Sometimes I just list them in ORG for others to get what they need. I have also sold "pick" lots (where I list all the cards and the winner can pick 5, 10, 20, etc. that they want) on eBay to help set collector's finish off a set. I find that the "pick" lots do better than a large bulk lot, as the set collector's don't want to pay for shipping a bunch of cards they don't need. Plus once the auction ends, I can remove the cards that were selected from the list and simply repost the auction.

Project Cupid has raised over 100k over the past five years
but in general, id say: charity. find a local children's hospital or boys and girls club.

I like the charity idea - either send to you, or you think my local Boys and Girls Club would take the cards for what, to give away to local kids?
