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.
