IF you hit Sketch cards, HIT ME UP: cujobyte29

I'm trading hard for the ones I really like. There are 3 of us on that site fighting for sketch cards at that point and at least let me counter any offers, if I like the sketch, I'll beat any offer!!!

My apologies to anyone who wrote me the last 48 hrs. I was in a manic state of trading and doing nothing else. I'd like to state it was worth it, but I nearly lost my mind (and wallet) so no card is worth that lol.

Finally getting it tho. Not sure why i'm getting 9/10 but don't really care, and hoping UD still resolves the first issue, as I should be getting 2 of them lol.

Congrats on completing not just one, but two orange sets in order to get your quad auto Nick!

I wouldn't do it. Pelech is a no-name player (a D-man for the Isles doesn't have a lot of value to be honest). The folks chasing the Alien quad will probably give you a better offer (like a couple of Marvel base) for that stack of base you have. I would much rather have a couple of Marvel base cards than a YG of an Isles D. Traders there are holding their Alien base like they're gold right now because they know some people are chasing achievements. I was offered 8 base for 2 Marvel Tier 1 What If's. Or 75 base for 7 Tier 1 What If's.

I wouldn't do that deal at all because of those reasons.

People aren't the brightest with their alien base right now.

The cards are worthless, completely worthless, unless you are chasing the achievement. If you aren't chasing it, they are worthless before and even more worthless after the 7 quads left are claimed. It's not like the marvel high numbers which will still have plenty of value even after the achievement window closes in September. People are asking way way to much for base. The quad is worth maybe 600-800 I am guessing? You need 11k base for the achievement, that means every thousand base should be worth no more than maybe $75 and that's on the high end if the quad pulls $800.

I have people trying to trade me 100 base for a $50+ sketch. I have blocked more idiots in the last couple days over alien base cards than the whole month of trading marvel

Agreed. I never had a strong opinion about sports collectors being in non-sports until doing some trading on e-packs. Now I just shake my head about it. I don't think I have unreasonable expectations either. It's just stunning some of the crazy crap the sports folks will try and float over there. Like those who aren't on that site just don't understand how consistently bad so many of those trade proposals really are. Any trading I accomplish there is almost exclusively with BO members. The hockey first traders are very difficult to work with.

Yeah, the sports folks are offering me some terrible trades. The other day I got an offer of 8 alien base cards for 3 What If cards... 1 tier 1 and 2 tier 2.

I'm a sports collector and a non-sports collector... I think I have the common sense to know what a reasonable offer is across platforms... I'm thinking sports collector or not, some people on the site or just a-holes... One guy offered me 2 no name MVP rookies for my 100 red foil Aliens...

Maybe I didn't make it clear originally, but BO members, sports or non-sports, were the only ones I could trade with there. I'm thankful for all the BO members that helped me. I was specifically referring to the sports collectors exclusive to the e-packs site with my comments (ie non-BO members). Sorry if I didn't make that clear.

Have a few sketches (nothing crazy at all) but am going to move the balance of the Alien stuff that I have left for MM. My COMC is my same name on here.

Congrats on that second quad Cujobyte! You earned it

So I just hit a BEAUTIFUL George Vega Sketch! Check it out if you get the chance.

I would lean towards selling but trades for character autos are a possibility.

Opened some packs this morning and got this sweet sketch...



I'm torn as to whether to go for the quad. I have about 4 of each red so I'm half way there but it may be too much effort to trade for base. Anyone want to trade theirs?

I'm kneepain.

I need to get away from this stuff. Two more packs, another wasted 11.98. All my base (68) and inserts are available, but I doubt I have enough to get anything worthwhile in trade. I feel like an idiot for having dropped even this relatively small amount of money on the packs. Stupid addictive personality...

I'm unamuzd1 on the UD site.

Just wanted to thank Cujobyte for a couple of great trades! He was NOT kidding when he sais he will trade well for sketches that he likes.

I would advise that if anyone hits a sketch and is considering trading it that they hit that young man up first!
