A bunch of stuff to update.

Second – we picked up a couple of amazing donations and got several through the mail this week and added a couple of card shops to the #C4KFamily!
Huge thanks to the folks at Double J Gaming Emporium- they bought a bunch of not so kid friendly cards so we could use the cash to buy more kid friendly cards PLUS they gave us a box of sports cards on top of all of that. They are some great folks and they have a great place for gaming- check them out!!! Check out their site HERE!
Last weekend, we met up with the great folks from Heroes & Legends in Nashville, TN and the donated a VAN full of cards- I would estimate about 125,000 plus. After sorting them, there was well over 5,000 non-common cards from Frank Thomas rookies to Mark McGwire rookies, tons of rookies, inserts and just all around amazing stuff! They also deal with wrestling figures and tons of other stuff, check them out HERE!
Last weekend we also met Michael Cathro from Evansville, IN who brought us about 50,000 cards which was loaded with Magic, Pokemon and tons and tons of amazing cards from Nomar to Jeter to Pujols! Amazing donation loaded with tons of incredible cards.
