The history of CS:GO skins have been filled with a vast number of trades, possibly numbering in the billions. However, not all players follow Steam’s guidelines, resulting in a ban on trading their items and leaving their inventory inaccessible. Here’s a look at some of the most valuable CS:GO skin inventories that have been banned from trading.
Please note that the inventory pricing information was gathered in February 2023.
7. “EyE” – $159,529
It appears that this Steam account belongs to EyE, the owner of the popular skin gambling site CSGORoll, with a total inventory value exceeding $150,000. It is believed to have been banned due to its connection to the skin site and the actions taken by Valve against those operating such skin gambling sites.
6. “ ” – $292,815
The identity of this user is uncertain, with speculation pointing towards it being a wealthy player or a gambling site bot. Despite its worth of over $300,000, all of its 350+ knives and valuable skins cannot be traded due to the account being banned from playing CS:GO.
5. “我是劳改犯不要打我小心点” – $451,529
Contrary to expectations, this account was never a gambling bot, rather it is reportedly owned by a Chinese collector with an impressive collection of skins. Sadly, the account has been banned from playing Counter-Strike due to cheating, rendering all of its over $450,000 worth of skins untradeable and effectively lost.
4. “Stiffler vgoreaper.gg” – $472,220
Another account, suspected to be owned by the same person who owns the most expensive trade-banned inventory in CS:GO, was been banned for operating as a gambling site bot or storage account. This account boasts an impressive collection of over 400 knives and numerous other rare skins.
3. “Joe CSGORoll.com” – $541,420
Joe held the title for having the most expensive Steam inventory for several years, and he gained notoriety as the former owner of CSGORoll, a popular CS:GO gambling site that was prevalent during the early days of skin betting. This account boasts an impressive collection of over 750 knives and has a staggering value of close to $550,000.
2. “Mcskillet’s best friend” – $739,681
The account has gained a lot of attention due to its intriguing name. Many thought it belonged to the well-known CS:GO Youtuber who passed away in 2018 from a tragic car crash, McSkillet. However, upon further investigation, it was revealed to be an old gambling site bot that was renamed as a joke since McSkillet had operated several skin gambling sites. With a remarkable collection of 550+ knives and over 440 other exceptional skins, the value of its inventory is estimated to be around $750,000.
1. “Maria – vgoreaper.gg” – $914,515
Apparently, the most costly trade-banned Steam account to date. It boasts 29 Dragon Lores, 17 Howls, and more than 380 knives. Based on the name, it appears that it was owned by the owner of a VGO gambling site during its peak in popularity.
VGO was a short-lived alternative to CS:GO skins before websites began using a peer-to-peer trading system. The sheer value of this banned account is both impressive and disheartening, with the skins now permanently lost.
