I myself have a good number of sketch cards that I would like to sell but no one is buying.
Totally agree, the market is completely flooded. I'm not even a sports card guy (but occasionally take a look at the break forums) but every year there are more and more releases, which waters down everything. It used to be a treat to pull a booklet card but now there are sets built around them.
Large print runs and tons of sets centered around the same characters are why I won't bother with any Marvel sets.
