Default Do dealers at card shows like to trade?

There is a card show at the Kansas Sports Hall of Fame here in Wichita today. I dont have alot of funds but have alot of 2011 BC and TC to trade. Will dealers trade or are they only looking for cash?

They will trade but most of them have to be in "their favor" and something they can "move" easily. But, yes they do.

Yes I trade, if it is something that I need for a regular customer or something for my PC. I do not have to have it in my favor, just both parties satisfied...

Most will trade, and many will trade even values if they think they can more easily move whatever they're acquiring

Well, make sure they are things people would want...no commons or base cards. Autos, patches, local players...that's what they want!

Just walk around and ask "do you trade?"...then usually they will say NO or something like "depends on what you got!"....then you show them.

I wouldnt, I would only carry one around. Pick the best cards and put them into a single shoe box. You would have a hard time carrying around two while looking at the dealer's cards!

Some trade fair and some don't. All you have to do is say "no thanks" if you dont't like their offer. Be firm and knowledgeable on what your trading for/away and you will be in good shape.

Yeah, this June i asked someone to trade and they liked my Mike Trout auto, i told him i just pulled it because i was curious to see if he would rip me off. He offered me some Derek Jeter base cards. So then i said, ill trade you a handful of base cards for that Bundy gold auto. He said "no, thats an unfair trade". Then i said "how do you like it" and walked away.

Be sure to know the values of your stuff pre-show. Alot of these dealers see kids as easy targets.

Over the Table dealers are a clan of their own, and I always see them lugging them around....
