I'm not a dealer at all and will be bringing some of the first milton to trade at the convention. But if someone wanted to by them there is no way I could sell them at $20. I drove from CT to Atlantic City yesterday morning to buy some of the bud ice chips and milton berle chips to take with me. the cost in gas and tolls alone would add $2 per chip i got right off the bat.
If I'm trading with someone they also put the gas,toll ,etc.. prices on to the chips they're trading so it works out even. If i sell them for face it would be like me walking around handing out dollar bills ,very nice but not practical.
I agree that 2 and 3 times mark up is rediculous on a $10 or $20 chip but people shouldn't expect others to foot the expences bill for them.
