That seems like a cool website. Are the items pretty good for the money?

On a kind of related note, what is the correct name for those rolling black/red pencils (Steve Forte demonstrates one during the museum tour) and does anyone know where to buy one?

They're called Red and Black Pencil Set.
H.C. Evans (amongst others) made them.

A pair sold at the Syd Radner auction a while back for $130.00.

Not available anywhere new.......but not hard to make if you understand the principle.
Start with the Statler 123-60 Natural Finish pencil, no eraser, high enough quality that the "hexagonal" shape is consistent all the way around.

(it also helps if you've got an airbrush set-up, although a steady hand will work).

I had one of those red/black pencils when I was a kid. I had a lot of fun with that thing. I totally forgot about it until I saw the SF museum tour. The one I had worked by a completely different method than all the others I've heard about.

Trost wrote a little something on the red/black pencil, as well as the spinning tops and rolling logs.

Winchester94, the man in charge of Gambling Collectibles is legit and produces some very fine work. I have a buddy who ordered custom tees from him and they looked great.

Thanks. I have been looking and the stuff looks pretty great. I didn't see the custom t shirts. Are they on that same site?

If I said something stupid or funy I swear it was on accident. Did I miss something?

He hasn't sold t-shirts for a while but I think I have a couple lying around if you'd like to buy. They're somewhat of a rarity though so I can't let them go for less than $70-$90 (depending on your shirt size). PM Me.

I used to be a size 1-4-6 for my t'shirts, but I lost some weight so now I am a 2-3-5.
I hope they are not sold out!
These lucky t-shirts are only so expensive because some gamblers swear they can change your luck. It's been an underground secret for ages.

If you get your t-shirt printed with the same logo of the casino where you plan to play, and wear it to the table, then it is said to be especially lucky!

I don't think there really are any, I think they were messing with me.

That dice doesn't look right. Inless his arm is going through the middle spot of the three side it looks wrong. I wouldn't buy that costume.

This is going too far. I'd really like to be helpful now.

Winchester94 and lisheng,

"Tees," AKA "T's," "tops," "misspots," etc., are dice which do not hold a regular spot pattern. Thus, "custom tees" are dice with spots, logo, and serial numbers however you'd like them to be. This is the service offered by Gambling Collectibles, not custom t-shirts.

Sorry I didn't say it in the first place! I thought the misunderstanding was hysterical so I let it drag out.
