Steam Cards Leave Beta - Summer Sale Hint?

A Steam community post announces that the Steam Trading Cards program will be leaving beta on Wednesday June 26th at 1:00 pm EDT. PCGamesN notes this includes a hint that Valve's annual summer sale may be nearing, as they cap the news with: "Making trading cards available to all Steam users is a step towards an event we think everyone can be excited about..." Thanks VG247.

The prices of cards will only go down, with a massive influx of users gathering them and a sizable portion of those users completely uninterested in the badges. That means they'll just be throwing them up for sale. If you've been participating in the beta and watching the marketplace for how much new cards sell for, they usually start around $4-5 and then slide right on down to less than $1 within a matter of hours. Many games' cards are less than $0.50 each.

It's true that the supply of cards is technically limited (for any game that doesn't allow earning more drops by spending money), but realistically, we will never, ever get to the point where supply dwindles and prices skyrocket. It's more likely that Steam as a service will cease to exist before that happens.
