And the Cards Are…
August 22nd, 2010 by slangon

I guess it’s about time to stop dragging my feet and put an end to the Offical Condition: Poor First Anniversary Giveaway Contest. Here are the cards that I got from the Topps Million Card Giveaway. 1958 #117 Frank Torre Joe’s older brother. Great looking card. I’m digging that old-timey Braves logo. 1959 #409 Gus […]

August 2nd, 2010 by slangon

I didn’t really do a whole bunch of blogging, or even thinking for that matter, about baseball cards over the weekend, but today I realized that Saturday marked the 1 year anniversary of me making my very first post here at Condition: Poor.

Huzzah! It’s a Contest!
January 21st, 2010 by slangon

A few weeks ago, I was lucky enough to get Carl Erskine’s autograph through the mail. As has been my practice recently, I sent along 2 copies of the card and offered him one to keep if he wanted. He declined and sent back both cards signed. Now I am offering the second copy up […]
