Looking to build a 1000 chip cash set. Would like to create a THC set (don't have to be leaded, but that's a +) or a Cali Cash set (really love those Vineyards), anything with bright colors but something that's realistically attainable as I know building one of these can be a mission especially for some rare chips.

As for breakdown, it'll probably be:
100 Fracs
200 1's
400 5's
200 25's
100 100's

Edit: Looking to start searching for chips in March/April sometime, so just curious to see what's feasible out there.

Thanks for anybody's help in advance!

Good luck. Possible in your time frame? Dunno. Possible with a lot of cash to throw around? Perhaps.
Likely would be a mixed set with probability of customization.
Ah that's a good point. Didn't mean it had to be done by then, Just meant that's when I'm going to hopefully start looking for em actively (will update OP), just trying to gather what's out there so I can see my options hahaha. Open to a mixed set as well!

Budget? Do you care if they are real casino chips or Paulson home chips like CDI, Viva Las Vegas, Classics, etc?

I'm pretty inexperienced with how much these chip should be going for so was thinking around $3k ish? Give or take, would consider bumping up the budget if I'm going to build the set over the next year and gather it piece by piece.

EDIT: Don't care if they are casino chips or not, just mostly care about how they look lol.

specifically THC or is RHC acceptable?
Would prefer THC, but as I'm just browsing would be curious to see what fun RHC options exist out there.

One last question that has an impact on price and options. How sensitive are you to condition?

I don't mind used condition as I love the way they shuffle used. Only thing that really matters is that they're clean/cleanable and have nice colors hahaha

If you aren’t specific about standard base colors and wanted to reliable you could definitely piece together a mint/excellent THC set for around $3ea particularly leaning on Paulson home chips. Chips like CDM, VLV, CDI, Scandia etc. or even just find or build one of those sets for around 3ea.

Lots of casino options. It is probably either best just to have the cash ready and see what pops up as a good starter set and then build onto it. Although the benefit of knowing what you want is that you can really track it down through the community.

I actually looked through the classifieds and filtered by “sold” and it occurred to me that we haven’t seen many full sets selling lately. But you can look back through the classifieds to get a sense of what sets are more common and relative prices.

I like the CDI's and the Scandia's. I should look into those and some other fantasy options.

And regarding your second point yeah, I'm just trying to narrow down what I'm interested in and trying to take my time. Are there any casino options that come to mind, even if they are out of my range?

Really appreciate all the help!

Yes, it will probably be easier to make a mixed THC set. My advice: if you see a $5 chip that you like in the quantity you need, buy that one right away. The $5s are always hardest to get matched in larger quantities.

Awesome, I'll definitely prioritize the 5's then. Really appreciate it!

Just looked some of these up and they're amazing options! Love the coke giraffes especially, but I definitely dont think those would be easily attainable, especially not for a price I could probably afford hahaha. ES, condado beach and BTP perhaps though! Appreciate this and any other ideas you have :)
