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.

Alright -- someone give me the short version explanation of what these "Steam Trading Cards" are. I have not been paying attention.

You get cards for playing certain games (games added all the time). Sets of cards unlock small frilly stuff (backgrounds for your profile, etc) and give you XP. XP is what determines your steam level. Cards can be traded or sold.

Not a big deal, but if you have the collector twitch, it's something else to do.


Unless you're someone that feels the need to have every badge for every game it's possible to get one for the cards are useless once you get your Steam level ranking to 10. Once you are level 10 you have a (very small) chance of getting a foil card drop (which are also useless but worth more on the market than the common cards). Outside of that the "levels" are pointless. Selling the cards is a good way to pick up some games for free though. But if you're not one of the first on the market with a new card set you probably won't get much for them.
