Howdy All,

I been buying and collecting poker chips going on 20 years now. It all started when a family member gave me a $1 chip from the Showboat Casino in Atlantic City many years ago. I've bought and sold many sets over the years. I've only had 4 sets of poker chips at any one time, which is a drop in the bucket to some that I know.

Currently, I own a set of the Paulson Vineyards (which I may finally part with soon) and just recently acquired a set of Terrible's St. Jo Primaries. I am working on remodeling my man cave and building a new poker table.

I look forward to meeting some new people and seeing some old friends too! :cool:

Hey Tommy!!! If/when you go to sell those Vineyards keep me in mind!!!! :rolleyes:

I'm a lifetime supporter on one the other sites and will continue to support that site, but see no conflict with joining your site too! I caught the chip bug about a year ago and since have purchased many, many, many, too many, tournament sets... I also have two cash sets. My wife thinks I'm crazy, and it's probably true... I'm expecting a set of Proteges (to be delivered tomorrow!!!).

I got your PM, if I do I'll let you know. I got them when they were first available at a good price so I will be reasonable if and when I sell them. I would say ask frenchipper about his Paulson Vineyards but he said he acquired them recently so he is probably not going to part with them any time soon. They are a great looking grand inlay chip for sure!

Thanks for checking out the site!

No prob. I have one rack of $10's. I only bought them to have at least 100 of each denom. (same for the $2s and $3s) All this interest is wanting me to just keep them as they are my favorite grand inlay Paulson. lol :) They been on the shelf in the white boxes for about 5 years now too. :cool:

I will if I can get to them. I am in the middle of remodeling the basement so all of my furniture, electronics, desk, etc is crammed into the unfinished side of my basement. BTW, I did see some $500's up on eBay a few weeks ago. The seller had 10 available.

Envy! The story about how there was only one rack of Paulson Vineyard $500 chips know to exist seems hard for me to believe still to this day. Then again, if the gaming board required secondaries, these may have been just samples after all. Who knows!
