I’m almost caught up with all my trade packages. I know, I know. I’m as surprised as you are. Of course with my semi-weekly trade bait posts going strong, I expect to be very far behind again very soon. Still, by my count I have about five people more to thank and then I’ll really [...]
The Dallas Cowboys handed the Buffalo Bills their 4th straight Super Bowl loss, earning their second consecutive win in the process.

It’s not hard to feel like you’re moving backwards in this hobby sometimes. A new set or two gets released in rapid fire and your want lists suddenly explode, all while you’re still trying (unsuccessfully) to tread water on the last couple sets.

Just like a player out by a mile on a Play at the Plate (hint, hint), I’ve got Frank Thomas’ number. And it’s 0692/3500.
I'd say that's an accurate description.
Brian sent over a couple cards this summer either as his part of a trade or as another one of his random gifts. I [...]

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 [...]
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.
