Well, That Was an Interesting Turn of Events…
November 14th, 2012 by slangon

So apparently the Florida Miami Marlins have finished shipping off anyone that was making any money on that team. Now Jose Reyes is a member of the Toronto Blue Jays. Oddly enough, this turn of events actually makes me pretty happy. I feel like now I can go back to rooting for Jose. When he […]

Cards From This Century
April 24th, 2012 by slangon

It’s been a little cold and damp around these parts lately. I had put Sunday aside to watch to the Mets/Giants game, which ended up getting postponed, setting up a Monday double header (which them stupid bums lost both games of. grrrr.). Because of that, I ended up running errands on Sunday rather than watching […]

One Reason to Watch Them Play Out the String
September 2nd, 2011 by slangon

So, September is upon us. This weekend is Labor Day already. We all know what that means. Even though there’s officially still 19 days left of the summer, it’s over. This is the last hoorah. For the Mets, that means 27 games left to play, and considering that they’re 22 games behind in the N.L. […]

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 […]

Taking A Break from Vintage
February 13th, 2010 by slangon

So I’ve finally been able to track down some 2010 Topps. I had been trying to get it from Target, just because one of the cooler things I’ve seen from this release so far has been the Red Back inserts, which are exclusive to Target. For whatever reason, the local Target has not gotten 2010 […]

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 […]

Card Replacement from Upper Deck
August 4th, 2009 by slangon

So it turned out that one of the three packages that I got in the mail the other day was from Upper Deck. A few months ago, I bought a blaster of 09 Goudey from the local Target and a mini blue back of James Shields that I pulled was all gnarled up on the […]
