1. Great article. Sorry to hear it didn’t go as planned. I’ve definitely tried to “wing it” selling at a GP before and didn’t do so well. I appreciate how you emphasize planning ahead as I like to do that as well. I have even gone so far as to make a list of vendors, pick out 10-20 Standard, Modern, Legacy, and EDH staples and compared their online buylist prices to see which ones offered the highest prices. I’ve found this to be a very useful strategy as stores that offer low online buy prices tend to offer low in person buy prices.

    • Thanks for the feedback David! I’ll have to try that for the next GP I plan on attending to sell, there were many other circumstances that contributed to it being a bad weekend outside of not selling as much as I’d like, but I wanted to make sure from a selling standpoint that others don’t repeat my mistakes.

  2. Nice read, great that you got it published.

    In the end I was left wondering what was so horrendous though? I assume it’s related to the unshared story? Not sure it’s the best choice to call something horrendous and then not explain what it was.

    • There were several external factors not related to MTG or selling that made the trip an epic failure, I had already went slightly over my word goal and didn’t want to make the article too wordy or go too far off track, hence why I didn’t mention the other horrendous events. I will make sure to specify/clarify those types of items in future articles. Thanks for the constructive feedback!
