Mets Through the Years: The Managers
March 5th, 2012 by slangon

Later on tonight, I will be doing something that I haven’t done in a crow’s age. I will be sitting on a couch, drinking a beer and watching LIVE METS BASEBALL!!! Granted, it’s spring training baseball and granted I won’t be home until about a half an hour after the game starts so most likely […]

Let’s Try This Again
October 27th, 2011 by slangon

As mostly everyone knows, Game 6 of the World Series was postponed last night was preemptively called due to a rainy forecast. At least that’s what Major League Baseball would have you believe. In actuality it was because I was torn on whether to show the 1973 Game 6 card that I showed yesterday, or […]

And So It Begins
October 19th, 2011 by slangon

As everyone knows, tonight kicks off the 106th World Series, with Game 1 getting underway in St. Louis. And no, the card at the top of this post is not some not-so-subtle way of me rooting for the Cardinals. I just happened to have picked up a bunch of World Series highlight cards from the […]

Cards for Customs, Part 2
October 15th, 2011 by slangon

Double timing it today. Here’s batch 2 from my latest Cards for Customs haul, and there’s some good ‘uns in there. Michael started this one off with the second and third year cards of probably the Greatest Met Ever. This has nothing to do with Michael and his generosity, but it always kind of irks […]

Fruits of the Greatest Month: Meet the Mets (Part 1)
July 21st, 2011 by slangon

I don’t think it should surprise anyone that the lions share of the cards that I got in my latest spree are Mets cards. That actually has to do with why I was considering this my greatest month as a collector, because I was able to do so much damage to my want lists. As […]

June 2011 Was the Greatest Month of Collecting Ever
July 15th, 2011 by slangon

Like most things in life, it seems like collecting little pieces of cardboard with pictures of professional athletes on them has its ebbs and flows. Sometimes, you can go a while without even thinking of cards. Maybe it’s because you get busy, life interrupts, you need to save money, you might even just be (gasp) […]

I do believe I might’ve jinxed the Metsies last night by showing all the old Angels cards in yesterdays post. To try and counter that, here’s a basketful of old Mets cards, none of which have been on this blog before. Enjoy and Let’s Go Mess Mets.

More Interleague Play. Yay.
June 17th, 2011 by slangon

Tonight begins another round of the always exciting inter-league play. The Mats are facing off against the Los Angeles Angels of Anehiem, California. Maybe not the most exciting matchup, but I guess it’ll at least be cool to watch players who I never get to watch. I always like Torii Hunter. I think a lot […]
