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 […]

Mets Through the Years: Center Field
October 2nd, 2012 by slangon

Ugh. This is going to be close. In honor of the 50th Anniversary of the New York Mets, I’ve been looking at the primary players at each position throughout the teams history. We’ve already looked at the managers, Opening Day starting pitchers, catchers, first basemen, second basemen,shortstops, third basemen and left fielders, as well as all of the Mets’ All-Star representatives. […]

A New King in Town (Almost)
September 26th, 2012 by slangon

Just on the odd chance that anyone out there missed the Mets game last night (because after all, who in there right mind would not be glued to the television every single time the Mets are on?), after showing a couple of small signs of resiliency and life, the team ultimately fell to the Pirates […]

Mets Through the Years: Left Field
September 25th, 2012 by slangon

Man, time is getting short. The Mets have 9 games to go and I’ve got 3 positions left to do. Fingers, don’t fail me now. In honor of the 50th Anniversary of the New York Mets, I’ve been looking at the primary players at each position throughout the teams history. We’ve already looked at the […]

We’ve already looked at the managers, Opening Day starting pitchers, catchers, first basemen, second basemen, and third basemen, as well as all of the Mets’ All-Star representatives. Today, we’ll be looking […]

Enjoy the barbecues and beer, but let’s not forget them that’ve given their lives in the service of this country.

Making Up for Bad Blogging, Part III
May 3rd, 2012 by slangon

On we trudge with my attempt to post some cards that I recently picked up. Or at least when I started these posts it was recent. Now not so much. Anyway, here’s some more 60′s Topps cards. I don’t know what it is, but Cardinals cards from the 1967 set look really awesome to me. […]

Making Up for Bad Blogging, Part II
April 27th, 2012 by slangon

Last week, I started to try and make up for my lack of recent posts by showing some cards that I recently picked up. Of course, after just one post, I fell back into my bad habits. This is my second stab at a new start. Here are some more Condition: Poor gems that I […]

Happy Beer Drinking Day!
March 17th, 2012 by slangon

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 […]
