That’s the true beauty of this hobby though isn’t it (and life in general)? It’s all in the eye of the beholder. One man’s grail chip can just as easily be another man’s potato chip.
This!Personally, the challenge with rating inlays in and of themselves is that they are only a component of the bigger picture that is the entire chip. Sometimes a simple/boring inlay allows the edge spots to be the star and vice versa. Sometimes everything comes together to create a chip greater than the sum of its parts.
But the inlays....idk I guess if you showed it completely by itself, maybe a solid 4? But @RainmanTrail didn’t cut out and show us only the inlay. It seems so simple and easy to put together (anyone could’ve thought of that!), but the tent, font, each color - I think chosen to perfection and just works beautifully with this chip and the set. 5 all day long.
edit - wow can’t believe the amount of 1 votes. Cool to see the different opinions. I’m guessing those folks are looking purely at the label itself and thinking, eh simple bright colors?
Yeah I got that awhile back. I’m not voting on any of the processes or whether they were borrowed or what not, just what I think of the aesthetics.
Disagree. The Carousel has some fun details. The BTP is a decent execution, but a little lazy. If it's a circus, show me a lion or an elephant or something. I'd had a circus theme custom set in my head for a couple of years. I may still make it someday. This one is whimsical, but disappointing.Much more 'inspired by' than 'based on', imo.....and a much better execution of the idea. The "POKER" text doesn't detract, but I do think it would be a cleaner design without it.
It’s a nice nod to poker, personally I think it has a nice ring to it.For me, it's rewording Greatest Show on Earth. Felt just bugs me. Why limit it to felt? Why change it? A poker game could conceivably still be the greatest show on earth.
I can't help but point out that after Belichick had his boys smash Marshall Faulk (who's still bitter) on every damn play, they weren't the greatest show on anything.It’s a nice nod to poker, personally I think it has a nice ring to it.
Rams weren’t selling tickets to the greatest show on earth.

What, I'm a patriots fan. I try to keep it polite, but what am I supposed to do?All inlay voting threads had an average of 19% chance of being derailed.
The BTP inlay voting thread had an increased 47% chance of being derailed.
It had only a 1.3% chance of being derailed by me arguing the validity of the Rams as the greatest show, but here we go!
