    Ok like most players I have Hundreds upon hundreds (maybe thousands) of cards from past formats all the way to base set. They take up at least 10 boxes and are a complete waste of space because I never touch them.

    What should I do with them?

    New players would like them, that's for sure. Certain websites would buy them. You have many options.

    donate to my godbooks.

    Nah, do what you feel should be done.

    Hand em out, drop box, sell em.

    Children in your league may love some of the older cards.

    Give commons and uncommons and maybe some rare pokemon to new players.
    Sell the rare cards.
    You could also keep some cards to remember your od days ^^

    Sell them at Origins. That's what I did, made a whole bunch of $.
    ... And remember a friendly Base set card (actually the whole line) was/will be reprinted in IFDS.

    Donate them to charity. Giving kids a new activity is always a good thing to do.

    I travelled by myself to nats and did not want to check any luggage so I was limited in what I could bring.

    Next time fly southwest u can check 2 bags for free.

    I also flew by myself, but it is hard taking all that stuff with you, yeah...
    William C. was on the same flight as I was too and also brought a few cards to sell.
    I also had duke fire bird and shy_girl_1999 pick me up and drop me off, they were so helpful ^_^..
    I sold a bunch of RV Holos and HP-PK junk cards and bought 2 boxes (1 of each/ cause there are 2 different ones) of Dp 5.
    There was some dealer selling a torerra lv x for $3 and one buying em for $4.
    go figure..

    How do you sell cards at nats?

    I give some away and have a nice unlimited deck. I also use them as substitutes to try out
    other decks that aren't out yet.
