So Friday was my birthday and like your typical card collector, I wanted only one thing for my birthday. I wanted a box of cards. Normally this means that I get blaster boxes from Target or Wal-Mart but this year was different. My great mother who reads this site, hi mom, knew that I was down on blaster boxes. She offered to go with me to my favorite card shop, Valley Sports Cards, and buy me a box of cards. Despite turning 30, I had no qualms about walking into the card shop with my mom. Hey, I love cards because opening a pack makes me feel giddy like a little kid. I immediately picked out Donruss Elite 2012/13.
