Dealer Sponsor Announced

Community Gum has dipped into the online retail pool.  Over the past few weeks I've been working with Jon and Andy to get them to be the card dealer sponsor for Gint-A-Cuffs III.  Okay, they approached me, letting me know that they'd like to be the card dealer sponsor.  We talked a bit and they had to line some things up before announcing their dealer presence.  But I did work with them.  Really.  Ask Jon.  Don't ask Andy.

They've agreed to set aside one case of 2011 Topps Allen & Ginter for Gint-A-Cuffs participants.  Twelve boxes.  Each box for GAC will be priced at $81.99 with a slashed shipping price of $5.01.  That comes out to $87.00 delivered for those of you who are slightly math challenged.  But, if you're math challenged you probably shouldn't be involved in GAC.  Community Gum will have to charge and collect Illinois sales tax for Illinois residents.  (The Commissioner did not make this clear.  Forgiveness is asked for.)  Please check with Jon and Andy for all of the details.  You'll be dealing with them, not the Commissioner nor GAC.  But you figured that out, didn't you?

This is a first come, first served deal open only to the GAC participants.  One box per participant.  Community Gum wants to make sure that they can give back to the card bloggers, so let's be civil about this.

Thank you, Community Gum, for your generosity and all of us here at Gint-A-Cuffs wish you the greatest success in this venture.


  1. Thanks guys. While I've already pre-ordered my box at the same price, I thank you for doing this for us bloggers.

  2. Hey, I'm supporting my LCS. While it's slightly higher priced, Billy's a good guy and we need to keep his LCS around! He cares about the hobby and he tries to understand his customer's needs - that's why he keeps a bunch of singles for me to scrounge through!

  3. One small point I'd like to make. We only have to charge IL sales tax to IL residents. So for everyone else, it's a flat $87.00. Boxes are up for paypal ordering on our blog!
