Happy Opening Day!
March 31st, 2014 by slangon

After a long and particularly brutal winter, it’s finally here – Opening Day 2014. It just rolls off the tongue. A day of renewal. A day of hope. A day when your team is undefeated. In honor of this happiest of days, I’ve created some custom cards of the Mets 2014 Opening Day lineup in […]

A while back, Ryan from “O” No! Another Orioles Blog had contacted me about having some cards from my Mets wantlist.
