Cards from Cards on Cards
December 16th, 2009 by slangon

I’ve had a bit of a dry spell as far as trades go lately. Recently however, I did manage to negotiate a pretty good one with Kerry from Cards on Cards. I gave him a big stack of ’09 Ginters, which in itself was good for me, since I’m getting sick of looking at all […]

Sometimes Trades Come from the Weirdest Places
November 20th, 2009 by slangon

Well, I guess this really isn’t a trade since I didn’t give anything up for them, but they’re a bunch of cards that found their way into my hands. And they came from my Dad of all people. My parents came to visit the other day and my Dad just hands me this stack of […]

A Steaming Pile of Stuff To Do, Part VI
November 12th, 2009 by slangon

The 90’s portion of the box. Or at least my favoritest. 1991 Baseball Card Price Guide Monthly #25 Howard Johnson – A weird card I’d never seen before. Blatant rip-off of 71 Topps, which is cool with me. On the back, instead of stats, it has “Pocket Price Guide” Card Values. Hojo’s 83 Donruss ran […]

A Steaming Pile of Stuff To Do, Part V
November 11th, 2009 by slangon

We’re getting down to it folks. This is the start of the box of cards that Mark from Stats on the Back sent me. To break it down, the box contained exactly 206 cards, 1 of which was a double and 5 of which I happen to have. For all you calculator jockeys out there, […]

A Steaming Pile of Stuff To Do, Part III
November 6th, 2009 by slangon

Before I get into this, I just want to touch on two points. First, I don’t know if I’ve mentioned this before, but I live in ┬áNew Jersey and work in Manhattan, which means I have about an hour and 15 minute commute by train/subway in the morning. Normally, this time is very relaxing for […]

Mail Day with Waxaholic
October 2nd, 2009 by slangon

This trade comes to us from Captain Canuck in the far North. I sent him some ’09 Ginter needs, and he was supposed to do the same. As you’ll see, he did that and a bit more. What was supposed to be in the trade were these Ginters: #50 Pat Neshek #159 Denard Span #170 […]

Thanks to the Generosity of Others…
September 27th, 2009 by slangon

…I got me some new cards. Two manilla envelopes, to be precise. First up, a couple of weeks ago, The Great Sports Name Hall of Fame was having a little give-away. Of course I signed up, and very much to my surprise, won. I ended up picking Prize #3, 50 baseball cards. For brevity’s sake, […]

Nachos Grande’s Cards For Clunkers Program
September 15th, 2009 by slangon

So a week or two ago, Nachos Grande announced their Card For Clunkers 2.0 Program. It’s such a good idea, I might need to steal it. Of course that would involve me getting off my ass and figuring out what cards I would include, so don’t hold your breath. Anyway, here’s the basic gist of […]

Jumping on The 6 in 30 Bandwagon
September 9th, 2009 by slangon

So the folks over at Dinged Corners had issued a challenge a few days back. A bunch of people had taken up said challenge, and since it looked like so much fun, I thought I’d try my hand at it as well. Here’s the basic gist of the thing: 1) Grab a binder full of […]
