Joined the forum last month. Was trying to decide on China Clay set, or CPC rounders, or make my own custom star wars set. Wanted a tournament set, so like T25-T5000 chips.
Saw some of the prices for Dunes and Majestics on the classifieds and figured I should just pick something cheap up to wet my whistle. Just have to play the waiting game...

And then some Jack Detroit $25 and $100 were posted, and now I'm awaiting shipment.
Detroit is in my backyard, so I had to do it. Going to have to build a set around them.

The Jack rabbit hole is a pretty deep one, I wish you luck on your quest. I'm 1100 chips deep into mine :ROFL: :ROFLMAO:

Hey @jeff123 . I'm from Michigan, so even though they are a little plain I like the Jack Detroit label. Probably just keep them.
I'll do a custom label on a different chip if I ever make the custom Star Wars set.

Star Wars should be custom Matsui CIC, or octagonal ceramics :)

Welcome, @Gene.

Detroit is in my backyard

You joined too late. I just shipped the last of my Jack's sample chips (that wouldn't break up my complete sample set) to a fellow Michigander, because everyone from the area should have at least one.

Sounds like you've got more than one coming, though, so you should be good.

Welcome to PCF!

I've only very recently gotten on board here too, and went from 0 knowledge to waiting on my first set of china clays from a member here.

I am simultaneously excited and afraid of where this might be going xD

Welcome! Jack's are very popular around here and with a little patience you should be able to build an awesome set! Enjoy the forum, and best wishes on your chipping journey!

Hi Gene, I'm Steve, I like kitty cats, heavy metal, and cool looking poker chips and I guess I'm an addict because I currently will be in possession of five playable sets. oh and women younger than me.

Always a treat when Milton Delugg and the band with a thud busted into a Jumpin at The Woodside. ( legend envisions Millennials hopping on you tube to see wtf he’s talking about)

Welcome, I'm not too far from you. I'm in Canton, MI. Good luck with the Jacks!

I have a Paulson Classics set, waiting on a Rounders set from CPC, and also have mocked up a custom set from CPC with the Michigan logo on it with a Maize and Blue theme..... just need to scrape up about $5k in spare change to place the order...... lol
