Congratulations to Mike Piazza on Your Well Deserved Hall of Fame Election
Way To Go BBWAA

January 9th, 2013 by slangon

So Mike Piazza has not been voted into the Hall of Fame, getting only 57% of the vote. Apparently though, he’s in good company as no one has been voted in. Since I’ve already scanned them though, here’s some Mikey P. cards that I was going to show had he made the cut. Piazza (and […]

Mets Through the Years: Third Base
September 4th, 2012 by slangon

Man, I’ve been slacking on this series. I still have 5 positions left to go and only about a month left in the season. We’ve already looked at the managers, catchers, Opening Day starting pitchers, first basemen and second basemen. We’ve also gone through the players the Mets have sent to the All-Star Game every […]

I Actually Bought a Pack of Baseball Cards
August 27th, 2012 by slangon

You know the story. You’re at Target and/or Walmart running errands and happen by the card aisle. Of course you can’t just walk by without just popping your head in to see what’s that haps.

Thanks Cards on Cards, Thanks A Lot

Sometimes Trades Come from the Weirdest Places
November 20th, 2009 by slangon

Well, I guess this really isn’t a trade since I didn’t give anything up for them, but they’re a bunch of cards that found their way into my hands. And they came from my Dad of all people. My parents came to visit the other day and my Dad just hands me this stack of […]

A Steaming Pile of Stuff To Do, Part III
November 6th, 2009 by slangon

Before I get into this, I just want to touch on two points. First, I don’t know if I’ve mentioned this before, but I live in ┬áNew Jersey and work in Manhattan, which means I have about an hour and 15 minute commute by train/subway in the morning. Normally, this time is very relaxing for […]
