I have really never thought of trading this card and since I put this on eBay this summer, that was the first real opportunity to see people actually offer me trades for this card. So I thought maybe ask some real collectors on this site what kind of offer I could get for this card.

This one guy on eBay tried ripping me off with telling me his Bryce Harper was worth 15k. You guys helped me out by telling me its not worth 4k

Obviously you all started asking right away if I would send first and that was when I was very apphensive about that idea. So you all did not let me proceed in any kind of trade activity.

I guarantee most of the people here would be hesitant of sending this card first when they first signed up to this site.
No one blames you for being hesitant to send first to just any member here, but I would think using a moderator as a go between (and who has a vested interest in the site) is very safe. You would be wasting money to try and 'buy' the cards from eachother if that's what you are thinking.
