Default Base cards

What do you guys do with your ever growing piles of base cards? The pile gets bigger and bigger and I don't want them to just go to waste.

Haha, I know MITM!

Looks like the best bet. How do you find people to take them? I haven't seen to many people looking for bases on here.

you can donate them to your local childrens hospital or something of that nature they will take them without question. also i know my LCS will also take them if i don't want them and they donate them to the kids that come into the shop or just throughout the neighborhood

Great idea. I don't know of a LCS or Childrens hospital, but I will look around.

Yep, when I go to my LCS I usually take a little binder or box of cards and when I come across a nice young lad that I feel is deserving I suprise them. Gosh it's suprising sometimes the kids I talk with. Some of them seem more mature than some people on here!

I build base sets and the rest lays around. I usually throw some in with everything I ship.

Going to donate them to the local mission. I figure when I was 10 or 11, I'd be stoked to get a bunch of random cards. Also throwing some numbered stuff in there, just to get them stoked alittle more.

Donating them is easier said than done. I've offered them to children's hospitals, boys and girls clubs, and other things of that nature...they don't want them.
