    Back when Darkrai Lv.X first came out and was actually selling for $100 on ebay:

    A guy had a Darkrai Lv.X for trade. I offered him $100 cash for it. He said "No thanks, but can I see your trades?". I showed him them and he wanted to trade my tin Lucario Lv.X for it. I looked at him strangly and then we traded. So... yeah. Try and figure that one out.

    I'm not brilliant at prices, but isn't that unfair on you?

    Also Skitty, $100?? :O That's. . . Just wow I never knew that. To then trade it for a Lucario Lv.X. . . Wierd lol

    It was only selling that high the first week of pre-releases. It went down pretty fast after the set was actually released. I guess it was that high because it was a new Pokemon and had a "big/amazing" attack.

    Either way you look at it- no, not really. From my standpoint as a collector definitely not.

    I sent
    Luxray GL LV.X $70
    Leafeon LV.X $25
    2 RH DCE $24
    2 RH Looker's Investigation $3
    RH Pokemon Communication $8
    6 RH Professor Oak's New Theory $12

    Total $142 current value- these will only drop in value as they are rotated and no one cares about them any more; they will likely fall, collectively, to about the value of just one Victory Medal in fact.

    I get
    Victory Medals
    2006-2007 SPRING $25
    2008-2009 AUTUMN $25
    2008-2009 SPRING $25
    2009-2010 AUTUMN $25
    2009-2010 SPRING $25
    2010-2011 AUTUMN $35-40

    Total Current Value $160-165- these will go up in price over time from a collectible standpoint.

    I agree, getting a bunch of playable cards now that will be rotated for a bunch of promos that will more than likely hold their value..... pretty easy choice for me to.:thumb:

    Going to sticky for now.

    I traded Gengar AR and a sableye for 2 Blaziken fb, and continued to stock up on them. Not as amazing as some other stories, but I have been getting really good trades out of them.

    This sound like an awful trade! Don't Victory Medals usually retail for around $15 each?

    I have a set of starter plushes I am about to Ebay... those should go well...

    I traded Infernape X for Lux X a while back. I told him that he was getting the worse end I could give him something else, and he was just like ... nah.

    But I guess that was karma, because I pulled Lux X out of a box when RR was released, and traded it for Mismagius X... ><

  18. well, I have no great trades to speak of, but the worst trade I have ever seen was when my little brother traded a Uxie lv.X for a promo darkrai (enigma berry one). He had no idea what he was doing and I was more than a little upset.
