RE: ***HELP*** Looking to donate 50,000 baseball cards to the children/ less fortunate
I donated mine in a Children's Hospital. It is so much better to see the smiling faces and to hear the many thanks from children. It is a bonus to hear the many thanks of family members. It is such a great feeling to know that some of the children are actually fans of some of the players. Boy's and Girl's Clubs is great too. Just give them to children, anywhere and anytime you have the opportunity. Smile

I love to stop at Goodwill to shop. Get great deals on kids clothing and evry once in a while find some gem items.

See I didn't know all that. I thought they take the items and give them to the needy. I never shopped at a goodwill until a friend of mine told me about it. When I saw them selling the cards. I felt like they were out to make a prophit. I wanted the cards to go to some kids who would use them. Didn't expect to see price tags on them.lol

About 2 weeks later I walked into a goodwill store looking for antiques and found my baseball cards being sold. 1.00 for 2 cards. I asked the cashier about them donating and she says no, we sell the goods in store. I then told her that 1.00 for two cards is overpriced.
I'll do rainbow babies and children hospital next time.

I am the resident super collector of David Wright. I also collect Jose Reyes, Michael Jordan, Brett Favre, Antoine Walker and Rookies.
