Just curious, are all of these 43mm, only some? I can't really tell from the photos.

When I first came to the forum a few months ago, it was to find a custom set of high denom cash chips for a game I’ve been part of for 20+ years, with increasingly high stakes. What started as a university card game, was now played by a few friends a few times a year, even though we’re scattered across the country.

We had been using the same Italian non-denominational plaques for years, just re-assigning values as our game got bigger. I wanted to do something nice for the group, and originally thought a custom set might be a good idea. When I had a chance to handle CPC chips and understand timelines, I opted instead to use Jack Detroit as the main chip, relabeling a couple of others to make the $25k and $100k.

Unfortunately, the group’s immune system coughed up and spat these chips back out. I guess there’s a lot more nostalgia and comfort attached to those plaques than I thought there would be. Plus, they belonged to one of the players’ grandfathers, so there’s that.

And so, since RHC and IHC are just not my personal things as a chipper, I’m providing this opportunity for someone to own this incredible set I’ve put together. It could serve as a really fun high-denom T-100 base tourney set.

Please note: the counts in the pictures are not correct, please refer to the counts below. Also — the relabeled SB $500 is NOT included in this set, but the relabeled BTP T5000 is.

400 x $100 primary
200 x $500 primary
400 x $1000 secondary
200 x $5000 primary
100 x $25000 (BTP T5000 relabeled)

Price for set: $20,000 shipped and insured

(CONUS - international buyers pay shipping and insurance.)


(Will also consider trading for one or more leaded, mint THC sets).

I am looking to sell this as a set to someone who’s looking to kick-start or supercharge their Jacks collection.

If there’s no interest, I might consider splitting, as long as all chips are accounted for. Priority goes to full set buyers. If split, buyers pay shipping.

Split pricing (only selling by racks):

$100 primary: $200 / rack
$500 primary: $1000 / rack
$1000 secondary: $2500 / rack
$5000 primary: $3000 / rack
$25k (BTP relabel): $1000/rack

Wow this is a pretty captivating story, I thoroughly enjoyed reading it! If I was a billionaire i'd scoop these up in a heartbeat!!

If you guys are throwing around those chips for their actual value in a game, then I have to say it's cool to see some billionaires are still down to earth enough to collect a set of chips instead of just buying GPI and making some customs.

This is crazy split pricing on most denoms but probably what you paid to acquire them, sadly. PCF treated you poorly. But I know you didn’t care, just as I didn’t when I was acquiring my chips.

I’m just gonna going to throw this out there: Dibs on 4 racks of $1000’s @ $1800/rack, dibs on 1 rack of $5000’s @ 2200/rack. All or nothing (because it’s no use to me otherwise). Apologies if this offends you.

Doesn't offend me in the slightest. I don't need the money, so in no rush to sell. If someone wants them, they're here :)

FYI tho -- the last 7 sales, auctions or ads on PCF for $1K secondaries average $22.50/chip, so your pricing may be a few months off!

For fairness, pricing adjusted on higher denoms to the average price (rounded to the nearest whole number) from the last 5 sales / auctions.

$1K secondary adjusted to $2300, $5K P adjusted to $2700.

Set price adjusted as well.
