July 2017 Ebay Wins

I have an idea. This wasn’t intentional, but I think I could play a little Ebay Uno with this month’s wins. You all know Uno, right? You go around and play cards that either match the number/letter or the color of the card on the face-up stack. For this little game, there are no wild […]

Gint-A-Cuffs 9: Packs 19-24 – The Finale

It all comes down to this. 6 packs left. A lot of points need to come close to first. Looking at the leader board, it’s not looking good for this home team. Still, gotta run it out to first for the sportsmanship of it, right?

June 2017 Ebay Wins

In typical Community Gum fashion, this monthly series hasn’t been featured on the blog since June when I displayed my May winnings. I’m stealing about 30 minutes from my nighttime work schedule to put this out because I want to post something and don’t feel like finishing up the Gint-A-Cuffs posts tonight.

June was a […]

Gint-A-Cuffs 9: Packs 13-18

Half of the box is behind us, and it left two of the three promised hits on the scoring table. With that red Brooklyn mini in there as well, there may not be a whole lot more to boost this box score.

Talking about it isn’t going to help me find out for sure, so […]

Gint-A-Cuffs 9: Packs 7-12

Back again with part two. I feel like the first fourth of the box was pretty solid. Can we keep the momentum going here? Probably not, but who knows. I know it’s going to be an uphill battle without the foil hot box bonus on my side anyway.

Gint-A-Cuffs 9: Boxtopper and Packs 1-6

I’m back for another year of pack fighting. Last year, I managed to grab second place. It was a tough loss. I found a nice book card in my box, but it was no match for a double rip card. Them’s the breaks. We’re not going to find another book card, but maybe we’ll be […]

Topps Bunt – An Examination of Two Extremes in Parallel Construction

Topps Bunt has only been around as a physical product for a couple years now (as opposed to the digital app) but it’s made a pretty big impression on me.

I think the most appealing part of it is that it’s a budget product that isn’t just a simple rehash like Opening Day or a […]

May 2017 Ebay Wins

I know that some people don’t use ebay as part of their collecting adventures, and I sometimes envy those people. It can be a fickle and frustrating process at times, but I find it to be a pretty necessary.

Trading is fantastic (and I’m finally trying to do more of it). Card shows are a […]

Trade Bait – 2017 Topps Gypsy Queen

Hey there! Take my cards! I have cards. You need cards.

What can you send my way? Take a look at this page right HERE. I’m willing to trade in your favor if it means getting stuff out of my house faster. Also, if you’re not sure if you have anything from my player specific […]
