Default OT- what to do with your 1987 commons...

So last week i started making some room, putting about 1500 cards in a trash bag to toss out. I hate throwing out cards but i need room.

Rewind to last year for a minute, i had given my 6 year old son 200 cards to play with... he had no interest, cat chewed most up other crumbled, lol And the cards were tossed out in a few days.

Ok, back to last week, 1500 cards in a bag, my kid comes home for school, so before tossing them i ask, u want some cards, he says yes!

Ok great, how am i gonna get him interested and learning??

So i deside to ask him if he wants to " organize the cards" he was very excited!

We just made piles by team, and wraped each with rubber bands, he learned team names and loved it. Now every night he wants to keep "organizing the cards"

Good 1st step in teaching kids about cards ! Hope this helps anyone else with kids and some crappy 80's cards lol

I also took a few cards, rose, mcgwire, clemens, and reprinted babe ruths and put in top loders and told him these are the more special cards.

My 7 year old only ever wants what I am on the process of throwing or giving away. "Dad, you're getting rid of that?!"

That said, please don't throw baseball cards away. There are many great places to donate them to and many great kids that will appticiate them. I list mine on Craigslist and they are typically gone by the end of the day.

We always accept donations of all sorts for our Adat Chaverim show held twice a year (and yes Leon has been there and can vouch for what we do)

And we can provide tax receipts

X2, do not throw out your old/unwanted cards, donate them.

Lots of places around to do so or phone/ask a hospital, Charity, etc, to see if there is any interest in them.

I took all of mine to the children's ward at the local hospital.

There are always kids there that can use some cheering up.

I used to give all mine to a guy that teaches at a Colony school in Clark. I have not seen him for a while so have to find someone else to give them to as I have a bunch to get rid of again.

Don't throw them out, they could be worth millions one day!

I posted what I had to give away on various trade sites like this one, asked for help with postage and got rid of them all. One batch went to a restaurant in Ohio who gives them away to kids that come in to eat with their parents.
