I have trading cards from the early to mid 80s that I would like to get rid of.

I have miscellaneous trading cards from the early to mid 80s that I have schlepped around for far too long and have little sentimental value to me. No complete sets, but the series include: Empire Strikes Back, baseball, football, Return of the Jedi, and Garbage Pail Kids. (Also, some of the first Star Wars Galaxy series circa 1993.)
Would any of this stuff be worth more than pennies per pound? If so, what would be the easiest way to get money for it? (I really cannot be bothered to buy price guides and look this stuff up unless there is decent money to be had.)
If not, is there some sort of charitable way to donate them to someone who might find some enjoyment out of them?
(I saw similar posts but they dealt with 1990s-era cards.)
