So since Steam is doing that again, I was thinking it'd be good idea to start this thread. I mean if you are lucky you can craft some ultra-rare Dota 2 item and sell it for 500.000 USD. Or maybe not. In short: If you don't want to spend your money on digital Snow Globes, maybe try trading them here? I'll start:

I'll trade one Number #1 Snow Globe for any other except: 1, 2, 6 or 8.

I'll also trade my Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag #1, for any card except 6 or 8.

Steam name is: Coafi

Ahem, I have two of those Assassin's Creed #1 cards. Let's trade, buddies!

Oh man...we should get @mattbodega on here! Psst sir, sir, sir...yes, you sir, we want you here.

An ultra rare DOTA2 item, huh? Maybe I should actually start crafting. There's no telling how many 'My First RTS By Fisherprice' fans are willing to pawn their mom's Ford Pinto in for a couple of lines of code.

I've just been selling my cards as soon as I get them. Maybe since they're on a steady decline, I'll buy up a set near the end. That is, unless they spike because of the looming deadline to use them.

Yeah, I'm guessing they might go up in value once the deadline gets close.

The Summer Getaway Sale cards have hilariously bottomed out, because there are still tens of thousands of each one available, and I guess interest in crafting that badge has dwindled now that that event is long since over. It was probably smart of Valve to make the cards expire this time, instead of there being a bunch that nobody wants.

#16 Posted by TheStandardToaster (118 posts) -

I have an extra #2 that I will trade for anything other than a #6....

#17 Posted by Sergio (2044 posts) -

I have three #3, one #4, two #5, one #8, and one #9.

I don't care about any of the game items, so I'll trade any card for a non-duplicate. I'll keep trading them (when I'm available) until the sale ends.

#18 Edited by Gruff182 (851 posts) -

A quick question. Were these cards ever really worth much? I've got a tonne of them from games and a past sale. Never really bothered to look into it.

I love that they do these meta things, I just can never be bothered to read through it.

There not worth as much as they used to be, but I earned about 90€ selling all my cards (This includes a card I sold for 20€ during the trading card beta when people were absolutely insane)

#20 Posted by onarum (2011 posts) -

yeah, I got lucky and got a foil card, which I sold for 7 bucks :) I resisted the urge to buy a game with that money and used it to get some cards instead, for many game badges I wanted to complete.

I also ended up trading many of the snowglobe cards instead of buying them, crafted the badge once already, maybe I'll be able to craft it a second time before this is over

#21 Posted by Coafi (1481 posts) -

yo @coafi, I'll give you a trade. Just added you on Steam.

I'll accept that trade whenever Steam settles down. The servers are crazy right now!

#22 Posted by csl316 (8082 posts) -

I have a bunch of snow globes and have no clue what the hell they are.

#23 Posted by Optix12 (610 posts) -

#24 Edited by Management (596 posts) -

I sold a foil snow globe for 1.38 euros. Crazy that people actually use money on that stuff!

#25 Posted by Coafi (1481 posts) -

Crap, I keep getting the #1 card, right now I have 2 (#1) and 2 (#9). I'm still missing (3, 4, 5, 7 & 10). Help me out here, duders.

#36 Posted by Winternet (8002 posts) -

Every snow globe I get, I sell that shit in the marketplace faster than you can say "this makes no sense". I'm basically a multimillionaire at this point.

Yep. I have purchased at least 5 games just off of selling globes and cards. Almost all the games on steam have cards now and if you sell all of them like I do it does not take long to build up that steam wallet.

#38 Edited by Coafi (1481 posts) -

Alright, I'm almost there only missing #4 and #10. I got an extra #3 and #8. Offer me some trades, Steam id: (Coafi).
