A Tough Luck TTM Success
June 9th, 2010 by slangon

It seems like while I was busy with that Series 2 box break, my mailbox was working over time. This was one of the things that popped out of it. 2010 SlangKo Sport Stars #28 Daniel Murphy I was pretty glad to get this through-the-mail request back since Murph is one of my favorite players […]

A TTM Success… from Space.
May 21st, 2010 by slangon

2010 SlangKo Award Winners Bill “The Spaceman” Lee You remember when I used to get TTM autographs all the time? Yeah, me neither. I did get this Bill Lee card back signed, however. It only took 3 months. I say that in a snarky, condescending way, but in reality 3 months is probably nothing in […]

One Down, 161 To Go
April 6th, 2010 by slangon

First of all, I know it’s only one game, and even though the Marlins have a lot of talent, they’re not necessarily the pride of the National League. For the Mets to get that first win under their belt was huge though, especially the way that they went about it. Their Ace pitched like an […]

Another Spring Training TTM
March 18th, 2010 by slangon

2010 SlangKo Heroes of the Diamond Nick Evans Black Border Evans is one of those guys who I had really high hopes for, solely for the fact that in his first game as a Met, he hit three doubles. I guess I can’t really blame him for not panning out as I had hoped. I […]

A Couple of More Spring Training TTM Successes
March 15th, 2010 by slangon

I received 2 more TTM successes the other day, both post marked from West Palm Beach. That could only mean one thing. Spring Training Mets cards. 2010 SlangKo Heroes of the Diamond Ryota Igarashi Black Border Iggy is one of the handful of Mets relievers who are trying to stake a claim for the 8th […]

An Old Time TTM Success
March 13th, 2010 by slangon

2010 SlangKo Award Winners Marty Marion Here we have a very nice looking (if I do say so myself) autographed custom of one Mr. Marty Marion. I was kind of especially excited to get this TTM request back successfully. I tend to get a little more excited about autographs the further back the particular players […]

Another Spring Training TTM
March 8th, 2010 by slangon

2010 SlangKo Heroes of the Diamond John Maine Black Border Here is the second of the 26 TTM requests that I sent on down to Port St. Lucie, this one being of John Maine, who I believe is pitching today against the Marlins. I’m actually very interested to see how he fares today. Pretty much […]

Yet Another TTM Success
March 7th, 2010 by slangon

2010 SlangKo Award Winners Bob Friend Here’s another nice through the mail autograph I got back recently. This one is of Bob Friend. Aside from having a pretty interesting last name, Mr. Friend spent 16 seasons in the Majors, 15 of which were played with the Pirates. His final year was split between, oddly enough, […]

An MVP Caliber TTM Success
March 2nd, 2010 by slangon

2010 SlangKo Award Winners Al Rosen This one was another pretty quick turn around. It took a total of 8 days for this card to travel from me to Mr. Rosen, him open it, sign it, put it back in the mail and come back to New Jersey. Way to go, USPS. Al Rosen played […]

My First Spring Training TTM Success
February 28th, 2010 by slangon

I’m not sure if I mentioned it before, but since this is my first Spring Training since I started collecting TTM autographs, I kind of went a little nuts with sending out requests to the Mets camp. I think 26 was the final tally, all custom cards. That meant designing 26 cards, making 52 cards […]
