I'm guessing a lot of people have a s***load of cards to sell by this holiday season.

Why wouldn't they? It's not like they ever made it seem like a temporary change.

Actually, no...they're probably selling them as they go rather than hoarding them for whatever reason. The "Card thing" wasn't a temporary promotion. It was something they decided to do before the steam sale and just wrapped it around the steam sale to bring it to the forefront.

Now if you're talking about somehow people still trying to sell cards from the steam sale, well, yeah... last time I looked there was still a huge number of those cards on sale at the steam market and they're not going up in price like some people wanted. There's still 50,000-60,000 cards of each type on sale, and the average price is around a dime... I would think that most everyone who cared already has a level 5 badge, but apparently they're still buying/selling around 30-100 cards per day.

Then again, that's 30-100 out of a stock of 50-60K... that could go on for a few years at that rate.

I love the Steam cards.

I have earned 10 bucks back off cards that will lower the price of already discounted games in Steam.

There are thousands of geeks hungry to take them off my hands within seconds of posting them since Steam started doing this. The real question is why the hell would you collect this crap?

Who cares why? Let the "geeks" keep buying them and I'll keep getting games for stupid cheap.

Because you occasionally get discount vouchers/free games for completing sets?
