The Last of the Birthday Cards
July 5th, 2010 by slangon

Okay, so I finally got around to scanning that blaster of 2010 Topps Series 2 that the wife gave me for me birthday. I wanted to get this done quick so I could start in on busting that box of Ginter for Gint-A-Cuffs. It’s been laying around my house for a few days now, and […]

SlangKo Heroes of the Diamond 16-20
January 20th, 2010 by slangon

Things have been quite busy here at SlangKo Corporate HQ in preparation for spring training. I’ve decided to dispatch a gaggle of customs to Port St. Lucie in an attempt to get me some Metsie autos. Of course when I ran through the list of players, I came up with 26 dudes I wanted to […]

Trade With the Night Owl
January 6th, 2010 by slangon

A while back, I had busted up a pack or two of T206 (I know it’s officially known as just 206, but I will continue to call it T206). In said packs, I had received a Dodger or two. A certain Owl who apparently only comes out at night had contacted me about the availability […]

Christmas Cards (The Kind Without Glitter)
December 29th, 2009 by slangon

It’s been quite a busy few days here at SlangKo Corporate. There was the obligatory last minute Christmas shopping. This was also the first holiday season with the baby, so of course we were running around to and fro visiting everybody that wanted to see the boy¬†. I finished up with the Johnny Lattner autograph […]

November 27th, 2009 by slangon

Now we’re getting to the good stuff – the cards. Pack 1 – #24 Luis Gonzalez #41 Manny Ramirez Whaaaat? Who the hell is this guy on Manny Ramirez’ card? Security! Seriously folks, in my mind 2003 is not that long ago, but looking at these cards, I feel like it’s 20 years ago. I […]

Another Trade
September 22nd, 2009 by slangon

I make a few trades every now and again on a website called Sports Card Fun, which is basically a forum where people post cards that they’re looking to trade or get, and you work out whatever deals. I never really work out anything ground breaking, mostly just set building. Because of this, a lot […]
