Just wondering if anyone has info on the Deadwood chips. Were they readily available when TRK was still in business? Where are they now? (Sounds like a VH1 show) :cool:

I think it started in 2005 when Josh (Apache) teamed with Johnny5 on this historic set. The entire run was around 23,000 chips.

I know a couple of people have/had some huge collections of these over on the blue wall. I think one set came up for sale around a year ago and I believe the price was pretty fair IIRC.

I own about 1100 tournament set. I just wish I hosted more tournaments to get them in play more often. There a are a few others who have decent size sets, and I think a bunch of them were recently shipped off to Australia. I am still on the lookout for High Denoms (mainly $1000s) if anyone is listening. The chips are amazing in all facets, design, colors, feel etc. TRK rules.

Probably my biggest chip regret, not getting a huge tournament set of Deadwood chips when they were still available. Like a true uneducated noob, the slightly smaller diameter was the deciding factor for me at the time... closely followed by some non-standard color issues.

By the time I figured it out, TRK was gone, and the price of these was through the roof (if you could find them for sale at all).

Indeed they did;) 1200+ which have been in the weekly game rotation since they arrived. Great chips which now make me want more TRK's!

Thanks for the pics. B.C. Awesome set. I remember Josh having them on his website for sale but by the time I realized what a decent chip was, it was too late and he only had a couple denoms left in stock.

I sold my set of 2k+ mint Deadwoods two years ago. Fantastic chips, but I never had the opportunity to put them into play.

Exactly 25,000 of these were made:
50 cent - 1100
$1 - 2400
$5 - 4000
$10 - 1400
$25 - 5400
$100 - 4300
$500 - 2400
$1000 - 1200
$5000 - 800
$25000 - 900

These were probably mine. I sold a >700 set for way less than I should have. They were chalky mint new and excellent breakdown. Biggest regret ever~!

I have 500 of them. I bought them directly from Josh when he only had 5s, 25s and hundos left.
I love 'em, but my PNY's and King's Crowns get all the play.

I love TRKs!!
