Level 1,000 Snow Globe card

Meet PalmDesert, a Steam power user who just spent $3,160 on Steam Holiday cards. The level 260 Steam user reached level 1,000 on the Snow Globe from this year's Steam Holiday sale, earning him 100,000 XP.

Impressive, given that he's had to collect cards for a ton of games ten times each, all with the holiday cards that are generated through purchases during the sale and community voting. I wonder if he was able to make these purchases purely through selling off the cards he already owned on the marketplace.

At first you may think of him as insane, but looking through his profile you'll see that PalmDesert is just a very passionate gamer. The 32-year-old from Tokyo, Japan owns 2,086 games on Steam, along with 2,058 pieces of DLC in his library.
