2017 Vintage Casino Tournament Seating Sets Available now!!!

SALVATORE APODACA - Tuesday, August 01, 2017

Some of the first and best casinos of early Las Vegas have long since been imploded, sold, built over and just plain forgotten. The nostalgia of those casinos and the famous and infamous characters and events that shaped Las Vegas are still alive though. Collectors, tourists and historians are often more interested in the days of the Rat Pack, the Mafia, Elvis, desegregation, Liberace and the young Wayne Newton.

This seating set group buy is an homage to four of those early and most iconic casinos. 

  • The Aladdin (red)
  • The Pioneer Club (green)
  • The Horseshoe Club (brown)
  • The Stardust (violet)
    

A tournament seating set allows you to fairly assign seats to players at gaming tables. Generally these are used for poker tournaments but they can actually be used for any gaming activity where you need to randomly seat players.

Each table has a marker - a 107mm rectangular plaque - with a casino name and its color scheme. A player can choose from a bag or you can lay all the chips face down at your check-in table. All the backs of all the seating chips are the same so players can't tell which table or seat each chip belongs to. And their choice is made in full view making the seating process fair and transparent.




Along with the seating chips and the table marker each set also includes a matching dealer button. No poker table is complete without a great dealer button.

Two more options include an 82mm High Hand oval plaque and 43mm Bounty chips. Check out those beauties! 

The group buy for this set was started over at the wonderful Poker Chip Forum. If you aren't already became a member go ahead and sign up and explore all the great discussions and debates to had.

You can order these great sets right here on Old West Poker Supplies only for a limited time. And we need your help in meeting the minimum order quantities on all the seating chips so please order before August 15th. You can monitor the progress of the group buy on the forum thread. 

If you have any questions or concerns that I haven't answered here or on the forum then please drop me a line  to oldwestps@gmail.com. Don't forget to order before August 15th and we'll be able to ship the final product in early September.

Thank you for your support!

The Official 2016 WSOP Copag Playing Cards Are Here!

SALVATORE APODACA - Sunday, May 07, 2017


(get Lace cards here) (get Main Event cards here)

With over 6700 entrants in 2016 the popularity of the World Series Of Poker doesn't seem to be waning one bit. And every year we get a new batch of the official cards to sell to the masses. They go pretty quick so you'll probably want to get your hands on them right away. You can put them into play while the 2017 WSOP begins or just keep them in their packaging like so many collectors out there.

Here's the official spiel from the manufacturer...

"Poker enthusiasts will love this 2016 World Series of Poker playing card set. Brand new, sealed and never used, this set is a must-have for any collector. These are the very same 100% plastic playing cards used by all World Series of Poker players who participated in the tournament at the Rio All-Suite Hotel and Casino in Paradise, Nevada. The same cards Qui Nguyen used when he took home $8 million and the coveted bracelet last year."

And don't forget that Copag is still one of the best card manufacturers in the world. Manufactured in Brazil by Copag, these cards are made from Copag's proprietary 100% acetate plastic. Seasoned players know that Copag cards last longer, shuffle better, and deal so fluidly that you'll never want to play with another paper or vinyl card ever again.


Just some News and Updates

SALVATORE APODACA - Thursday, October 01, 2015

We have just listed the sample sets for the Rounders Replicas. That's right. You can now sample them before you place that order for these beauties. Just remember it takes 2-3 weeks for us to fill a larger order so give yourself plenty of time to order your chips before your big tournament 

Next on the agenda, the Kickstarter campaign is completed. We just have to print and ship your goodies. They should ship in about three weeks time right before Halloween.

To celebrate the new marijuana laws in at least three of our states including our beloved Oregon we will be producing a year one legal marijuana commemorative chip. Design should be done in November. I'll keep you updated.

Most of our stock ceramic poker chips are available in 39mm, 43mm and 46mm versions. If you have an interest in this please email us ahead of time. You may want to consider that storage options are limited but not impossible for the larger 43mm and 46mm chips.

We will also be highlighting chip designs for intriguing cities throughout the world that should begin arriving during the holidays. This will include Portland (OR), New York (of course), New Orleans, Austin, Las Vegas, London, Amsterdam, Barcelona, Paris, Rome, etc. We're going to try and do a city design each month. Again, I'll keep you updated.

That's it for the news for now. There's always something brewing around here though. Thanks for reading.
