You Think Friday The 13th Is Scary....

You think Friday The 13th is scary? I am more worried about March The 19th of 2023.

*takes a sip*

On March 19th of this year, I am turning 40 years old.


It doesn't seem possible, especially since I have a mindset of a 12-year-old.....though a body of a 60-year-old.

Since I will be turning a big scary number this year and the fact, I know I am getting older, I recently took an eBay gift card I got for Christmas and turned it into something that would make me feel young again. No, I didn't buy a magic youth potion from Yzma, those of you who watched Emperor's New Groove will get that reference, but I did buy something that would take me back in time.

And yes, I wished it had been a DeLorean but what I got will have to do.

Even though these literally can't really take me back in time like the DeLorean could have, these can nostalgically.
I picked up some unopened 90's packs from my favorite time of collecting, 1995-1999, for a rip-fest. I am really looking forward to it.

Included in this pile is,
  • 1997 Upper Deck UD3 Football (4 packs)
  • 1996 Laserview Football (3 packs)
  • 1996 Press Pass Premium Football (1 pack)
  • 1996 Pinnacle Select Hobby Football (1 pack)
  • 1995 Signature Rookies Autograph-Phonex (3 packs)
A good mixture and all I had opened at one point in my youth.

I plan on posting the results from the packs in a new segment coming up soon. Right now, it's going to be called Turning 40 but the name may be adjusted before I post the first part. Let me know in comments if you have a better name.

I know many have said 40 isn't that scary or that old, but I guess I will find out in March. There is no turning back time, even if I was Cher.

Thoughts on my packs and if you have something scarier than Friday The 13th coming up for you this year

  1. I'll be turning 48 in March, so you're still a youngster in my book. Just remember, once you're over the hill, you begin to pick up speed!

    1. I sure hope that doesn't mean it speeds up any faster than it already has!

  2. I turned 60 last October 13th. Some of my best birthdays have been on Friday the 13th. I'm not over the hill because I moved it. Now the top of the hill is 70. Coffee anyone?

    1. 60 is still young! But as long as you have coffee by your side age is only a number!

  3. I too am turning 40 this year so I share your pain. Awesome choices of packs to open to celebrate/distract yourself, though! I look forward to seeing what you pull.

    1. Hope youre following my 90s account on Twitter, been sharing the results there!

  4. I'm always excited to see 90's packs... especially Signature Rookies ones. As for the turning 40 thing... I wouldn't be too scared. I turned 50 last year and barely blinked. Although I did make me realize it's better to start planning for retirement (financially) sooner... than later. Happy early birthday!

    1. Thanks! Not quite ready to think about retirement, though I do think I should probably get other parts of my life laid out because you just never know when your time can come. Though I don't want to think about it.


Cards and coffee go together like PB&J, so don't you and leaving a comment below. Take a sip and let me know your thoughts!
