Foil from Super Monkey Ball Banana Mania, going to my Castlevania Advance Funds.
What's your biggest card sell?
Comment has been collapsed.
I tried to look for what was my best sell in the market but quickly gave up thanks to just how much my currency has devalued since it got introduced to Steam, trying to calculate what's actually the highest one would take forever.
Since I offer 1:1 same set trades to help people complete their badges I rarely sell cards. When Old School Runescape got it's trading cards I did make boosterpacks to sell the cards.
The best ones were
TzKal-Zuk (foil) - 8,70 euro
Kalphite Queen (foil) - 2,61 euro
About 30ish non-foil cards for an euro each.
Shame those days are over.. ; )
Glad your still trading tho, I dare say you helped me a lot!
THX for that
Happy to help ;)
Sold a Dota 2 regular trading card for about 16€, when the trading cards first dropped.
I sold one for €6.70 a year ago or so. Haven't had one that expensive since.
I think my biggest one was like between 15 and 30 cent for Montaro cards (since the game gives a dogecoin badge).
I usually don't sell for that price at all but it was funny to see the "hype" over those cards x3
My highest: a foil from Gigantic for €13,75
The Curse foil card for Unforgiving-A northern Hymn $4.
Owen Duffer foil card from 9 Clues: The Secret of Serpent Creek $2.62
Nightmares from the Deep 2: Siren's Call rare background made $.45
I felt lucky since i got those cards for playing the game :)
My foil one for €6.70 came from one of those HO games as well. =) Of course I didn't get 6.70 for it since there are fees. Forget what the actual amount was then.
I have a ridiculous amount of games that I haven't played yet, so a ridiculous number of cards to collect. XD
Good luck on getting more valuable cards sold :)
I'm pretty sure I never sold anything higher than €5. Anyway, is there a secret I don't know, how to get more foil cards? Since the introduction of Steam Trading Cards, I've got 3 or 4 foil cards, iirc. Am I just this unlucky?
This motivated me to check my Inventory. I made $15+ (USD) today selling 3 TF2 loot boxes. Nice.
Thanks for your post.
i only get games when they are cheap, on sale, or in bundles. soo my best foil is 2$
I sold boosters for over 8 dollars a pack at one point.
A worthy fund.
$4.11, a foil card called Big White from Don't Disturb.
most of my cards go for a penny or two.
I did recently sell a foil of Snake from Metal Gear Solid for $0.49
I sold a foil quite a while ago for around £5, can't remember the name though since I've played so many. Only one of note I've had.
I'm not 100% sure about the highest but got lucky on 7th of September and sold Aokabuto (Undead Horde Foil Trading Card) for 3,49€. Usually (and they are really rare too to get) I just get foils for less value, around 0,10 - 0,40€.
I think it was a Subnautica foil card, but it didn't go for much (only around 0.45 euros) anyways. I got more money by selling my entire inventory one time and after that I just kind of forgot about it.
Today I sold a "Spartan Fist" foil card for over $12 Canadian! :D
Not know how that translates to normal dollars, but grats!
It's about $10 USD .
I've sold once a Team Fortress hat (that I got for free) for ~$45. It could be up to $90 if I wanted to wait some time but there was last day discount on a game I wanted to buy
I have never had a foil card. Feels like an embarrassment.
I've gotten a half-dozen or so over the years, but every one of them was nearly worthless. Always for a game that no one wants or knows about, which I'm sure is the case for most people. I think the most I got for one was like 10 cents, so don't feel too bad about it.
Sad reality about it, no matter how many you get, most of them are gonna be paper weight coins.
Could be because you are one of those misguided individuals who play their games, you know... to play them and you have less than 10K games in your library because you know... you play games instead of just farming them for virtual items.
I think I had one once. But then again I have a lot of games I never even played yet.
Most of my games just come from stuff like Indiegala Gameplay Giveaway, which those I sure hell don't play, my main scope with those is to get cards. If we talk about wins here, it's a different story, depends if I actually like the game when comparing it with screenshots, recent addition to the I like list is Fallout 4, 200 missions or so though, since its the GOTY version.
I don't have a lot of games, I don't bother buying them as most of the ones I want are expensive, and money doesn't grow on trees at least here in Romania.
Heh doesn't grow on trees anywhere sadly
I sold Trump for £7. That was a weird email to receive. Card wise though, probably a few around £5 but it's very rare.
I sold Trump for £7
I sold Trump for £7
I wouldn't even think he would fetch that sum but it's a good thing you sold him early because he probably won't be worse 10 cents soon :P
Normally my strategy is to only sell cards when the going price is at least .09. If it's exactly .09 I set the price like that, usually I go a penny under the going price if it is .10 or more (unless they are selling fast).
With foils I always check the Market page for the specific card. Foils are always harder to move, and the likelihood of someone pricing/repricing theirs just below yours before you get a buyer is pretty high. If a card has sold for what looks like an asking price in recent history I do my usual penny under. If not or if there hasn't been a sale within the last week I tend to sell for the highest asking price.
A LOT of people gave up on cards and badges since 2FA became a requirement. Card values (especially foils) are very volatile nowadays. A bird in the hand...
AFAIK The old game rare foil trading card market is pretty locked in and its pretty frowned upon to tank a high price when desperate suckers sell cards at less than half of the established trade value, as it tanks the price for the other amount of cards, and there is a campaign to increase the price of rare cards but this market is slightly marred by the fact the many of it is locked in already but can be stimulated by the proper handling/holding of newly minted foils...... I have some more opinions on this that I'll reserve for now.
I don't recall my biggest card sell. I know I've sold a foil or two for over a dollar.
What I do recall is once, years ago, I sold a background for $16. That felt kinda nice. Today, it sells for less than a buck.
Well it's a necro from 9 months by now, but a few weeks ago i sold a card for a similar price though, so thanks.
Doesn't come close to your background though, that's a nice sell. What background was it from?
Oh, sorry, I didn't notice this thread had been necro'd.
It was this:
I looked through my emails. It was June 2016. I got $16.54 after Valve took their cut.
By far the biggest sale I ever did.
Well I got my first foil card from idling cards, the only issue is that it's dogshit and valueless.
I got another one right after I made this comment... looks like I can buy Dishonored now
