This Is Why People Leave The Hobby!
It's not the card companies it's people like this guy who trade cards.He is also a vip and an immortal.If you would like his name please send me a pm.You would think i would have learned because i believe this is the third time but hey always looking to make new trading partners and it still blows up but this one takes the cake.I put out my list and he replies with what he wants.Like i said i remember him from before but still try.He later sends me a list again...I have a WANTLIST but again i take the time and look over it.I find a handful of cards that i don't already have for my collection about $40 worth.So i take some cards from his wantlist and i add a few extra.I was about $4 short and that was without the extras and they were low #'d so they had some value so he was getting over book.He sends me a message"No thanks most of the cards i wanted are not even in the trade and i prefer bigger trades anyway" So here we go again.So i send a message back saying that is all i could find that i needed but if he had a few otherthings i was looking for i'd be happy to throw all those his way.If not thank you for looking.He then later sends me 3 links to a photobucket with gang scans of some of the cards with no description of what he has and says check these.So AGAIN i have to look.Well i work nights and sleep most of the day so if i get on it's for a sec to check messages.So maybe half ago i get some time and check the pictures.I see one that maybe i don't have.So i message and ask if that is a so and so.Like two minutes later i get this "I have no idea.I give up trying to work out a deal with you.have a good day. If i didn't have many trades under my belt and have traded with a look of excellent people on here and other sites and i talked with this guy.I would of went to another site or just plain give up on trading.

Leaving sites won't help. You're going to find the same headaches no matter where you go. The scary trend I am seeing is trading online isn't nearly as popular as it was say 6 years ago. It seems there are a tiny handful of worthwhile sites to trade on anymore. Alot of the sites which used to be great, have dried up and are ghost towns.
Hopefully its not a sign of the hobby. IMO there are only 3 sites with a decent amount of traders on it. When 6 years ago, the number in my mind was 9-10. However, again leaving one site to go to another won't solve anything, most members belong to multiple sites anyways.

I agree with both BGT and Greengoblin that most sites have dried up within the last few years. Don't let one bad apple spoil the bunch if you have person whom is diffcult to trade with and you cant get a deal done just move on. I mean I've dealt with guys who were major pains in my ***, and if we couldn't get a deal done, I walked away. You walk away and you learn from it. I've dealt with alot of great people on this site too and no matter where you go there's always going to be a few that just want to be a pain to be a pain. Don't let them get to you. That's best advice I can give.
