Hello ya'll. New member and first time poster. I'm a long time poker player and have been doing a lot of research lately on different poker chips. I'm 30 years old and just purchased my first home this past year. I've had the itch to play some live poker since its been since February the last time i was at a casino. I'm having my first home game in a couple weeks and im torn on which set of chips I should use. I've had these "welcome to Las Vegas" 8.5 grams chips since i was probably about 14 years old. Purchased some more of them recently in case stacks get deep at future home games.

To start though, my first few home games will be with some close friends who aren't super into playing decent sized stakes (1-2$ and up), So i purchased some of the "mint 25 cent chips", so we can just play .25/.50 or .50/1.00$. (of course with some straddles.) But i dont really like the idea of mixing 13.5 gram mint chips with my current set, so i ordered 600 additional Mint poker chips. (just 1's, 5's and 25's). I haven't received those yet im, conflicted on which set i should use for the first home game. I could always use the green 25$ "welcome to vegas" chips as .25 chips if i really want to use that chip set in smaller games.

I've been very tempted to purchase a set of custom Royal 43mm chips from Apache poker but they say they are sold out of customizing chips at the moment. I kind of want to make a uniquie custom cash set with untraditional chip colors. (example: 1$-grey, orange- 5$, blue- 25$, flags- 100$ pink- 500$). Thoughts ?

In the future, I'd really like to get my hands on a set of Cleveland Horseshoe Paulson's. That is my hometown casino where I play most of my poker before Pandemic obviously.
(Now goes by Jack Casino).

Sorry, I know this post is just a bunch of rambling about nothing really. If anyone has any thought's on any of this, please respond with any advice. I'm def a newbie to the chip game and could use advice. Thanks and look forward to collecting some cool chip sets in the future.

Hello and welcome!!

This is a forum for collectors of small clay disks. I think if you were to ask, most normal people would argue 99.8% of posts here fit this description!

You should be able to easily find some cleveland horseshoes when you are ready. That was a big sale and lots of sets of the cash denominations around. I’m sure you’ve seen the chiproom sales.

That was the first set I bought when I was 14 too. I found them at Spencer’s at the mall and bought as many as I could afford. They were like mint Paulsons in comparison to the thin plastic discs or dice chips we would play with at the time.
