Fall is here again, and with it this year, another Phish fall tour, culminating in a 4 night Las Vegas run for Halloween! Sure to be one of the best runs of the year, Gay Anastasio has once again chosen to celebrate the festivities in poker chip form.
A limited edition of only 300, both sides of this chip feature artwork by the multi-talented Michael Babb (Jiggs Lot)! Ceramic pro quality chips, these are the same kind that casinos use. Graphics are printed right on the chip, no stickers.
While Gay was not certain on doing a chip for this run, inspiration struck him one morning after the Dicks shows in September. Fortunes can be made or lost in Sin City, but after 4 nights there, I think it is safe to say… we are all gonna get our ass handed to us! I had a rough idea for the jackass, brought to life by Jiggs, but what kind of an establishment would use chips like these? On the front we welcome you to “Kitty Malone’s Cabaret and Casino”! Have a drink, play a game, watch the dancers! The smell of mule thick in the air! On the back, that same jackass of a mule kicks you out of town after draining you dry. Order here.
Great thanks and appreciation goes to the following artists who were featured on PhanArt over August, September and October! With these donations, PhanArt and Friends has raised more than $3,000 for the 2013 calendar year and over $12,000 since August 2009 for The Mockingbird Foundation. Great thanks goes to the dozens of artists and supportive patrons who made this possible. Through their incredible generosity and spreading their art on PhanArt, these donations to The Mockingbird Foundation will help to promote music education throughout the country.

Jay Anastasio has the first Atlantic City art of the year on PhanArt, and it’s a unique and well-priced creation. Jay shares: “I wanted to do these chips in 2010, the first time Phish visited Atlantic City for Halloween, but a lack of funds kept my idea from happening. This time, I was better prepared and I am very happy with how these came out! I am proud to introduce to you, my inaugural piece of show merchandise! These are casino quality chips, no cheap plastic chip with stickers here. Each chip is 10 grams of edge to edge color, unified ceramic, built to last forever.”
“This Ghost is Bustin’ out and ready to get his groove on for 3 nights in Atlantic City, NJ! To commemorate one of the bands favorite holidays, I present to you this Limited Edition poker chip. Phish + Fall + Halloween = PHALLOWEEN! The denomination is 30, to honor the number of years our favorite band has been around. Venue, city, and dates are all featured over both sides. These will be authentic casino style chips, 39mm wide(about 1.5 inches), 3mm thick, made of ceramic and weigh 10 grams each. They are printed on the front and the back, with edge band detail. You can order below, but I will of course be in Atlantic City to sell these in person. Only 300 made! Cost is $10 each, plus shipping.”
