Oops. And oops.

Spring Break has been just fine, and today I found myself with a little extra time on my hands. Luckily, there was a card shop nearby!

After wandering around, picking some things up, putting them back down, chatting a bit, and repeating, I finally landed on a box of 2013 Opening Day. Debate came down to a box of the 9 card packs, or what was left of a box of 24 card packs, it had 20 left. At the last moment, the owner speaks up, says he has a box over here he has marked 20% off. I hand him the cash and walk out with it, and 3 more packs of Heritage.

Suddenly, it dawns on me, these are 2012 Opening Day packs. Arg! I’m cleaning up 2012! I’m supposed to be done!

I do have at least one complete base set, and I’ll be darn close to two. Plus, I have a good number of the inserts and a handful of blue parallels #’d to 2012.

I didn’t mean to buy cards, and I certainly didn’t mean to take on another 2012 set, but it was hours of cheap entertainment, and all around good fun. Plus I’ve got a decent local shop to deal with when I’m visiting the family, which is always good.
