Read my previous wanted ads, read my tagline, or just read my lips. I WANT YOUR CUSTOM SAMPLES. I also want others'.

I started in this game late, and it's cost me. Hopefully I've put enough in, or been active enough, or helped out enough chippers that this will get some nudges or messages.

**I understand that some of these are going to be sets where only solid chippers got samples back in the day, and they'll never be sold or moved on. That's the way it should be. Still gonna list, never know when an owner finds a second sample at the bottom of a closet when moving**

This is about 1/25th of the samples I have written down, I'll work on this, edit and update.

To start, this is part of my Samples Most Wanted List (couple more to be added, pictures to be added later, as well as why they're on my Most Wanted):

Bel Air - @Mr Hanky
Really want to have a display for my Euro chipper customs. Thought this would be a great place to start my search.

Bill's Haus of Bluff - @Chippy McChiperson
Simple for me, I love this color/design/theme, easy HoF.
1584312595424.png

Black Sands - @ACE'S FULL
I love how much has been done with this design, I'd love to pick up a couple that have been done, and would love to start with these.
1584312695092.png

The Breezeway - @btbmason
Met my wife while living in Indiana, Franfort was right there for years. One of the only customs I've seen in/from Indy, very cool!
(Just missing the 1)

Chateau de Noix - @bivey
I mean, this is just awesome. Each set is fantastic, and it's gotta be a top theme for anybody. Can't wait to attend this meetup one year soon.
1584312972846.png

Coconut Club - @mipevi
Again, wanted to grab some Euro samples, and on top of that these trees as well. Think it's a great use of a mold I don't see, and from starting to try to do my own customs, realized quickly my favorite thing is color matching labels.
1584315233131.png

The Condor Club - @ssanel54
I need a better picture of these if anyone has a link.
The Hitching Post - @Mr Tree
Pretty ubiquitous. Don't know that I need to say more. Have the HS set only so far. Have heard stories about Mr Tree as a host, threads look amazing.
1584315355934.png

Kings Club - @Jeff
Another ubiquitous set. I don't even know if samples were ever made, but gotta throw this up there. Super stoked to have a copy of the Everleighs.
1584315699794.png

Suicide King Club - @courage
Not an owned sample yet from courage and thats a problem! I love how much has been done with suicide king/queen between various creators.
1584315952627.png

Zombie Poker Room - @Poker Zombie
Well, I don't even know what to say. I'm trying to be very upfront, but I still think this makes top something for concept. And then everything turned out so well. And they're made by the Zombies! lol easy no brainer.
1584316104557.png

Donkwoods - @manamongkids
I didn't know what a donk was a year ago. The simple fun design, on amazing fricken colors, I love it. Loved the donkey sanctuary. These are a must.
1584316353531.png

Fat Tire Poker - @Trihonda
Don't have any of the versions. Love the posts and the regular game, awesome to create an entire room/vibe around the theme. Chips look amazing, table looks amazing, etc. Lol there's also few chips that would remotely entertain my wife, but Fat Tire was her thing our pre kid life. Necessito.
1584316468291.png

Harlequin @HQ
Everyone talks about half/quarter/eighth pies. I think I enjoy them, but I love using the like colors here. On top of that, if I do a pure top 10 sets all time for me, I'm noticing a trend. I love the bright, fun, colorful inlays and designs.
(just missing frac now)
1584316676188.png

Knollwoods - @72o
Again, colorful, fun, fantastic. Easy HoF, and it was made by a fellow sample appreciator!
1584316824233.png

Motswari Lodge - @Perthmike
I'd have a hard time moving this out of my top 3, maybe? This for me is what Rosie's Bayou is for most (which I still love! but most people have that as one of their absolute top untouchables). This is the one where I love the theme, the colors, chips, story behind it, color matching, gradient, and differing images, not a damn thing missing.

1584316924592.png

The Music Shack - @chipjoker
Similar situation to the Motswaris, awesome story behind these and such a great job done building it all around the set, especially with including the plaque/high hand/dealer.

I also don't really razz or PM folks, just wanted to put this up just in case, you never know what shakes out. Lol plus if anyone ever let's go like the great Puggy sale of 2016 or Krafty sale of 2019, wouldn't hurt to have had the Wanted post going.

A quick thank you below to folks who have assisted in this endeavor, this literally can't be done without help from the community (also a work in progress, don't feel unappreciated if your name doesn't appear yet!):

I appreciate the shout-out, IIRC the only full Coconut Club cash sample sets are with @Jeff and @toad94 (a few low denom singles given as gifts might be stashed away somewhere). Unfortunately I have only 3 extras of some of those chips left so can't really let any more go...

To make up for it, I could probably hook you up with the original Music Shack line-up with plaque, unless @chipjoker needs them back. :)

I am flattered that Zombie chips have made your list.

Unfortunately, I believe that all complete sample sets of the CPC Zombie Poker Club chips (aka the Zombie Foodies) have been accounted for. Mainly, in certain circumstances, I need every T25 I have. This has happened twice. T100-T25,000 I could provide, but you'd be missing the cheese-chip.

The Zombie World Edition plaques are free to any chipper that puts us up for the night as we travel the world, but not a lot of people collect plaques, and I'm not going to force them on anyone.

China clay chips are bought without extras and without overruns, though Gear always ships a few extra labels. If you get me the appropriate chips, I can label them for you. You'd pay shipping only.

The Aviation Club de Zombie chips are cheap plastic, metal-slugged chips with aa ACF inspired label. The chips are designed to be able to be lost, and I bought extra labels to be safe. I could let limited samples of those go, but cheap chips rule out most collectors.

@BarrieJ3 do you have a sample of the Club Courage mixed casino vintage Vegas homage chips? Amazing set. Probably my favorite custom CPCs.

Unsure if there are many if any samples available but worth enquiring!

Thank you @mipevi and @chipjoker ! Very kind of you to offer, even checking with original creator first, never thought one of these would get crossed off the list so soon! @Poker Zombie, looks like I need to start working on a 2021 meetup, your room will be ready! And cheap vs. expensive or rare or whatever isn't necessarily the point of my collection, I'll have a display dedicated to even just the 10 cent a chip 8V CCs, because I'll have a set and because I think it's cool to see how people can take the exact same instrument and produce different results.

Updated the OP with a couple of notes. I'm really going after chips that I enjoy, and usually fall into similar categories. I'm amazed to already have some responses, and will be working on updating the thread, as well as crossing out what I'm able to fulfill.

Updates coming soon! Thank you to those involved, it’s great to be able to get a little jump on these. Definitely didn’t think I’d be able to cross one of the list soon, let alone three or four!!!

These are awesome, sadly don’t have em. Really don’t have many from before my time.

Idk if these guys played together or whatnot (again before my time) and not sure how my search will go, but I’m definitely gonna work on a display with chippy mcchipperson, courage, jbutler, and bergs chips. They look amazing, and just seem to flow together real well.

I am going to try and do an update by the end of this weekend. Shit has gotten somewhat crazy here, not getting packages, our banks shut down, etc.

Anyways, always looking for custom samples! Got some karma saved up, the most badass giveaway I've seen https://www.pokerchipforum.com/threads/good-people-yuuuuuge-giveaway.55550/, getting chips into the community https://www.pokerchipforum.com/threads/thc-solids.55716/, and the normal day to day help.

New chippers, old chippers. So many custom samples back from blue wall, so many new ones coming to life, HIT ME UP!

I like you. I can give you one on the top list. You have to take it for free, but you might have to wait a bit before I can get to the P.O.

Man I can’t believe how quickly that top list has been flushed out! I appreciate you Krafty, and I’m in no rush! :) (Where’s the heart emoji!?)
