Asking $600 $500 or an amazing trade for things I'm in search of for the full display set.

Yeah, I agree, but are these still live in some events?
You know i probably haven't watched the WSOP since maybe 2008 so Im not sure.
I THOUGHT they retired this set and have what 2 or 3 different RH&C sets now but
maybe these are still in use. Im not positive. Id like them to be retired so then they
are more valuable :p

retiring them might make them less valuable!

(i kid, i kid - i have no idea what stakes these may be still used for, nor the relative starting stacks)
We could DREAM I guess that they retire the chips, loose the WSOP and sell sets, but the Rio seems
ANAL to ever let chips loose with bans threatened if you remove a chip. I think myself theyd grind
them all up to powder and destroy them because reasons :(

to be clear, i was talking about bring chips IN (also probably frowned upon).

Oh yah its to prevent people ADDING ON to their stacks for sure too

I think the collector value is WAY BETTER though but who knows what
a couple extra 5K chips could do in a lower buyin tourney later on after
a color up in day 2

They are definitely still live; they were used in Daily Deepstacks for years and then several years ago (when the Monster stack started, whatever year that was) they started using these original Rio Bud Jones chips for events with larger than normal starting stacks for the price points, shifting one of the other secondary Bud Jones sets into the deepstacks.

Last year there were several events in which they were used - Big 50, Millionaire Maker, Monster stack off the top of my head, and definitely several others. And not to be Debbie Downer, but in theory, if anyone from Caesar's found out, you (or the buyer) could get banned from Caesar's/WSOP events...

MEH, I didnt take it and no proof of who did.
So crazy story from back in the days of CT. I forget who it was, maybe TonyPap but someone went into the 1K or 1500 buying
tournament early. Somehow he pulled off grabbing his whole stack before the tournament started and just walked out. All my
messages there are lost so cant remember exactly who told me that if he can confirm the story.

Few others up on ebay and have sold so people arent too scared I guess.

I hate bud jones chips. Like, I loath them. But this is the very coolest sample set I've ever seen for sale here.
HAHA, thanks man. Im not a HUGE fan of the BJ chips either, REALLY dont like the Binions BJ set all that much,
and never got to play with these in person, the one I played was the more common TH&C set but yah, they are
kinda cool and the colors are nice. There is a second color 5K too that is a REALLY pretty purple. If you had a
10K & 25k chip Id say then the coolest, but I feel the Binion TH&C WSOP sample was better. This one is up there
though with my favorites.

Exactly. Like, I don't know if it will sell for that price, but they're so rare, its not a crazy ask. We've all watched these chips played for years. But to get one, You've got to risk the WSOP for the rest of your life by stealing it. So yeah, they're rare.
I just want back what I paid for most of this. Just got the 5K chip but I like the Dunes Dime rack more.
The set deserves to stay together so I wont split it up.

$250/$100/$90/35/25/ + $100 for the cards
