After a recent thread got me remembering chips i saw when i first came around in '15.
I figure I'd give this a shot.
Looking for a tourney set of the Ultimate Bet chips.
I'm up for a history lesson if anyone would be so inclined :D
Thank You Very Much.

Interesting, that $5 looks like the Argosy $5. I love that $25.

Good luck with your search!
Thanks man! This is probably the only “grail set” (in my eyes at least) I think I’d actually have a realistic shot at.
Lord knows I’d have to fall ass first into a shit ton of money to get that BTP :D

If I recall some past posts about these chips correctly, these chips were made primarily for Ultimate Bet blackjack tournaments, not necessarily poker tournaments. And I think that's one reason that there are a lot more 25 and 100 chips made than the higher denominations, maybe like 10 to 20 times more 25s and 100s (?)

Full disclosure: I own 1 rack of 25s & 1 rack of 100s (and might consider selling at a fairly reasonable price, if you wanted to build a mixed tournament set around them). But you may have a hard time finding any 500, 1000, or 5000s.

Yeah you should be able to find the 25's & 100's pretty easily they are out there. I finally sold all my lower denoms some time back because the upper denoms, especially the 1K & 5K are a tough find. GLWS!

Awesome! Only thing I’ve been able to find is a couple posts stating @Apache sold their UN chips after the scandal broke. Not sure if it’s true or not

Agree with this. I've mostly seen the 100's pop up now and then, but never seen racks of $500 and up.

Thank you!
Yea that’s the consensus about this set, like most, is finding the bigger demons. But I’ll be on the hunt none the less. After all, that is part of the “fun” of chipping lol.
Wish I had jumped on an ad I saw when I first joined way back when from @Bordizzle
Probably why I like them so much as they were the first set I saw and was in aw about :cool

Weekend bump.
Had some inquiries about 25’s/ 100’s nothing on anything else, which I knew was likely coming in. I’ll have better luck find a barrel or two of a 43mm and relabel as 5000’s.

Also included here, a good watch on the scandal for more history.
Thank you folks :cool

There are several quick flashes of these chips in the video as well -- see below during the segment about "Elimination Blackjack" or tournament blackjack.
