Why is the market_hash_name empty from time to time?


Recommended Posts

I'm having some problems with this - not a big deal but I'd still like to know. Somehow some cards I am receiving in a trade don't have a market_hash_name. As far as I know all cards are marketable, so how is it possible that it doesn't have a market_hash_name? Language is set if that matters


Edit: Language is only needed for descriptions right? I'd rather not use it because of all the descriptions it'll load but am not sure if that's actually how it works :P

The language is only needed to get descriptions, yes.


I honestly couldn't tell you why some trading cards would have empty market_hash_names. I know some items in non-Valve games have empty market_hash_names, but trading cards should always have one. Maybe you're getting bad data from Steam when it's being glitchy or something.


Do you have an example of some such cards?
