A Truly Condition: Poor Trade with Project 62
June 8th, 2010 by slangon

A while back, I had posted about a TTM success that I recently got back from former Red Sox pitcher and current wack-o Bill “The Spaceman” Lee. Chris from Project ’62 had contacted me about getting a copy of the Bill Lee card for his Bill Lee player collection that he started last year. Now, […]

Destination 6-for-5
May 22nd, 2010 by slangon

Another finski in the coffers of the local card shop. Another 6 cards in my grubby hands. 1976 Topps #10 Lou Brock I’m alway a big fan of action shots on baseball cards. I mean, come on, who really wants to look at a close cropped picture of some dude’s ugly mug when they can […]

February 10th, 2010 by slangon

I know my part of Jersey hasn’t seen as much snow as some of our neighbors to the south, but my back is still a-barkin’ from shoveling on Saturday and now we’re expecting to get another 12-18″. What do you do when it seems like Mother Nature has it out for you? Write about some […]

I Told You It Was The Year of Vintage
January 23rd, 2010 by slangon

Three More Mets TTM Successes
December 22nd, 2009 by slangon

2009 SlangKo Heroes of the Diamond Jim Fregosi Of course, the man that was Nolan Ryan was traded for, along with 3 other players. A 6 time All-Star, all before coming to the Mets. Like a lot of guys the Mets pick up, he was really good with the Angels, not so much with the […]

Some eBay stuff from the last week or so
August 7th, 2009 by slangon
