I was looking at some old photos of past chip sales, and came across some which made me say, “What was I thinking, letting those go?”

Here’s one: Some weird metallic golds with strange pitting on some of the edges. They were flawed, but totally unique. Felt like ... money. I wish I’d kept them for use as bounty/all in chips:

I joined the old blue wall site to sell my used but minty set of 300 Paulson Le Noire tourney chips

I regret selling them, but it did bring me into this great community for the long term, so a small price to pay

Ughhhhhhh
I first got started in Paulsons, with Classics and Pharaoh's. I sold my classics pretty quick. No regret there, whatsoever.

The Pharaoh's, not the same feeling. I was sad to sell it Infact. While packing it up, I was definitely feeling I've made a bad mistake. Never even felted it. Was painful and expensive to build. It needed to be sold at the time, to make way for an AS Hot Stamps set.

That said, I recently bought the whole thing back in one shot. What a great feeling. Now COVID is the only thing preventing me from finally using it.

I also LOVE Jack chips. Maybe it's obvious, I don't know, but I regret selling mint Jack $5s. I had 2 racks. Let them go. Who knows why!!! I've spent months to get them back for more money, by the barrel, and just plain difficult with the amount of shipping and overhead added to get them back. It was one of my more idiotic sales given how much I LOVE the chips and still do. Now I've got 300 just to be sure I'm happy. I desire a 4th rack, but I'll wait patiently or maybe never acquire it, I'm happy and whole again .

Surprisingly, I spent alot of time and money accumulating Blue Chip Casino fracs. Almost 194 of them. I recently sold these. Lost some money. Have no regrets. Glad they are gone and not wasting space in my chip case. I've acquired much better chips that can and will see use in their stead. Can't wait to get them as they are in transit. In this case, this was a solid chipping move and made my collection better. No point in having chips with no purpose past being in a case.

I almost put my Isle $1s up for sale, but @TofuJelly talked me out of it. Still, I regret even thinking that I would sell them. They have this look on their faces now. They know what I was considering doing...

Sold my cdi 05 cash set because ”I’ll only need one cash set”. Well now 6 months later I have three with a fourth on the way.

This place....:confused

I had some Fitzgerald Reno tourney chips back in my ChipTalk days before law school (circa 08/09) ... I barely remember my setup but I think I only had a small heads up set. But they were spectacular - Great, heavy chips. Not really sure why I sold them. I guess I kind of just fell out of the chipping hobby as my attention focused on law school stuff and new priorities and found little use for them. Kicking myself now as I’ve reentered the hobby. Live and learn I suppose :)

I don’t have any pics of the set unfortunately and only found this link for a sale by another member a few years back. FYI, this wasn’t my set. I think I had maybe three barrels each of the T5 and T25 and two barrels of the T100. But the colors were spectacular. Would buy again if possible.

All of them. Too many to list. GCR bcc gopherbluesman could be one of my biggest regrets though but definitely not the only one. SDPM cash and tourney would be another. And...and...and...dang!!!!!

Nothing so far. All became redundant or didn't fit a set I was building.
