COMC Hot List – taking a holiday break!

HI everyone! We’re very sorry for the lateness of this post, things have been hopping here at COMC as we’re gearing up for the last few days of the 2013 holiday season.

Making that list, and checking it twice…

We should have made this announcement yesterday, but the COMC Hot List is taking a break for the holidays; we have some folks taking time off to visit their families, making observances for the times, or just giving themselves a little break from all the high energy of these days.

With this in mind, we’re going to suspend the COMC Hot List until January 8th. When the holiday dust settles, and things return to something that resembles normal around here, we’ll be getting back into the swing of things and the Hot List will be making it’s way back.

Thanks for being a part of the madness and fun that is COMC. And, if we don’t get a chance to tell you later, we hope you all have a great and safe holiday season.

COMC Hot List: December 4th to December 18th

Hello COMC Nation! So, there’s all this talk about “Turkey-this” and “Something-Friday” and some dude named “Santa” sneaking down chimneys sometime in December? Really? Sounds a little dodgy to us, ya know? But, you know what’s totally legit? That’s right, the COMC Hot List! It’s that time, once again, where we let you know what cards we’re thinking are going to be big sellers and we give you the opportunity to get them on COMC.com as quickly as possible.

So, here it is…the COMC Hot List for December 4th to December 18th!

The Hot List Theme

Since one of the biggest American holidays of the year (Thanksgiving, in case you missed it…) just passed us by, we thought it would be fun if we made the theme somewhat holiday-related. So, we’re accepting any Topps Turkey cards, as part of the COMC Hot List.

So what does being on the Hot List mean?

COMC wants to encourage our users to get these hot cards into your accounts to offer for sale as quickly as possible, so starting today, any cards submitted for the Hot List will qualify for our “Hot List Special” processing. With this service, you will receive One Day processing at the special Hot List price: $0.50 per raw card and $1.00 per graded, encased, or jumbo card.

  • Clearly write “Hot List Special” on the outer mailing package and/or the address label.
  • $5 minimum batch fee (We recommend submitting 10+ items.)
  • 200 item maximum per week
  • Must be postmarked by December 18th, 2013
  • Can be mailed to either our US or Canadian office
  • Any submissions received on a Friday or Saturday may not be processed until the following Monday.
  • Submissions with non-Hot List items mixed in will be downgraded to One Week service.
  • Redemption cards may qualify for Hot List pricing, but will take up to a week to process.

You’re welcome to submit Hot List batches at the same time that you submit other batches with different service levels, even if they’re mailed in the same package, but please make sure that each batch is clearly separated and labeled, and that “Hot List Special” is written on the outside of the mailing package and/or mailing label. Failure to have the outside of the package properly marked may delay the time in which your cards are processed.

Have a great holiday and please be careful this weekend!

Hello COMC Nation!

COMC Hot List: September 18 – October 2

Hello COMC Nation! Where does the time go? It feels like yesterday when it was summer, when the sun was shining and everyone was talking baseball. Now, with fall right around the corner, football is on everyone’s minds, as the days get shorter and the nights get just a little cooler.

While the nation seems to shift its focus to Sundays, the intrepid crew at COMC is still keeping their eyes on all the various sports and figuring out the players and sets that are going to be “Hot List” worthy over the next 2 weeks. After a little negotiation and some back & forth between our team members, we seem to have come to some agreement. So, please check out the Hot List for September 18th to October 2nd:

Byron Buxton

The Hot List Theme

With the NFL Season underway, we thought that if it ain’t broke, we don’t need to fix it. So, we’re going to keep 2013 football RC’s as the Hot List theme again – meaning any NFL player whose Rookie Card is part of a 2013 football set is eligible for the current Hot List.

The COMC Crew is pretty excited, I can tell you – we just completed our draft for our fantasy football league and we’re ready for the games to begin.

COMC Hot List: August 24 – September 4

Hello COMC Nation! It’s Wednesday, the middle of the week, “hump day” (if you will) and you know what that means. It’s the day you’ve been waiting for…no, not Jim McMahon’s birthday (although we were always big fans of the sweatbands). I mean, it’s time for a new COMC Hot List.

This is what we’ve come up with – the COMC Hot List for August 21th to September 4th: 

Sonny Gray

The Hot List Theme

While the road crew has been recovering from their deep dish pizza hangovers, the rest of us have been working on putting together the latest Hot List – looking at who’s the hottest of the hot, and what sets are the sets people will be collecting over the next two weeks.
