Default what to do with crappy autos

In almost every box that gaurentees a certain number of autos, usually atleast 1 or 2 are crappy. My question is, what do you guys do with them? I've been puttind them on ebay, but I'm sick of getting 99 cents for one of my "hits." And sometimes they don't even sell for that cheap. Like in a box of topps, my two autos were David Harris and Charles Scott, two great "hits."
I'm not super greedy and expecting a ton of cash for these, but it seems like getting 50 cents after the ebay and paypal fees is a little low. Do you guys have any tips for what you do with yours? Is checkoutmycards a good option? I've heard about it, but really don't know what it is. I've just got back into collecting a lot this past year, and want to get even deeper back into the game, so any tips would be great.
happy new year everyone!

my suggestion is to just hang onto them and add them to your bucket. then trade them, or sell the crap autos in larger lots for 75 cents a peice and the price adds up!

If there like really crappy, like of players who are not even in the league or haven't done a thing in the league then I usually trade them at the LCS or give them away. Gave away a maurice crum jr. RC auto out of draft edition to this kid I know.

This guy knows what he is talking about. He just sold me some "crappy autos" and some other cards for $10.

If you enjoy the hobby and plan on sticking around and making friends then you should find someone down the road who won't think the autos are "crappy" and you and them can work something out. Heck if anyone ever asks for any of my "crappy autos" I will just give them to them! I pulled a Jerry Hughes auto in my Christmas Prime blaster, thought "hey this is a crappy auto" lol but I got a good bud who collects Colts so it is headed his way!

1994 - Kurt Cobain died/Justin Beiber was born - Not the best year for music.

Truer words have never been spoken.

I still put them on ebay. If I just get the .99 for it, no big deal. Unless I hear or see of someone that wants these cards I just keep them on ebay, eventually someone comes along to buy it. I know it is not a lot, but I'll take the little bit to add to my paypal for buying PC or boxes.
