yah those fracs and the cruise 25s are endgame kind of pieces. the 5s and 1s will be tough. can you imagine someone dropping 4 mint racks of claim stake 5s on auction or something? battle royale lol

@utgtrash Agreed on all points. I have learned so much over the last couple of months and feel like I have a better understanding and direction now. Not that I do not have a lot more to learn. I will be using the NCL's and Silver Star's in the next set. Now that I do have a playable THC mixed set I theoretically should be able to be more patient and wait for the rest of the "endgame" pieces to fall into place.

Congratulations, a mixed set anyone most certainly would be proud of!

And I wouldn't call it "corners cut". If you're anything like most of us, hang around for just a little bit and you'll have plenty of opportunities to modify and improve. Those Silver Stars are an iconic hot stamp frac, you can't go wrong with Flamingos (almost a rite of passage), the Casablanca/Aztar spot progression is slick, and that Eddies BOH is ... well, Fabulous.

Cheers and good luck on your continued search(es)!

@aggie Thank you so much for the kind words and support. You have been one of the members that have been really helpful.

Congrats, a nice looking mixed set :)

@buffalojim Thank you as well. You have also been super helpful and you rooting me on in the NCL auction was fun. Winning that auction was so much fun and really made me rethink the direction I was going with the set. Funny enough I secured the Aztar $25's about 2 hours before that auction ended thinking I would never win it. I thought it would get bid up higher and I really was not planning on going higher than $650 with my bid. Then in the end I was like screw it, buy the damn chips no matter the cost. Thanks @utgtrash for not continuing your bidding as you saved me some money and trust me I would have kept going. LOL

Here is what I am thinking of doing with the NCL's:

The only thing that nit's me a bit is the Claim Stake $5. It's a round inlay and will cause a repeat in the spot pattern with the NCL. With that being said I don't think it is that big of a deal. I just do not know of another $5 that would fix that and is even somewhat obtainable. I just threw the Yosemite Inn $100 in there as a place holder as I will be trying to find something with that inlay and spot pattern. I could always just throw the Eddies $100 in there and it would work great.

I was more than happy to see you snag em! I originally thought you'd have repeating spots for the 5, 25, and 100. I thought you were using the King's. We're all a bit ADD with chip choices around here so when your set turned out completely different than what I thought, I wasn't shocked lol.

Careful with that Yosemite, I think @chicubs1988 has his eyes on those and might be tempted to cut a bitch ;)

I could......but I think those NCL's needed better friends.

Alright!

So after about a 2 month Search and Destroy mission I have acquired the chips needed for the new leaded THC mixed set lineup. In fact...in true PCF fashion more chips were purchased than necessary and I have put together 2 separate mixed sets. I admit that things got out of control. After some tinkering with all the pieces I believe I have the lineups set.

I just wanted to update this thread as it has ton's of great information in it and was one of the reasons I got obsessed with leaded THC.

The following is a humble brag post with photo's.

Set #1: The Original Vision (Sort of)

Mixed Set 1 (3).jpg


Mixed Set 1 (5).jpg


Mixed Set 1 (8).jpg


Set #1: The Original Vision (Micro Stakes Version)

Mixed Set 1 (9).jpg



Set #2: Workhorse Set w/ the NCL $25's



Mixed Set 2 (21).jpg


Mixed Set 2 (5).jpg


Mixed Set 2 (2).jpg




Overall I am super pleased with the way these sets turned out. It was so much fun obsessing and hunting for all these chips. I am a little bummed the hunt is over. Both of these sets mean the world to me and will hopefully be passed down through my family in the years to come.

I would like to give a special thanks to all the PCF members that helped make this happen. There are a lot of members that got behind me and helped with selling me chips or just giving me advice. Thank you everyone! @ski_ex5 @colter ripton @Windwalker @Rieguy @pltrgyst @stavman @AfterTheFact @Kasper Storrs @aggie @buffalojim @liftapint @moechar . If I missed anyone I sincerely apologize. This truly is an amazing community of people and I look forward to continuing this adventure.

Thanks for looking,

Excellent work; both are incredible sets! Like we talked about it's awesome how they have unique shaped inlays, with the second having both that and different color inlays, which is quite a rarity. Looking forward to seeing the next projects you mentioned.
