I don't know why, but I was feeling nostalgic and was thinking about the forum Red Paper Clip fiasco. Such a fun concept.

I miss when the forums/game worked together. Trade offers opened the door for so many possibilities.

    Wish they would do like madden and have trades but what you receive becomes untradeable until you send it back to the person who gave it to you. Me and my friends get to share all of our cards.

    I mean at the end of the day no one really lost out on any value because that's the point of a red paper clip. Small incremental upgrades. It just got out of hand lol

    The FIFA team compared to Madden/FIFA mobile is so odd

    Definitely got out of hand, some of the increments got to a very high level!

    Was it TOTS Ribery he ended up getting away with? I can’t quite remember :/

    It was some version of Ribbery. Like 350kish. But I don't think anyone can feel "scammed" because they still got someone of almost equal value in return.

    Back when you could actually interact and trade with other forumers, and everybody dreamt of drawing Zipko in their secret santa group.

    Or the day when Zipko told everyone to put up a bronze for 100k and he'd pick a winner, and he binned all 43.

    The more I think about it, this would be such an amazing idea.

    Bring back trading but the cards you get are unsellable and can't be used in SBCs. Allow SBC/specially cards to be traded too.

    They also would need a caveat where they couldn't be used in SBCs. Otherwise that would be exploited
