I'd be very surprised to find mint Flamingos now but best of luck!
sidebar: mine have become quite dirty from heavy use at my home game so will be cleaning them soon with my new ultrasonic.
Have you tried thechipboard.com ? Someone over there might be able to help you out.
Thanks Chris. I've been lucky enough to score a little over a rack so far, and am hoping to hit a full two racks total if possible. So you own and use Flamingos in your home game? Sweet! Which version(s)?
OK. So I now officially hate you. They look like they might have been close to mint when you got them, too. Yup... hate. And they go SO great with those pink Casa $5s. <sigh>Part of my fav mixed Paulson set. 450 spotted birds. I got a rack off eBay quite a while ago, gradually added, then HQ harvested 250 out of Flamingo for me. He had half the room working for him and the floor set up a table near the cage. I'm not sure how much of a dent that made.
Wow, Dave, thanks so much! If my current crack dealer, er... chip dealer doesn't come through, I'll definitely give you a shout. And hey, love your new Avatar avatar! (Is that a redundant singular metaphor, or just a foreshadowing of symbolism?)ski, I have Silver Palace $5's (all mint) and Aztar $25's (all mint or near-mint). PM me if you haven't acquired yours yet.
First Courage, now you... Clearly, I'm *seriously* late to the "build a mixed cash set of Paulson H&C chips using Flamingos as the $1s" party. Why didn't anyone tell me?! That's a gorgeous set you have! It must be nearly impossible to get any of those... what are they... Condado $500 chips? (BTW, I tried to "like" your post for sharing the enviable chip pr0n, but got an odd error message.)I absolutely love the Flamingo chip and unfortunately will never part with any...sorry. Yeah the casino only used this version for less than a year IIRC probably due to chip harvesting no doubt. Courage has me beat in quantity as I only have 230 of 'em. But I too grabbed them off ebay a little at a time and snagged 100 mint off Apache Josh and also had cdnmoose harvest some from the casino. Try reaching out to realvegaschips on ebay. It's a longshot but he was extremely nice and had decent quantities back when I was looking. Good luck with the search. But anyway just to give a shot at my mixed set using these for reference:
SURE you are. I'm betting you have a "friend" who just HAPPENS to have some Aztar C hundos. For a price.Ski, looking at 72o's photo, it appears you'll need some Aztar hundos. <just kidding>
Wow, thanks so much for the offer! If you come across any of the spotted birds in near mint condition, yes please. I'm guessing it's very doubtful that any remain in great condition, but you never know. Heck, I could even go for some of the unspotted birds if they were in mint condition. Let me know what you see.I'm in Vegas right now. Do you want me to get you some used ones?
Ski, thanks so much. Haha I was hooked when I ordered a single one of these Flamingos off ebay a couple of years ago. But I thought the same thing as you at that time...that it would be impossible to find any of these in quantity and in decent shape. I just kept emailing any ebay seller that had a single chip for sale and asking if they had any decent quantities and got lucky. You could try to beg OVO who also has some (I've tried but to no avail). :...First Courage, now you...

I found 19 fairly good ones including 3 spotted which are older and a little more worn. Plus I think I have a few mint ones at home
$1.15 ea. Do you want them? I fly out tmr morning so need to know asap.
