Just wondering if anyone has the scoop about if Paulson's home retail chips are going to be discontinued anytime soon. I read something a while back that they might be pulling out of the home chip market again.

I haven't heard anything about this. I sure hope they don't pull out of the market, they make some great poker chips.

I have always been on the edge of getting a large set of the World TH&C chips. If this is the case I may grab some but only for a small cash game set since I have enough Terrible's for a small tourney. Maybe one of the vendors can chime in as they would know if it is true or not. If it is true, you'll probably see a spike in prices on eBay.

I have not heard this.

Paulson (Gaming Partners International) sells chips to the public through its retail arm, Trademark Poker. They also sell semi-custom chips through Apache Poker chips. The chips are on a distinctive mold and come in a stock list of base color / spot combinations. It's a nice mold, but it is not the "hat and cane" mold used on the World Tophat & Cane and Paulson Classic chips.

The customer can (and must, I believe) hot stamp the chips. They don't sell blanks, to my best recollection. If I remember correctly, to get the chips, Apache had to agree to buy 100,000 of these -- GPI's normal minimum order quantity for chips.

I have word from a few vendors that the nationals were discontinued so I bought up what I could. I got a 600 piece tourney set to use as a secondary to my paulson pharaohs. It was tough too I had to go through 3 country's to do it and I still didn't get an ideal breakdown. 100's are gone everywhere and most places are out of the 25 1000 and ncv.

Wasn't that mold was discontinued and replaced with the th&c suits mold? The only chip I do not like in the World series chips is the $500 chip. The purple is off IMO.

I agree about the purple $500 chip. It has been the one to stop me from buying a set as well.
