What exactly are you suppose to do with all of your old cards?
Do you chuck'em at people or recycle or just toss them out?

Practice your Mercury Card Fold. Use 'em in the Ambitious Card Routine and let the specs sign them. Use them for other effects with signed cards.

Practice Cardboard Connection, or any torn & restored card effect. How about card to ceiling?

I always do my ACR with a brand new deck... in fact, just about every effect I do is with a new deck(this goes for practice too). Trying to do magic with an old, worn out deck is like playing music with an out-of-tune guitar. It's just not the same.

I usually try some kind of T&R or card linking routine with old cards, but then I eventually trash them.

I keep them in a huge bowl...... and ever time I walk by.... I grab a handful and start practicing....... I also use them as extras for torn and restored and the like....

I have a bowl full of bees at work.... and bowl for of bikes at the house...they actually look pretty good as decorations as well.....

just make a new floor for you room......when I started practicing the hot shot cut, everytime I would miss catching the card I wouldn't even go pick it up...or when I accedently drop a deck of cards I just opened a new one because I am too lazy to pick it up....so now my room's floor is nothing but red and blue in cards....quite ugly actually, one of these days I have to stop being so lazy and get to picking them up. :?

I elastic band my old cards togther (without the box) and save them as duplicates. Also if the box is in a half good condition I save that as well, incase my other box breaks (very likely), or you need a fake box for an effect.
