          NJ-based memorabilia company Score Board Inc. plans to
     liquidate its assets to pay creditors, according to a WALL
     STREET JOURNAL report.  The company, which has been
     operating under Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection, said it
     expects to be delisted by the NASDAQ "because it can't meet
     minimum requirements for listing."  The company also plans
     to sell its inventory and its intellectual property, trade
     fixtures and "certain other assets" in about a month.  Score
     Board President John White resigned and was succeeded by F.
     Duffield Meyercord (WALL STREET JOURNAL, 5/15).
