But if there's no money involved, is there a problem? My vote would be no.
And so when my friend Arron (remember that name, I'm sure you'll be hearing it a lot here as we'll be hounding a ton in Arlington) texted me yesterday to alert me that Matt at DocHoloday.com was giving away team lots and my beloved Indians were still available, you can guarantee I jumped on that chance. I'll let you all know what I get. It may take a few weeks since they're being shipped to Wichita Falls instead of Arlington (unless I email Matt real quick-like and ask him to hold them for a few days and send to the new place), but once I get them, I'll be as happy as a little girl.

I got so excited I told Corey about it as well. His Mets were gone already, but he knows a Marlins collector he thinks he can swing a few trades with to pick up some Mets; so he got the Marlins. Arron picked up the A's since the Rangers were gone.
Matt still has the Giants, Pirates, White Sox, and Brewers available. So if any fans of those teams are reading this, go check him out. And not just for the free cards either-- the blog as a whole is great. There's a lot in there on baseball, cards, and other random stuff on his mind and life in general. I added to the blog links on the right side here.
Maybe I'll do something similar eventually with clearing some of my cards out. I was planning on selling some on eBay (because really now, why do I need 120 cards of Matt Williams?). I figured with some of the stuff I have, I can help out some IP/TTM collectors sometime. So we'll see what happens. I don't have the awesomeness that Matt has been slinging around to everyone, but I figure I can help someone out somewhere.
