What do you call someone who gives you a $100 worth of cards to open?


Patron saint of sportscards?

I just call her my mother-in-law.

I asked my MIL to stop buying me cards a while back, but she brought my recuperating wife a rather large stash of snacks, Ginger Ale and magazines to help her recuperation and she brought a bag for me.

She said it was a thank you for taking care of her baby. I said thanks and looked inside. What did I find?

Two blasters of 2013 Archives and six 2013 Topps hanging boxes!!!! Are you kidding me? Well, I couldn't break the poor, generous, thankful woman's heart so I hugged her and said thanks again.

Details to follow.


  1. you need to keep that woman. both of them. hold tight.

    mine still is mad at me for 'taking her baby away'.... 11 years later.

  2. Congrats, you married well.

    To answer your question though, my answer would be "non-existent."

  3. Sweetness. That's good ol fashion thoughtful appreciative love right their folks. Kudos!

  4. Man, that's pretty sweet. Brought a smile to my face just thinking that my MIL would do something like that for me.
