Huge "Dealer Button Bazaar" Group Buy!

SALVATORE APODACA - Tuesday, May 02, 2017

Huge "Dealer Button Bazaar" Group Buy! We're taking order now until May 17th. Order here.

Chocked full of old buttons that are out of print or have never been printed before, new buttons and buttons we've only offered on a limited basis.

Just so you understand that there is a community of people who have an obsession with poker chips. It's about the art and construction as much as it is about the game. Folks spend thousands of dollars on different sets of new and used poker chips from manufacturers as well as from real casinos that change their styles of poker chips often or close and auction them off.

Seriously, check out these button designs and you'll see an array of different designs for dealer buttons that are related to all kinds of real and fictional casinos as well as designs that were popular amongst those in the poker chip community - call them aficionados if you must. 

(From left to right, top to bottom) Casablanca Casino, Casino Aztar, Even Stevens, Garden City, Oak Tree, Par-A-Dice Riverboat Casino, Casino Pointe After, Rounders, Terrible's, Casino de Isthmus and President Casino on the Admiral.

Dealer buttons are obviously a collector's passion in some circles. We like to match them to sets that people purchase over the years from actual casinos or group buys for chips that have formed over the years on poker chip forums including Chiptalk, Poker Chip Forum and Home Poker Tourney.

Below are a few more designs we also contributed to the group buy.

Of course the Top Hat & Cane buttons are for the many folks lucky enough to have the World TH&C poker chips that are no longer in print but were very popular for many years.

There have been no group buys for Stardust chips but we plan on releasing some replica chips in the near future for that iconic now closed casino.

There also a few more designs not shown here but below are the Atlantic Club buttons. And the interesting Iron Bank dealer buttons in homage to that great show on television I probably don't have to mention.

This group buy as mentioned above was started on Poker Chip Forum. You can follow the link. Or you can just purchase some of the buttons from our store for a limited time. The link to our Group Buy catalog is right here.

These are just some of the fun things us poker chip enthusiasts do to pass the time. Well, it's my job but you get the idea. It's a passion. 

Enjoy!

Rounders Replica Ceramic Chips Pre-Order NOW!

SALVATORE APODACA - Sunday, August 02, 2015

"Rounders" is a classic of poker cinema in which the character "Teddy KGB" is a Russian gangster who runs an underground poker club. His house chips are branded with a bear in keeping with the Russian theme. The chips made for the film were originally a clay chip and have been replicated many times since the release of the film. We have finally decided to fashion our own version of the design except we went a step further and added high denomination plaques, a bounty button and a dealer button which I'm quite sure have never been offered before.

You can check them all out and pre-order them right here:

As stated in our previous announcement these chips are in the prototype stage which means the design may be tweaked very slightly but if you like the current design and are quite prepared to move forward we can customize a set for you right now. Just send us an email.

Here are the new additions to the set.

A couple of high denomination plaques for the big kids table...


And check out the new bounty and dealer buttons! I love these designs. They scream "red scare". lol.




Rounders Poker Chip Replica Pre-Release Announcement

SALVATORE APODACA - Friday, July 31, 2015

Hey there partners. Or should I say "привет" for you Russian speakers. Check it out. We've finally decided to offer our version of the poker chips used by Teddy KGB in the film "Rounders". That's right. Break out the Oreos. The replicas have originally been done a lot in the clay variety so this is not ground breaking or anything we just wanted to give ceramics fans a chance to have a set as well. Plus because they are ceramic they are fully customizable. If you want to change anything it's your call.

Pre-orders are available at the link below...

http://www.oldwestpokersupplies.com/shop/stock-ceramic-poker-chips/rounders-replicas

These are currently in the prototype phase but you should be able to pre-order them as soon as August 1st. Yes, that's tomorrow. So you can pre-order samples sets and full sets. Send us an email if you have any questions at all. You can also ask us to customize your own version of this famous poker chip design and get it printed before everyone else gets their hands on the stock version. But you're going to have to handle Worm on your own. Keep him away from these beauties. (Such a perfect name for that character by the way.)

We will also be releasing plaques in the square and oval versions, as well as a dealer button. We're going "all in" with this set. Was that too much? lol. I'll update with the links for the pre-orders as soon as they become available. Do svidanya!
