like, they’re the Kardassians of the poker chip world. They just showed up on eBay one day and everybody wanted a piece because they were new and pretty. And so people bought them and flipped them and flipped them and so now they’re instantly and forever legendary just because nobody can have them? It’s insanity.

And the quotes I’m seeing. How are these not selling out when people are overpaying for the latest chiproom junk? Well, I can play poker with my friends with the chiproom junk - what the heck can anybody do with these? And at this price, I’m in for two? If I start handing out kicks in the balls for half price, how many can I put you down for?

And there are multiple confidential buyers! CONFIDENTIAL BUYERS? What the hell is going on here? Unless your wife reads this site and you’re hiding them from her, what the hell? This entire place has gone freaking nuts!
I also got a laugh out of confidential buyer haha and (buyer pays shipping ) on a $8000 set of chips haha

Seems like the majority of PCF agrees with OP. Price dropped a few times and only ~30 people expressed interest before the ad was cancelled.

A vocal minority hype these chips but the majority DGAF.

Not sure if its that people DGAF, more like price point. Snap buy for me at the right price, which for me would be around $60, possibly $65. Maybe more if there wasn't 100 being released.

The giraffes are pending cook, chem pull separation, and evap bath.

They’re literally just colored cocaine waiting to be separated…. It’s a cartel set.

Doy!
