Trading Tip Stay organized. Possibly the worst thing you could do trading online is to lose track of all your trades. There no worse feeling than trading the same card twice. When you make a trade, write it down. Mark it off you wantlist if you keep one. If you plan on starting a website that lists your traders, do your best to keep it update. Trading online eats up a lot of time. Being disorganized will take up even more in the long run. - tip from www.tradercracks.com
Frequently Asked Question What are short print cards? Any time a card or group of cards are not run with the frequency of a majority of the cards found within a pack-out for a product, then it is a short printed card.
Sometimes, short prints are not planned by the company and are due to production errors, however on most occasions, short printed cards are inserted at more infrequent intervals than the regular cards with a purpose. Collectors love the challenge of finding cards that are more rare. For some, the more rare, the better.
There are two types of planned short print cards: subsets, which are numbered a part of the regular set, and inserts, which are generally higher technology cards of only the best and brightest stars in the game. (Please see sections What are subset cards? and What are insert cards? for more information).
Short printed cards, like subsets and inserts, are generally announced on product packaging with an insertion ratio attached to it or with sequential crash numbering (See What is crash numbering? section). Basically, these cards are more rare than others in the set and they are thus considered "short" or short printed.
