Default WTF Do I Do With My Trophies

I've got about 20 trophies from various sporting things from when I was a kid. I assume other people got trophies when they were kids. When you grew up, what did you do with them?

They serve no purpose, and I don't look at them any more. I'm not a hoarder by any means, but this is really the only thing I can't decide what to do with.

I gave most of mine to a friend of mine who gives "participation" trophies to little kids.

I know. But, what was I going to do with them? She asked and it was either that or box/toss them.

Unless itís for a national title, state championship or division championship throw them out or call a trophy shop and ask if they want them (better than throwing them away).
The only ones you need to keep are ones that are genuinely sentimental to you and trigger a great memory or something significant in your life. If it tells a good story keep it.
I drove a literal truck load of old trophies to a trophy shop and said ďTake what you can resell or use, the rest Iím throwing away.Ē and the guy took every one of them and gave me a few bucks. I kept some of them for a few years but eventually threw those away as well.

I think my wife gave several boxes to the local Special Olympics. They repurpose them.

I probably have close to 40 in my garage from my 06 Charger. Only want to keep the ones from Dub Show, WOW and a few other bigger shows. I want to toss the rest and my Wife wouldnt let me, she said we could donate to someone. I think I will try and do what Aircal did and donate to Special Olympics.

Man, I forgot all about my motocross trophies, I had quite the collection. I think they're stashed in the crawl space.
Thus, store them if you have the room.
One day you might appreciate looking at them and reminiscing on times of Winning

I think my mom held onto them. Meant more to her than to me.
