Ahhh yes, the silliness of being a footy supporter. This work comes from the gag ‘hey, wouldn’t it be neat if we did our own soccer card set but instead of it being serious, it has all of our ridiculous gags?’
From there, it took a life of its own. No, we did not sell them, and those who offered to “donate” were allowed to, but not more than the actual cost of the 54 card set was to produce, which was around $11 if memory serves. They were full colour, double sided, glossy card stock. As a collector of sports cards as a child and Magic: The Gathering (*cough*geek*cough*) as an adult, I had an appreciation for their design and how nice they would look in a binder sheet, holding a 3×3 grid of them.
Most of the jokes were only appreciated if you actually followed Toronto FC, slightly less if you followed Major League Soccer in general, and slightly more if you read the blog. 20 sets were produced and most were given away to friends and fans of the blog.
