A Sunday Afternoon Football Card
November 28th, 2010 by slangon

Last week, I was talking about how I thought it was strange that after just one loss to the Cowboys, the Giants went from being the cream of the NFC to being a team on the brink. Well, after another sad loss to the Eagles, it seems they really are a team on the brink. […]

Vintage Sunday Afternoon Football
November 21st, 2010 by slangon

Before I get into todays card, I just want to point out something I’ve noticed in the short time I’ve been following football semi-seriously, which may be obvious to those of you that have always been big football fans, but to someone whose used to following the 162 game baseball season, it sort of weird. […]

And So It Starts
October 27th, 2010 by slangon

As we all know, the World Series starts tonight with the Texas Rangers facing off against the San Francisco Giants. I wonder if the Texas fans are still stinging a little after another team called the Giants came in and pretty much put the last nail in coffin of the Cowboys season. I also wonder […]

Congratulations to the Texas Rangers for defeating the New York Yankees to become the 2010 American League Champs, and move on to the World Series for the first time in the history of their franchise.

More from the Virtual Quarter Bin
October 9th, 2010 by slangon

A few posts ago I had mentioned that I had picked up some cards in the electronic version of the quarter bin. I happened to be buying some cards I needed for my 1960 set off of this one dude on Sportlots and noticed that he had a bunch of cards listed at $0.30 and […]

1963 Topps #356 John Schaive Today’s Card of the Moment comes to us from one of my favorite Topps sets, the 1963 offering. It is of Washington utility infielder John Schaive. There’s not a whole bunch that one could say about John’s Major League career. He played parts of 5 seasons, all for the Washington […]

Are You Ready for Some Football… cards?
September 12th, 2010 by slangon

Ahh yes. Finally we’ve arrived at the first foosball game of the season, at least for the Giants. Yes, that’s right. I’m still a Giants fan. As I sat there watching that pre-season all New York game I found myself rooting against the Jets. So I guess that answered my quandary. I’m rather relieved at […]

Card of the Moment #48
September 11th, 2010 by slangon

1961 Topps #351 Jim King Today’s Card of the Moment is about 95% of a 1961 Topps Jim King card. Jim spent 11 years playing Major League baseball with 6 different teams. The majority of that time was spent in the nations capital, but he also made stops in Chicago (both the North Side and […]
