[Costco] Casino grade poker set $20

Bought one from costco today. Pretty good quality for only $20. The cashier lady said it was a hot buy and the original price was $50.

1st of all, these are not casino grade, these are made from ABS plastic.. They are heavier than any casino chips, by about 40%. im a chip of a chip snob, if you are looking for a set just to mess around with , for sure these will do, but you plan to run any type of real game, these are not so good, since anyone can goto costco buy some for $20, and then have a few extra chips to break your balance..

standard clay chips are 10g, so these are heavier than anything at the casino.. Back in the 2000's when the market for these came out, it was americanized to heavier = better.. Somehow 13.5g's became the standard. I wanted a nice set, so i found this site called CHiptalk.net. it had all the info i needed on buying a real set.. Be warned, they are FKN expensive. For a good set, you are looking at about $1/chip... I think thats what i paid, ( only after upgrading my shitty set 4x) but like any collectable these have increased in value to about $4/chip.. I know ill be selling mine soon. Since i never use mine.. I dont see them getting much higher..

heres a sample of my chipsHERE is the link

that's what I figured. no way a full set of clay chips cost 20 bucks. .
