You have to be filing a Federal tax return ( Form 1040/1040A/ 1040EZ) and be able to itemized your deductions on Schedule A in order for you to get a write off on your Federal tax return. Its called a donation or contribution ..in the form of items (baseball cards), property or cash. Best regards, David
So if you donate your baseball cards and can't take a tax write off..... The big guy upstairs remembers your kindness on judgement day! Best regards, David PS the best gifts or donations come with no strings attached!
