But another thing I do to keep the hobby alive is box up all of my double base cards and basically give them away. Its the only thing I ever sell. And I sell them at Yard Sales. Something I assume we all know of.
I take the double base cards which consist of all teams and sports and I put them into different size boxes. Some are the white count boxes, shoe boxes, shipping boxes. It all depends what kind of boxes I can get my hands onto. I separate them by sport and they are ready to go to other collectors. I charge $1 a box no matter the size. And of course, I do save some aside and give them away as well. I may also take less for a lot of them. The $1, I use back into the hobby to possibly land more doubles and complete the cycle again.
I do know there are a lot of organizations I could probably donate my doubles too, but without a hobby shop,card show, or local places to really pick up cards I like doing it this way as a way to keep the hobby alive locally.
What are some of the things you do to keep the hobby alive? Would enjoy to hear what you guys do as well.
