A license plate, two mini stuffed animals, a stress ball pig from Iowa, and a few MO bookmarks for a measly piece of quartz is a really good trade, 10/10 must not recommend

Someone on our team traded a hat for a nats medal or something. They also traded for a lunchbox which had a usb containing memes and flat earth stuff. I swapped a hat for a thermos.

Entered with: aloha shirt, 2 coconut banks, 2 kukui nut leis

Walked out with: cheese hat, pizza hat, flamingo hat, jester hat (Delaware?), french fry hat, and some small stuff.

Best deal by far was a coconut bank for a cheese hat.

If you trade your nats medal out you don't deserve the medal anyways lol

Nah I think it's the other way around, if you traded for a nats medal then you don't deserve it, but if you earned one legit ad decided to trade it then that's up to them

If you traded for a nats medal then you don't deserve it but if you earned one legit then traded it you still don't deserve it because ur nats medals should be your ultimate prized possession(s) lol
