    I was behind in the hand? Surely your recollection must be flawed. :p:whistle: :whistling:

    My flawed recollection is that you were only behind until the river... then not so much! Funny how that works... :cool::D

    IMG_0291.JPG Looks like I have a space problem. I scanned all the chips that I've received in the last few months and put them in airtites. Not gonna fit.

    Looks like you need more cases... maybe in the side room?

    Kudos to Jeff for not only having a massive collection, but for putting them in alphabetical order.

    Think about it - If someone makes the AAAAArgh! Poker Room limit set, he has to spend 45 minutes shifting every single chip 2 to the right.

    Taking my chips out of the drawers and putting them out so I can see them. The new hutch is pretty nice. A little empty on the chips, but I have back ups coming.

    There's a ritual for the OCD. Accumulate the chips that belong in each letter of the alphabet on top of the case until you can't take it anymore that there are too many sitting on top. Then you look at the numbers of chips you have to add and figure out the beginning and ending chip in each case. Then you spend whatever time it takes to re-arrange. Simple, right?

    The hutch idea is wonderful because you can see everything. The barrister book cases are also nice! They all would allow more storage than my case. It only holds 12,000

    Well Mrs. O wanted to move some stuff around and wanted to know what to do with the barrister. Hmmmm.... What does a chip enthusiast do with an extra barrister bookcase?

    Here is what you do until you get your hands on an old antique barrister!

    Cool. Yeah I saw this one in store and it looked great. I splurged and got the next shelf up. Fantastic quality wood. I needed 4 adult men to move it.

    President Casino on the Admiral St Louis, closed in 2010. Chips are out there, but it would take some hunting. The Plaques were custom made by Matsui, and are on the expensive end of expensive (and that is already taking into account that this can be an expensive hobby). However, this thread will be a most definitive source of information.

    IMG_1125.jpg IMG_1123.jpg View attachment 142675 IMG_1123.jpg View attachment 142675 View attachment 142675 This is what I have been using. Old card catalog from BU.

    You can fit 400 chips per drawer in boxes, 200 in racks. I am working on getting 200 per drawer in built racks / drawer.

    There are 36 drawers. The drawers are easily interchangeable, so it is good for collecting chips for a future set. They can be grouped and easily moved around.

    Not as good to display complete sets.

    I'm working on that...
