Pinny Pal took advantage of me?
So I kind of feel taken advantage of today, please feel free to chime in with a "yep, you got jacked" or a "no that seems legit" response so I can gauge the pain. So I was at the front of the line for staff pin trading @ PAX South today and there were a lot of Pinny Pals around me talking about everything pins of course. People seemed very friendly and I even heard the occasional "that deal is more in my/your favor let's talk" so I felt pretty safe. I had nothing but extras with me so I wasn't attached to much but I did bring 1 DSB pin to trade. Now I know it's rare but I had never traded before and know jack about value relative or not. As we were about to trade with staff people around me were trading and I had my pins out on my lanyard and the guy behind me saw my DSB and asked what I would be willing to trade for it.
Again I know it's rare but past that no clue so I said "Probably some limited editions I don't know" and he proceeded to show me what he had. Long story short (too late) he offered me a 2015 PAX Prime Polygon and a 2016 PAX East Polygon and I said sure. In my head I thought two LEs for a pin was good but I noticed his hand was shaking pretty bad (wasn't before) when he started to hand over the pins and even though I noticed I felt I had to go through with the trade and no one around me was saying it was a bad trade (they were for many other trades around me).
Fast forward to now I find pinmash and checked the rankings and now feel pretty down for my trade and kinda feel ripped off. Was it because everyone around me were Pinny Pals and they knew each other but not the new guy so why not get a steal of a trade. Maybe it was a good trade and I just don't know enough about what I got in return to know it. I could use some outside input please, thanks for taking the time to read.
