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 […]

Kerry Wood By the Numbers

Work, vacation, work, sickness, and work have kept me away from the blog for awhile again. I will never understand how many of you post so regularly. I have quite a bit to talk about soon and series to continue, new ones to start, National cards to show off, and trade bait to post. Oh, […]

Digging Out From the Trade Backlog (Trade with Nolan’s Dugout) – Part 2

If you missed part one of the loot I received from Kyle at Nolan’s Dugout, then click on this link.

As a quick recap, I sent him some Topps online exclusive code giveaway die cuts, and he sent me stuff I could actually use. A lot of stuff. So much stuff that there will at […]

Another Non-National Card Show Post

I went to a new sort of local card show back in May. Well, it’s not a new show. It’s new to me. Located in Orland Park, this has been going on every month for some time. I’ve thought about making the trek out, but couldn’t convince myself to drive that far for an unknown.

Pre-National Card Show Post (Shown Way After Actually Going To The National)

In June of 2014, I went to a card show in Rockford.

First, we’ll start with the Cubs team set I bought for $5. At the time I needed 2 cards, but now the rest are either trade bait, or they’ll come in handy if I choose another Cub to replace Starlin.

The kid […]

2015 NSCC #6 – Seeing Multiples

My last National post was all about cards I had, but bought again because I’m a dumb piece of dumb that’s dumb in the head.

Today, I want to focus on the positive side of the doubles spectrum. What follows aren’t exactly duplicates, they’re parallels. It’s understandable that some dealers would have more than one […]

Maddux Overload – 1996 Edition

1996.

The Dallas Cowboys won their third championship in 4 years (and haven’t won since).

Chicago, and Michael Jordan, returns to the NBA Finals to win their 4th title. This capped the record-breaking 72-10 season.

Devastation struck Atlanta when a bomb went off during the Summer Olympic games.

Stefi Graf, again, is one major away […]

It’s a COMC X-Mas (2013, Part 3 of 5)

Forgot to Set My Watch, Man

Look, I ain’t no Harper Lee, but it sure feels like I’ve been making Cards on Cards wait a long time for the sequel to our trade post. For a refresher, here’s the first section with the oh so clever title. That post covered my other player collections. This one will be all Gwynn all […]
