Hello COMC Nation!
The National Sports Collectors Convention is right around the corner, so we know you all have been waiting with anticipation. As is our time honored tradition, the National brings with it a COMC Promotion, generally one with a repeating number theme. This year is no exception.
There is no need to wait any longer. Now that the details have all been hammered out, we’re ready to share them with you! We wanted to do something special for all of the people who use our site – our buyers and sellers. We’ve found that one great way to make buyers happy is to provide the best selection of items. And one great way to make sellers happy is to provide them with happy buyers.
So this year we’re trying something new. At the National we are going to be handing out coupons with scratch tickets with prizes ranging from $3 off shipping, to $5 or $10 of COMC store credit.
Some coupons will even have a secret multiplier to add even more credit to the account when redeemed. For those who can’t make it to the National, don’t worry because we will be adding these coupons to the first 10,000 packages we ship out starting August 1st.
And to make sure that buyers have the best selection of cards to choose from, we’re offering a National Processing Special. Instead of dropping out the floor of our Basic processing service, we’re offering a service to help get better cards up sooner.
3 Week, 300 ct box, 30¢ per card.
If you don’t have a 300 count box, measure out a single row of cards that’s 5 inches long.
The special will start on July 17th.
Orders mailed in must be postmarked by August 31st.
Use the Submission Wizard to notify us of the submission.
Limit ONE 300 count box per person.
Single row, no jammed in minis, nothing in the sides or laid on top.
These cards will be processed with a 3 week due date.
Items sent in using the National Special will not be subject to the $0.50 Item Upgrade fees for pricing a card over $50.
There will be a $3 minimum charge for the National Special. This will be charged if you send ten or fewer cards.
Packages that are sent in for the National Special, but do not meet these guidelines, will be processed at our Basic service level.
For those of you who will be in Chicago for the National, you can drop your cards off at the COMC Booth to avoid any of those extra shipping costs. We’ll be booth 648. Our friends in Canada can also take advantage of this special by sending their submissions to our office in Burnaby.
We have updated the following information in the post above.
You can start submitting items for the National Special – the submission wizard has been updated.
There is a minimum batch size of 10 cards for the National Special. Batches of 10 or fewer cards will be charged $3.
We have clarified that items submitted with the National Special will not have the $0.50 item upgrade if priced above $50.
