I am sure you have heard of the website Craigslist by now. This guy named Craig started it as a way to share information with people in the San Francisco area. Long story short, 15 years later the site has established itself in about 700 cities in over 70 countries. It is one of the top 50 visited websites on the internet. It is a pretty good resource to find used equipment, baseball cards, real estate, you name it. One of the better resources is its cars+truck section and this is what we are going to focus on.
Lay each of the baseball cards flat on your work area in the state you wish them to appear upward. (You might want some cards to show the front and some to show the back.) Spray each card with an even coat of Krylon Crystal Clear Acrylic Spray to prevent any color bleeding. Dry completely and repeat for two more coats. Let the cards set overnight.
I have seen other websites offer a “poll of the day” or a “survey of the day” and so on. The list is endless. Whatever it is you choose should be related to what your website is about. If you sell topps baseball cards it wouldn’t make much sense to do a daily poll about politics now would it? Probably not.
If time allows, head out the back way and stop at Atlantic City on your way home. Considered a genuine ghost town there are some nice shops and Vintage baseball cards historical information there as well.
My point is this. I had fun with those thin colored pieces of cardboard. I traded my doubles with friends. Placed the stickers you sometimes got, all over my room. And I will tell you what they were far cheaper then all the stuff kids want now. Bring back the trading cards. I mean you can still buy them but are a little hard to find. I bet you get some weird looks when you start handing them out. My kids and I collect WWE cards. We have fun and try to get as many autographed as possible. Bring them back and bring back a simpler more wallet eased gift. Get collecting!
