  3. Steam Snow Globe Trading cards... "Subject to availability"

I found this a tad funny. How exactly can digital trading cards become unavailable?

Unlike the Summer Cards, these cards disappear from your inventory once the sale ends.

unless you are big into getting steam levels sell them, they'll be in demand like hot cakes for the first week of the sale.

Anyone noticing some odd behaviors with the Market right now? Got a few globes up for sale at a good deal cheaper than the lowest and they're not showing up. I imagine there's some lag putting this stuff up right now?

You get a card for every 3 votes... you get a card when you make a badge, you get a card for every $10 you spend, so yeah, that's plenty of chances to get at least one level in that badge...

the one that's going to suck is the foil badge.. I've got one foil card and I am betting the others are now selling for $8 each or something ridiculous...

Edit: Yep, one is on sale now at $7, another for 10 and #5 is on sale for $18.21.... If these cards DO disappear afterwards then maybe the prices are justified, but I won't pay more than $1 for a foil card... I'm not that crazy.

I like to refer to limited amounts of a digital commodity as FArtS. Forced Artificial Scarcity.

can't wait for the 20th when my steam funds open up, have 3 cards I'd like to put up for sale, heck I'll be happy to get .75 for each of them.
