Default New way to get rid of old auction catalogs

I volunteer once a week at a local playhouse. My boss is an older guy who doesn't collect but likes baseball and sits in the box office booth all day. Each week I bring one of my old auction catalogs for him to browse through in his office. A form of recycling, plus my form of throwing them away.

He doesn't know the memorabilia or cards, but, for example, knows what was Merkle's Boner.

Maybe offering up old auction catalogs and other assorted hobby publications, to doctor/dentist offices and such for their waiting rooms could be a good way to promote the hobby.

A remember a number of years ago a similar non-collecting sports fan friend was browsing through my old Halper Auction catalog and vocally marveling at the incredibly high prices. I said "Uh, those are the minimum bids."

David,

That is a great idea and before you know it, docs and dents will be making deals for T206 cards!!! Imagine walking into a doctors office and offering them a stack of T206's including a Chief Bender for a colonoscopy. "Come on doc, it's a fair trade, that Bender is a Sovereign back."

Lovely Day...

Iggy, I used to perform colonoscopies. If you've never had one, you'll find out what a real "bender" is, when you have one. And your back is not sovereign as well

No one ever offered cards for services rendered, but I would have been open to the idea.

Please do not send me catalogs for my office. I'm no longer practicing.

I am still in practice and would gladly trade cards for services rendered...although my wife might have something to say about that

I might have to let my female patients bring in shoes and purses for trade to keep the other half happy.
