    So now I've finished the white, blue, and red sets for Series 3. There seems to be a pretty big increase in scarcity from red to the next color up (green?), so I don't think chasing another set is realistic for me.

    Lots of people are hoarding whites, but I can't see myself trying to get 100 of a particular card just to trade up for one gold.

    My question now is, what next?

    I will definitely try to go for the greens. Although I know it will take a while. Almost done with reds.

    I've decided to get into hoarding and try to accumulate enough whites to "shred" for golds. Interestingly, some people are calling this "prospecting" since you're trying to land gold.

    These are the cards I'm hoarding, trying to trade dupes to accumulate 101 of each.

    (I don't hold out much hope of getting 101 of Padme's belly button, since nobody seems to be trading it.)

    If anyone has any to trade, shoot me an offer. I have white, blue, and some red dupes to trade.

    Thanks!

    I sell all my inserts on eBay and the first choice is that card. I love Natalie Portman so that card is the only one I want since I've never seen star wars.
    Please note: Card collecting is my hobby, not my life. I don't take it that serious and like to keep it fun.

    Every so often they announce which card can be shredded in Smuggler's Den. Then there's a window of only a few hours during which you can shred 100 whites for a gold, so you can't really wait to find out which card and then try to hoard it. During that window, though, the card's trade value spikes. Last night it was Sarco.

    The golds have been ending up with counts in the 300's-400's, but they've only covered a handful of cards so I'm sure as time goes on and more people are hoarding the gold counts will go up.

    It'll be a frenzy when the cards of Rey, "Slave Leia", and Padme's belly button come up. I saw one guy with over 1000 white Padme's!

    [MENTION=2212]Brewer Andy[/MENTION] I accepted one of your trades but it made the other one disappear, cuz I guess some of the same cards were in both, so if you want to propose it again, I'll accept again

    You'll have LOTS of competition for the Leia and Padme cards. They are the two most sought after. I tried collecting white Padme's but quit at around 14 because practically nobody is trading it. I hope you reach 100!!

    Those who are trading them are asking a lot. I'm interested to see what people will want for them when they come up as tradable for gold. Regular characters so far have commanded about 3:1, so Leia and Padme would be more.
