1985 was another big year for the Mets when it came to All-Stars. For the second year in a row they sent 4 guys to the game. In his first year with the Mets, Carter was named to his 8th All-Star team. Unfortunately, Terry Kennedy and Ozzie Virgil got all the playing time, leaving Kid […]

The Last of the Trades… For Now
September 11th, 2009 by slangon

And probably my favorite. This one comes from everybody’s favorite Orioles fan, Beardy. I disremember exactly what I sent him, but I seem to recall a Prospect set from the National that I won from The Anti-Becket, an 09 Ginter Adam Jones mini, an 09 Ginter Sphinx card, and a hand full of random these […]
