December 23rd, 2009 by slangon

I picked up some pretty nice cards on eBay over the last week or two. What with the Blizzard of ’09 and general holiday nuttiness, I haven’t had a chance to post them until now. First up, we have a 2008 Goudey John Maine Jersey. Ahh, the good old days, last year, when I still […]

Organizing My Cards: Part I
July 31st, 2009 by slangon

Recently, I’ve been in the process of trying to add some sort of physical organization to my collection. I don’t have the worlds biggest collection by any means, but I still own a few thousand cards, spanning over 75 years. That’s a lot of cards to organize, especially when you only have a few minutes […]
