You can legally apply for a pardon for any conviction. A pardon is granted or denied by the governor, after he first gets a report from the parole board. Not many pardons are granted, but given the age of the convictions, and the minor nature of the convictions, you appear to have a reasonable chance.

That's your only choice if you have two felonies. Are you sure they are felonies? Shoplifting is almost always charged with misdemeanor crimes.
