I'm one of those people who love to organize and sort things... which explains why I collect trading cards. When I was a kid, I'd plop myself in front of the television with a stack of cards and sort them into teams. A week later, I'd do the same thing... only this time I'd put them in numerical order. The next week? I'd sort them by players. My collection was constantly being manhandled and rearranged.
These days, I don't handle my cards as much as I used to. But every now and then, I still have the urge to sort & organize.
I recently traded my buddy a bunch of unopened wax boxes (3 boxes of 90/91 Pro Set Hockey, 3 boxes of 1991 Kayo Boxing, and 1 box of 90/91 Score Hockey), some 49ers team sets, and $10 for this box of singles:
The box provided me with over ninety minutes worth of entertainment as I sat in front of the television sorting the cards and deciding which cards I wanted to keep and which ones I was going to give away, sell, or trade..
When I was finished, there were little stacks of cardboard scattered across my family room and one small stack of around 30 cards that I planned on adding to my collection.
Here's a sample of what I pulled for myself...
Okay here is today's contest question:
