“Payment” from Project ’62: Part 3
June 30th, 2011 by slangon

Before we get into it, I just want to acknowledge the Mets awesome play over the last week or so. They actually set a new club record for most runs scored over the course of a 4 game span. I personally didn’t really know that such a record existed, but they broke it alright. The […]

The Vengeance of the 25¢ Bin
May 2nd, 2011 by slangon

I don’t know what was more shocking, hearing the news that after 10 years they finally tracked down and killed Osama Bin Laden or that the Mets were somehow able to avoid the sweep at the hand of Cliff Lee and the Phillies. Here’s some more quarter cards. It’s a veritable smorgasbord of 1970’s cardboard […]

Blaster Schmaster: The Mid-Late 70’s
March 11th, 2011 by slangon

To recap, I recently grabbed a bunch o’ cardboard from Sportlots and managed to spend about what I would if I had bought a modern blaster box. I already covered some random freebies that the seller threw in as well as cards from the Oughts and the 80’s. Now were starting to get into the […]

What Were They Thinking: The Marie Antoinette Edition
February 15th, 2011 by slangon

Ever since I started this blog, and began to really take a good look at Topps card designs over the years, I’ve encountered numerous details of those designs that would sort of leave me scratching my head. I’m not sure if I puzzled over these specific things because graphic design is what I do for […]

A Team Set Killer of a Trade
March 31st, 2010 by slangon

Last week was a pretty good week for me trade-wise. I got three trade offers that ended up doing some pretty fierce damage to various wantlists of mine. Todays episode comes to us from reader Robert, who wasn’t ashamed to admit to being a fellow Mets fan. Rob sent me a box of Mets cards […]

The Valley of the 6 for 5 Bin
March 25th, 2010 by slangon

Here we go again. 1983 Topps Traded #101T Tom Seaver I wish I was a little older and more aware of things in 1983. I’m sure it was a joyous day in Metsville when they welcomed The Franchise back into the fold. I just don’t remember. I’m sure my Dad was psyched. I was actually […]

The 6-for-5 Bin Attacks!
March 14th, 2010 by slangon

Here’s another pack worth of cards that I picked up at the old 6-4-5 bin. 1965 Topps #77 Doug Camilli Every now and again a baseball card comes along that just looks so appealing that I wish I were in it. This is one of those cards. The blue sky, the green grass, the palm […]
