I need to get rid of some cards!
After a five year period away from baseball cards I started looking through some of my cards last night. I started with a 5000 count box. About half of the box ended up being basketball, hockey, and golf cards. (What was I thinking?) The other half was baseball cards that I had somewhat sorted by player at some point. Most of them are semi stars, but there are a few stars and Hall of Famers. Out of the 5000 cards there are probably only about 50 or so cards that I want to keep, so that leaves me with 4950 cards to get rid of somehow.
I sorted the baseball cards out by player and will post a list if anyone is interested in trading. This box is one of about 6 or 7, 5000 count boxes that I have and then I have a bunch of other boxes as well. Most of the stuff is from 1987 - 2003. (Lot's of high quality stuff, I know.) I would just give it away if it wasn't for the shipping costs. Anyways, please let me know if you are interested in trading. I collect the Diamondbacks and any game/event specific game used cards. Any offer will be accepted. I just want these cards to go to a good home.
I was also wondering if anyone has ever donated cards to a charity before. If you have please let me know what I should do. I just need to minimize my collection.
Here is the list of players. Also, if there is a specific team that you collect let me know. Email me at daniel24303@ gmail.com. Thanks!

As I go through more boxes, I will post additional lists of players for trade.
