[QUOTE=WDWmemories;923142]I don’t know much about pin trading… Are some pins so much more valuable than others that people take advantage of others???[/QUOTE]
yes, definitely. I have seen one of those guys trade badly… it’wasn’t a huge deal and he made sure that the kid came away “happy” – but what he had done was trade a new plain pin, the kind that retails for less than $7, for a double-layered one with glitter, which retails for almost double the price.
That was a long time ago, and both were new pins. But where I get really nervous is the older really rare pins (like the Whimsical Giraffe) would be easy pickings for one of those guys… a kid would never stand a chance in such a deal.
You should see some of the prices on eBay – a really rare pin can go for a LOT!
