Topic: New to deckbox, let's trade
Just joined a few days ago, working on getting my inventory relatively accurate. It's tough with as many cards as I have.
Until things get fixed in this regard, everything in my current inventory is indeed available for trade. Once I can import my inventory into my tradelist, please only go by my tradelist.
A few things:
-I always use tcgplayer minimum prices when evaluating trade "fairness".
-I am happy to trade for any valuable cards, regardless if they are on my wishlist or not (valuable = over $10 on the low)
-When not trading for cards explicitly on my wishlist, I probably won't trade unless I am gaining ~20% value. This sounds like nothing but a giant ripoff, but two things- one, I'm willing to take any valuable card, some of which are notoriously hard to trade in smaller trading communities; and two, I have a very extensive collection and virtually everything is for trade. I do a large volume of sales online already, and if my trades are not gaining me value I couldn't get just by selling my cards and buying what I was looking for, then all the trade does is add more work for me. This also means that I'm willing to trade cards like Force of Will for, say, three playsets of Kitchen Finks or something like that.
-My inventory is but a fraction of my collection. I have common/uncommon playsets for every set available in standard, and multiple playsets of virtually every nonrare "staple" card for every format. Cursecatcher, Imperious Perfect, Kitchen Finks, Shrine of Burning Rage, Gut Shot, Beast Within, Timely Reinforcements, Counterbalance, Daze, Hymn to Tourach, and more. If there's something you're looking for, just ask.
-I also buy cards, singles or bulk, though not at "full price".
I'm working on my inventory all the time, continue to check back for updates. I try to keep it as detailed and accurate as possible, as many of my cards are foils and I have a number of Japanese/Russian/Italian Legends cards or otherwise unique items...
Just finished sorting out a ton of commons and uncommons. All "staples". 42 Cursecatchers. 56 Unmakes. 14 Daze. 8 Mishra's Factory. Stuff like that. Will be slowly adding it to my inventory, hopefully done by the end of the weekend.
Either the site gets very little traffic anyways, or nobody wants to trade with me. If you have cards that are worth something and want something of mine, go ahead and propose a trade. I'm not always looking to make a profit, sometimes just consolidate value or get rid of excess or whatnot. Let me know you're interested! It is discouraging to spend so much time on my inventory if nobody looks at it.
