Default What to do with the shiny stuff

I'm donating 70,000+ Baseball, Basketball, Football & Hockey cards to my elementary school where I volunteer. Afterschool the class of First Graders that I volunteer for, are going to be selling 25 cards for a dollar to the students. They can make up to $2800 for their classroom.

That's what you do with the shiny stuff! California schools are taking a big hit this year thanks to Trump. Help your local school.

I'm a teacher and I appreciate you thinking of the schools. I buy a couple of boxes a year and give out the packs to the kids. Though I'm not big on modern cards, they love them.

Leaving politics aside, that's a great gesture.

I gave over 100,000 cards to the local Ronald McDonald house this last year..... remember that brothers and sisters as well as parents of sick children who stay there need distractions from the day to day medical stuff their family is going through..... so why not let em go through some cards and see what they can find? I purposely did NOT pull out stars and rookies, etc so they can have a little boost to their hunting and maybe some joy!

Funny how no matter how many times it's said to NOT talk politics here, you freakin' liberals always dive right in and take shots at Trump, after eight years of complete silence about Obama. Here's an idea. If the schools need money so badly, why don't you tell the teacher's unions to stop spending untold millions of dollars supporting liberal pieces of crap like Hillary Clinton and instead donate that money to the schools???

You see, Dwyer, if you're going to be douchey and try to shove your pathetic political crap down our throats, there are plenty of people like me who are here to tell you to go eff yourself!!

Infraction given for political talk. Keep it off the board.
