Question of the Day

I'm an OCDish guy. Everything has to be sorted and in it's place. My cards used to be sorted by this "System"
Player (All Sports, Alphabetical by Last Name)
However, I got bugged looking for baseball cards and having hockey mixed in. Then, I went sorting by sports. All the baseball in the same boxes, all the football in others, etc. This again, made me angry. What if I was trading and needed to find a certain player? I would have to go through 8 5000 count boxes to find 2 or 3 cards of some Erubiel Durazo-esque player. Then I went by sets. I found it fun to see all the same cards together, but I had the same problem before. What about the player collectors? So I finally came up with the following "system"
Sort by sport. (Say it 5 times fast :D )
When all sorted by sport, sort by team.
When sorted by sport and team, sort by player.
When sorted by sport, team, and player, sort by year.
When sorted by sport, team, player, and year, sort by set.
When sorted by sport, team, player, year, and set, go in numerical order.

I still have doubts on if my system works. So the question is...
How do you sort your cards?

Let Me Know!
