Default Why can't Noobs with great pulls afford a camera or scanner?

Perhaps you answered your own question. They're newbs, maybe not just to the Site, but to the hobby as a whole. They don't quite know what's required to take on an active interest in this world, which may include not having the proper equipment to properly show their goods off to the world.

If they're interested in the hobby for collecting and flipping, they'll learn soon enough the value of a scanner. It'll then cross their mind that they can sell one of their sick hits to use toward a scanner, then make the leap.

Edit: Or, as Corbin said, they're not their cards. In that case, banish them to the pits of h3ll.

Hmmmmmm I didn't have one when I first started. Decided to get one cause scanning is easier for me than playing with my digital camera, at least for trading & selling. Maybe we should suggest that a scanner is a requirement to be a member?

Because as a kiddy, a scanner is heavy machinery and every single one of em has a camera phone.

Nothing I hate more than when I click on a sale thread, or a box break thread and there are no pictures. PICS OR GTFO

When it comes to a sales thread, pics are absolutely necessary. Box breaks, not so much unless somebody pulls a killer card.

They're noobs which means they haven't been in the hobby long enough to have made millions busting wax like all of us vets have.

I am not a noob and I have a crappy scanner. I just open boxes for fun and whatever I pull that is good I sell to recoupe as much money as I can and then I buy more boxes. Basically straight up gambling lol
So I don't bother spending the money I don't have or really need to spend on a better scanner. Just my 2 cents

1. They did not pull the card(s).
2. They spend all their money on cards and can't afford one.

No picture is almost as bad as the huge images many post. Please consider using the photobucket thumbnailed IMG link. Pain in the hiney to scroll through a thread of huge images when dumb-dumbs continue to quote the image files.

I dont have a scanner but I work with what I have. I also dont have a phone so I either have to use a mediocre camera or borrow someones phone. When I use the camera Ill take around 6 shots and use the best one.

P.S. I bought a scanner a while back that wasnt compatible with windows 7 and I couldnt return it because it was at a yardsale. So I got turned off to them for a bit, can anyone recommend a good cheap one (around $60)? Idc about it having a printer just need the scanner
