Birthday present to me from me

Today is my birthday. I’ll be headed to the Yankees-Red Sox game tonight to celebrate. As a little gift for myself, I bought this card as part of a large purchase on SportLots. It’s a 2008 Bowman Chrome Jesus Montero RC and I paid $5 for it. A month ago I probably could have gotten it cheaper, but it’s a card I wanted, and hey, it’s my birthday.

It’s been an interesting year for me. For one, I found out I’m about to become a first-time dad. That will happen in December. On a much less personal note, I also started the blog and got back into collecting in the last year, which has certainly been a lot of fun. I picked up painting again with my Derek Jeter painting, and currently I’m working on a Rivera.

Yeah, I’m getting older, but overall it was a good year and I’m looking forward to what’s in store this year.
