Hi all. I have a barely used set of 300 Paulson zodiac chips that I've had for many years. I've seen some posts on them in this forum from a while back, and I'm curious to know if it would be worth it to list them on here and what a fair price might be. I've got 150 Aries (green), 100 Taurus (orange) and 50 Scorpio (black). They've seen very little use and are clean and sharp with no visible wear. I don't know how to officially grade poker chips, but I'd call them "used, like new."

My hope would be to put whatever they might fetch toward a new set of china clays with custom labels or maybe a custom ceramic set.

Any guidance is appreciated. Here is a not so great picture of them:

i had a little over 1000 of these way back in the day (timestamp of photo is from 2009). i dont remember exactly how much i sold them for or who i sold them to but i'm pretty sure they sold for less than $1 per (.80 maybe?). There just isnt a demand for these IMO

Four strikes against these:
1. Solids -- most folks want edge spots (personally I love solids)
2. Giant inlays - less chip visible, makes chips slipperier when handling/stacking
3. No denominations - flexible yes, but most want denoms to avoid the "what is this chip worth again?" question
4. Theme -- very very small group would want zodiac signs -- they would be popular in the 1960's & 70's though!

K9 did I buy them from you? I have about 3000 and for a couple of years was the only person buying them. They can go above 1 USD per chip - normally for certain colours and signs. Scorpio, Gemini a little more then the others. Virgo and Leo. Especially Leo.

@UKS - if you ever want any more, I know a guy who could make you a deal.

so... how'd you do with these if I may ask. I have a full set of about 500 I think and I have all the signs.

I have a set for sale in the classifieds right now that will probably be sold for a lot lower than I'm currently asking.
