these are fantastic. i only wish sets like this had good breakdowns. i think i've seen MAYBE two semi-custom paulson sets ever with breakdowns playable for my games. back to the time machine thread...
You wouldn't label over the chubby cowboy would you? He's great!Maybe the press put out 18 per batch, and the extra two would have cost a lot more.
I'd love to label these up. I like the breakdown just fine for a cash game - and I prefer to get more colors in play, not more stacks.

Or maybe the case only fit 99 per row, and the extras were lost in a drawer somehwere.
why do old custom Paulson's always have terrible breakdowns and things like $10 chips?
What's odd about this home set isn't the $10s, it is the $100s.
This home set was created 25-30 years ago. $25 chips (based on inflation) were worth a lot more than they are now. Most people didn't play poker in their home with that type of money. Much less 200 $100 chips. If you go back further, finding what we would consider tourney chips were purchased less frequently. Tournaments were not as prevalent until after Moneymaker won the WSOP in 2003. Whoever bought this set thought they would be using $100 chips in their home game. Balla
I half remember a set of cruise ship paulsons with just a logo, no text. Popped up on ebay a while back.That might explain the unique spots. What it doesn't explain is how a casino didn't have their name on the chips...unusual. Those crazy Canadians!

The snapper for that rack always makes me twitch when I see it due to the horrible placement of the decim.al
