One of the cards I have can fetch almost $100 (seriously) and the thing im wondering is what makes it so valuable? I understand supply and demand comes into play here but what can someone do with this $100 gold card? thats the part I don't understand. Someone enlighten me please. Will these continue to rise in value???
I just looked on the Cakepoker Exchange.
Your right! The value of your card is determined by supply and demand.
If you still have a card from the 2006,2007 series,then I'm guessing you might have a 9,10 or J of any suit.
If you have played on Cake since those years,then you know players can enter tournaments by using those Gold Cards as an entry fee.
Players who play at the higher levels,can also can also cash in a whole deck of 52 cards for many thousands.So if a certain player is missing,say a "10 of Diamonds 2006 series" from they're collection of Gold Cards,then they might be willing to pay a certain price to obtain that particular card.
Here is a link to the "Trends" section of the exchange.If you enter the card that you are holding into the "select card box",it will show you what the last price was paid for that card.
If you wish to sell that card,then click on the "Sell" tab,and it will show you how much players are willing to pay for that card.
(IE) At this moment someone is willing to pay $150 for the 10 of diamonds 2006 series.
As for your card increasing in value,then I would imaging it will.
Try checking it out every few weeks,to see!
Here's the link.Happy trading.
