I’ve been working on this Dodgeball set off and on for awhile now; every so often adding another member of Average Joe’s or a Purple Cobra. Then, as it usually seems to happen with my card sets, I sat down and watched the movies and it took my inspiration for the cards to the next level.
I had originally planned on just making the two teams, but after watching I knew there were a few hilarious ancillary cards that had to be a part of the mini-set.
If you’ve not watched Dodgeball in awhile it’s worth a rewatch. If you’re pressed for time at least pick it up from the point where the dodgeball tournament starts. It’s a quotefest. Pepper f’n Brooks, man.

I’m a fan of most anything Ben Stiller is in. I dig his brand of humor especially when he plays that sort of put upon character like in Meet the Parents. Vince Vaughn is palatable but I defy anyone to find me a movie, this one included, where he isn’t the same. exact. character. Has no one caught on to this? He plays the same fast talking wise-ass character, literally, in every movie he’s ever been in.
For the card set I chose a 1989-90 Fleer basketball inspired theme. I liked the idea of using each of the two teams logos with the color coordinated border.

|Dodge, dip, dive, duck, and dodge.|
For the Chuck Norris and Chancellor card it took awhile to track down a movie accurate ADAA logo. There's one out there that is close but I would know the difference and that would never do. Same deal I talked about with the Bayside Tigers logo.
