Lol, you sure it wasn't a few seconds? Some cards are around 10-15 cents and others are around 20-25, I think it has to do with how many are in the set, or other random factors. But one thing I am sure of, is there are whackos out there with no life and/or a really nice bot setup, playing trading cards like the stock market and buying all the low-priced outliers like yours, then throwing them up at or just under market value. They be rollin' in copper swimming pools, I'm sure...
Eh, I doubt its that easy. Don't forget valve takes 15%, and it usually ends up being 2 cents on the lower priced things. So if the normal price is 15 cents and you buy for 12 cents then resell at the going rate, you make a grand total of 1 cent selling it.

And everytime I clicked an outlier to get (sold a bunch of cards to get some cards for sets I wanted, like hl2 or portal 2), it was gone before I could get it. So someone is competing against like 500 other people trying to buy that stuff too.
