Remove some hats from circulation; everybody wins.

I feel like we've been around long enough for some hats to be taken out of circulation. With dozens available, the chance of getting the one that you want through normal methods is pretty slim.

Take some hats out of circulation (no drops and no crafting, but still obtainable in store) and I think it would do us all some good. And I'm talking about the old OLD hats; like the first ones that were made.

-Players who want newer hats win because the chance of getting them increases.
-Traders win because their older hats go up in value.
-Valve wins because the older hats are available in store.

Thoughts?

It could work, but I don't think valve will stop there. One thing will lead to another and next thing you know we are buying temporary resistances from the store.

Players who want a nice hat for a fairly cheap price because it's been around for a long time lose.

no. Traders don't need to get richer. Also some of those "old hats" are in the starter packs already and valve wouldn't get richer

Isn't this why we have the Vintage quality?

Well, the only problem I see is that Valve doesn't win for sure. Alot of sales comes from impulse buys from people to impatient to wait, making the new stuff easier to find lowers the chance of that impulse buy occurring.
