Hi all,

Been messing around with ideas for another mixed set - this time it'll be with custom labels. Here's what I have planned so far:

Currently been thinking of using these as:

Blurple Starbursts/solids = Fracs
Horsehoe Gardenas = $1
Irish Mikes = $5
Ramadas = $25

How unorthodox are black 5s?

One of the main reasons for this is arrangment is quite simply because I have most of these in decent quantity. If you have a suggestion for chips that would work in terms of colours and/or spot progression, please suggest away!

I would love to hear your thoughts! Also, sell me blurple starbursts please!!!

I know... It's something that is giving me pause as well. I have 4 barrels of these beauties and I would REALLY rather not mill them. That's also partially why I'd love to hear any alternatives/ possible additions to this set!
I will 100% search to the end for a better alternate for you. Lemme think on it

Somewhat unorthodox idea for you.

Label over the Horseshoe chips as $1s then find a red $5 and keep the other chips as is.

frac/Horsehoe/red $5/Ramada hot stamp/Irish Mike $100. A little unusual going from hot stamped $25–>inlaid hundo but you’d get to use the Ramada chip without murder and have a cool Vegas color set

Interesting suggestion. However, I think the lone hotstamped denom chip would drive me insane. If I do use the Ramadas, 100% will mill them. I should probably add that I'm also open to adding 43mm chips into the mix if they would work.

Well if you can find some yellow $5s, what about keeping the Ramada as is to use as a quarter(probably somewhat tilting, I know) and relabel the Mike’s into a $20?

Boom! Instant Cali set

Hmm very interesting. Yellow 5s that are in this minty condition would likely be from the recent GBs.. SB 5s? Spot progression would be nonexistent though.

How unorthodox? Pretty rare I would say but they do exist, the only place I can think of is The Palace in Hayward CA where I've played before. Another unorthodox color of a $5 for me was encountering this green chip for the first time at Casino Real in Manteca CA.

Sure there's the traditional Nevada and Missouri state, n Cali-color schemes but at the end of the day, they r your chips so I say personalize them how you see fit. Awesome chip selection @Balanar!! Really looking forward to what you have in store for this set.
