What To Do With Your In-Hands?

We've joked on the etopps message board about using in-hand cards as beverage coasters on our coffee tables and other unorthodox ways of having them around the house but what about more practical uses in our day-to-day lives?

  • If you know someone in your life who is a sports fan: your dentist, your UPS delivery person, your barber, give them an in-hand of the team they like.
  • Give one to the kid up the street who you here is just starting to like your favorite local team and wants to collect anything he can get his hands on.
  • Hand out in-hands in the children's ward of your local hospital.
  • Give an in-hand of the one player your client loves to talk about when you talk about football.
  • If your boss is a Dolphins fan, why not an 08 Chad Pennington on his birthday?
  • What about the family that lost everything in a fire in your town or neighborhood? Their son is a big Carolina Panthers fan and you would make his day if you placed a Panthers team card in his hand.
My point is: sure you can make money online selling in-hands but what about connecting with others with in-hands?

As some in-hands are worth a few quarters and the shipping discount is underway, isn't the smile on someone's face worth more than the one bid at 99 cents you get running an auction?
