On multiple occasions in the past we have highlighted Las Vegas based collector Gregg Fisher’s casino chip and token collecting achievements. Such passion for a hobby or interest certainly stands out from the crowd.
We’re happy to now report that he has once again outdone himself. The following world record has now been approved: ‘The largest collection of casino chips consists of 2,222 items, achieved by Gregg Fisher (USA) , in Las Vegas , Nevada, USA, on 26th September 2021’.
Achieving a Guinness World Record is far from a formality and involves crossing more t’s and dotting more i’s than you could ever imagine. Impressive in its own right, this now makes Gregg a two time Guinness world records holder! It just goes to show what can be achieved through hard work and determination.
January 1st 2023 update… Long time friend of ths site, Gregg has contacted us with the record entry as featured in the 2023 Guinness Book of World Records. He added that only 10 percent of records get into the book, so it really is quite some achievement!
January 18th Update: Stop the press. Gregg has informed us that he’s now purchased a collection of 3,500 to 4,000 pieces (some pictures below). Now that’s dedication to a cause!
