The Fastest Trade in the East
August 10th, 2011 by slangon

For the last month or so, this blog has been clogged up with all the cards that I scored during the month of June. That doesn’t mean that things weren’t happening, and happening quickly. Last week, AJ from The Lost Collector had contacted me about a card that he had for me from the 1960 […]

A Trade Post That I Was Putting Off Because I Was Mad
April 26th, 2011 by slangon

Not mad about the trade mind you. Mad at the Mets. A while ago, I had bought a few random packs of 2011 Heritage and slapped together a post yammering away about my thoughts on the set. In that post I had mentioned that, although I liked this years heritage set a bit more than […]

Countdown to Opening Day: 2
March 30th, 2011 by slangon

2 more. I can’t hardly take it. Doning the tools of ignorance for the 1986 New York Mets is Hall of Famer Gary Edmund Carter. The 1986 season was the Kid’s 2nd year in Queens and he certainly lived up to any expectations Mets fans had when the team traded for him. He hit .255 […]

My Thoughts on the Mets Going Forward: The Infield & The Bench
December 31st, 2010 by slangon

Some Home Grown Goodness
August 11th, 2010 by slangon

In case you haven’t noticed, I haven’t spent a whole lot of time recently addressing the trials and tribulations of the New York Mets, other than to occasionally throw out an exasperated comment here and there. I guess that happens when you have a team that was looking pretty good prior to the All-Star break, […]

Gint-A-Cuffs: Rounds 5-8
July 11th, 2010 by slangon

So apparently nobody in the Mets organization has been paying attention to my well thought-out treatise on why it is so important for them to win games against the Braves. They’ve already lost a disastrous 2 games against them, putting them 5 games behind. Hopefully Johan Santana can work his magic and at least salvage […]

A Crinkly Kind of Trade
June 20th, 2010 by slangon

First off, I just want to take this opportunity to wish a happy Father Day to all you Dad’s out there. To me there’s always a special connection between baseball and my Dad, so I think fathers hold a special place in the card collecting community. I’d especially like to wish a happy Fathers Day […]
