Default Weird Question

I keep noticing people stating that cards are " For sell". Is it just me or isnt it supposed to be "For Sale". I am pretty new to the internet trading and selling thing but is there something I dont know about a card being "For Sell".

You are completely right. There are some plain ignorant people here that dont know the proper use of the word sale or sell.

Yea For "sell" is plain internet illiteracy because, I doubt they'd say to someone in person, "I have this card for sell". Don't worry too much though, it is after all the internet. Where there, their and they're are all used interchangeably in a sentence. Just have to decipher as you read is all!
