There's a charity called "Commons For Kids" that takes in common cards and, well, donates them to kids -- at shelters, underfunded schools, community centers, etc.

Info here: https://commons4kids.org

[If I just caused that other goddamned jingle to get stuck in your head, I apologize.]
Thanks for this. Hopefully, they can handle the million plus cards I'm going to be sending them in the near future (once my wife finishes her massive basement renovation project and I can actually get down there and figure out where my shit got moved to).

Love looking at older cards and seeing old versions of current stadiums, or the now non-existent stadiums
I was watching the Pedro/Clemens 2000 dual where Trot hits the 2 out homer in the 9th.

What struck me the most was how little ads there were. Behind the plate is free from distraction. And always weird to see pre-green monster seats with that crop of players since they were there during the transition.

The game moved so much faster.

Ooooh I like both of those. Always loved those guys.

I wish Ortiz had a better rookie. There’s 3 in the 97 Fleer set.None are that good - and one always has snow damage because of the foil.

Got tired of waiting on UPS, broke down and drove to my local and picked up a Topps Hobby Box, will be opening it as part of my OOTP stream in the morning. Will let you know what the damage is.

Hobby Box contained a #/199 Aaron Nola game used Jersey 1986 Variant black border, and a Chrome #/25 Clemens 1986 orange refractor as big hits. Minor hits were #/299 Scherzer, Acuna, Yordan and Lindor rainbow chrome, and a few foils (Nico Hoerner Future Star, and a couple others).

The Clemens is absolutely sick.

Nice. Curiosity wants me to see the Clemens but I'm scared of the envy.
