Len Miller, who owned the Oceanside Card Club sold me the chips, after the Oceanside closed. Great person to talk to! Maybe someone here knows him. I'm in Wisconsin and my memory from possibly 15 - 17 years ago isn't perfect. (not getting better either) My first scan of my Fatt's $1,000 chips - that I can find - is 2004.
My message here, asking about the Card Club unusual chips, different colors is 2002 which I also got in the box of foreign and odd chips from Mr. Miller at the same time as the Fatt's.
So that puts the Fatt's into my hands Late 2001 or early 2002. I can't find when Oceanside Card Casino closed. But that's where mine came from, maybe ten of them, that's all.
