I wonder if the credit industry has come up with a way to get credit cards off of the listing on your
I won't mention my age but some of the credit cards listed on my credit report are for stores that
no longer exist. Cutting them up is one way of ridding myself of them but wouldn't you think there

Welcome to the forums.
You want as many old accounts in good standing to remain on your reports as long as possible. Closed accounts generally will remain for up to 10 years after closing but if you have some still on there then count your blessings. Those accounts continue to help your AAoA (Average Age of Accounts) and your credit length history.
Having those there is helping your score not hurting it.
