Hi Everyone, I will post these items today: 10 sets, 10 single items today, and a Nevada featured chip and 2 California featured chips. Plus, a page of CA chips or a cheap chip page. I am now into full swing of my CA chips hundreds of sets and partial sets available. Their first showing should be completed sometime in October.
Thank you for the tremendous response to the liquidation of my CA collection it is going much better than I expected, and I am not through the first showing, yet.
PS: I started my Sat. postings like I do on weekdays, sorry about that. reg
Years ago while I was doing “My Page-A-Day” I would publish one of these “Chipper Tips”. I am going to try to include one each Saturday, up date it if I feel it needs it. Hopefully, this will still help a few of us remember to do the right thing when the subject matter is in question and folks if I am wrong PLMK, sincerely…Reggie
CHIP TIPS FOR CHIP COLLECTORS
BUY, SELL & TRADE
MANY OF YOU PROBABLY WONDERED IF I WAS A DEALER. THAT IS NOT EVEN CLOSE; WHEN IT COMES TO “CHIPPIN”.
I WOULD HAVE GONE BANKRUPT THE FIRST YEAR I WENT ON THE CHIPBOARD, ADD THE FACT I DO NOT EVEN DO EBAY.
MANY YEARS AGO IN THE COMIC BOOK INDUSTRY, I LEARNED THE FINE ART OF “BUY, SELL & TRADE”. ONCE I MADE THE PLUNGE IN 1995 TO BE A CHIP COLLECTOR, I REALIZED THAT I WAS NOT GOING TO BE ABLE TO AFFORD THE HOBBY OF CHIP COLLECTING WITH OUT SUPPLEMENTING IT WITH SOME SALES AND TRADES.
SO, SOMEWHERE AROUND 1996 I DISCOVERED THE CHIP BOARD, THE BLOG BOARD THAT GREG SUSONG SO CAREFULLY ORGANIZED AND PUT TOGETHER FOR US NOVICE COLLECTORS TO TALK TO EACH OTHER. I IMMEDIATELY SOUGHT OUT THOSE THAT WERE WILLING TO TRADE, AND THAT SEEMED TO WORK VERY WELL FOR ME.
I ALSO REALIZED WHEN TRAVELING I NEEDED TO BUY MORE THAN ONE CHIP TO INCREASE MY TRADER INVENTORY. THE REST OF THE STORY HAS BEEN RECORDED ON THE CHIP BOARD. BTW, MOST CHIP DEALERS WON’T CONSIDER TRADING. HOWEVER, THERE ARE SOME THAT DO, AND THEY GET BOTH MY TRADES & CASH.
I REALIZE HOW HARD IT IS TO GET STARTED ON A LIMITED BUDGET, AND BEING A BLUE COLLAR WORKER MUCH OF MY LIFE I HAVE NEVER HAD A LOT OF MONEY TO POUR INTO MY COLLECTION, SO I IMPROVISED BY, TRADING AND SELLING.
IF ANY ONE IS INTERESTED AND WOULD LIKE TO HEAR HOW I WENT FROM 100 CHIPS TO OVER 10,000 IN LESS THAN 10 YEARS, I WOULD BE HAPPY TO SHARE MY EXPERIENCES AND THOUGHTS.
SINCERELY YOUR TRADER FRIEND, REGGIE
