I collect them but only from places Ive personally played. I have 39 right now from 10 different states. All collected in the last 3 years.

Mike Tyson had a fight in Memphis around the turn of the century and Tunica Fitzgeralds sponsored and had a set made of him on it.

I'd be interested in getting your Harvey's Bill Cosby to complete my rapist poker chip set. Whatcha want in trade?

I collect, but only from places I’ve visited. They are not nearly as clean as yours.

Love the Pensacola Greyhound track chip!! I played then dealt there from 2010-2016. Those chips are ugly as hell and feel like crap but it brings back memories...

Scrub them with toothpaste and soak them overnight in a little bleach

I try to limit it to places I've personally played also. An Indian casino in my state was closing it's poker room so I thought I'd better run over there and collect a $1 chip: I ran bad, the $1 chip cost me $400 lol

I get mine from the cage, but if they won't sell chips, then I try the poker room or craps table. I'll go through several stacks until I can find some that are in better condition.

If you pick up extras from your local poker rooms / casinos just lPM me and we'll see if we can work out a trade.

Mike - That's exactly how I started. I'd return from Atlantic City with a couple errant chips in my pocket. The next thing I knew I had a collection growing on my dresser. I amassed around 180 chips, just the $1 denominations, before I started trading/collecting with others. Now I have thousands. There are always new rooms opening or established places updating their chips, so I'm always on the hunt for more. PM me if you've got duplicates that you'd like to trade - perhaps for $1 chips that you forgot to pick up from places you've played, or for different designs from those same places.

A damp rag with a little baking soda and elbow grease does the trick.

LOL
That chip is a limited edition produced by Harvey's back in the 2000-2001 timeframe when they hired Cosby as a spokesperson. They produced these 4 other $1 chips, so you'll need all 5 to complete your rapist poker chip set.

We were likely at the same table. You'd remember these oddball chips too:

Of course, the old satellite promo chip. I remember once flopping a FH only to lose to a bigger FH on the river and get stacked...both of us qualify for a promo chip so the dealer calls out 2 full houses, table 14!. Chip runner scurries over and excitedly asks Wow where are the lucky winners?!?! lol
