I Guess That’s One Way to Stop a Losing Streak
June 28th, 2012 by slangon

In case you didn’t hear, yesterday the Mets beat the Cubs by the score of 17-1. In honor of that feat, here are 17 Mets cards that were part of a massive, 109 card order that I picked up off of Sportlots recently. Enjoy. And just to be fair, the Cubbies did score one run, […]

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 […]

“O” Yeah! It’s a Trade.
September 4th, 2011 by slangon

A while back, Ryan from “O” No! Another Orioles Blog had contacted me about having some cards from my Mets wantlist. Obviously, I’m always down to chip away at the holes in my Mets collection, so a deal was struck, cards were mailed out and delivered, despite not one, but two natural disasters taking place.┬áThe […]

Way to Photo Edit, Upper Deck
September 9th, 2010 by slangon

One of the many things I enjoy thinking about when looking at my baseball cards (Yes, I do often look at them. I don’t just file them away into books and boxes and let them collect dust and appreciate in value.) is trying to picture what the player on the card thinks when they see […]

Return of the Son of the 6 for $5 Bin
February 9th, 2010 by slangon

Here we go with yet another “pack” from the 6-for-5 bin down at the local card shop. Let’s see what goodies we’ll get today. 1957 Topps #96 Hank Aguirre This is the second ’57 Topps that I pulled out of that box. So far, those have been the oldest cards I’ve seen in there, which […]

Thanks Cards on Cards, Thanks A Lot
January 27th, 2010 by slangon

A while ago, Cards on Cards held a little College Bowl Pick ‘Em contest. I had the dubious distinction of being the worst out of everyone when it came to picking the winners of College Bowl games. Madding was good enough to send some prizes my way as a way of enabling my poor football […]

A Steaming Pile of Stuff To Do, Part VI
November 12th, 2009 by slangon

The 90’s portion of the box. Or at least my favoritest. 1991 Baseball Card Price Guide Monthly #25 Howard Johnson – A weird card I’d never seen before. Blatant rip-off of 71 Topps, which is cool with me. On the back, instead of stats, it has “Pocket Price Guide” Card Values. Hojo’s 83 Donruss ran […]

Jumping on The 6 in 30 Bandwagon
September 9th, 2009 by slangon

So the folks over at Dinged Corners had issued a challenge a few days back. A bunch of people had taken up said challenge, and since it looked like so much fun, I thought I’d try my hand at it as well. Here’s the basic gist of the thing: 1) Grab a binder full of […]
