Important Announcement! Community Gum: The Store!

It’s been in the works behind the scenes for a while now, but the unveiling can finally occur.

We are proud to announce that Community Gum is now an online retailer.

This is a step we’ve been wanting to take for some time, and it’s finally actually happening. It will be slow going to start […]

I Met A Pack Searcher

Do you ever get that adrenaline rush coursing through your body right before something’s going to go down? It could be a car accident. It could be people moshing a little too roughly at a concert. It could be an unexpected meeting with the boss. Your body is psyching yourself up for confrontation. It’s screaming […]

It’s Almost Group Break Time!

It’s been a couple months since I’ve last held a group break of my own. First, it was the wedding holding me back. I guess that’s my first taste of the term “ball and chain,” eh? Now, it’s more a lack of funds. I know not everyone buys the boxes ahead of time, but I […]

Ok…I’m Convinced This Is Intentional

I don’t remember who re-kindled the discussion recently (I think it was Night Owl), but a couple blogs ran with the differences between the 60 Years of Topps/Cards Your Mother Threw Out reprints versus the original cards.

The general consensus from the comments was that Topps is lazy and why the heck can’t they match […]

Since No One Is Really Commenting Lately

Why, yes, I am still behind in my trade posts. Thank you for asking. What’s that? You want to see one? Oh, I must have misheard. No one said anything. Well, since no one took me up on either of my recent trade bait posts, the punishment is to read an incoming trade. I’m sure […]

STICKARZZ!!!!!! (for Trade)

If you’re anything like me, and there’s a small chance that you are considering you read the blog, you geek out a little bit with sticker albums.

Probably the best hobby news I’ve heard all year was that Panini was making an NBA sticker album. Then Topps announced they’re doing an MLB album later this […]

Don’t Vote For Me (aka Indecision 2011)

By now most of you have heard about Topps’ latest fan interactive effort. They are conducting a poll on their facebook page to determine the three next die-cut cards to be put up as prizes in the Diamond Giveaway promotion.

From the title, you may think that this is just going to be an extension […]

I Bought A Repack Box

There. I said it. I’m not necessarily proud of it, but we’ve all been there.

I bought this in a particularly down time in my collecting life. I was on the hunt for some new NBA Sticker hotness (find my want/trade list on my trade page) and again had come up empty. I needed to […]

Diversify Your Portfolio

Others may disagree, but I consider myself an optimist.

I try to find the best slant in every situation, but let’s face it. The Cubs are already out of it this year. They certainly had a chance entering the season thanks to a piss-poor Central Division and if they came out strong from the jump, […]
