There is a really Great GB going on right now for "Park Place" Abbiati Chips and since there is a minimum order of 100 chips I have decided to do a little mini GB for Samples so that anyone can get 1 or 2 or a few of each or just 1 or 2 chips if that is your thing. This is specifically for anyone that wants between 1-99 of the Park Place Abbiati GB chips that tommy is organizing right now, AND is either CONUS or has a CONUS shipping address they can use.

ORDERING OPEN UNTIL SATURDAY 5/22/21
PAYMENTS ARE DUE BY SATURDAY 6/5/21


The most up to date information on this GB can be found in one of the 2 following threads:

Here is a link to Discussion of said Chips:
https://www.pokerchipforum.com/threads/injection-molded-chips-gb-2021.67475/

Here is a link for ordering said chips if you are interested in more than 100 total chips:
https://www.pokerchipforum.com/threads/park-place-gb-order-thread-cash-and-tourney-open.73636/

I am committing to 10 ea of each denomination for both the CASH and TOURNAMENT sets which is a total of 120 chips. I will adjust this number as necessary as others commit to this Sample Set GB.

For anyone wants some of these and would like to participate in this mini GB, please post the numbers of each that you want in the following format. If you decide to change your order, do not post twice, just come back to your original post and edit it. If you want 1 of each of the 12 different chips your post would look like this:

Cash Set
25c - 1
$1 - 1
$5 - 1
$20 - 1
$25 - 1
$100 - 1

Tourney Set
T25 - 1
T100 - 1
T500 - 1
T1K - 1
T5K - 1
T25K - 1

Pricing:
There are a lot of one time fees associated with this GB and the final price will fluctuate significantly based on the overall number of chips ordered and quantity of each denomination. If you want more info, read in the OP of the main ordering thread and it lays it all out. As for a Guess, it sounds like they will be in the $2.25-$2.50 ish range. I am not trying to make any money on this mini GB and as such will pass along whatever the actual price winds up being + usps pricing for re-shipping. Details to follow, but for example if you want 1 of each so a total of 12 chips I will offer usps 1st class in a padded envelope (well wrapped to ensure no damage) for $5 or if you want I will ship in usps sfrb for $9 (Your choice)

I will update this OP with a variety of things as this moves along including, but not limited to: a spreadsheet with what everyone is getting, Final Pricing, Due Dates etc

Here is what they will look like:
Cash & Tournament:



6/2/2021 11am CST Update
Here is a spreadsheet that has everyone's final ordering information and my best estimate at this time of what all the costs are going to be. I am sure that this will change slightly so don't shoot the messenger when your final bill is a $1 or $2 off. I have now included 1st Payment amounts Due and Status of that amount and Shipping preferences.

Everyone in our little group has now Paid and so I just paid Tommy!
Thanks to everyone for paying quickly and not holding things up. You all are fantastic!!!!

Before I ship out the chips, just like tommy, I will request a 2nd payment that will be for Shipping from me to you +/- any sort of adjustment that might come about because of estimates being off or change in exchange rates etc.

It looks like about 75% or so of the people in the main GB have now paid. Still waiting for a few more members to pay before tommy sends in the payment. I will update when any new information becomes available.




UPDATE from Tommy: 6/7/21

1) The chips from the non-paid order were all picked from members in the GB. Thank you all.

2) I heard back from Abbiati today. They say that we can't use a customized inner ring on the "New Security" mold that the $100 chip uses.

I believe this might be inaccurate, so I asked them to double-check with the factory because their brochure shows some other New Security chips with a customized inner ring. If they still say it's not possible, we will use the same mold as the $20/$25, which we also did on The Crown Plaza $100.

I will update again when I hear back about the $100.

UPDATE: 6/9/21
Now confirmed that the $100 is not going to work as originally envisioned. The decision has been made to use the same mold as the $20 & $25 chip and move forward with that. Proofs and a final quote are being worked on now.

UPDATE: 6/11/21
Invoice Received from Abbiati and Paid. It looks to me like the actual cost is within a few hundred dollars over 29,000+ chips so the adjustment should be minimal. Now waiting on proofs to give the go ahead.

UPDATE from Tommy: 6/17/21
Got the proofs today. All checked out as posted in the order thread except for the $1. The base color should be #10 white and not #48 light grey.
I sent it back for a revision with this photo.

UPDATE from Tommy: 6/23/21
Proofs have been signed and sent! The wait time will be about 12 weeks from now. If I hear anything before then, I'll post an update.

UPDATE from Tommy: 8/26/21
I sent Abbiati an email and got an auto-reply that said they are closed for the summer holidays and will re-open on the 1st of Sept :rolleyes: I should have a status update shortly after that. Will keep you posted. Thx.

UPDATE from Tommy: 9/24/21
I'm just waiting for Abbiati to let me know the order is done and preparing for shipping. I'm hoping to hear from them within the next two weeks as that should be close to the estimated time frame when not including August. I'll keep you all posted when I get an update. Thanks!

Thanks for doing this!!! Those Tourney chips are FIRE! :love:

Playable set is way too pricey for me, but I suppose I had better grab a few to see what all the excitement is about Abbiati.

I would like a sample set as well. 1 of each. This is my first purchase on this site so I may need a little guidance as to what to do next.

You have already done what needs to be done for now. Keep an eye on this thread. When the time comes, I will post and let everyone know when and how much they owe.

Got it.. Guess my next question would be that if and when we do receive the sample set and decide whether or not to purchase a complete tourney or cash set within the same group, will we be able to?

No that isn't how this works. This is a 1 time GB and that one time is right now. I wouldn't let that discourage you from the sample set purchase though. As mentioned above, it is truly the best idea to get a bunch of samples from different manufacturers at different price points to see what you like.

These are high ish end chips price wise. I think that without knowing what exactly what you would be getting most here would advise against purchasing an entire set of these.

In all likelihood you will be able to sell the sample set easily down the road for what you paid once you decide what type of chips you will be going with.

@Rivered_AGAIN there is a plan to reorder these chips next year, but @Nanook is right that you will not be able to buy both samples, handle them, and then buy a set this time. Of course things can change and there are no guarantees, so personally I am treating this as a 1 time GB.
