For those of you that know me, I started collecting poker chips officially in 2013, just about 10 years ago now. I can’t believe it’s actually been that long, can you? Lots of you have been doing this even longer since the ChipTalk days and even longer than that when ASM was the hip thing to know. But for me, my interest in the mid to late 00’s poker chips started with seeing some really awesome clay poker chips by a little website called Sidepot. I was enthralled by the absolute majesty of the “Modern Clay” and eventually the “In Play” poker chips. I had only bought and used common metal slug chips at the time and dreamed of having something like this in my hands. I ordered a sample set and must have played with this for countless hours. Only problem was that I simply couldn’t justify or afford something that was about $1 or so a chip in cost. That was a ludicrous amount of money, especially for someone working a simple data entry job for $7 an hour in the mid 2000s.

Well, I never forgot about those chips. So when I discovered PCF later, I continued to search out these In Play chips. Eventually, I got my hands on a set of them, taking a big leap into the ocean of no return we know as “this hobby”. I fell in love with the feel, the texture, the weight, the acoustics, and eventually - the oil process - especially with the BCC clay formulation. Countless hours spent with a tiny brush and a little cap of oil, watching as the dull and dry clay was brought to a vibrant exuberance with a little coat of oil. I was fascinated with how it absorbed into the chip and breathed life into them. This process was actually far more enjoyable than playing poker with them. I only ever had a couple home games where I used these chips. Most of my relationship with them involved just staring at them before and after maintenance. Then they would sit on a shelf for 6 to 12 months and I would do it again after they dried out.

So, why am I talking about this right now? You might be wondering why I reminisce like they are some long lost friend that had their life cut short by a horrible accident or disease.

When I started this hobby, I was in a good place in life. I had a good job, not too many expenses, wasn’t married, didn’t have kids, and could take a leap or two on something that was an expensive venture. Well, expensive to me at the time ($1 a chip, right?) So, I collected and traded and built sets like many of us do. I owned all sorts, including Paulson sets like NPS chips (some of you remember). But I never ever traded or sold the In Plays. They were always my dream chippies.

Today, I have a wife and two kids, a house, two cars, and a laundry list of bills that I didn’t have before. With inflation, we are all spending more and I don’t know about you guys but my business didn’t keep up with paying me or my colleagues the difference in cost of living. I am always very meticulous in paying all my bills and keeping debt manageable so that the risk to me and my family is small. But as with all things, unexpected things happen and if I don’t do something now, I could be a slave to debt for my entire life like my dad was.

So I have to ask myself, “How badly do I want to live on the edge when I could sell something that would significantly help me keep a padding against debt piling up in my life?” Not only this, but I can’t imagine how many of you out there have asked me for like eight years if I would consider selling my In Plays lol. It’s not fair to have such a beautiful set of chips just wasting away on my shelves while they could be married to others dancing their days away on the felt.

So I have decided to let my In Plays go. I’m not letting all my chips go. But this is by far my most prized set.

However, I have some demands from the community before I do so.

  1. I have been out of the selling game for a long time and just looking at the recent sales of chips turns my stomach a little. There is almost no way I could even afford to be in this hobby with the prices of sets that I used to collect being so high. With that said, if I were to even sell my chips, I would have no way to know what the fair market value (FMV) of them even is. I could look at recent sales and throw prices out there but that doesn’t seem very representative and it’s not how I operate. I am not someone who is looking to bankrupt someone looking for 20 chips to complete a rack of their favorite set.
  2. I don’t want to sell the set as one sale unless whoever buys it wants to help others complete their sets. This is an insane decision on my part and it makes things a lot harder for me because packaging just one set verses producing 12 smaller packages would be a lot easier but it would also concentrate these beautiful chips to one person and I feel like that isn’t right. I collected them in a bunch of purchases and without people selling small lots, I wouldn’t have been able to get where I am today. So I am hoping to sell by barrels or racks to a couple people (if possible, I won’t dismiss an outright offer to take the lot but I would hope you guys work out amongst yourselves in the spirit of sharing).
  3. When I place the chips for sale, I will be 100% transparent about the general quality of the chips. There are manufacturing quirks to BCC so I am going to do my best to sort them into barrels of equal quality and if some chips have defects or quirks, that will be noted and we can sell these separately if we need to.
  4. I do not have a timeline on how fast to sell these or when I will post them. I need to figure out the FMV of each denomination. If some community members would be so kind, I would appreciate some help in determining this. Again, I’m not looking to extract maximum value, I just want to get a reasonable amount but still make them accessible. Please help me do this for the community if you can.
  5. Lastly, it’s been so damn long - if I promised a right of first refusal for some chips in this set to someone over the years, please remind me in a PM and we will work out something privately. I feel like I might have done this over the years but it would take me eons to figure that out lol. So just remind me.

My set is not huge but contains some little treasures like 125 quarters and 100 half dollar chips as well as a bunch of 500s and 50 x 1000 and 50 x 5000 chips. Yeah, only about 1400-1500 chips total. So try to figure out who really needs them. I would hate to sell these and find out they sat on a shelf for another five years while their chippie brothers and sisters were looking for them in home games to no avail.

This whole post might seem dumb to some people who are new or might have more buying power than others but to those that helped me build the set painstakingly over the years, you’ll understand where I am coming from and you’ll also know that this is a pretty emotional decision for me. I didn’t want this day to come but if they go to people that will actually use them (for they are meant to be played with after all) I will feel less separation anxiety.

Thanks for listening and I hope to talk to some of you soon.

I also have one other lot I am going to let go of immediately since I don’t have an emotional attachment to them. I picked up some Ballys $1s in Dover two days before that casino rebranded. I had an inside scoop on the rebranding and was able to access 300+ of the brand new Paulson chips as they were taken right out of the boxes. They literally never changed more than 1 hand from factory to me. They are so brand new that they have the colored dust on them still. I’ll include some pictures in this thread at the end to show you. Since they are 100% perfect and never used, I’ll be listing them at $200 a rack. They are live chips still and I think 2x price is fair considering the length I went to get them.

Anyway, talk to you guys soon.

Not pictured: at least one rack of $25s I am still looking around the house for and I swear I have another rack of $5s too but I am still in the process of looking and collecting everything together. All chips are in great condition except for like 10 of the $1s but like I said all defects or quirks will be detailed and documented clearly and photographed.

Booyah! I think it's fantastic you are being transparent and looking to help those complete their sets.

Welcome back to PCF and hopefully you stick around and keep them :)

If not, hopefully you make some good money for the fam!!!
 
Wow, beautiful set. I sure hope you don’t regret letting them go, it sure sounds like you’re still attached to them.
Hopefully it all works out
GLWS!
 
Sorry to hear, never fun to have to sell. Your inbox will be filling up shortly. They don’t sell very often but if I had to guess they’d be at least $3/chip with some of the denoms being more like $4 or $5 or maybe even more.

If I were you, I would do an auction or settle on a price and gather interest for like 24 hours and deal a hand/draw a winner. Because there will probably be a lot of interest.
 
Mike, I just bought a small set of the Inplays (they are supposed to arrive today actually), and I’d likely be very interested in buying your set for use in my weekly game. I am also happy to help others complete their sets and take only what I “need”.

@Lil Tuna
Thanks. My bullet number 5: I just want to give enough time to allow people to see my intention just in case I said something like “if I ever sell, you can have 10 chips” or something. I don’t think anyone will care but I want to honor any promises I made even if made years ago.

Again, if someone offered me 10,000 for it I would still say no. I want to sell for a fair value. This is supposed to be a fun thing and I get they are rare but something that brought me so much joy shouldn’t have a huge price barrier to give someone else joy.

I’ll keep an eye on replies here and my inbox. I am looking and scouring the house now for the remaining chips I KNOW I have lol.
 
Hi Mike

this thread reminds me of the intent of the early days of CT and PCF. The community aspect doesn't seem to be as important in recent years. This my be due to the growth of the site and that leads to capitalism being the driving force behind sales.

This thread is a welcome reminder of this hobby and the community aspect that really attracted me so many years ago.

Its a very welcome thread. Im just so sad for your situation that made this come about.

All the best

Thank you. Don’t worry. Not in the poorhouse yet. But I do need some padding to help secure myself while I try to make some adjustments. Also a car repair with an unknown dollar tag is coming up Tuesday so I’ll know more then. Probably shocks on my car but who knows.
 
I’ll tell you what, I’ve been tearing my house apart looking for those extra chips for the last two days. I know I had two racks of 25s I KNOW I did. Can’t tell you how frustrating it is not being able to find something in your own house. :oops:
 
Hi Mike,

I don't think our times in the hobby have really overlapped but it is always nice to see some older fans of chips coming back even if only for a short time. A lot of knowledge people take for granted isn't picked up by newer people because it just isn't talked about as much and some of the older members aren't around as much. For example you mention the quirks of BCCs, and for a new member like me who is deeply steeped in THC/RHCs and CPCs while holding some reverence for certain TRKs, the BCC era is something I'm not exposed to. It might be worth sharing some of your insights and memories for those chips of that era.

That being said, yes, there is a LOT of money moving around in the classifieds, and there is a lot more money moving around in sets that aren't publicly being sold. I'm sure a lot of folks will be reaching out, some you may know, some you won't. Some folks see the hobby as a way to make money or a way to flip chips to buy more expensive chips, or buying chips to hold as trade bait. Some folks buy sets to do as you said and keep what they need and want to hold on to, and use the rest to help people out in completing sets.

I was given a chance to buy a set of Dunes below market buy a seller who had recognized I wasn't out to make a buck, that I collected and used the sets that I bought, and when I did sell off chips they were at cost and prioritized helping people fill holes. They came with the seller asking that if I ever decided to part with them that they stay within PCF and they go to members at my cost. Two ideas I wholeheartedly agree with. You may want to consider doing the same.

….. and there is a lot more money moving around in sets that aren't publicly being sold.
Oh don’t I know it. I was around when the first thing-that-shall-not-be-named happened but wasn’t included and was never a part of any of the others.

But I have something in my possession that no one has, not even the hardiest of collectors. Literally priceless.

Only like two of you know what I’m talking about and unfortunately I can never divulge what they are but there might be a picture floating out there somewhere on someone’s phone. Oh well…

It’s like knowing the secret to life but can’t tell anyone lol.

If you happen to be a polymer chemist, contact me and we will talk…
 
Wish I was in a place to buy them back. I still remember the day I decided to sell the big cash set and took the sale pics. Glad you were able to scoop that whole lot and they ended up with someone who cherished them! It's a good move you're making, gotta put the family first. People get attached to their chips but the reality is..there are always more chips. Maybe in a few years you'll get the itch again and you can put together a nice custom CPC set. Dibs on samples ;)

It seems like this has been a big decision and is very involved.

I wanted to say that a *lot* of people sell for similar to one of your reasons, their chips don’t see play. This is generally quite the joke, because they turn around and buy more or other chips that also won’t see play and it’s generally just an excuse to cash in on market. That is *very* obviously not the case here.

I think that with that caveat in mind (that the chips should go somewhere to be used), your buyers list will actually be shortened a ton! Something I’ve personally done before is sell chips but with the requirement they see play that month, and new owner post pictures.

I hope that the chips seeing play helps with your need to sell, and of course sorry to see your situation. It’s one many of us have been in just my short years here.

Mike, I just bought a small set of the Inplays (they are supposed to arrive today actually), and I’d likely be very interested in buying your set for use in my weekly game. I am also happy to help others complete their sets and take only what I “need”.

@Lil Tuna

I’d like to personally (for whatever it’s worth) support giving a look towards selling to @Hornet. He has a regular game with locals as well as has games that pcfers drive/fly in to play at.

While he appears to have both a rather intensive collection of sets and the financial standing to buy most any chips he wants, he often has split purchases or even helped other chippers achieve finishing or starting sets at his cost or even cheaper to help them obtain something they otherwise wouldn’t.

Pretty much everything you’re hoping to accomplish, he would help you accomplish.

This is from someone who doesn’t swim in the same circles as hornet, doesn’t talk to him, and does not consider him or his PCF group friends. But I don’t doubt that he’s the perfect fit for who you’re looking for.

Best of luck, look forward to seeing ya when you’ve come out the other side of things.

I’ll second @Hornet as a good buyer. Heck he’s already reached out to @Lil Tuna for some of them so he obviously has the community mindset. Lots of us will get to use the chips and he will even let us low stakes guys use the quarters!

Well shit, @BarrieJ3 , that’s very kind of you to say. Thank you.

Hey Mike,

Definitely appreciate where you're coming from. It's pure and thoughtful. That said, the latest sales are in fact the best representation of what the market price is. You were here early and you took the risk that the chips would lose value. The choice is yours, of course, but there is nothing wrong with taking full profits. Even while taking full profits, you can still help people finish their sets by selling to people who have a track record of slowly putting their set together, to people who felt their chips. Good luck with your sales!
 
Hello Mike, here’s a link to help identify recent listings for for InPlay chips

click here
oh, I'll be honest, I didn't even know what these chips really looked like, was just commenting in the dark. It's really interesting to see how many boat chips are the same edge spots and color combinations as these. Not quite clones, but they are in the family tree.

Not that they need help but I'll pile on that Hornet and liltuna, total class acts.
 
Hey Mike,

Beautiful set and been along time since hearing from you publicly. I must say reading that you’re going to let these go makes me a little sad. I understand completely what this set means to you and I must say I’m in a little disbelief at the moment.

I remember after getting my hands on my first little cash set of these from @Solid Snake how awesome they sound, shuffle and feel. With the help of yourself, @ceramicmike, @Frank, @AK Chip, most recent @natumes and about six years of chasing these, I was able to complete one of my most cherished sets.

I tell people I’d let my WTHCs go before I’d ever let my InPlays go. InPlays are the MOST underrated chips in all of chipping, hands down.
IMG_2849.jpeg

Most recently was able to get the tournament side of the set felted in Vegas for the first time at the Mauler in the Baller meet up.
IMG_4808.jpeg
IMG_4799.jpeg

Last we spoke I had been inquiring with you about the $1000s. A little over a year ago I was able to finally complete that rack with the help of @natumes.
Spent 3 years looking for those last 30 chips to complete the rack and @natumes graciously sold them to me when a tournament set showed up out of no where in the classifieds and he was able to purchase.

After finally getting the tournament chips felted, I realized that I could use another couple barrels of the $1000s which would open up the possibility of having a 3 table tournament with 25000 starting stacks.

Would love the opportunity to buy the $1000s from you but don’t want to jeopardize any potential sale for you either. I’m saying this publicly for the reasons of being openly transparent and opposite the ways of what we won’t mention.

Was great to see @Joe Harris post in the thread as well. Just splashed pots with him in Kansas City this past weekend.
Allyn, I had no idea you once owned some of these chips.

Anyways Mike,
I wish you and your family all the best going forward. I will also mention that @Hornet would give this set a great home if there is interest in those regards.
All the best.
 
Wish I was in a place to buy them back. I still remember the day I decided to sell the big cash set and took the sale pics. Glad you were able to scoop that whole lot and they ended up with someone who cherished them! It's a good move you're making, gotta put the family first. People get attached to their chips but the reality is..there are always more chips. Maybe in a few years you'll get the itch again and you can put together a nice custom CPC set. Dibs on samples ;)
Joe sold me the first bulk of the In Plays and at an extremely good price. He is top notch and I wouldn’t have the set without you.
 
Well, I’m sorry to hear about the situation that put you here, but I have to say I really appreciate your approach to selling these chips and putting the community first. I hope you get every last dollar you deserve from this sale!
