I came across these in a local craigslist ad. I'm also just diving into eBay as a pt seller. What do you think is the best way to list these chips. Complete set? Stacks? Or by denom? I do see eBay sellers trying to sell single chips with what looks like little success.

I fixed it for you. I'd list it as a set.
Welcome to Poker Chip Forum.

That's a weird breakdown for a game but the chips have a nice design. I'd look at selling sample sets of one of each or just sell it as one piece.

I actually posted a 5 piece sample set $1,$2,$3,$5,$10 earlier this week. Only 1 watcher no bids. It is a weird breakdown I agree.

I would be far far more likely to buy that as a set. Truth is, if the price were more in my range that set would be here in my house waiting to get into play because I have been watching it (and posted one of the auctions here too). See pricing note below.

Selling one chip at a time may someday earn more money but it is slow, slow, slow. Ceramic chips from an unknown California poker room closed almost 30 years just don't have a fan base.

Racks / stacks / barrels are even worse. I can't think of many {any} buyers for that.

So I call it set > singles >>> racks/stacks/barrels.

My take on the value.
Negatives: Unknown California card room (and there are a lot of such rooms). Ceramic chips. Small bank. The $3s and $10s are of little value, it isn't likely they go into play. Getting more chips for the set is going to be hard.

Positives: Close to a one-of-a-kind set.

Other sales: To my shock I found one. 390 $1s and $5s for $99 on june 11th. If I had seen them, the would be here in the poker room. 25 cents per chip, all of which are playable. The larger set is 55 cents per chip and a third of the set is not playable. So I think the problem is not how the chips are broken down but the price.

I never mentioned a price. Did you mean the price of the other auctions? The only eBay ad I have is the sample set and that was based on other single chip auctions. I actually have no idea what the value would be on these.

Those didn't sell, did they? Worth sending the seller a message?

I jumped to a conclusion, perhaps I was wrong.

900 chips from Regency Casino in California. BIN $499.95 offered by Atlanticcoin. I have seen this off and on for a while.

300 - $1. Chips

100 - $3. Chips

200 - $5. Chips

200 - $10. Chips

100 - $25. Chips

http://www.ebay.com/itm/900-Chip-Re...caa3071&pid=100033&rk=2&rkt=4&sd=171901224862

I appreciate this ebay seller has a lot of expertise with chips but might be perplexed about why this set isn't selling.

I am sorry for any confusion -=- DrStrange
