Survey Says…
November 16th, 2011 by slangon

I know I’m a little behind the times on this, but I’d been meaning to do it for a while now. Getting that Craig Swan autograph in the mail a few days ago just reminded me of it. In case you missed it, a week or 2 ago, Nachos Grande posted a questionnaire for all […]

Are You Ready for Some Playoff Football?
January 8th, 2011 by slangon

I still find it kind of funny how as a Giants fan, I can still root for the Jets. As a Mets fan, I wouldn’t even dream of rooting for the Yankees. Football is a weird sport. Good luck tonight, boys. I feel like you’ll need it against this guy.

The State of the Blog, 2011
January 3rd, 2011 by slangon

2010 is a deader. The Christmas decorations are down. 2011 has begun. Last year, I spent some time writing a post about how I wanted to focus my collecting habits a bit, and surprisingly, I think it actually helped quite a bit. I say surprisingly because usually I’m not one who’s good with resolutions and […]

Are You Ready for Some Football (Cards)?
October 3rd, 2010 by slangon

In last weeks Sunday Afternoon Football post, I mentioned that I had sent some custom cards to a few Giants players hoping to score a couple of sweet TTM’s. Instead, I ended up with a Giants Fan Pack. While I was disappointed that I didn’t get the cards back signed, the stuff in the Fan […]

Embarking on Another Custom Voyage
September 13th, 2010 by slangon

In case you missed it, as part of the prize package for the contest that I ran celebrating the 1st Anniversary of staring this blog, I gave away a complete set of the 2010 SlangKo Heroes of the Diamond Set. I did this first of all so I would have a kind of cool prize […]

Some Home Grown Goodness
August 11th, 2010 by slangon

In case you haven’t noticed, I haven’t spent a whole lot of time recently addressing the trials and tribulations of the New York Mets, other than to occasionally throw out an exasperated comment here and there. I guess that happens when you have a team that was looking pretty good prior to the All-Star break, […]

A Tough Luck TTM Success
June 9th, 2010 by slangon

It seems like while I was busy with that Series 2 box break, my mailbox was working over time. This was one of the things that popped out of it. 2010 SlangKo Sport Stars #28 Daniel Murphy I was pretty glad to get this through-the-mail request back since Murph is one of my favorite players […]

My First Spring Training TTM Success
February 28th, 2010 by slangon

I’m not sure if I mentioned it before, but since this is my first Spring Training since I started collecting TTM autographs, I kind of went a little nuts with sending out requests to the Mets camp. I think 26 was the final tally, all custom cards. That meant designing 26 cards, making 52 cards […]
