Missed Donation

No one is perfect, not even me :)

Over the last few weeks, we have literally gotten several 100,000 cards in donations and, for the first time, a donation slipped through the cracks.

I’ll be the first to admit that I don’t have the best system and you guys loaded me up, so it got a little carried away.

When we get boxes, I tried to cut off the address that they came from for a few reasons, first I keep a stack of them so I have them when I update the site and second, sometimes we use those boxes to donate cards so it’s just better for everyone if the address is off.

I think what happened is I had several stacks, one fell off and got “cleaned up” while my lovely wife tries to keep some type of order in a house full of boxes and trading cards…which isn’t easy.

I would like to personally apologize to Mr. Cliff Dilling from California Mr Dilling sent us two boxes stuffed with awesome cards and I remember getting the boxes. The first was stuffed with commons while the second box was stuffed with all stars and hall of famers.

I do my best to not miss anyone because this whole project is only going strong because of YOU guys! You guys are the #C4KFamily and it really sucks that I missed someone because no donation is too small and every donation is extremely appreciated!

I’m truly sorry to Mr. Dilling and I will do better so this doesn’t happen again….maybe come up with a system or take a few minutes to update more often instead of letting donations pile up.

Huge thanks to Cliff Dilling for his donation and welcome to the #C4KFamily!!!


New Donations

First, we will be doing our Ponderosa Speedway donation tomorrow night – over 7,000 NASCAR cards loaded with memorabilia and autograph cards. This is the donation that was scheduled for July 4th but had to be rescheduled.

On top of that, we got some great cards this week!

First we got some awesome stuff from N. Coombs from Menlo Park, California -

On top of that we got several more boxes from P. Persico and Greig just to add to the numbers!


The goal when I first stared this was to donate my 100,000 commons….then I got some publicity and upped the goal to 1 million…that was about 2.5 year ago.

Today, July 12th, 2014, we donated our 3 millionth trading card….actually, the donation put us over that number and we have about 50,000 in inventory and we have our #C4KHalloween donating coming up with 100,000 cards, so we are quickly headed to 4 million!


Of course, the 3 millionth card was (as every millionth card is) a 1989 Griffey Jr Upper Deck that was donated by our buddy and #C4KFamily member Jeffrey Guinn but that wasn’t it.

We donated 75,000 cards to Sunrise Children’s Home and we donated 75,001 cards to Bikers Against Child Abuse- but we didn’t just donate trading cards, we added a bunch of cool stuff!

As always, thanks to all of the #C4KFamily for keeping this project going so long and amazing us every day! We’ll post about a couple donations tomorrow that just shows how amazing you guys are…….we got a 4 COLOR PATCH card donated today!!!!

(On a side note…..anyone wanna donate a 1989 Upper Deck Ken Griffey Jr rookie to be our 4 millionth card???)

Tons of Updates!!!


We have confirmed both donations for Saturday – 75,000 cards are going to Sunrise Children’s Home and 75,001 cards are going to Bikers Against Child Abuse!

That “1″ card will be our 3 millionth card – a 1989 Upper Deck Griffey Jr.!!!

This is huge for us and I’m really proud of the entire #C4KFamily- with the exception of a couple of card shoppers and a few “box breakers”, 99% of the cards have come straight from COLLECTORS! We haven’t gotten cards from Topps or Upper Deck…..strictly COLLECTORS!

You guys are amazing!!!


Our all racing card donation that was scheduled for July 4th had to be rescheduled for July 18th due to the actual race being rescheduled. The cards are ready to go and we will be at the track around 4pm, bring out the kids for some amazing NASCAR cards including memorabilia cards and autographs!


The last week or so has been crazy! You guys have loaded us up- the mailman is getting a workout!

We got several boxes from #C4KFamily members James Tzitzouris of Phoenix, Maryland and P. Persico – Lawrence, Massachusetts, like about 8 large flat rate boxes total!

On top of all of those, we got donations from some new folks as well!

Jon Whetzel of Albuquerque, New Mexico sent some amazing stuff!

The case is scratched up but the cards are in great shape!
