Mets Through the Years: First Base
May 18th, 2012 by slangon

This is the fourth post in this series. We’ve looked at the field generals, the men who’ve donned the tools of ignorance, and the guys who’ve thrown the first pitch of the season. Today we’ll be taking a trip back through time to see who’s covered the first base bag for the Mets throughout their […]

Fruits of the Greatest Month: The Also-Rans
July 17th, 2011 by slangon

I know I said I was only going to show my 5 favorite cards from the swag that I landed in my best my best month ever as a collector, but there was a massive write in campaign from my readers that caused me to reverse directions. Well, 2 people left comments saying I should […]

Well, Well…
October 28th, 2010 by slangon

I feel as though I owe an apology to the San Francisco Giants and their fans. I was aware that they had a pretty darn good pitching staff, but it would seem that I have grossly underestimated their bats. I’m actually pretty impressed that they were able to achieve something that other, more impressive (at […]

Some More Sportlots Finds
February 19th, 2010 by slangon

When I declared 2010 to be “The Year of Vintage”, apparently, I wasn’t kidding. Here’s a smorgasbord of manager and coaches cards that I picked up. The more my vintage collection grows, it’s fun to notice that a lot of those guys I actually have cards from their playing days. I know I have Galen […]

Some More Sportlots
February 15th, 2010 by slangon

Since Topps is apparently taking its sweet-ass time activating the Million Card Giveaway, I thought I’d showcase some old cards that I got recently from Sportlots. Dollars to donuts they’re probably much cooler than anything I’m going to get from that giveaway anyways. I ended up with 39 cards for around $20 with shipping. Not […]

January 31st, 2010 by slangon

This is the first part of another successful haul from Sportlots. The second portion was coming from a separate seller, and has yet to arrive here at SlangKo World Headquarters. That particular group of cards will be dealt with at a later date. This group of cards, which will be dealt with right here and […]

Sometimes Trades Come from the Weirdest Places
November 20th, 2009 by slangon

Well, I guess this really isn’t a trade since I didn’t give anything up for them, but they’re a bunch of cards that found their way into my hands. And they came from my Dad of all people. My parents came to visit the other day and my Dad just hands me this stack of […]

eBay Stuff: The 1971 Version, Part B
August 27th, 2009 by slangon

So here’s the second half of the 1971 Topps Mets haul. Cool action shot, but I must say, possibly not the best choice of cropping. Which one is Bud Harrelson?¬†Couldn’t you have zoomed in on just the play at second? I guess we need to give props to whoever stuck that signature over there. Otherwise […]
