I decided it would be cool to have some custom ceramic poker chip plaques made and what to me I couldn't think of a cooler looking logo then the old Terrible's casino so here are some variations I came up with:

Size would be 107mm x 75mm

Just a few ideas I came up with. I didn't spend a ton of time on them but just something to get a few ideas on the board.

I like the top one better but don't really like the "upside down" denoms in the top corners.

These are neat but I never been into plaques. Chips or plaques should be gray for the $5k if you want to follow the MO Gaming Commission standard. ;) How about a custom $5k ceramic chip?

IMO it'll be difficult to find someone to make these due to trademark issues. Don't quote me on that though since I'm not an expert

Changed the 5k to all face the same direction as I like that better too.

I did a lighter grey version of the 5k chip and just for fun I added commemorative to the logo... ;).

I would want to use my St Jo label design though. ;) I see another chip re-label project coming soon.

Lol nice. Those Casablancas are all sold out now on their website. They're all over ebay though and a CT member has an f-ton of them.

I like those grey yellow casablancas too. I'd spring for some if I had some extra cash right now. Course I need to collect the rest of my traveling Terrible set before I worry too much about the big denominations. Need my 1's and 5's!

If I did custom $5k chips, I would go with the gray with red and white edge spots. It just goes with the Terrible's inlay better IMO.

Cheese, you still thinking of doing this? Chips or Plaques?

I am but I've got it on the back burner while I try and find the rest of my heads up set and my sample set of St Jo's.

I'm also thinking maybe a chip would be the way to go instead of the plaque being I got a Spade Chip Display to hang on my wall and if I had a 1k and 5k St Jo chip they could go in the case with the rest of my St Jo's.

Gotcha. What is a spade chip display? Shaped like a spade?

Yep it's 2 pieces of plexiglass with a hanger on the back so you can put it on your wall. They have all 4 suits so its kinda cool if you had all of them in a man cave :). Each one holds 15 chips. The one I got had Mardi Gras Queen Casino chips in it already but I want to put my Terrible's in it once I collect the remaining ones I need.

Here's a link to them if you want to see exactly what I'm talking about. I bought mine off ebay used. http://www.gamblersgeneralstore.com/products/spade_shaped_display_frame/384.php?page_id=48

Take a pic when you put some chips in it. I want to see how it looks. Thanks!

Man you guys sure do love Terrible's huh? Wish I had a chance to play there. Maybe I'd share the same feelings.

I've never even played there I just love the logo and the chip colors/layout. Tommy did you ever play at St Jo's when it was officially Terrible St Jo's?

I like the idea of a terrible a plaque but it seems like it is missing something. Lots of empty space.

My biggest constraint at the moment is time, but hit me up via pm and we might be able to work out an arrangement.

After looking into this a bit further, I think that the Terrible's plaques might be a non-starter given copyright law. Not only would I feel shaky using the Herbst logo without permission as part of a design, but I have to think you're going to have a hard time finding somebody to print them up.
