This is a LOT of poker chips.

In case you want to run a freakin casino night rental company this pile of plastic chips might be for you.

That looks like pallets of ammo that the Dice Chip Gang uses against us, real Chippers!

How much for just the racks?

Then how much to fill them with real chips?

Then how much to for a good therapist?

Those racks are too nice for cheap plastic chips. If I was in the area I would inquire some more

Sitting on concrete net to an outside air vent. Looks like mold growing on some of them already. It's almost impossible to get that mildew/musty smell out of wood too.

I would just be really curious to know why in the world the person has that many chips. I mean, I know some of you have some serious collections but that's tens of thousands of plastic chips.

Most likely ran (or tried to run) a casino-night type company.

Could we be quiet and just let me fantasize that these are pre GPI Paulson TH&C starbursts.

Ah, done. You may continue.

^^^ This x 1000. Those racks plus the color variation on the chips plus the general lack of knowledge (or give a rip) that most people have about chips makes me curious enough to check them out or ask for more info.

The color variation is what made me tilt my head and say Plastic? really? are you sure?

I'd ask for a pic of the face of the chips.

That's what got my attention also. I asked them to send me a pic of the faces. They are in a storage unit and that they would send me a pic this weekend.

The listing is gone, just as I found out I need enough for a small (7000 person) convention. :(

If you see this again in the near future let us know!

I just made an offer for the whole lot. Don't shame me. Mrs. Poker Zombie said "buy them all", so I might if he takes a swing at serious low-ball.

Re-listings are awesome.
