Thanks, ovo! Because I'd really love to win these... (I sat out on the Vineyard, and plan to sit out on any giveaway I don't really want, to help anyone who's really into the item.)

And thanks again, Tommy, and donators!

Wish I had enough posts to be entered in these. I also wished I got a sample of these back when the group buy happened.

There will be another giveaway for a set of these. Not sure when. I plan to have at least one giveaway per month.

Just curious, are these available to like, you know, buy?

I think some are for sale in the classifieds.

Give yourself and the other members a pat on the back too. :cool:

Sure, f you wanted to:

1. order enough to meet Matsui's minimum order requirement
2. get permission from the artwork owner (probably Josh and/or J5, maybe links_slayer)
3. pay incredibly-high shipping costs to get them stateside

These Matsui group buy tournament chips were available in five or six denominations (25, 100, 500, 1000, 5000, dunno about a 5 chip). All of the chip denominations could be ordered in either 39mm or 44mm. The colors, edge-spots, and label designs were all fixed/standardized, but all chips could be ordered with or without a glitter circle and glitter label highlights (for a total of four variations of each denomination chip).

You can probably get additional info from links_slayer, who ran the group buy (for Josh, I think).

I remember when the original group buy happened I just wondered if this signaled another go at it. I think I figured out that this is just some kind/crazy soul offering up a sample set to the good folks hereabouts rather than a new GB.

Somewhere I have a sample set from what I think was one of the first Matsui GBs:

I normally don't care for plastic chips, but Matsui is really it's own beast.

I think many (most, even) Matsui chips are simply gorgeous, and the WSOP tribute GB chips were no exception. I never even put my set into play before selling it; was bad enough just trying to keep stacks of twenty chips together long enough to get 'em into a rack. Slippery as snot, and so disappointing.

I did keep a sample set (I think).
