Snap! I unboxed the same item, except the effect was purple confetti, which nobody wants...

Apparently the fact that it's level 1 makes it a little more valuable as well.

Yeah, apparently sunbeams was the most popular effect at the time. People told me I could get upwards of $250 for it, but I just settled on 8 buds back when they were worth $20 each.

It's possible to make $40 a year off of TF2 farming (I've personally seen it). Make a farming system (aka multiple accounts idling) and one can potentially make a lot of money.

$40 a year... I'm quitting my day job.

Now, that's $40 an account so let's see how many simultaneous Steam accounts you can run (there are ways).
