It is time to vote for the 2020 PCF Custom Chip Set Hall of Fame. Of the sets that have been nominated for your consideration, three will be enshrined. When voting please MAKE ALL YOUR SELECTIONS AT ONE TIME! If you do not, you may not be able to go back and edit them.

Hall of Fame (HOF) Purpose
The purpose of the Hall of Fame is to recognize significant achievements in the creation of custom poker chip sets. This recognition comes from the votes of the PCF site membership, in collaboration with the work of a selection committee that solicits feedback from the membership and nominates sets for a formal vote. The committee is comprised of current PCF members, and the committee’s nominations do not necessarily equate to choosing the most popular sets. There is no quantitative way to assess the merits of a poker chip set; therefore, it is up to each committee member’s qualitative judgement on whether a set should be nominated for public voting. As poker chip sets are a very personal creation, in no way should a lack of nomination be viewed as any criticism on the quality of a member’s custom set. The entire HOF process is solely intended to celebrate and augment the enjoyment of our hobby.

The HOF Committee Membership
The committee is comprised of a chairperson, and a group of members. The chairperson’s role is to facilitate the HOF nomination process, and the committee’s role is to determine those sets that merit consideration for a full site vote. There was no formal membership selection process for the current committee members, it simply self-manifested. When a current committee member wishes to step down, they can select their replacement. If a replacement is not selected, the current committee members will debate and offer a seat to a replacement member in the first quarter of the year. It is the intent that the members rotate every couple of years, to harvest the best ideas from a diverse group of people. Current committee:
  • 72o (Alan)
  • inca911 (Forrest), current Chair
  • Irish (Matt)
  • PerthMike (Mike)
  • slisk250 (Mike)
HOF Nomination and Selection Process
Custom sets made by current PCF members are eligible for consideration in the HOF. There is a one year “cooling-off” period from the date of set creation before a set is eligible for HOF consideration, intended to prevent short-term hype from influencing the process. Custom sets are eligible for the current year’s class when the initial reveal of the set was put forward on or after 01Jan of two years prior. For example, a set that was unveiled on 01Jan2021 would be eligible for voting in CY2023 (i.e., cooling-off in CY2022).

Custom sets are eligible for nomination for a period of four years. The 2020 nominee class includes sets revealed from 01Jan2015 through 31Dec2018. Once a set has exceeded the eligibility period, it is no longer up for consideration. However, the HOF committee may nominate one “expired” set per year for consideration (i.e., to correct a previous oversight). The general process is as follows:
  • The HOF committee will solicit ideas from the site membership for HOF consideration in the first half of the year, including “expired” sets.
  • Using the opinions of the membership and their own personal beliefs, each committee member provides an independently created list of sets to the chairperson.
  • The sets are compiled by the chairperson, and the committee privately debates the merits of those sets. Eventually, sets that merit formal nomination are determined by an internal voting process. Members of the committee may recommend and vote for the nomination of their own sets; however, members of the committee are strongly discouraged from promoting their own sets (i.e., other committee members should do all the talking). The chairperson is responsible to discourage all forms of self-promotion.
  • Once formal nominations are completed, notification is provided to the set owners. The creator of a set must formally agree to inclusion of their set in the HOF process, and a draft write-up of the set with pictures is requested to facilitate the voting process.
  • After owner consent and information are obtained for all sets, the final list is subject to a public membership vote where the top sets will be inducted into the HOF. Voting is open for 2 weeks to established members with a minimum of ten posts. Yes, you can vote for them all but only the top 3 will be inducted--so choose wisely. The number of sets for induction will be determined by the committee, based on the quality of that year’s nominations. The quantity of PCF votes for each set is public; however, the ballots are secret.

Bill’s Haus of Bluff
by @Chippy McChiperson

I started a thread when I knew I wanted to make customs, but didn’t yet have a clear direction (started on 6/19/15):
https://www.pokerchipforum.com/threads/my-preliminary-mock-up.6487/

After many ideas (good and bad) I finally came up with a theme, "Bill's Haus of Bluff,” based on my name, Bill Kirchhausen, and the fact that I like to throw out the occasional bluff:
https://getyarn.io/yarn-clip/5740ab71-13e8-4873-95ff-b8b7db8ce0f6

The crab is a tribute to my home – and the greatest state in the union – Maryland, and we stuck the green visor on the crab just because I thought it gave him a little panache. J5 came up with the reverse side of the inlay where the crab is peeking up from the bottom of the chip on his own and that sealed the whole concept for me. Being able to do a double-sided inlay for no upcharge at CPC is huge in my opinion. It’s not always appropriate, but when it is it can really put some sets over the top.

Here's the next thread where I got the inlays from J5 and started getting close to the finished product:
https://www.pokerchipforum.com/threads/bills-haus-of-bluff.12659/

My first chip that I incorporated into the lineup was the fiver on 6/7/16, almost a full year after the process started, and the lineup wasn't complete until 8/17/16. I finally received the chips on 11/01/16, 21 months after I started the process, so I guess the moral of the story is listen to Jimmy V when he says "Don't give up, don't ever give up!”


I’ve had the pleasure of spreading many games with these – including travelling with them to such illustrious locations as The Hitching Post and The SpeakEC – and I’m always thrilled when they’re well-received.

Bubbs' Poker Den
by @ChaosRock

Bubbs' Poker Den is a tribute to Paulo's beloved English Bulldog "Bubbles". Paulo is quoted as saying that when he tells Bubbles, “It’s Poker Night!” she goes crazy and keeps looking outside until the first players show up. Bubbles is such an integral part of poker night and “part of the vibe” that this set was created so Bubbles will ALWAYS be present in his games.

Paulo has always been a fan of old school inlays and decided this was a must for this special tribute set. This set features an old school white inlay, black fonts, red denoms, and of course "Bubbs" Once the basic inlay design was created then they were sent to @Johnny5 to give them the finishing touches.

Paulo has also has always been a fan of Cali colored cash sets. Loving the Blue/Yellow workhorse chips he built a set around those colors. He opted to make this a bright and vibrant set.

The choice of mold was very easy. Having already designed previous sets in other molds Paulo decided that the set had to be done on the B-Mold for BUBBS!

Dr. Nutz’s Sex Wax
by @bivey

The Sex Wax set is a tribute to my wife. She is also the inspiration for the design elements. She has long held a love for the ocean, the beach, and especially Hawaii. She calls it her happy place. While on a 2016 family beach vacation, I came a across a surf shop with one of the famous sex wax stickers on display. Of course there are many similarities between the humorous play on words from this brand and my house of nutz custom chip designs. Mr. Zoggs became Dr. Nutz and the rest of the inlay took care of itself.

The other side of the inlay was more personal to our trips to Hawaii. The turtle being the centerpiece to Hawaiian culture and one of our favorite animals on earth. Hence it was put on the $1 chip. The colors are meant to represent the ocean and the brown is a nod to the color a turtle often appears from above the water's edge.
  • The $100 chip is the highest denomination and thus needed a pineapple, my wife's favorite Hawaiian food. The colors here are both tropical and terrestrial.
  • The $20 chip is the famous Hawaiian hibiscus. The colors are actually matched to a T-shirt that I wore during our honeymoon in Maui. (Light blue and orange version)
  • The frac is a meant to represent a "woody" longboard in the Hawaiian surf culture. The yellows and browns symbolizing wood.
  • The $5 rounds out the set and is a non traditional chocolate color highlighted with tropical colors. These colors often found on iconic Hawaiian art. The set wouldn't be complete without the sun of course.
The mold chosen from CPC is the H-mold, an inevitable choice for a set based around Hawaii.

The Sex Wax inlay was color matched by J5 design to accompany the edge chips' colors. The color fading already a staple of the surfboard wax's common representations of their logo. The $20 gave me some concern when moving from blue to orange, as the transition looks gray. An alternate was made to avoid disappointment.

As some inspirations often are, this design was lightning in a bottle - the whole set being 90% designed conceptually in about an hour. The concept then collected dust in my brain until a trip to Hawaii in 2018. While there the Hawaiian icons were chosen and the mockups finished. Little did I know, that I was about to receive a cancer diagnosis that almost sunk the set from actually being made. A mere 3 weeks later, I found a mass in my groin that was identified later as an aggressive lymphoma. I did ultimately decide to have the chips made and the order was placed while receiving chemotherapy. They were shipped from CPC, amazingly, while we celebrated the end of chemo in, of all places, Hawaii.

Lucky Buddha Club
by @RainmanTrail

Background and motivation for this set:
(TLDR Version: Went to Thailand... Elephants, Tigers, Buddhas, Monks, Yay!)

I love to travel. There are few things in life more rewarding to me than grabbing my passport, throwing on a backpack and embedding myself into another culture. My wife and I love going to Thailand. They have such an extremely rich culture full of kindness, gentleness, respect for fellow mankind, beautiful beaches, vibrant jungles, and the best food anywhere on earth, for our tastes. This set was inspired by our trips to Thailand and by Thai culture.

While traveling in Thailand, we had the opportunity to go elephant trekking in the jungle. It was an incredible experience. With elephants being such an integral part of Thai culture, choosing the Elephant & Crown mold was a no brainer for this set. I'm a HUGE animal lover, so for me, this was without question the highlight of our trip. I also had the opportunity to enter the cage of a giant tiger (with a few trainers of course). The sheer size of this majestic beast was INCREDIBLE!! Wrapping your arms around a 500 lb cat while he jumps off a table to eat his lunch produces a pretty good adrenaline rush! The power of his jaws chomping down on pieces of chicken reverberated through the air. Each time his jaws snapped, it sounded like a tree branch breaking! Absolutely incredible experience! The 25¢ chip was designed with a tiger's stripes in mind.

Our next adventure took us to see the giant Buddha at the top of the mountain in Chalong, Phuket where we had the opportunity to be blessed by a monk; a common tradition of the Thai peoples. Basically, I knelt down on the ground in front of the monk as he tied a friendship bracelet around my wrist, splashed me with water, and said "Good Luck!" before sending me on my way. While I don't believe in "luck", I do believe in showing adoration and respect for other cultures and found it to be a highly rewarding experience.

Whenever I travel, I always obtain souvenirs that could be used as a card marker at the poker table, whether that's a carved wooden turtle from Costa Rica, a seashell from Fiji, a clay pipe from Jamaica, or a piece of Coral from Colombia. This trip, I chose to pick up a couple of small Buddha statues - a common choice for poker players, especially from countries where Buddhism is commonly practiced.

When we got back home, I hit the tables and got to put my "Lucky Buddha" card marker on the felt for the first time. I proceeded to go on a tear in the O8 game where everyone at the table kept attributing my run-good to my "Lucky Buddha"! :ROFL: :ROFLMAO: I went back the next night, and booked an even bigger win, racking up almost $2k in profits from an 8-16 limit game in just 6 hours of play over 2 nights. When I got home from the casino, I saw the news that Spragg & Company were now offering the Elephant & Crown mold to the public. I couldn't believe my eyes! This is one of the all-time greatest molds in my opinion! Plus, I had literally just climbed off the back of an elephant just days before that! I didn't even have to think about what my theme might be. It was automatic. I would be designing a "Lucky Buddha Club" set for the E&C mold. Now, I just needed to figure out what I wanted it to look like.

I'm a huge fan of simplicity when it comes to inlay designs. I don't like overly busy artwork or clashing colors, so I designed my set with that goal in mind. In sticking with my theme, I chose to limit my set to only using traditional Buddhist colors (orange, red, yellow, blue, green, and white. I downloaded a few Thai style fonts, and some symbolic Buddhist images from the eight auspicious symbols of Buddhism, and went to work on my plan. The front inlays have a faint lotus flower in the background; something that is seen throughout Thai culture on seemingly every street. It represents purity, enlightenment and faith. The back inlays have a faint dharma wheel in the background, one of the most common symbols found in Buddhist culture which represents the path to enlightenment.

I wanted a custom set that was going to feel personal, but I struggled for years to come up with a concept. I have always loved sets that tied each chip into the theme, or were made in tribute to meaningful moments in life. With that in mind, I suggested to my wife that I'd like to do a safari set based on our honeymoon. Not only was she supportive, but she also suggested that each chip could be a different animal. So off I went.

I contacted @p5woody and didn't give him too much information, except that I wanted a sun in the middle, with the foreground in shadow and an animal in each and to make it look like Africa.

The original order had a giraffe $5, but I later did an add-on for a secondary lion $5, with different colour spots for extra contrast.

Denominations (with total quantities):
  • (200) $0.25 - 2A12 - DG green base with DG yellow and retro green spots
  • (300) $1 - 3d14 - DG peacock base with DG arc yellow and DG Tiger spots
  • (400) primary $5 - 4dsa316 - Canary base with light chocolate and chocolate spots
  • (200) secondary $5 - 4dsa316 - Canary base with butterscotch and maroon spots
  • (100) $20 - 6dsa18 - Bright White base with black spots
  • (20) $100 - 3v123ds18 - charcoal base with DG pink and bright white spots
  • Artist: Steve (P5woody)

Sierra’s
by @ruskba

After many years of watching the WSOP, I became more and more enamored with the chip designs. Eventually, after watching guys with mountains of the secondary $5k chips in some mixed game event, I had to figure out how I could get chips like that made. That led me to PCF for the first time. Getting customs was always the goal once I joined, but it took some time. I tinkered with the design tool, getting what is now my $1 chip worked out. Over the next couple of years, I slowly found more chips for inspiration: the Bellagio $20 would be my $5. I have plenty of fond memories of Vegas trips with buddies, especially at the Bellagio. I had eventually infiltrated the Colorado chippers’ games, and got to play with some PNYs for the first time. The secondary $100 was the next chip I couldn't get out of my head. Last but not least, the Horseshoe Cincinnati $1 came along as another design that lived rent-free in my head and the quarter was finally designed.

But what about a theme? All of the customs people were creating had these well thought out themes but I had nothing. I didn't have any great family history to use, and none of my other hobbies made much sense to convert to a poker chip theme. In the years it took me to design the spots and colors, I finally realized the theme was also being created: my own family. I had married my wife and our second child was on the way. I decided I wanted a simple name, and that name belonged to our daughter: Sierra. I met my wife while we worked in Detroit, so I wanted to find some imagery from the city to be my fictional card room. One of our favorite bars, the Bronx Bar, had the perfect vintage signage. My son's name, Harlan, would be the location, as his name was first heard in a show that takes place in Harlan County. The H-mold was an easy choice with my son's initial, but also because it would almost literally infuse some Vegas history when being pressed. It took about 3 years, but everything had finally come together.
  • $.25 - 100

SpeakEC
by @krafticus

I've always wanted to have a custom tournament set for my home game. I am sure, like most others, hundreds of iterations and names have been proposed and rejected, as they just don't have that "it" factor. I've toyed with many names and ideas; whether they were family, street name, or what-have-you. I got to the point where my creativity was done, and polled the 100+ players on my distribution list .. and still came up with nothing. One day, it just hit me, and I knew what I wanted. I wanted something that honored my home town, which we are so very fond of. Once I settled on that, I needed a name. Ellicott City was once called Ellicott Mills, due to all of the mills on the river that passed through town. I was thinking about an old mill, but I wanted to find an image from Ellicott Mills in the 1800's, but there was nothing to be found. strike 1. The Railroad industry is also very big around here, with the B&O railroad starting in Maryland and running through Ellicott City. Maybe each chip has a different train, or station. Again, I wanted authenticity, and there isn't much stylistic about the old trains. strike 2. I needed something Maryland/Ellicott City and poker related, and it hit me. A play on words with the SpeakEC. It was perfect. It incorporates the underground game and my home town.

Once the name was finalized, it was time for design. I have my original drawing that I had provided to two designers. The main item on my inlay is the clock that stands at the bottom of Main Street in Ellicott City. The clock, although there are others like it, is a symbol of our town. Ask anyone from the area about the symbols of old Ellicott City, and the clock is tops on the list. It has to be there. As you may, or may not know, our town was devastated by a flood in June 2016. This flood wiped out many of the small business and historic buildings with a vengeance, and devastated the town. The clock was at the bottom of the hill of Main street, and was washed away. The town (and state) came together to clean and repair the city, and it was a beautiful site. The time on the clock on my tournament set represents the time when the State of Emergency was called that evening.

The inlay has the clock as the centerpiece, with some of the old Speakeasy flair to it. It's a rather clean inlay with the clock and the banner (using the yellow color from the MD flag). All of the Maryland flag colors are on the inlay in some way (Red -denomination, Yellow - Banner, Black - text, White - Clock Face).

The chips themselves were mocked roughly 40 times. I was torn between the traditional tournament pattern, in which each chip has the same edge spot, or the different spots with progression. At this time in my chipping journey, every tournament set that I have had, had either no spots or the same spot pattern. I played with the progressions for what seemed like months. I decided that I was going to base some of the chips on my favorite casino chips as well.
  • The T100 - I wanted a non-black base for this chip, and decided to use similar colors to the WSOP 818 chips. The gray base with the Red and Imp Blue looked great, and this was locked in.
  • The T1000 - If you know me, you know my favorite chip of all time is the T1000 spotted Aztar hot stamped chip. This design was locked in. (in theory, I should have gone with the 8A14 spot instead of the 6A14, but I needed to cut a few costs).
  • The T5000 - Well, piggybacking off of the T1000, my second favorite chip of all time is the T5000 from that same Aztar set. I had thought about switching the T1000 to the T5000, and vice versa, but the cost of the yellow chip would have been too much. That, and why mess up perfection.
The remaining chips:
  • The T25 - Since I went with a lighter T100, I needed a darker green. I think Retro Green is one of the most under-rated colors on the palate. When paired with light, bright colors, it just pops. The DG tiger and Canary really make the green a beautiful chip (in my mind).
  • The T500 - To date, this is still my least favorite chip of the bunch. Using bright colors throughout, I needed to get the purple chip to balance. DG green and Black go well together, and it works well with the set.
  • The T25000 - Peacock is a color that should be in every set. I think this chip is an amazing chip that incorporates balanced colors. The only problem with this chip is that it rarely sees any table time.
The Bounties:
For my sets, I always have to have at least one chip with the MD flag colors. In this case, I had originally used a red base with black and canary spots. In some instances, it was mixed with the T1000, but it also has very similar colors to my $5 cash chip. I needed something more unique, and went for an update. The new Bounty has a black base with Retro Red, B. White, and Yellow 3T16 spots. I think it represents the flag perfectly, while also adding a distinct color and pattern to the set.

As a whole, the set now stands at roughly 1900 chips with the following breakdown:
  • 500 - T25
  • 500 - T100
  • 300 - T500
  • 300 - T1000
  • 100 - T5000
  • 40 - T25000
  • 50 - Red Bounty
  • 60 - Black Bounty
  • plus extras
This set now comfortably can run my monthly game of 30+ players (plus rebuys) with starting stacks of 12/12/5/6. While I did just recently add on to the set, I will most likely make 1 more add-on in the coming year (potentially adding another rack of T1000, more T5000, and more T25/100s.

The Beach
by @Venturalvn

The Beach was created in 2007 while living in the dreamy beach city of Santa Barbara. Located in southern California just an hour's drive away from Chumash Casino, where I cut my teeth on the felt at 18 years old, I started learning the game of poker with a coastal backdrop of artistic sunsets and palm trees. As on homage to the location, people, and time spent learning how to play, the idea for the Beach evolved over a series of design revisions that saw it go from a mockup using PGI china clay solid to a full ASM set with the then-recently released hourglass mold. Utilizing the full 1" inlay space to create a backdrop worthy of the skyscapes for the area, the hourglass mold offered the sense of sand through an hourglass, and the repeating stamp reminiscent of waves rolling into the shorefront.

The colors of the inlay and chips were designed to relay the mood of the day from the morning through to the night. The DG Peach quarter signifies the early morning down on the beach, with the sun rising above the horizon. By mid-day, a nice clear blue takes to the sky as the $1. As evening starts to set in, the palette changes to a warm gold glow as the sun starts to fade on the $5. A black $20 gets the night glow of a faded black, as we wait to start the cycle over again.

Later in the set's life a white $100 was added while an add-on of $1's and $5's was done. The colorway of the perfect sunset adorns the highest chip in the set, flowing across both the inlay and edgespots. The location was updated in the add on to reflect where my future and I would first live together.

Since then, a series of accessories has materialized. Dealer buttons, cut cards, custom pint glasses, and a tap handle all come together to form a happy family, available to all who show up on game night.

Very excited to see @RainmanTrail Lucky Buddha set back up for nomination again this year. One of two sets I voted for last year and I believe deserves to be in.

Question for the committee - are there formal rules for repeat nominations? Either automatically nominated the following year (if still eligible) or a limit to number of years nominated?

Thanks again for running this!

There really isn't a need for a thick rulebook to pick sets for an internet forum HOF. There is a voting eligibility window, and a mechanism for a worthy set outside of that window to be put up for a vote (i.e., the legacy set). That's pretty much it. The committee does track previous years' nominations and historical voting percentages. Next year, there will be 50% new members on the committee, with 50% different perspectives. The best way to get a set up for consideration (and site votes) is to participate in next year's HOF stump thread. The past few committees have given the Stump thread a lot of consideration in coming up with the final voting list.

If you see a nominated set that you like, just click the "like" button--even if it isn't getting your formal vote. I'm sure the set owners would appreciate the attention resulting from their creative efforts!

When I opened the thread and saw it was only 8 sets with the option to vote for 3 I figured this will be easy. Almost 1/2 the field will make it, boy was I wrong. As I scrolled down and read about each set and saw all the pics, all I kept saying is “I love this set, I love this set too, oh man, do I really love that set!”

It was much harder to pick only 3 than I anticipated.

Technically, you can vote for however many you like. It's just that the top 3 vote getters will get into the HOF.

This is why I only voted for one ha. They are all great, but one set stood above for me so I wanted to give it the best chance I could :tup:.
