Maybe they don't like it here. I'm sure he or she knows about this place though.
You don't just have random racks of these two sets lying around in this condition. I bet this person has a heck of a collection. I bet old school and does not want to deal with PCF. I posted a "Not Mine" a few months ago where the guy was selling mint CDI's on Ebay and @horseshoez knew who he was, called him and bought them all. @horseshoez said the seller was old school and didn't want to deal with the hassle of selling on PCF or something like that.

Yeah, because then so many people here light up their inbox inquiring about other chips, offering more money trying to fuck over others. Sometimes it's worth the loss to maybe not have to deal with the bullshit this place has a tendency to have. Just a guess, but it's educated.

Always guys out there like that. That one with the CDI’s however has yet to let me complete the transaction and buy them. He was trying to get me to provide more information on GPI and ordering chips prior to letting me have them. I tried explaining to him that I’m not the GPI Encyclopedia and I only know what I know. He’s being stubborn and insists that he can convince them to remake 98 CDI’s all over again.

Don’t ask my why lol I just know he’s a disabled veteran and I try to be as patient as possible with him.

I talked to him on ebay. He's joined as of today and working with Tommy to get his account working to post in classifieds.
actually been a member / lurker for a while. i kind of got out of chipping right before PCF became a thing. have popped in from time to time and seen amazing group buys and such. glad to see there is still a community that cares about this stuff.

lol, yeah it was a lot quicker than i expected. i wasn't even sure the palais would sell at all, but i did expect a hundred offers
Welcome to PCF! Glad @Skagglio reached out and convinced you to join or at least stop lurking!

We are a little crazy here, especially when nice chips and full racks that get listed on Ebay. Hopefully you didn't get bombarded with two many messages last night!

Were you on chiptalk before PCF? Also, we would love to see some pictures of your collection! (even in your not selling) I am guessing you may have some things that we don't get to see everyday around here.

it's all good. had a couple of conversations about the old days :) lots of "tell me all the sets you have" requests. no stranger to it but it's just been years since i've focused on chips, other than small home games and people being blown away by my "real" chipsets.

now, re-doing my home office and it's time to let some of my collection go. share the wealth for someone who'll enjoy it more right now.

yep - you were right above. joined CT the first year, hit the Pharoah group buy hard with a cash set and a tournament set and never looked back. 5 years later had 14 sets and countless one-off racks and projects etc. etc. Now down to 8 sets, I think. Maybe 9.
