Happy Opening Day!
March 31st, 2014 by slangon

After a long and particularly brutal winter, it’s finally here – Opening Day 2014. It just rolls off the tongue. A day of renewal. A day of hope. A day when your team is undefeated. In honor of this happiest of days, I’ve created some custom cards of the Mets 2014 Opening Day lineup in […]

The Most Wonderful Day of the Year
April 1st, 2013 by slangon

Opening Day is finally here. I’m pumped, even though my favorite team is the Mets. So pumped in fact that I actually decided to post today. Huzzah. For those of you who care about things like this, ladies and gentlemen, your 2013 New York Metropolitans. Leading off and playing center field… Batting second and playing […]

You Gotta Take It Where You Can Get It, I Guess
July 29th, 2012 by slangon

So the Mets lost again last night. No big surprise there. It’s been almost 3 weeks since the All-Star game and the team has managed to win 2 games. Depressing. Rather than just be all doom and gloom, I’ve decided that I’m going to just look at the silver lining. For instance during last night’s […]

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 […]

Cards for Customs, Part 4
November 2nd, 2011 by slangon

Today I am finally going to put to rest the series of posts that I started on the swag that I scored from reader Michael in exchange for making him a custom 1938 Cubs card set. Funny how you get thrown off track by silly things like the World Series. I suppose todays episode really […]

Cards for Customs, Part 1
October 13th, 2011 by slangon

Many, many moons ago, I had shown some cards that I got from Chris of Project ’62 in exchange for doing a custom Hornsby relic card that turned into an entire custom set. An unexpected bonus of that deal was that after he showed the final product on his blog, some other folks saw it […]

Some Random Mets I Recently Got
August 29th, 2011 by slangon

So Hurricane Irene has come and gone and hopefully everyone who was in its path made it through safely. I personally was super lucky in that my house escaped 100% unscathed. I think the worse thing that happened was some of my garbage cans blew over, spilling grass clippings everywhere. Things in my corner of […]

A Trade Post That I Was Putting Off Because I Was Mad
April 26th, 2011 by slangon

Not mad about the trade mind you. Mad at the Mets. A while ago, I had bought a few random packs of 2011 Heritage and slapped together a post yammering away about my thoughts on the set. In that post I had mentioned that, although I liked this years heritage set a bit more than […]
