    I managed to spend 0p in the steam sales this year which is a challenge itself .

    but even better I've so far made about £6 off selling stupid cards and backgrounds... that's right people are paying £2 just for a skyrim .jpg.... Valve can do no wrong!


    Just in case people think i'm making it up..

    I sold a witcher 2 sword for $3.35 and the witcher 2 ponytail for $2.93.

    Mad people, bought me a few summer sale games though.

    I spent $5.00 that I had made selling cards on Civ. V Gold Upgrade. I already had the Gods and Kings expansion, but all the other DLCs were worth the expense for me. Other than that I figure I'm good until Christmas at least with what I already have (probably Xmas of 2015 lol).

    It's because it's from the "rare" category. That stuff really does rarely drop.

    I have exactly that background on my profile, it was a drop though, didn't knew it was worth that much. :D

    All these will only become more rare and valuable with time, so the bigger money will be made months from now especially on the limited summer cards/backgrounds/etc. that are not obtainable anymore. :eyebrows:

    It took me 3 hours to work out why Postal didn't work for me, in case you ever come across a solid white screen, disable Afterburner OSD. You may thank me one day.

    Backgrounds and other rewards related to badge crafting will likely keep losing value until the card supply dries up, unfortunately.

    Anyone notice that steam requires a new update daily? Each time I load steam it constantly updates and needs to restart to apply the updates. I've been loading it once a day this week and this happens each day.

    It's the NSA checking to see if your Steam games are legit.

    If you are on the beta path, sure.

    And you're not required to update, it just does it once you first start, if it's already running it won't update unless it's really important.

    But the actual summer sale cards will increase in value with the number of cards on the market thinning up. Maybe not soon, but several months from now, when there will be people that missed the summer badge yet still want to craft it. :banana:

    I'm selling my doubles and buy cards I don't have. Even though I could just sell everything and make some money, I won't because I kind of like things like this. As a kid I used to collect all sorts of cards/stickers, so you could say it's a (bad) habbit for me. But as long as I don't actually add "real" money to my steam walled to just buy cards I'm good (I hope). :)

    edit - check this guy out, lol... http://steamcommunity.com/id/chedburn
