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.

Adding on to my previous comment... I just found out about the newish trading card booster packs. It's sort of a random prize handed out to random people at some intervals (might be random) who have already received all the free card drops for a game, and will give you three more cards when you open it up. Meaning a) you don't necessarily have to trade or buy cards to complete a badge and b) that's even MORE cards (don't know how many without knowing the rate at which these packs are doled out) to drive the prices even LOWER with time.

I'm not sure if people who have crafted the badges are eligible for booster packs for those games... I'd venture to guess they are, otherwise people would wait to craft a badge just to increase their chances of getting boosters, right? But one thing's for sure... If you're interested in the trading cards at all, make sure you spend the little bit of time (usually less than an hour) playing each game to earn all the drops you can, so you maximize your eligibility for getting boosters.
