    "Just when I thought I was out... they pulled me back in."

    I had been collecting TRK single for a couple years, but last year I decided I wasn't going to collect singles anymore. So I sold them all off (Mapes, Nevada Club/Lodge, etc.) and chased other chips for the sets I've been working on. Everything was fine until this thread appeared. Dammit, now I'm back in the singles game. Here's some recent acquisitions:

    My Jessie Beck set is a little unusual in that it has a uncirculated $1 chip (most of them are casino worn) that is also an error chip. It has no granny inlay side. The crest inlay is on both sides.

    For a long time that was the most expensive single I had purchased. They're more available now it seems and the condition of the ones that come up on eBay are really nice. Keep looking!

    Last one was $75 BIN or something like that. Um, no. Under $50 I'd consider. I think.

    I think you can get it for less than that. I believe he offered it to me for $6500 when I was drooling over it.

    This showed up today.

    This is going to be an expensive new habit.

    Man that Plaza $1 looks sweet. Condition is so tough with a lot of the TRK $1s. That Rainbow 25c is the rarer of the 2 versions. Great Pickups

    Made some progress on the Rainbow Clubs this week. I'm guessing some the rest are going to be more difficult to track down.
