I'm working on a project that will provide baseball, football, basketball, and history cards to kids in low-income neighborhoods. As a collector, and being around true collectors for most of my life, mail day makes most of us 40 to 60-year-olds feel like kids being handed the keys to the chocolate factory. And that's with … Continue reading The Foundation Project – Cards for Hope
