Late Sunday Afternoon Football (Cards)
October 14th, 2012 by slangon

As you may recall from my post last week, I had the opportunity to attend my first football game last Sunday. Despite the inclement weather (and man was it cold and wet) I had an absolute blast. I didn’t start off the game thinking that I would, though. If you didn’t see the game, the Giants […]

“Payment” from Project ’62: Part 5
July 10th, 2011 by slangon

As much as I would love to continue posting about how awesome the cards that Chris sent me for doing that custom card 7,000,000 years ago, I need to finish this out. So here’s the final push, and it should be no great surprise that I saved the best for last. 1957 Topps #39 Al […]

Are You Ready for a Pack Clash?
November 7th, 2010 by slangon

I’ve got a pretty nice afternoon laid out in front of me. The Jets start in about a half an hour. The Giants start at 4. In between I’ve got a fridge full of beer and a pot of chili going on the stove top. What better way to waste a Sunday afternoon? Let’s see […]

A Monday Night Pack Clash
October 25th, 2010 by slangon

Tonight’s pack clash, which will precede the main event of the New York Football Giants facing off against the Dallas Cowboys, will pit a pack of 2006 Upper Deck Football against a pack of 2008 Leaf Rookies & Stars. Both of these packs were acquired via an “Extreme Value Package” of repacked packs at Target. […]

A Sunday Afternoon Pack Clash
September 19th, 2010 by slangon

I don’t know why I don’t do more of these Pack Clashes. The whole idea of them is to buy 2 packs of cards and then have them face off by awarding arbitrary amounts of points to certain cards based on whatever happens to pop in my head upon looking at them. They’re fun and […]

Christmas Cards (The Kind Without Glitter) Part V
January 8th, 2010 by slangon

Part of my Christmas card haul included a little spree at Check Out My Cards. I had browsed through there on many occasions, and I often use it as a reference tool, both in researching cards and in making customs. This is the first time that I bought anything there, though. If you haven’t used […]

Sunday Afternoon Football (Cards): The Final Regular Season Game
January 3rd, 2010 by slangon

Last one for the regular season. My Giants ended their season with a bang last week, so I’ll just pretend that this week is just an exhibition game. I ordered a couple of boxes from Dave and Adam’s Card World last week and since I spent over $50 or whatever I got 4 free packs […]

Sunday Afternoon Football (Cards)
December 27th, 2009 by slangon

I almost can’t believe there’s only 2 regular season games left. Geez. Big day for the Football Giants. As usual, it’s a must win for them. Seems like going against the Panthers makes that a bit of an attainable goal. But then again, you never can tell with those Giants. I doubt we’re going to […]

And the Winner Is…
December 25th, 2009 by slangon

After running all the entries through the randomizer once for all 12 days of Christmas, Wicked Ortega came out on top. Congrats to him and thanks to everyone for taking part. Hopefully, some other people I send TTM requests to decide not to keep the second copy and I can have more of these giveaways.

This is your final warning. Leave a comment to get in on it. If you’ve already commented on past posts, you can comment again for an additional entry. All other details can be found HERE. I’m shooting for either Christmas Day or the day after for the actual drawing. Good luck, chuckleheads.
