Okay, it’s exactly what you think. It’s a trade post.
Hey, don’t complain too much. A) It’s something to post besides endless Moments & Milestones cards (still plenty up for trade, just click the tab at the top to lead you to the goods), and B) I’m one step closer to being caught up, and [...]
I’m sure all of us have been in a budget crunch situation multiple times in our lives. It’s only natural to see cash ebb as well as flow. I’m in the middle of an “ebb” cycle, and I’m expecting to stay firmly there until at least after the holidays.
That means no buying new cards. [...]
My “In Defense Of” post garnered quite a bit of attention for the site. Chris Olds and Susan Lulgjuraj from Beckett, VOTC – c0-host of Cardboard Connection Radio, a couple card blogs and various twitterers all picked up on the article and helped promote and discuss the issue.
When all was said and done we [...]
We’ve been down this road before.
It’s a good road. It’s a fun-filled road with interesting treasures to be discovered. A road laced with history.
But this is a fragile road because it’s made of cardboard.
It’s also a never-ending road to nowhere, because I don’t know what kind of metaphor or analogy or introduction [...]
In my most recent post, I sung the praises of the #TwitterTrade. Well…second verse, same as the first.
This time, I’m talking about Charles, aka @SWLVGUY. He’s another must-follow on there. Not only is he a great trader, as you’re about to see, but also a fantastic twitter ambassador for the hobby.
Oh, and he [...]
We almost adopted a cat recently. We were planning to wait until we get a house, but while shopping for our parents’ pets, we saw this certain cat. He was 9 years old and was given up by his previous owners simply because they had a kid and didn’t want to take care of both.
Why am I so excited about college basketball? A few reasons.
1) My Chicago Bulls aren’t likely to be too fun to watch until Derrick Rose returns from injury.
2) I think the college game is simultaneously infinitely more fun and infinitely more frustrating to watch due to the raw passion and hustle and lack [...]
Let’s compare something shall we?
McDonald's was a little early with the label
Frank Thomas – Two Time MVP Award Winner
2 MVP awards means 2 pictures
Not so fast, 80s graphic!
Tony Gwynn – Zero-Time MVP Award Winner
I know these two were never in direct competition for the award, [...]
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.
Yes, 500 posts. If this were the Hall of Fame, our [...]
How’s that for a deceptive post title?! But seriously, Jamie Moyer winning his first game of the season the other day (thus becoming the oldest pitcher to win a game in the history of baseball) happened literally hours after I had a conversation with a non-collector friend of mine.
So young. So… not old. [...]
