December 2017 Ebay Wins Part 1

November may have been a lighter month, but December made up for it. As you can tell from the title, I’ll need a second part to get through it all. It’s interesting to look back and see how this all shakes out. I can try to speculate as to why I find more on certain […]

Introducing the Chris Coghlan Collection

This is part three of a twenty-five part series chronicling my budding collections of the 2016 World Series champion Cubs. Obviously, I’ve already starting showing off some of those cards, but I wanted to offer a formal introduction to the various players. With my legacy player collections, I’m still going to attempt to show every […]

A Big Trade with Mini Collector Bill – Part 3

A Big Trade with Mini Collector Bill – Part 1

I’ve been holding off on posting some of my more recent trades here, but it’s really time I changed that. The main reason I did is that was the National. I put together some trade bait posts that attracted minimal attention, but at some point I had to lock down my want lists before the […]

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 […]
