Did the OP ever say how much additional cash he had to put with the Cam to get the box?

I'm not going to say. Whats done is done and I will know in the future to bargain much harder.

I was trying to see if it was really a bad deal or not. If the card sells for $100 on eBay, after fees and shipping it would clear about $85, which is exactly how much he was charging for the box. However, there's a big difference between cash in hand and a trade - cash is king. Every dealer I've ever known has not matched dollar for dollar on a trade. He should be able to move that Cam fairly easily, but there is an inherent risk to taking a trade as opposed to straight cash. That card may linger on his shelf or in his eBay store for months. What if Cam gets popped for a DUI tomorrow or blows out his ACL playing a pick-up game? Every dealer would rather have the cash in hand as opposed to a trade, which is why the percentage on the dollar that they'll offer is less than a straight cash deal.

Did you get the best deal in the world? Probably not. Is the shop owner your buddy looking out for your best interests? Nope. Did he commit the highway robbery that so many on this thread are up in arms about? Unless you threw in a bunch of cash on top of the trade, it seems like a pretty typical LCS trade deal.

If you regularly go to this LCS and you and the shop owner are "buddies" then why would he do something like this to you. If your a long time customer of his you would think he would at least trade you straight up the cam for the box not ask for additional money as well..If you can I would switch card shops..

Still you came out on top so overall it doesn't matter but if the Maya wasn't in that box would you still have been happy about the trade?
You might have gotten an extra $50

So figure the Newton sells for $100. The Archives cost to the owner is about $60. OP paid $80 maybe?

Im going to guess the OP gave the owner the Newton and $20 cash.

Its not like the owner is killing this guy as its being made out. $60 barely dents the rent and other expenses. Plus his customer seems happy and gets a great pull. Sounds like a good day.

Nice hit Vin, I would sell the redemption or at least call tops and see if they have the cards in hand before redeeming

Probably jealousy.

Great hit, OP! I'm certainly envious!

Nice pull! I would take it every day of the week. And who cares how much "extra" you ended up paying for the box, and the free advertising and pub chameleon gets from this, as I'm sure they know you frequent these boards as they do too. In the end you and them are happy.

Did anyone stop to think that maybe money is not a big issue in the ops life and that he loves to bust wax. Maybe he just does not like Cam Newton. I know people that do nothing but bust box after box after box. They never,ever make thier money back but they do it for fun, its a hobby. To some it not always about the money. Who knows why he made the trade, who cares. He was ok with it and thats all that matters. Great pull by the way op.

Congrats on pulling the Mays! Butler isn't too bad either. I say if the OP is happy, that is all that matters.

Thumbs up Nice hit

I was there when Vin (aka. lucky roller) pulled this. He made a good deal on the trade. Nice pull Vin. If was me I would keep the Redemption.

But than again maybe you should trade it up again.
Lol that should keep them going.

I work at a LCS and to clear any confusion we have to make money lol. If a box of Archives which I believe is 90 at the shop and the cam sells for 100 I would give 60 in trade. Which isn't outlandish at all you guys are overreacting. Great pull though that I could see fetch good money. If redeemed and it looked nice I could see 1000+
