I don't trade any on any of the sites so that doesn't come into play for me in my choices of sites. I get on to see all of the topics and threads that people are commenting on(such as this one). I also love to see the box breaks section and gauge what I want to purchase on how the different products look. This site has 1/4th the box breaks of most of the other sites, and that is my biggest issue. I'm not hating on the site but I am a realist. If this site was faster, attracted more people, more topics, more box breaks then it would regain its stature as the #1 sports cards site. Sounds to me like a big majority of you guys enjoy the trading on the beckett site so that definitely is a good start. I also have one key point that Beckett could dominate on over ALL of the competition............improve the set registry and integrate it with the forums.

Also, Beckett users seem to be an exceptionally helpful group of people. None of the trolls and nonsense you see in other corners of the interwebs.

Because of the tedious nature of entering cards into organize, a lot of people tend not to enter those 30c base cards and mark them FT. I've had more luck finishing out sets when I need only those last 5-10 common cards on other sites than here.
