Hello?
November 19th, 2013 by slangon

Anybody there? Probably not, considering it’s been 7 months since my last post. What can I say? Sometimes life gets in the way of baseball card blogging, right? Well, I guess that’s only half true. Things have been pretty hectic what with jobs and houses and kiddies and whatnot. Honestly, I probably could’ve found time […]

July 9th, 2012 by slangon

For the third year in a row, three Mets were named to the National League All-Star team in 1970. Buddy Harrelson was named to his first All-Star team in 1970, proof that the All-Star team wasn’t always based on offense. Gil Hodges had the honor of managing the National League All-Star team thanks to the […]

It’s 1962 All Over Again
April 11th, 2012 by slangon

And when I say it’s 1962 all over again, I mean that the Mets played the very first game in the history of the franchise 50 years ago today, a road game against the St. Louis Cardinals. Being in 1st place with a 4-1 record is about as far from 1962 that you can get. […]

Mets Through the Years: The Managers
March 5th, 2012 by slangon

Later on tonight, I will be doing something that I haven’t done in a crow’s age. I will be sitting on a couch, drinking a beer and watching LIVE METS BASEBALL!!! Granted, it’s spring training baseball and granted I won’t be home until about a half an hour after the game starts so most likely […]

November 19th, 2011 by slangon

A while back, Greg at the always excellent Night Owl Cards had posted a certain card of a certain Dodger from a certain 1960 Topps baseball card set that happened to be not only a card that I needed, but one that I had especially wanted for quite a while. In said post, he mentioned that […]

“Payment” from Project ’62: Part 5
July 10th, 2011 by slangon

As much as I would love to continue posting about how awesome the cards that Chris sent me for doing that custom card 7,000,000 years ago, I need to finish this out. So here’s the final push, and it should be no great surprise that I saved the best for last. 1957 Topps #39 Al […]

A Career Capping eBay Haul
June 22nd, 2010 by slangon

O.K. I admit it. Ever since I got that awesome haul of vintage cards from Chris over at Project ’62, I’ve been leaning on those Card of the Moment posts rather than writing about cards that I’ve obtained from other channels recently. That’s about to change right now. One of the challenges that I’ve found […]
