I'd guess between $10-15, though I have spent some to buy cards for my favorite games

I tried selling one card... for $0.95 but I think the market value on it went down significantly so it didn't sell.

So that would bring my total sales to $0.00 :P

Look at what the cards are selling for and just undercut the price by 1 cent and you can literally sell it in under 30 seconds

Only a few bucks. Currently have ~ 20 summer cards and I'm just holding on to them, waiting for the day when collectors will pay a few bucks per card (yeah I know that might be a while).

I undercut one of the cards about 10 cents and it sold in about 3 seconds.

Probably about $5 or so. I won't lie, it has made me play some games I hadn't played in a while like Saint's Row 3 and Binding of Isaac. I made like $3 off of stuff in TF2 I never use.

During the beta, I was selling the cards for roughly $0.80 each.

During the sale, I made around $6.

So you made the same per hour as some 7 year old cobbling shoes in a sweatshop in Indonesia?

Not time well spent.

The cards I have all went from around 2 dollars to 10 cents, probably because of the summer sale.

DoTA 2 and TF2 are where you can make decent money ... the cards not so much. Ive had items that sell for £10+, a item i had with a t-shirt promo sold for £25. there is a crate that drops in TF2 which is rare and it goes for £5 each ... had 3 of them.

I'm guessing Steam would have told me if I had made any? I put some on the market, but I don't think anyone bothered, lol.

Sold a bunch just now and made £1.20 so that's £3.05 in total... Not bad since I can buy a indie game that's on sale with this.

I honestly lost count how much money I've made, but I also lost count how much money I spent buying cards to craft my badges.  I sell rare/uncommon emoticons and backgrounds for fair high price based on the market value so I recover alot of my money sometimes.  I'm looking at the bigger picture though and in it for the long run, having a higher steam rating to increase my chances, where I will profit from booster packs, foils, etc and start netting profit.

Higher steam level increases your drop rating for rare stuff.  I personally noticed now that im in the 30's as far as steam level that my booster pack and foil card acquirement has increased since I leveled up.  Here, this is taken directly from the steam trading card FAQ.

Once eligible, your Steam Level increases your rate of receiving a booster pack drop:

  • Level 10: +20% increase in your drop rate
  • Level 20: +40% increase in your drop rate
  • Level 30: +60% increase in your drop rate
  • Level 40: +80% increase in your drop rate
  • Level 50: +100% increase in your drop rate (i.e. the rate has doubled)
  • Etc.
