Like a kid in a candy store....

You thought I wouldn't make it huh? well here I am day 3!
L decided on Sunday that she wanted to start a baseball card collection, she has always talked about it, but never did it. We were at Walmart and I showed her a Beckett, and then she bought some cards...
Well being obsessive
she stayed up until 2 am looking up cards online...
she made another trip to walmart and bought more cards...
this afternoon we went to target and she got more cards!
well since we were all tapped out in our "baseball card fund" we thought we would just go to the card shop and look around...
while we were there we were talking with the owner and he said that alot of people are in debt so they are just selling off their collections for really cheap and right now is a good time to save not sell. Then he showed us what another man had given to him, it was over 18,000 cards apparently the guy use to have a card store and he shut it down so he just wanted to get rid of them, well guess what, the owner gave them to us!
he just said we could have them for FREE!
L was willing to give him money but he just said take them!
We have a few Star Wars toys that we are going to take him tomorrow for trade but he said it wasn't necessary!
how great is that...
here is a picture of L's new collection...

....now where do we put them.
