    As the days go by, I regret scraping most of my Vintage items. I really wish I'd saved alot more than I have because i'm noticing that people keep saying that Vints are soon (A few years) to be worth alot of metal/hats. I dunno. Any thoughts?

    I couldn't care less. I traded most of my doubles away already and i can't say i'll shed a tear over it. I got some good deals on my vintage camera beards/medic masks but i wont fret on what i could have got later down the line in TF2's dying moments.

    People put way to much interest in digital equity already. This stuff doesn't exist and isn't useful, cannot be legally traded for wealth and subsequebtly of no consequence.

    EDIT: Also, as with all collectable items, the value is subjective. Just because someone baught an original winnie-the-poo bear doll from 1926 for 2 million pounds doesn't mean that anyone else gives a shit and/or make its base value to anyone else that amount.

    Can someone please confirm this is a serious thread? [​IMG]

    You're concerned about the value of blue text and an extra word in the title of a virtual item in the future?

    I honestly Couldn't care less about vintage, I just don't want F2P fags who buy a crit-a-cola just to get premium and get a whole pile of vintage weps to end up getting tons of hats for them in 3 years.
