Back in the early days of this blog we picked up a cheap box of 2008 Bowman Chrome Baseball. Oh, how young and naive we were back then. (Why yes, we did pick up a box of 2011 Bowman Draft Picks & Prospects as well.)
Since Bowman is all about the prospect cards, you really [...]

It took much longer than it ever should have, but Community Gum has now reached the 500 post milestone.
It’s a momentous occasion that’s sure to go down in the annals of card bloggery as “another blog post.” Try not to get too teary-eyed.
