Some Recent Pick-Ups
November 23rd, 2011 by slangon

Just a quickie today. These are a couple of cards I recently snagged from eBay. First up is a Hammerin’ Hank All-Star that has seen better days. At least whoever owned this previously had the respect to not put tape all the way across Henry’s face. The back of this card is a bit more […]

During yesterday’s extra-inning, rain delayed game against the Marlins, Jose Reyes went 3 for 6 with a walk to propel himself back into the top spot in the National League in batting average over Ryan Braun.

I do believe I might’ve jinxed the Metsies last night by showing all the old Angels cards in yesterdays post. To try and counter that, here’s a basketful of old Mets cards, none of which have been on this blog before. Enjoy and Let’s Go Mess Mets.
