Looking to buy two racks of Paulson $1s to go with my cash set of $5 Bahamia's pictured below. I only have one rack of Bahamia $1s currently, which is not enough for my cash game needs. I'm absolutely willing to trade or negotiate on prices, and would appreciate any offers or being pointed in the right direction.

What I'm searching for in order of priority (only want chips in very good to mint condition please):

1) One rack of Bahamia $1s (pictured below)

2) Two racks of Mirage Poker Room $1s (pictured below)

3) Two racks of Cosmopolitan $1s (pictured below)

4) Looking for suggestions from you all on $1 Paulson chips that would go well with the pink and blue Bahamia $5s. Specifically looking for something that has a color and edge spots that contrast well with the loud Bahamia's (2 racks preferred and I'm not picky about real casino vs fantasy chips) ;):D

Thanks all!!!

I do like that Sam's Town a lot!, but prefer regular inlay...and I've actually experimented with several blue $1s and they actually don't mix well (in terms of distinguishing bets/raises) because of the giant blue inlays on the majority of the Bahamia's.

my vote is for the golden nugget ..... yellow stripes on a dark blue chip looks sharp. Ceasars looks good too, but only if you use the smaller label chips (I've seen both sizes)..not as big of a fan of the larger ones (like the one in the pic)

Don't like the shades ok the GN, but I'd gladly buy some Caesar's or TI's if I just knew where to get them at a reasonable price. No trip to Vegas on the horizon yet, and Spinettis isn't budging on their pricing :(

Love the set, and naturally have been eyeing them for weeks, but don't love the boring color scheme of the $1s. Thanks for all the input so far folks!

I suggested it because the spot colors are similar to the Bahamia $1s. I'll keep looking. :)

Hey I have 200 of these paulsons that go pretty well with the Bahamia set. :) Interested? May take some 5$ in partial trade.

How about a Scandia $1 to match up with the $5 Bahamia? I think they look nice together, but I'm not sure there's enough contrast given the amount of blue in each chip. It's fairly easy to see a misplaced $5 in a stack of $1 chips, but a little harder to see a misplaced $1 in a stack of $5's (see below). Just a thought.

Thanks for the continued ideas! The more I think about my options, the more I think I want to stay away from blue...simply because of the potential lack of contrast. I'm thinking I might just bite the bullet and pay out the ass for some more legit Bahamia $1s :(

Another rack of $1 Bahamia chips is certainly the "best" solution, albeit the most expensive too.

I remember right after I bought my set about three years ago, I had an opportunity to buy a 3rd rack of $1 Bahamia chips to add to my cash set. I passed on it at the time because I really didn't "need" 300 $1 chips as we never had more than a single table. In hindsight it was probably a mistake to pass on it, if for no other reason than I could have more easily split my huge cash set into two smaller cash sets if I had more $1 chips.
