When someone finds a card they want, 99% of the time, they don't have any Bradford autographs. And on the bizarre chance they DO have one, they cannot find anything else on my end to equal up the trade.
In the past, I ended up selling my hits on eBay in team lots since I couldn't trade them away. Looks like I may have to do that again soon.

I don't collect anything specific so I know sometimes I'm perceived as hard to deal at times because I look, like, and inquire. I'm on a few boards, some more then others, but the majority of my trades are done here.

I haven't busted boxes in a few months, but I have tons of stuff to add to the org. I just don't have the time to add them anymore. I love to trade and feel like I'm pretty easy to deal with. If I have an auto of a player I don't collect and don't care for, I don't mind moving it for things I want. Even if that means "lesser" cards or multiple cards.
To answer your your original question, I feel it's the "Supercollectors" and the team collectors that don't want anything else other than those players or teams. If you put up a trade thread, but only collect 1 or 2 things, it's going to be difficult to find something you want. Everyone has to be open minded when it comes to trading. Also, there are a lot of new people on here trading and that scares a lot of people off too.
My 2 cents.
