Items...
A rant about stranges: First off, there will probably never be things like a strange Botkiller fireaxe; nor kukri as botkillers are signature weapons, not melees (minus the wrench.) Secondly A salvaged crate series 50 is near impossible as we do not have series fifty, furthermore the latest is #55, though this may leave space for #60 slavaged crate. If you have any ideas, please discuss :)

I agree with your part on the botkillers. They are the signature stock weapon.
The crate does not become salvaged - it is made salvaged. We don't need a series 50 for a salvaged crate 50.

I myself can not speck for the Mvm weapon's market as I have no interest in Mvm. As for stranges that come from salvaged crats, I think that they are unragusly overpriced and overrated. The salvaged crates are supposed to be rare I guess. I feel they just inflating the item trade econamy, and in that, making the price of a key much lower then it should be. A key should be worth as much as it can be bought for, not 2.00 refined. Earbuds are increasingly becoming rarer and rarer because there are only so many. Some venders are atempting to bloat the 'bud' econnamy by stockpiling them and selling them when they are worth more. This is a tactic used in the stock market, witch is considered fruad; a criminal office punishable by heavy fines and imprisonment! Now I'm not saying you should throw these people in jail, but something needs to be done to ballence the trade econamy and make it stable. I can tell you now that the steam market will not work for big budget items, as it asks for a percent of your sell and that is unreasonable when you are selling at 150.00 unusual hat/item. Earbuds where a way of turning allot of keys into one item, like a hundered doller bill from a bunch of 1 doller bills. That system is pratical if there where infinate buds, but there are not. However there are infinate unusual hats, witch makes me question something: Why hasn't the price of unusual hats dropped as more and more are unboxed? It's an interesting paradox, the TF2 hat econamy as its called. Indeed.

there are only about 30 of unusual per effect at most, some with only like 2 per effect.

When it comes to the TF2 hat economy, the prices are set soley by the community not by valve. Thats why bill's hats are 8 keys, buds are 27 keys, H.O.U.W.A.R.'s are 10 buds.

You can't really balance the economy when it is player driven. And... about the unusuals. There is a reason why Unusuals don't get cheaper the more we unbox. there are 50,000 buds while there are less than 25,000 unusuals
