Here's some on eBay: https://www.ebay.com/i/362428985492?chn=ps

I suppose you've looked online and cant find any originals or knock offs for sell?
Yes, I have looked online. Those you linked are Fives 1.0 slightly different temple design and thus not usable for parts. My search continues....

I should do some digging to contribute to the spirit of the thread. Somewhere I have a WSOP energy drink made to look like a stack of chips.

Re: What is the worst poker collectable from the boom

One time around Christmas I came home and at my front door was 2 boxes left by ups. The first box contained a gaming chair with speakers built into it and the second box contained a whole bunch of swag sweaters, track suit, cards I cant even remember all the stuff. All from ultimate bet. Man they may have cheated people out of their money but they knew how to take care of people. The only thing I think I still have is the ub track suit with the tags still on it since it was like 3x too big for me. I think I'll wear the truck suit to wpt Montreal for a good throw back.

Sick bump btw.

Re: What is the worst poker collectable from the boom

I have both of those hellmuth DVDs lol. I still use the term 'jackal' to this day oddly enough (that he described a certain type of player in one of the clips)

those wpt boxers in the beginning of the thread are pretty sick, too bad they don't seem to exist anymore

Re: What is the worst poker collectable from the boom

One year, I had Truepoker give away 2,000 branded condoms at the WSOP, it offered a code for a 25% "No Deposit" deposit bonus.

In the year of the superuser scandal, they also gave away 2,000 pairs of branded X-ray glasses for live poker.

I may have the worst poker collectable, an autographed Ace of Spades I got from Amarillo Slim, but that was about 30 years before the boom.

The "Stars of Poker" bobbleheads made me do some searching. I didn't find what I was looking for (the Dave Foley and Phil Gordon dolls that Chris Kattan gave to the Celebrity Poker Showdown hosts), but it did lead me to this:

The astounding part is not that such a thing exists, but that the page is still live.
LOL I can't believe this link is still alive.

Re: What is the worst poker collectable from the boom

Great thread and solid bump.

Ok,ok it's a stretch calling it a collectible but that's why it's called the worst.
I have a bunch of those shirts and I'd guess more than half are Artie Cobb knockouts, mostly from 24+2 nightly Stud8/HORSE/Razz etc MTTs.

They're decent shirts I still throw on for fun when I'm grinding in a dark bedroom, so it's hard to call them the worst compared to most of the stuff in this thread (LMAO at Lindgren hockey jersey).

But yeah, Artie was the man. One of the few red pros who did it right, IMO. With the combo of red pro bonuses and playing in games he was still +EV in, he grinded a nice little side income while enjoying retirement. He was always super friendly and chatted with anyone who wanted to.

Chris Ferguson and Howard Lederer signed playing cards, matted on green felt and accompanied by a photo of the Full Tilt gang at their peak.

Do I win?

HI STLNolaWoj:

A slight deviation from this thread's theme, but the idea of animals representing poker players in a poker book was not original with Phil Hellmuth. It first appeared in The Secret to Winning Big in Tournament Poker by Ken Buntjer which was published in 1994. The animals were The Donkey, The Sheep, The Owl, The Jackass, The Lion, The Chameleon, and The Alligator, with The Alligator being the best player.

Here's a link to the Amazon page for this book: https://www.amazon.com/Secret-Winnin...ds=ken+buntjer

Best wishes,
Mason

Those bobbleheads were a work of art. An exact replica.

I’ve got a set of the full tilt poker chips. I don’t see them often as they are in a closet, but when I do I crack up each time.

Re: What is the worst poker collectable from the boom

I have heard from numerous sources, that David Williams was not too happy with how they did his feet for that bobblehead. I do not really see much of a problem myself but he is the expert.
