Why do peope value base cards so much here?
Small rant, but man it is frustrating trying to just pick up base cards of my PC guys. People add them in trades and count them as BV. We all know base cards are almost worthless, but as soon as someone wants to buy some, they become gold. I had, no joke, 3 offers of this
26 base cards for 18 shipped
21 base cards for 10 shipped
And this trade offers that blew me away:
50 base cards for my Steven Stamkos auto
I mean I have no problem buying base cards of my PC. I'll pay the shipping and add on a little. But if base cards were really tradeable by BV, I have 5000 base cards with 2500 BV. Looking for HOF Auto's, Crosby, Kane, Price etc. How many people would REALLY do a trade like that? Maybe it is people trying to take advantage of a new member, but it is a turn off that I get almost insulting offers. Apologize for the rant, maybe I am off base?

I was dealing with the exact same issue recently, I agree 100%! I agree with having some value on base but 26 base cards for $18 is just ridiculous..

Exactly! If I know that a member collects a given player, I almost always throw in all of the base I can find of him!

I go after a lot of 90s RCs more worthless than most base. I use full BV to trade for them, but I refuse to trade 1 $20 for 200 $0.10 cards.
