I agree that the base card trade is a Bit extreme but basecards r cool. Everyone is always like wow that Stanley cup day with the cup cArd is so beautiful when it actually looks mostly like a basecard.. I actually thought it was a basecard hen I first looked at it..it's only cuz the "Stanley cup day with the cup" insert is worth so much is why people think its a beauty and nice lookin card...if it were a base card and worth a penny and somoene showed it off I doubt that it'd get Any praise ..Hidden Content

I think location has something to do with it as well. I'm in the Greater Vancouver area, I have access to the monthly card show, as do the people in Montreal and Toronto and the other big cities, so I can pick up a stack of 50+ base cards for five bucks and so develops the "worthless" mindset. If you're in Fort Nelson or Medicine Hat or Seattle or Las Vegas then good luck finding a hockey card show every month, all of a sudden those cards are a lot harder to get.
I don't have a problem giving my extra stuff away, if it's not PC it's worthless to me, and I do it on my time and my schedule, AND it helps me from appearing on a future episode of Hoarders............

Another deal that falls through due to people wanting so much for base cards. This is stupid.

Most of the time I use base and low end inserts as just throw ins for fun. I could see high end product base being valued more like Prime or The Cup as compared with OPC.
I think this is one part of a large problem where everyone wants a ton of money or value for their cards but will not give you a dollar for a rare NPDTS card. It doesnt make sense and it is pushing me out of the hobby.PC Players: Martin Brodeur, Travis Zajac, Ozzie Smith, and Enos Slaughter.

I am happy to take low-end inserts for trade for Base Cards. Let me give you an example:
Let's say you needed exactly $60.00 in base cards, each base card priced by it's own BV. I often will trade for a mix of low-end inserts, and base and come in around the $45.00-$50.00 mark, allowing for the difference in the ability to move an insert a little easier.
I've never had a problem in giving the base card trader some extra dollar Leeway. I've always had success moving my base cards in trade on SCF because I am prepared to be fair.
If I don't trade this way, then I sweeten the deal by throwing in 10-15 base for free.

Low-end Game-used does not even sell. I cannot be bothered with an Upper Deck Jersey Card from 2005 onwards of a 4th Line Thumber, they don't even fetch .25 cents.
