After bouncing back and forth between about a dozen different ideas for what to do for my cash set, I've finally made a decision. As many of you are probably aware, there was a (now closed) casino in Reno name Harold's Club:

My gambling enthusiast grandfather was also named Harold. My first trip to Las Vegas was a celebration of my 21st birthday and his 80th. I decided that I would like to make a set that honors him and will bear his image much like Harold's Club Reno chips had the images of Harold Smith and his family. In terms of colors, I'm going for something that represents the bright neon lights of "Old School Vegas." Initially, I was fretting about following some type of traditional color scheme and ensuring "proper" edge progression, but I eventually decided that I just wanted to go with chips that I liked regardless of standard conventions. Here is my current lineup (.25, .50, 1, 5, 25):

Currently, I'm in the final stages of accumulating the chips (if you have more CI Co 500s or Paulson Fantasy Purples, I'm your man), and I'm setting up the artwork. Once I've got all of the chips I'll turn to paying someone to get the milling done, and then I'll move onto the labels. I'll likely add more denoms in the future, so if you have any suggestions for chips that would work with the set, please post them here.

I'll post updates/progress pics here as I get them.

UPDATE: Some new variations

I dig it! And I think purple is in the same family (if even distant family) of red so I think it works. I’m using a fuchsia 5 in one of my sets and still consider it standard

A few drafts of each side of the potential inlay from J5. We're experimenting with different photos, fonts, inlay colors, etc....Any and all feedback is appreciated.

The dark shirt gives better contrast.

Love it! Talk about the neon glow of old Vegas!

This is a winner!

Ok, so here are the first inlay drafts I got from J5:

Based off of my feedback, he gave me examples of some other options:

hc_set_back1b (1).jpg


hc_set_front1a.jpg

Any feedback/preferences are appreciated! I'm planning on doing two-sided, with one side having my grandfather's picture (I like the color matching shirt) and the other side will be one variation of the neon sign.

I dig this one if you want one of each. If grandfathers photo then I'd do that one both sides myself. Or rework the neon sign side to still give off the same vibe with a white background.

Here's another variation, color matching shirts on one side, and black background on the other side:

First off, love this design. The colors are awesome.
As a fan of color, I would suggest the following combo:

Maybe go with black denoms on the text side to match the denoms on the picture side? I actually think it works either way.

Honestly though, I think you can't really go wrong. All of them look good.
