That Was Fascinating.
February 9th, 2011 by slangon

I’ve never given much thought to Panini. Not that I have anything against them. I just never gave them much thought. I think I might’ve inadvertently picked up a pack or two of their cards here and there. I kind of remember them being cool, but who knows. On their official blog today, though, there […]

How Close are They to a Million?
February 25th, 2010 by slangon

I was noticing that Topps had set up a Facebook page for the Million Card Giveaway and started poking around on it. I found a very interesting link on it that provided this information (although I’m not sure why that information is on a server for soft soled slippers for kids): CARDS UNLOCKED BY YEAR… […]

As most anyone who reads the growing circle of sports card related blogs must know by now, Mario over at Wax Heaven has shut down his blog, which was one of the most popular, entertaining and informative in the blog-o-sphere. It certainly seems that his departure will create a huge hole in the world of […]

This Almost Blew My Mind
September 17th, 2009 by slangon

I’m in the middle of preparing a post that I’m sure you’ve all been feverishly waiting for (insert sarcastic tone here). In the meantime, I saw this posted on Ballcard Mania’s site, with a link to this article. Can you imagine? I get excited when I find a quarter in the couch cushions.

You know… for kids!
