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 […]

Proceeds from the Cards for Junk Program
February 7th, 2012 by slangon

Back about a million years ago (or at least it seems that long ago to me) (seriously, it took me about 20 minutes of hitting “Older Posts” and scrolling down to find the post I was looking for), The Cardboard Junkie put out a call for all your blank pack searcher decoy thingies in exchange […]

Time to Address That Growing Pile of Manilla Envelopes
October 5th, 2011 by slangon

I don’t know about you, but I often seem to run into this problem. A manilla envelope shows up in my mailbox and I know that it means one thing: sweet, sweet cardboard. Sometimes, I have the time to crack that sucker open right then and there and see what’s in it, sometimes I don’t. […]

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 […]

2003 Topps 205 Box Break: The Finale
December 5th, 2009 by slangon

Here’s our final push to get this sucker done. I apologize in advance for all the terrible scans. I never realized how careless you get when you’re scanning 1,000 cards at one time. Anyway, here we go. Pack 15: #22 Mike Scioscia #45 Brian Jordan #21 Bobby Cox A couple of years ago, Bobby Broke […]

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 […]
