Recently, I sent an offer to a new member who had 0 trades. I wanted ONE card, but they wanted to send me ALL of their Edge (from $.60 base to $4 inserts) when they countered. Now, this wouldn't have been a problem if the trade were "like for like", however the avg price per card was $15/$3 in their favor. I told this person I was really only interested in '99 Edgerrin and that I'd only trade for the card I needed, then we could discuss a bulk trade. We went ahead with the deal, all was well.
We've gone back and forth at least a dozen times, I've mentioned at least a handful of times that I'm not really interested in the trade, but he continues to push it. Today it came to a head when I declined for about the sixth time. He asked that I send the original '99 back as he only made that trade under the assumption I would accept his bulk trade which he seemed to think was mutually beneficial.
I'm all for helping someone get cards they want, but not when they're cards I also want... or when I have to trade down to do so. I'd move some of them for the right '99 Edge, but would rather hang on to them than accept a bunch of cards that (while I do have them marked as want) aren't really priorities for my collection. Something that seems to boggle this trader's mind.
