I think the big downfall is that a lot of people don't do trades to build their personal collections. From my experiences traders that involve sell value get the cards to sell. They aren't looking to keep the cards. For some this hobby isn't a hobby and more of a way to make money
When I trade I look to build my pc so I dont worry about sell value. With that being said I have began to understand why someone wouldnt want to trade a 100 dollar Jordan for a 100 dollar say kg card when the values of sales would be very lopsided.
