Of course, we all have chips that we love. But what about the sets we wish we never bought?

After my first ASM (CPC) set in 2000, but before I committed to the Empress set in 2014/15, my wife and I decided to host a New Years Eve Casino Night. So I needed a lot of chips in a hurry. I ended up 1500 Nexgen Pro chips. Somehow I also have 1000 Scrolls $25 that are still new in wrappers. And 700 Prestige Pro 727. I ain't proud of it.

What is your biggest regret? What did you do about it? Sell, donate, trade or trash?

Doesn't seem so bad.
I don't serve my good scotch to the public either.

You could move those chips in the classifieds, without too much trouble.
There are plenty of new chippers looking to stay within a budget.

I regret selling my Paulson Classics because I received my stimulus check just days later.
But I did need the money immediately and the combined income enabled me to make more significant chip purchases the week after..
Everything balanced out in the end but, in the moment, I was unhappy with the universe.

Not a huge investment... but before we joined PCF teaching Brie to play poker, we played a version of solitaire I came up with years ago... I used to only have a 500 PC welcome to Vegas set 14 g slugged chips... well with 2 playing "break the bank" it didn't take very long so I started expanding the set... the 25k chips and were no big deal to find but we wanted to keep going up! I found a website Palms International (now owned by Gene with ABC)and they had some of the China Clay CPS chips in 100k. 250k, 500k and 1 million... I bought 100 of each at $.55 shipped per chip... around here they go for $.25 - $.30 a chip... not planning on selling and they did and possibly will serve the purpose again but definitely feel like I over paid for those chips!

Lol I refuse to let their prices fall to that! Anything under .40 I gobble em up. I sell customized breakdown sets at .40, and sold about 1k chips in the last two months, but still sitting on a couple thousand of em. These stupid China Clays will be the set I get buried with, my first set, my loves.

I truly have no issues with the chips, @FordPickup92 even bought an 800 chip cash set for playing at her job. Also honestly I only have 400 chips so I'm only out like $100 either way but still feel like maybe could have saved a few dollars if we had joined and found them here, it's all good

I have no shame in my CPS chipes, they arent caddys but I'd rather them get busted up at work than my good chips.
Honestly the only drawback is they shuffle like sh*t.
But I dont care they do the job. I love mint fresh paulsons but I'd play with casino used or china clays/ceramics all the same. I care more about the cards lol
