don't do it!!!

Just lock the unwanted cards away someplace safe (personal safe or safe deposit box) and leave them there.  I suggest you re-read the articles here to understand the reasons why because too many people are asking this question.

Closing cards would most likely harm your scores, but if you decide to do it, make sure that you only close one card at a time then wait a month or so to see what effect it has on your credit scores before closing any more.
