Is there any reason to keep Steam trading cards if you're not a collector?

I have some that I could sell and make $2 or $3. Is there any reason not to sell them if I'm not planning on collecting them?

Look at yourself in the mirror, and tell me what a man is without pride. Tell me what a man is without fire in his eyes. Tell me who the f*** you are.

Not really no. Who knows though, maybe if you collect them all, GabeN will give you a bajillion dollars.

If you don't want the emotes, the backgrounds, the coupons for games you never heard of and don't give a **** about, or the badges and levels for your profile, then by all means, sell or trade them to someone who does. If you're in a hurry to get paid for it, sell it for at or a penny below current market price... otherwise you can try selling it for more and hope that demand will increase faster than the supply.

I immediately sell any cards i get for 10 cents. The way I see it, its 10 cents i didn't have. Anyone trying to make money on them is silly.

You sir are the reason why cards go from being worth 30 cents to 10 cents because everyone else follows your example for no reason at all. Just sell it for the current market price if you are in a hurry, or a cent or two more. I will usually sell a card for 2-3 cents over market price within an hour or two, and doing that will constantly increase the price of cards. People who go in and just sell a card for 8 cents ruin the market and it's not even a good strategy. Yeah, it's ten cents you didn't have, but you could just as easily have 29 cents in the exact same amount of time by checking what the card goes for

Made over 5 dollars... hardly 'worthless'. Just not worth a lot. Luckily they are free to acquire if you own the games and they take very little time to sell.

Sounds like you're a bit of a buffoon.

I have made close to 10 dollars on these things. However, I could go to work, and make twice that amount in the time it'd take me to go to the bathroom take a ****.

So no, they're still worthless.
