High Seas Casino Custom Ceramic Tournament Chip Set -- Reduced Price

The High Seas Casino (HSC) chips are custom pirate-themed 39mm ceramic chips. I’m selling them because I don’t use them much. This set was designed for multiple uses.
  • Starting with T1 or T5, a single table set up to 10 players.
  • Starting with T25 or T100, up to 40 players.
  • Starting with T500, up to 28 players (using a minimum of 10 T500s) using all the T500 and T5,000 chips.
There are plenty of higher value chips for re-buys. It’s a nice set, but only used 1-2 times a year.

Condition – Excellent (like new), used about 12 times. They show no wear that I can tell. The T1 and T5 chips have not been used in a tournament. They have been used in small numbers to keep score in another game, but only a few of them were needed, and there was nowhere near the use they would have had in a poker tournament.

There are two T500 and T5,000 because under low-light conditions the black, purple, and charcoal are difficult to distinguish in stacks. I can think of two advantages of having two different colors for a chip. One advantage to having both is you can vary the looks of the set – up to 4 options. The second advantage is that it significantly increases the number of T500 and T5,000 chips available if you want to use them all.

Shipping by ground within the USA is included.

Price

Two options:
  • Complete set – 2,123 chips -- $925 ($.436 each) Reduced to $800, now $600 ($.283 each)

A little more background.

They were purchased from Palm Gaming International. After playing 2-3 times with them, I found in low light conditions that the original T500 and T5,000 were difficult to distinguish when stacked. When face up, all the chips are easy to distinguish. The denominations stand out. Then I re-did the T500 and T5,000 chips.

Joe at PGI, has since retired. Joe sold his business to ABC Gifts & Awards. PGI did a great job on the chips. They stack very well – comparable to my best set of China clays. They are the only ceramics I’ve ever played with so I cannot compare them with others by any experience I have.

I reduced the price some after looking at what new sets would cost at the volume I'm selling. I appreciate the private feedback informing me I didn't have some prices accurate, so I re-looked at the websites I could find where you can get fully custom ceramics.

Bump. I'd love some feedback.

Unfortunately, I think you are coming up against the challenge with custom chips. They are designed according to your likes and needs and to sell them, they have to either be broadly appealing, a HOF design, or cheap.

Used casino Chipco's are in the $0.35/chip range, with the ability to occasionally buy new ones for around that level.

Used PGI customs? Likely less.

When I list chips, I start at what I think they are worth and work my way down to my lowest offer that I'd take. If they don't sell at that, I convince myself that I'll use them again in the future and in 6 months, when I haven't touched them, I start the process again, but go lower and lower. If they get too cheap, sometimes I just give them away.

Monkeydog, that is actually a great suggestion. I have looked at the For Sale to see what others are selling for, but not seeing something I think makes a good comparison. You are right, they aren't going to get any more of them, whereas with a standardized set they could.

Here's what I'd definitely say. A real offer won't be outright rejected. Getting something is better than nothing, so I'd consider a reasonable offer.

Bump -- I've reduced the price further -- 25% less.

I'm currently not interested in breaking up this set, except possibly keeping the T1 and T5 chips. I do have plans to use these chips, but because I rarely use them, I'd prefer to sell them. They are my tertiary tournament chips so are only used 1-2 times a year.

I do appreciate the feedback I've gotten both publicly and privately. Those who have responded made some great points. This is my first time to try to sell something on PCF.

Why do you call these “pirate themed” in your title instead of the name of the set?
I buy named custom chip sets for me, I buy “pirate themed” stuff for my small children.
