Ummm... WOW? That is a LOT of chips. They are so cool though. I am just no learning about all the 'classic sets'.. Are these consider 'vintage'? Sorry for the noobish question. All my chip came from wal-mart sooo... LOL
About a year. The 1,000 chips are by far the most expensive and challenging to find. I missed an eBay auction which had a rack of 100 up for $700 (a steal at that price) but ended up paying closer to retail. Most came from a fellow Canadian. Last time I checked, he was still selling off his stash (no more $1,000's though).
In 5 years you'll probably be saying the same thing! ...actually I don't know how much higher these chips can go. But like you, I'd die to go back and find them for $.50-.70 each or whatever crazy price they sold for.
Sold all the Motor City Quarters & some lower denoms. I have another cash set and frankly I have reached that point in my addiction to see I don't HAVE to have all these chips.
Anyway, I DO have $1, $3, $5, $25 (I think) I want to get rid of that didn't sell last time I put them up on CT. A couple sales fell through & I just need to get them back up on line. I'll try to do that this weekend. No plans to sell any of my $1K or $500/$100's.
