Jim and I conducted a Cheap Toy trade/sell during supper friday night over beers. On the table a SUPER RARE Midnight Megan(his) and I RARE UK Blue Alice Island, and we both had cash on hand.
That said, it wasn't really much different than trading over the phone or through emails, but it was certainly more visceral. Over an email you can't sense people's true emotions and not really over the phone either. It was neat, actually trading with Jim in person, and he played his 'cards' well!
Eventually, we did trade and some cash was throw in to make it complete, and we both walked away with a souveneer from CheapToyCon.
Here's some random shots, some taken before and after. Aaron helped to break some of the tension during the standoff where Jim and I pretty much had decided that it wasn't going to work out, by asking Jim to dump his 'floaters' into the his glass of water, then he asked me to drink it. I actually drank some water from the straw and realized I was drinking after Jim, lol.
The Midnight Megan
The color comparison-VERY difficult in the low light of the bar

Russ, you had some famous quotes... My favorite. , '' yeah, I'm talking to you and your Timberland boots''-. What awesome times shawty! I'm ready for 2013!
I didn't say that, or at least I don't rememer saying that, where were we? lol
Maybe the Blue Room? All I remember is walking up there(for some reason), and finding everyone hanging out in the Blue room, and sitting down, and that's the last thing I remember until I started walking back up the stairs to go back downstairs. I do remember you(Chris) kept laughing at me and I couldn't figure out what you were saying, and I think I passed out, lol.
Like the Blair Witch Project, I found these blue room pics on my video camera later while going through my pictures from the trip!
Pointless, drunken shots( I was fffffffffffucked up ;D_
In fact, it looks like this was shot while laying on the ground.
LOL, shawty was hungover BAD, I felt like hurling at McDonalds and laying my head down and sleeping it off , I just tried not to show it. If you'll look at shawty's face, I'm pale as a ghost!!! Shawty inside was thinking , I'm fixing to: all over my Cheap Toy art!

Game8: Marketplace and the collective are probably the biggest groups out there.
Jan 30, 2020 12:24:20 GMT -5
peds: Any group in particular that is worth trying/trustworthy?

Game8: peds I would say check fb. Plenty of good groups there with tons of stuff for sale.

peds: I'm new to the site and kinda new to collecting GPK in general, would ebay be the best choice for older cards? The newer/new one's would be way easier and cheaper to find on a daily basis but I want to start with the older stuff without breaking the bank.
