The Pharaoh's Club poker chip line came to an end in July 2009 when the
original Paulson version was discontinued. Pharaoh's Club chips are one
of the most successful and widely known lines of fantasy casino chips

Inspired by "What are you listening to," I was wondering what your all-time favorite album covers are--any genre, any period? I don't know that any album art would make a good themed poker chip line, but if you could make a set based on album art, what would you use?
BTW, posting pics won't do me any good, so if you would, please give a brief description of the art and explain what you like about it.
It's been so long since I have seen an album cover I have only hazy memories of ones I thought were cool in my youth.... [Read More]
With Paulson's recent decision to quit the home market, I am actively looking for used casino chips that would be good for relabeling. Other than condition, are there any other creteria specific to the chip's sutability for relabeling I should be considering?
