March 17th, 2013 by slangon

Despite my apparent sabbatical from the blog recently, I couldn’t miss the 4th Annual Condition: Poor St. Patricks Day Parade of Cards, once again led by the Grand Marshal, the Mets’ own “Irish Hammer” Daniel Murphy. So without further ado, let’s get to the wearin’ o’ the green. Grand Marshall Murphy, lead the way.

Mets Through the Years: Right Field
October 3rd, 2012 by slangon

I’ve got to get this up before 4:10. Of course I had to leave right field for last. The Mets have had more right fielders in their history than any other position. Typical. Anyway… In honor of the 50th Anniversary of the New York Mets, I’ve been looking at the primary players at each position […]

You Gotta Take It Where You Can Get It, I Guess
July 29th, 2012 by slangon

So the Mets lost again last night. No big surprise there. It’s been almost 3 weeks since the All-Star game and the team has managed to win 2 games. Depressing. Rather than just be all doom and gloom, I’ve decided that I’m going to just look at the silver lining. For instance during last night’s […]

Card of the Moment #84
June 26th, 2012 by slangon

Today’s Card of the Moment is brought to us by the number 22. And the number 45. And I’m not talking about the Astro’s record, either. I’ve mentioned several times in the past about how the Houston Colt .45′s is one of my favorite team names ever. Well, I found out a fact today that […]

Mets Through the Years: Catchers
March 19th, 2012 by slangon

Being that this is the 50th Anniversary of the existence of the Mets, I’m taking a look at the guys who have played each position for the team throughout the years. In cardboard form, of course. Now, since I don’t want to sit here and scan 1,000,000 cards so that I can show every single […]

I can’t believe this is the 3rd Annual Condition: Poor St. Patricks Day Parade of Cardboard. Geez. How long have I been here? On to the parade. This year, the Grand Marshal of the parade is the Mets’ own “Irish Hammer”, Daniel Murphy. Have a great St. Paddy’s day everyone. Don’t eat too much Lucky […]

What Were They Thinking: The Doppelgänger Edition
February 27th, 2012 by slangon

This series of posts is dedicated to examining the numerous design details from the Topps art department that leave me scratching my head. They’re the types of things that could just be one time instances that are the result of someone overlooking them, or they could have been a conscious decision on the part of […]

Countdown.
