Nerd Glasses – Rare or Overrated?

Hey animals! This is my second post of today that I just had to make. I've been meaning to for a while, but until today it just slipped my mind.

This story starts out on a dark and stormy night... just a minute ago. After posting, I went online and found a friend of a friend online, who will go unnamed for this anecdote. I was redesigning my panda and went into Jamaa Township to trade for a green nonmem backpack, which as you know went out of stores around June.

I couldn't find anyone with a green backpack, so I went to my friend of a friend, who was already in my den. I asked if he had a backpack, he said no, but I did see he had three nerd glasses sets on trade, so I tried to trade for them.

I knew how unbelievably common they were, but I overpaid a bit: A cream glove, a blue 2nd/3rd AJ b-day cake, and a rare worn– which if you didn't take into account the demand, would have been enough.

Of course, he canceled, which I was actually kind of surprised by, so I asked him what he wanted for them. He said the glasses were worth a beta globe, which I had in my den. 

It's kind of weird because I was told the exact same thing a while ago, but I just shrugged it off as a scam then.

Because I was told this yet again by this friend-of-a-friend, I was getting a little convinced but then again, the last time (and first time I met him) I traded with him, he wanted to trade a common item for the News Crew Winner plaque I had and seemed to not understand why I wouldn't accept.

I tried to tell him that the nerd glasses were only a year old. They weren't worth a globe in the least, but then he told me that the two nerd glasses on his trade with yellow tape around the center were glitches, so they were worth more, i.e. a beta globe.

I said no, and he just up and left, but when I traded him again for them (cream glove, shark fin, rare blue worn) he accepted.

I'm not sure if he was trying to scam me, or just genuinely misinformed. Maybe a combination of the both?

Nerd glasses have just become a really popular item, among nonmems and members alike. And as an item becomes popular, it increases in demand, and therefore in many eyes, increases in rarity.

Just be careful who you're trading, and if something feels unfair, don't accept.

  1. I believe that rare nerd glasses are overrated, and they are not that rare. In a few months they will never be as rare as the fox hats.

    5. I one time trade my nerd glassed with white tape on it for the glitched ones, they accepted I was shocked I don't think he knew they were glitched I feel bad for not telling him that now, but I trade them as a part of my short collar. And btw what is a short black collar worth?

    6. I had the glasses with white tape on them (not the glitched one) and I traded them for the glitched ones I knew this person wouldn't accept and I was shocked when they did! I felt bad for not telling him the ones he had were glitched cuz I don't think he knew, but I used it to help get my short spike. Btw what is a short black spike worth?

    7. They are really rare now might even be rarer than Rare Fox Hats now.

    8. They I think are just as rare as the fox hats, if not more ( fyi, I have been playing this game for 4 yrs+ ). In Jamaa Township, I see Nonmembers AND members asking if so one is " willing to trade their glasses".

    9. at this point the silver tape glasses are worth more than the gold tape glasses

  2. Thank you for the information! I STRONGLY dislike it when I might trade someone fairly for an item, but then they decline and ask for a beta or something of extreme value. Then, of course, people go to my den and ask for all my betas XD
    I have noticed that suddenly, rare nerd glasses are gaining popularity. I traded mine off a while ago, but I'm guessing they have another source... and of course, that is where all the fresh beta items come from: The eagle adventure. (Yeah, I'm probably wrong though)
    Well, sorry for this long comment! Keep calm and Jam On! ~jhana

    1. According to the wikia, fox hats are beta.

    2. No, they're not. They existed during beta testing, but they were rereleased most recently in 2013. Rerelease dates determine rarity more than original release dates.

    3. Rarity is just demand at this point, and actual dates can get muddled sometimes so there's no set rarity for anything. I guess all that matters is what the majority of people would accept because no one really goes and looks at specific dates, but if you want to REALLY prevent any unfair trades then I suggest whenever you're confused just Google search "AJ wiki [ITEM NAME HERE]" The Animal Jam Wiki has a page for every single item complete with release dates and whether it's rare or beta or not. I hope this helped!

    Ugh. I lost my nerd glasses to some spoiled member when she hacked me. I ALSO lost my epic plushie, tan carpet, black beta sword, beta beard, omg so much. I'm still ticked off. I lost much more than that, too. Took all my den betas. ;-; I'd love if someone were KIND ENOUGH to trade me some stuff back.. but nope. The stupid hacker actually left me with some rares and a beta sword that I had, though. NOBODY. BELIEVES. ME.

    1. I'm glad you didn't accept! The glitched are worth 2-3 okay den betas, and non glitched I think are worth a few monday rares, or nm pirate sword, maybe a bit more?

  32. I have to agree that It depends on What you mean. The non glitched nerd are overrated, as non members (or members) are dying for them. as the Glitched ones (That i have) are just to make you look cool as they have a gold touch in the middle. Btw trade me spikes my user is Foxpie24

  33. Somebody traded me a short orange wristband, and a short yellow wristband, along with 5 other rares. I believe the non glitched ones (white tape) are the ones that are worth what you traded for before, a few monday rares. The glitched ones (yellow tape)Are worth 2-3 okay den betas. They used to be worth a short wrist but that depends on the trader. I guess I lucked out, XD.

  34. Someone traded me a brown(Faded red) worn and glitched nerds...

    I accepted it because i was looking for nerd glasses..


    but it was for my orange short (rip)

  35. The glitched nerd glasses are worth MORE then the nonglitched nerd glasses. The nonglitched nerd glasses are worth like one small den beta while the glitched nerd glasses are worth like some spikes.

    ReplyDelete
  36. The glitched nerds have a orangish peach thing over your nose while the nonglitched nerds have white
