Some Junk Wax Gems
August 26th, 2011 by slangon

Not that I want to keep bring up old shit, but you remember a few weeks ago when I was doing a Junk Wax Pack Clash? One of the packs that I happened to be clashing was a pack of 1989 Topps that I discovered to my horror had been opened and then taped back […]

Opening Day 2011
April 1st, 2011 by slangon

After a long cold winter, Opening Day is finally here. I know, I know. Opening Day was technically yesterday, but for whatever reason the scheduling gods decided that the Mets wouldn’t open until today. I’m actually a little confused as to what happened. I always remember the very first game of the season happening on […]

Here we go with pack number 2. #286 Revolving Door (For the most part I’m a pretty big fan of the more out-there subjects in Allen & Ginter, but really? A revolving door? Out of all the things ever in the history of everything, that’s the best you could do?) #148 Anne Donovan #147 Cristian […]

Some Birthday Cards
June 30th, 2010 by slangon

Christmas Cards (The Kind Without Glitter)
December 29th, 2009 by slangon

It’s been quite a busy few days here at SlangKo Corporate. There was the obligatory last minute Christmas shopping. This was also the first holiday season with the baby, so of course we were running around to and fro visiting everybody that wanted to see the boy¬†. I finished up with the Johnny Lattner autograph […]

2003 Topps 205 Box Break: The Finale
December 5th, 2009 by slangon
