I am looking to buy a new printer.

The thing I print the most is tuckboxes on card stock (110 lb). It seems like many inkjet printers have an issue with this weight of paper.

I don't print very much (~10 pages per month). (So it really doesn't make sense for me to spend tons on printer).

I have a Mac.

Ideally, I'd like a printer that can network print because I'd like to buy looking forward and I figure that continuing to tie my printer to a computer is the way of the past.

I don't care about scanning, copying, etc. just the printing. Although I don't mind if my printer does those things.

Anybody have a good recommendation?

I've got a couple of Epson Workforce inkjet printers and not had any issues with printing on card stock. I know many printers that have a tray for paper also have an alternate paper feed that has more of a straight through path - that might work better for some cardstock.

I used to print a ton of tuck boxes but have since switched to just using Hugo's Amazing tape, but when I break out a game that I've printed tuck boxes for I actually am more impressed by the ones I printed on photo paper vs card stock - they just seem to have a nicer finish on them.

I haven't actually tried this, but you might consider skipping a printer and printing photos at walgreens/costco/walmart. You can get an 8x10 for under 2$. Experiment with the finish, and you might get something nicer than you can produce at home.
