My little brother who is almost 6 loves superheroes and I might be interested that is if he doesnt just get them and take them out and just leave them somewhere and not look at them.

This seemed to come out of nowhere. Did someone offer to make that trade with you young fella? Maybe he is also a kid who can't read very well?

This is a great idea...If anybody runs out of cards, let me know. All I have are football cards, but will send out packages to the kids.

ifish73 is totally legit with this. My daughter just received some cards from him today. By the way ifish73, she especially loves the Topps Heritage cards because they had pink and purple borders and the Marvel cards with heroines, since they are just like her....female. You just never know what a kid is going to like the most. Thanks so much!

Just to end any confusion I guess this is what this guy is referring to

03/04 UD Ben Wallace for Trade

Why he put it here I am not sure.

Just using this as a bump. My desk is slowly reappearing as I send these cards out!

I'd like to join in. I have some base left. I give most of it to my LCS owner. Who in turn hands them out at the Summer Camp. I will be ripping a couple of 08 topps chrome today or tommorow. Depends on the mail man. The only thing is with working 2 jobs is I can only get them out on Saturdays. But let me know. And I'll get some out.

Nice to see a fee more people offering to send cards out. Especially if someone likes Basketball or Hockey since I don't break either of them.

I still have a bunch of superhero cards if anyone would like them for their kids.

Just wanted to say that this is/was a really cool idea...if I was organized, I might try to pull this off myself.

Just wondering if anyone would be willing to toss some over to my 6th grade SPED kids. I teach in the ghetto, or as ghetto as it gets in Kansas, so basketball or football are the main commodities. I give out quite a few of my own, but am starting to run low. The kids do love to get rewards for reaching goals.

fungi send me your address or the schools with your name. I could round up a nice batch of rookies/singles/inserts for ya. I haven't figured out what to do with them so this could be good for the kids and the cards.

Default homework inspiration

Added to this thread on invitation of OP:

Dear Forumites:

I have a 9 year old son who I've probably irreparably hooked on sportscards. He loves to sort them, make little displays, etc. He is starting to get homework this year (4th grade) and is hating it. In the past, I've used cards as an occasional reward for the homework, and also for writing exercises (he is getting pediatric occupational therapy for pencil-grip issues) in which he sends in older base cards to the teams of retired/active players with an SASE for autos. If any of you have small-medium lots of baseball, football, or hockey base cards that you are looking to get rid of, I'd be happy to take them off your hands. I'm also happy to help out with shipping costs (Paypal) - send me a PM with details. Having the occasional surprise box/envelope for him to open would go a long way on the inspiration front!

I'm sending a batch out fungi for his school kids to see how this works out. I have plenty of cards that I'm sitting on and would love to give out. I might have to ask for shipping $ or partial shipping depending on how many cards go out. Please PM me if you are interested. I have mostly football, but some basketball and baseball around. I have no kids of my own to pass the cards on to yet.
