I'm sorry you don't like the S2 series. But maybe you'd like to reconsider, since the vast majority of these are unplayed, only handled and stored.
Don’t get me wrong, I’m not bashing these chips at all and I had to restrain myself multiple times to not snap buy!

I may eventually cave and get a set. I only play T2K tourneys with T5 base so they’re a perfect configuration:tup:

I have to say, it's not often that you're going to see plastic chips of this quality at a lower price than a custom ceramic, and at only a little higher price than brand new China Clays.

Do you know if the T1000 labels will be identical or will it be like “Jack Detroit Casino” to “Jack Detroit Cardroom”

I see no reason that @Gear (or someone else) couldn't make them just about identical to the original inlay. The casino in question, though real, never operated, and I think all the companies involved are bankrupt/dissolved.

You don't even have to relabel them, if you don't want to, if you're not going to be using these chips for cash.

For all the non-US based chippers out there, remember that the prices quoted are INCLUSIVE of Priority shipping from the USA directly to you! Now, you'll still need to be responsible for any taxes, customs fees, duties, etc. that your jurisdiction may enforce, but because of the low average cost per chip it will still make the Set offerings an especially good deal! Give yourself the Christmas gift (or even a no-reason gift!) of minty Bud Jones chips that you deserve! :tup:

In the interests of full disclosure, we have amended the OP slightly to address an issue regarding some of the $1 chips. It seems like a portion of them were not stored as well, and there is some environmental exposure. While they remain in excellent condition overall, some have some edge blemishes and may require cleaning to get them into their best-looking shape. They remain minimally handled and not publicly played.

As you're receiving your chips please be aware of the fine threads attached to a few of the chips are not animal hairs but are in fact part of the labeling process of new S2 chips. This verifies their unused status. Also some chips may need minor cleaning due to storage procedures and not from use.

Also all orders paid to this point will be good to go as I personally verified each rack.

Really? I thought that this phenomenon was a hallmark of Bud Jones chjps, especially the S2 series.
I'm glad your samples arrived and are in good order. Now I'm patiently awaiting your forthcoming multiple set order! :tup:
Yah zero suction cup on any of them. Might be something that happens after extended use.

I wish. Holiday funds are low, but ya, these are unlike any S2 or V7 I have ever handled. They are more of a matte/ceramic feel than the typical shiny/sticky bud jones chips. Very nice and hope to own a set one day.
