Howdy,
I’m not “new” here but I’m pretty new. However, I still can’t even post on the classified because they won’t let me until I’ve earned my keep.

I think I’ve figured this world out though.
I’m putting together my first set. 1000 chips for cash games at my house. It was going to be an HSI primary and secondary set (mixed) because secondary has nicer $25s and $5s... and $1s. I guess secondary is better looking all around. But regardless, I bought some primary $1s to start. 3 racks. Never felted. Then saw Jack’s showing up all over the place. I finally figured out how to get ahold of Jim from The Chip Room (his site has been down) and he said he had $25s and $100s and some higher denominations. So I purchased 3 racks of $25s and 1.5 racks of $100s. I’m missing $5s. I’m sitting here with 3 racks of HSI mint primary 1s. And Jack Cincinnati secondary $25s and $100s. Which $5s should I get?? Money isn’t really an issue so looking at having a mixed set I see all these awesome chips. Bellagios, and the 1s from the worlds resort casino. (Love those). I’m losing my mind. Thanks everybody for making me love poker chips more than I thought was possible. I hate you all.

if anyone wants to help me finish my set here that’d be great. I need 5s. I’ll take Jack’s. I also want to swap my 1s for prettier 1s like those Words Resort 1s (I found two racks I need one more)....but then of course I still need 5s. I’d also be totally happy with a nice Jack’s secondary set....which would be complete with 3 racks of 1s and 3 racks of $5s...
Ok enough with the rant. Thank you to you all. This is fun.

Hello and welcome (to posting)!

You'll just need to get your post count up. There are always people looking for their opinions on their custom designs in the appropriate thread.

i've really been sucked into this in a bad way, i mean i always hated shitty chips but my obsession is now way out of proportion and i don't even wanna say how much i've spent thru PCF. however - i do actually host games up to 5-10 that require 15-25k on the table occasionally and for that, i need a solid workhorse set. I have a massive HSI pri set for this reason, and am not going to worry about the fact that these are not going to be sold minty ever again. similarly i got a friend a large HSI sec via PCF as well and he LOVES them. it's like he'd never tasted a pizza before and can't get enough now.

have you seen the horseshoe cincis available from the chip exchange?

it looks like they have uncirculated 5s and the 100 pri and sec are actually really cool (i have two racks of sec lol)

If the links work, it's still in stock. I actually ordered from them last week

I just wrote them!! They’d be good for my $5s and I like those 1s better than the HSIs. Thanks
