i am thinking about starting a Tropicana set. I need another set like I need a hole in the head, but that is beside the point.

Have any Trops you're willing to sell? If so, please let me know what you have, price, and condition. Bonus points for photos, but not necessary.

Thanks!

Great set. When I was contemplating my first real chip set I ordered samples of these and was really close to purchasing them. They were just outside my budget at the time.

Inlays or hot-stamps? House mold or THC? I have a few racks...

If anyone has a lone single old school $1 Tropicana chip they want to sell, I'd like one to put in my case next to the 1980's and newer trop chips I have grabbed over the years :)

I couldn't answer definitively, but the TRK was the 1st set when the casino opened in 1957 (higher denoms were added later).
1972 they released the 2nd set (House mold done by Paulson).
Ramada bought it in 1979 and that is when the hot stamp chips on the THC mold were released.
In 1985 a Paulson House mold was released again with a new inlay that had the Ramada name on it.
In 1992 a new house mold and inlay (diamond logo) were introduced.

I have been away for a while with family illness and moving. I picked up some more first Edition Green $25 and a few more $1 first edition since I last posted. I realize the pics are not the best, but I have not had time to borrow a better picture taking machine. I also attached a picture of my 1200 second edition trops so they would not get left out . Hope you guys enjoy. Not really looking to sell, but I would sell the 2nd edition set . If someone wanted the first edition set, it would have to cover a couple years of college for my daughter :)
