Anyone collect Poker Card Guard's (Protectors) out there?
I am looking to purchase or trade any that you may have.
I look forward to hearing from you.

I typically use meaningful oversized chips (in airtites), or military or public safety challenge coins (police/fire) that have sentimental value.

The Bluffer Poker Coins are Great and you will find most, if not all of them, displayed on www.cardguardgallery.com
I am trying to build up a HISTORY OF POKER, which are Casino and Poker related Card Guard's, Protectors, Chips, Spinners and Dealer Buttons.
It does NOT display Cash Chips.
If you go to the Home Page and then refer to the 'Filter the Card Guards by' panel, you can see everything displayed.
There are over 1,400 Photo Scans.
Enjoy.

I use replica screw tokens from Old West brothels as card guards. Are you interested?

Thanks for the offer. They certainly look interesting and I am quite sure who ever acquired them originally, went 'ALL IN' and got a result!!!!!!
Unfortunately, they are NOT Officially issued Card Guard's.
I am looking for Card Guard's issued by Poker Rooms and Sponsor's of Poker Tournament's etc.
Hoping that you can assist me.

Pretty sure there is no such thing as 'officially issued card guards". Sounds a lot like "official 11.5g casino weight" to me.

There are a lot of 'random' produced Card Guard's produced. You only need to look on EBAY to see a large assortment of them.
Take a look at www.cardguardgallery.com and you will see OFFICIAL Card Guard's issued by Casino's, Poker Tournament Sponsors etc.
Take a look at the following Casino's:
Grosvenor
Aspers
Caesars Palace
Harrahs
Horseshoe

or Tournament Sponsors
Blue Square
Hollywood Poker
WSOP
Poker Stars
PKR
Betfair
APP
Paddy Power

Sorry but a Capsule does not make a Chip into an Official Card Guard

Neither does being issued by a casino or tournament sponsor. Still just card guards, nothing 'official' about them.

Not only will you find 'OFFICIALLY' issued Card Guard's etc. within the Card Guard Gallery but you will also find 'UNOFFICIALLY' manufactured Card Guard's and also 'BESPOKE' Card Guard's.

I feel discriminated against....
