My reintroduction to my childhood obsession started with the intention of getting drunk. A buddy procured some old boxes from a local distributor he knew, and invited a few of us over to relive our childhood hobby with a couple of cases of beer and a barbecue. We got annihilated, ripped through some cards from our youth, and generally acted like idiots. From that point on, I was hooked back on the hobby.
I believe collecting cards should be just like that evening was – fun. To me, it’s not about the money. It’s great to pull a valuable card, no question, but that’s not what I’m in it for. And yeah, I sort my cards by teams, like I’m 8 years old.
Sorting By Teams is intended to be a place for me to share my views on the hobby with others and to have a few laughs along the way – even if I’m the only one laughing. Some categories to get us started are “Names I Can’t Believe Aren’t Famous,” “Manly, Magical Mustaches,” and “Things I Read on the Back of Cards.”
Hopefully you enjoy the delightfulness that is this blog. However, I don’t care if you do, because I’m going to enjoy it anyway. Have fun.
