Good idea.

That's a really good idea, how would I get their address to send it to??

Sports card forum has a really good player address database on their website. I use it to send to players and I've had great luck recently even with current players.

This may sound horribly wrong and i dont mean it to at all. But i would love some unwanted common cards, My dad is a teacher and recently started a sports card collecting and trading club, I would love to help him out and these kids who show up often for it.

But donating to a school near by or a YMCA would be an idea, or you could donate them to a church or local charity who needs gifts for young boys and girls for christmas/ other holidays that happen in december.

There was a member doing a Kards for Kids for Kristmas check him out too.

i was actually leaning more towards charity but most they're from the 80's-90's so most kids now-a-days would have no clue who they are. i think i may send some to a few players see if i can get their auto, and the rest list on eBay with 100% going towards childhood cancer or something along those lines

Yeah, I'm donating to cards for kids and they don't want those cards because they have no relevance to the kids.
