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 […]

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 […]
