I have very old CF cards that I bought back when I got my first DSLR, the Canon 10D. They still work fine after all these years. I think the "expire date" is way overblown.

I don´t think that there is something like an "expire date" but I doubt that you still have the first images taken with your 10D on the cards. However, flash memory needs elictricity, so it can be that an old flash card which hasn´t been used for 10 years might still work but the data on it has lost because it had no elictricity over the time. So flash memory isn´t so good for storing images over a long time.
