RE: need to get rid of commons..
a couple of thoughts. You can try and make team lots and trade/sell or donate to children's hospital

I donated the majority of mine and kept a couple thousand to put 7-8 in penny sleeves at a time to be used to protect cards I ship out.

Someone once did that for me on ebay and accidentally sent me a card I needed for a set. The funny part of it all, is that some commons are actually difficult to find, because nobody wants to bother with them. I know my LCS may have a stack of some commons, but they never bother sorting them, and that seems to be pretty common now.

It sure was. It wasn't even a recent common or anything. It was someone from 1984 Topps that I had been looking for. Talk about unlikely.

I bring any doubles my son does not want to the school I teach at and let the kids go through them. If you or a friend work in the school systems let the kids have 'em if you don't want them.

jlandry: anything i get worth less than a dollar gets donated to the Jimmy Fund, or gets put into an ebay auction where 100% goes to the jimmy fund through me and my wife's charity http://www.project-cupid.org

dance like no one is looking, but also, dance like everyone should be looking at you.
truthfully, one leads to the other

RE: need to get rid of commons..
I have the same problem, especially from mid 80's - early 90's. It's a lot of work, but why not mail a card to players and see if they'll autograph and send back? Some guys who have been out of the game might be willing to sign.
