Hello. My name is Jeremy. I used to be a member over at Chiptalk. Only recently discovered this site as I was dusting off some old chips and looking to see if there were still other poker chip “nuts” like me. I was a part of the poker craze roughly a decade ago. I had to put poker and my collecting hobby on hold several years back as raising a family consumed a fair bit of my time. I have 2 sons. One, Clark, almost 4 and the second, Harvey, now 14 months. Still havent resumed playing poker due to the pandemic, but have been able to do a bit of collecting over the past year. Favorite collection is my Crystal Parks. Currently looking to boost my Vineyard collection. I’ve pick up quite a few chips over the years. I looked up chiptalk and was initially disappointed that the community had disappeared. Excited to see it seems to have just relocated here.

Welcome @johnsj12 awesome chips. I think you will find it difficult to add to the Vineyards as they are still very coveted, especially the $5s. The Crystal Parks can be found here and there, I would think definitely more obtainable than Vineyards. I am a fellow oversized inlay lover. I own a set of Aces Casino and Sports Bar Chips and Garden City. Both are pretty similar to your sets.

We love pictures around here so feel free to share the collection! Lots of Florida players around. My good buddy @Eloe2000 runs a fun game down that way... his profile says Casa Mango Flotida but not really sure where that is as it's the name of his poker room! Lol

Thanks. I have a decent start on the CPs though I need to build up my $20. But those are like unicorns apparently.

Welcome! Vineyards and CPs are both hot chips! Glad to see you reigniting the old flame. Hope you are able to finish out your sets and find what you're looking for here!
