    This thread is for posting all the great trades you have made.
    THIS IS NOT A TRADING THREAD; IT IS A THREAD ABOUT GREAT TRADES YOU HAVE MADE.
    Now that I got that out of the way....post away!

    I made a great trade yesterday at my local league. The owner of the store had a Crobat Prime for sale that I had been considering buying, so I sat down at a table to think about it. It just so happened that right then a kid came up to be and asked me if I had any Vespiquen UD or Leafeon UD. I just so happened to have extras of both, so I took them out of my binder to show him. "I'll give you my Crobat Prime for both." he said. So I walked away with the Crobat Prime I had been wanting, for just two regular rares! :biggrin:

    The line between a 'great trades' and 'kids I have ripped off' thread is very thin.

    Maybe non-existent.

    Excuse me, but the kid offered the trade, it's not like I said "Hey kid, I'll trade you this awesome vespiquen and leafeon for that so-so Crobat Prime."

    LOL, you think that was an insult?

    You need a thicker skin for when you connect to the internet. You also need to stop taking things personally.

    I never mentioned your trade (hey, at least the cards the kid got were playable).

    I said that a thread where people post 'great trades' can easily become a thread where people boast about rip offs.

    I suppose it could, now that I think about it. I mostly meant it to be a thread about trades that were good for you but not ripping anyone off either. Like "I traded my spare Scizor Prime for a legend piece I needed!".

    I like the idea of this thread. :)
    I'm a collector of Pikachu cards from all over, and made a trade here online for a very cute little Pikachu ☆*, in French!
    I traded Kingdra Prime, RH Rare Candy UL, RH Expert Belt and RH Jumpluff HGSS for it, and he's now in the front page of my Pikachu binder. :D
    I like foreign Piakchus, but the idea of a foreign ☆* never crossed my mind because I thought it'd be so difficult to get. :3

    My kids traded away two Donphan Primes from their deck for a Lucario Lv.X and a promo Feraligater Prime (which we already have a bunch of) at a league. It was the first time they went alone with mom - I was out of town. I wasn't too happy when I heard about that but then breathed a sigh of relief to realize that they didn't trade away anything more valuable...I had just put in a Uxie X as well as finishing a DialgaChomp deck for them.

    Also, my first time ever at a league I traded away Alph Two for three RH common cards for collection purposes. So my trade history is not so great either :)

    Lastly, at that same league, someone came by to look at our trade binder and even though we couldn't work out a trade he just gave us one of the cards we needed (a RH common) just because he had an extra. The value wasn't that much but I thought it was an extremely generous gesture to someone he just met.

    A guy asked for my Rayquaza/Deoxys Legend, and I told him all he had that I liked was 1 of is Uxie Lv.Xs, so I offered to sell it to him for $20, but said nah, and handed me the Uxie. 0.o
