Put your Money where your Mouth is

I stopped worshipping cards about 4 years ago when I first heard God's call.  As proof, I burned approximately 80,000-100,000 cards dating back to the late-1970's when I sold my farm a couple of years ago.  Most readers know that I've kept reprint sets in my collection for 1948-1954 Topps/Bowman sets that I've replaced one-by-one with originals.  Once replaced, I put the reprints for sale online.  Boxes and boxes of reprints for sale online began to build up over the years.  At $1 each, with combined shipping options, my reprints would rarely sell.  Ebay has evolved to the point that has made selling more and more difficult for sellers.  Limited free listings each month with your listings disappearing if you don't relist within 60 days.  If your listing expires, you have to take another picture of your card and then create a whole new listing for hundreds of cards that Ebay removes if you don't relist in time, or pay.  I had a box of about 800 reprints from 1948-1954 that I didn't feel like taking pictures of and selling.  I know some of you out there think there are a bunch of starving kids out there that could eat these cards, but I'm sure they'll survive without them.  I have a few of these posts coming, since vintage is unaffordable right now.  Watch 'em burn.
