It sounds like the cards must have been in good standing to remain on your reports so long (if not, correct me). Accounts closed in good standing will remain on your reports for ten years and sometimes much longer if you are lucky. You do not want to get accounts removed that were closed in good standing as doing so would harm your credit profile and scores. Please do some reading and educate yourself before you start tampering with your credit, you will thank yourself later.

If it is ten years old it should be about to come off your report anyways.  Normaly that is how long good accounts stay on your report.  If it is not a account in good standing you can dispute it with the credit bureau's and have it removed.
