The Buffalo Bills lost their third straight Super Bowl.
Monica Seles was stabbed by a crazy fan on the tennis court.

Several months ago, I participated in a trade bait draft over at The Daily Dimwit’s place. At the time, I wasn’t actively trading, so that I could catch up on my backlog a bit more. Still, I wanted to get in on it, because there were several hits I was hoping to snag for my [...]
I think the title speaks for itself, but for those who just love to hear our voices and occasionally see our faces, check out the two videos below! I would review them formally, but I’ve pretty much summed it all up in my Series 1 & Series 2 reviews and with what we say as [...]
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 [...]
We did it for series 1, so you know we had to do it for series 2. 5 whole cases of the stuff. That’s a lot of wrappers, a lot of cards, and a lot of work. Something tells me 2 will be our limit going forward.
Let’s dispense with the pleasantries, shall we? Everyone [...]
Phew! Who knew baseball cards could be so much work! Still, even after opening five Jumbo cases for our business venture, you won’t hear either of us complaining (well, maybe after 16 hours straight of back-breaking sorting). You’ve seen a little taste of what to expect on our video from a few days ago, and [...]
I think by now you guys have figured out I’m a fan of large group breaks. I love variety. I love value. I love cards, and I love seeing or opening things that would otherwise go unseen or unopened.
(What’s that you say? I have an 11 box Topps group break currently taking sign-ups? Why, [...]
In my never-ending (and barely-begun) search for all things Stadium Club (baseball-only, non-sticker-auto’d, not-numbered<50), I’ve had to make some seriously questionable purchases. In fact, I’ve made many so far that I’ve not even gotten around to shaming myself with on the blog. But this one I’m moving to the front of the pack because my [...]
There’s no doubt in my mind that I’m the last person from BA Benny’s Baseball Card Buffet’s massively awesome group break to show off their goods. I’ve seen a couple of you go through the piles of cards in extreme detail, and most of you give a couple key highlights. I’ll be in that latter [...]
Our Lineage Group Break went off without a hitch a couple weeks ago. All of the cards for claimed teams were packaged up the same night and shipped next day. A couple people have even posted their hauls on their blogs, which is great to see.
Now, it’s time to show what’s left over. We [...]
