Vintage Earbuds, Painted Cow Mangler, many more question about expensive items.
Why does earbuds worth so much? It doesn't look that nice, it just have an effect, like Mutton Chop. Vintage Earbuds, how can it be vintage? I though it was released before the Mann. Co Eco. Painted cow mangler, I heard it can be any color, and the laser is also different, how much does it actually cost? Self-Made Key on the community market, I saw a guy name Gold N Platinum posted it for sale, for like $250. I never knew that keys were community made...

Something is worth what the next guy will pay. The fact that those items are rare is what makes them more valuable.

There are team captain unusual hats worth over 100 buds. There are people that are willing to pay thousands of real dollars for those items. Why? Cause they can...

Earbuds are usually just used as currency for traders. They also can't be obtained anymore too.
Vintage Earbuds were obtained if you deleted it and asked Steam Support for it back. They would give it back in vintage quality. That's how other items that can't be vintage were obtained. They won't do it now though.
I think that the cow mangler could had only been painted in team colors. I don't think that the color of the laser is different though. Apperantly they are very rare.
The keys were given out to the contributors for an update. Those who had items released in the special crates recieved self-made quality of the keys their crates were in. When the crate and keys expired, their keys turned into a regular self-made key that could be traded.

I wish I can go back in time, buy a mac, make a TF2, delete it, and go to steam support to ask for it back. What's the pleading to get it back post from the support? I wanna see it. :3

If we could go back in time, none of the stuff mentioned would be valuable cause everyone would have gotten one, knowing what is now known.
MAEBATAME Feb 11, 2013 @ 6:03pm 
What if I steals the first machine to go back in time to my house, and use it first? :3

the paintable cow was a bug when it came out allowing it to be painted (a bit like puttin underwater kill parts on a flamethower.

vintage earbuds (and vintage bills/max heads ) were made if the perosn deleted the item and sends in a bug report to valve askin for it back (might of been haxed or done it by mastake)

and the self made key is from someone that made a item that came in its own box (like the last helloween items) they get the items and a key

the items cost alot caz theres not alot out there. the earbuds and bills cast alot caz thers not alot out there and there used for priceing ( it goes items, metal, keys, bills, buds)

And the bill's hat also, what was the L4D 2 pre-order price? Was it 19.99? Because the Bill worth more then that...
Smugleaf Feb 11, 2013 @ 6:08pm 
Bill's hat is worth more because it can't be obtained anymore unless you trade for it. Traders also mainly use it for currency too.
MAEBATAME Feb 11, 2013 @ 6:10pm 
Oh, ok. Also... Why does ppl even delete their stuff and ask for it again in Support..
Smugleaf Feb 11, 2013 @ 6:11pm 
Before, it was to take advantage of them giving items out in vintage quality. If there are people that still do it now, they probably deleted their items on accident.
