How hard/easy is it to trade/sell at card shows? What do you bring with you (card wise)?

Thanks!

It depends on the card show location and what team has the majority of fans there.

I haven't been to a card show in years. But it can be fairly easy to sell cards if you're willing to take a hit on book value.

I've never had a dealer agree to trade with me at a card show in 12 years, and I've only seen dealers make a trade with someone a handful of times.

I've never had a dealer offer to buy from me at a card show...

Just a wantlist of things I'm after, and a list of card I already have--so I don't shell out for duplicates of what I've already got.

it is extremely easy for me sicne i go to a dealer i have known for about 10 years of my trading life. He will take anything from me. But when it comes to other guys just have the stuff you think they would want. Newer items and that stuff
