Strippers, Booze and Cobras

Today is my birthday! It was full of crazy amounts of alcohol and strippers........33 is such a monumental birthday.

In actuality I was hoping to get some quality card time, but a prolonged visit from my parents and the fact that my daughter is under the weather put a hold on those plans. Maybe tomorrow for some quality time with the cardboard.

2005 Absolute Memorabilia Dave Parker Dual Patch/Bat /25

I'm such a sucker for patch cards from older Pirates. I really should allocate my card money to autos or set needs, but I'm a kid in the candy store when these type of cards pop up. GOTTA HAVE IT!!! I only paid $9.50 for this so it wasn't too expensive. Must be the old Pirate jerseys. That gold is mesmerizing. 

Back to strippers and alcohol.

  1. GREAT card, and happy birthday! I didn't realize you were just a few months older than I am. I guess I can say I totally knew what day it was when I sent a package your way last week, one that should be arriving any day now.

  4. Happy birthday, Matt! If it weren't your birthday, this would still be an appropriate title for any day spent in the 1980s hanging out with Dave Parker.

    1. The funny thing is that is why I titled it the way I did. Although as Zippy said, I might change booze to blow to get early 80's Dave Parker interested.

  7. Happy Birthday!

    It seems like there have been a few Blogger B-days recently - do Libras collect more than others? (side note, I don't believe in astrology at all)

    1. That explains it. I need to tell my wife that I buy cards for reasons beyond my control.
