Coronavirus Emergency Response

LAST UPDATED July 1, 2020

This page is monitored and updated to provide real-time information regarding the status of our services affected by our precautions taken in accordance with the WHO, CDC, and WA State guidance, as well as potential staffing limitations due to the global pandemic, COVID-19.

On May 29, 2020 Governor Jay Inslee announced a “Safe Start” plan in Washington State to follow a 4-phase reopening plan. We are currently in Phase 1 and are ramping up COMC operations while maintaining compliance with the state mandate. We will resume full processing and shipping as soon as permitted by the 4-phase reopening plan.

Expect delays and refer to this page for status updates and changes. All digital purchases and sales through the COMC Marketplace and in your COMC account will continue as normal.

We will keep you updated on our Processing and Shipping backlog progress by letting you know the oldest due date we are working on in a given week. All non-guaranteed services will be worked on from oldest to newest.


We are currently working on the following due dates:

  • Economy Shipping: 05/25 – 6/12
  • Basic (retired): 04/28
  • Current Year 3 Week: 06/01

Canada Economy: Currently working on orders placed thru 6/28 These items will ship by July 30th.

International Economy (non-Canadian orders): Currently working on orders due 3/27 – 4/20 Note some countries do not currently have mail service so some packages may need to be held longer. Please review the list of countries not currently accepting international mail on the USPS International Service Alerts page.

Please note we are working as quickly as possible in both Processing and Shipping to complete all past due items. Our Customer Service Team is unable to process any expedite requests for items with due dates on or after the dates listed above.


The following service levels are currently affected:

Processing Services

To better support the processing of previously submitted items and reduce any additional delays, we have suspended our 12 Week Service effective 5/12. We feel the gravity of suspending this service and look forward to bringing back a more affordable processing option for you, once we’ve made significant progress on our processing backlog.

Lead times will begin when packages are opened – expect delays of up to 2 weeks, including for Mailbox submissions. We are prioritizing opening packages containing Elite, Auction, and 1 Week submissions.

IMPORTANT: in order for us to prioritize these time-sensitive submissions, you will need to upload your shipment tracking number for your submission here: https://www.comc.com/Manage/Submissions.

Any submissions with a due date of March 14th or later will not receive a discount for missed due dates except the following:

  • 3 Week
  • Elite Services
  • Vintage and Obscure Services
  • Comic Book Services

We are not offering discounts for delayed processing of 12 Week, Current-Year 3 Week, or grandfathered Basic submissions.

Shipping Services

Effective April 1, 2020 the Shipping Bonus Credit has been temporarily suspended.

The wonderful differentiator with COMC is you can buy now and ship later.  We want to encourage our customers to take advantage of that and please ship later.  Customers should expect slower shipment times on all services and we are not guaranteeing ship dates.

Customer Service

We are suspending support for in-person customer drop-offs/pick-ups.

We are suspending phone support. Please contact us via email at staff@comc.com. Please expect delays in response time.

To ensure we are able to resolve your issues as quickly as possible, please include all of the following information when available:

  • Brief Description in Subject Line (Combine Shipment, Missing Cards, Return Item, etc.)
  • Customer Name
  • User Name
  • Batch Number
  • Order Number/s
  • Item Number/s
  • Detailed description of your request

The more detail you provide regarding how we can provide support without needing to request additional information, the quicker we will be able to resolve your issue.


We value your business and we are diligently working to complete orders as quickly as possible.

If you have changes or need assistance, please contact customer service at staff@comc.com.


Please stay safe and healthy during this critical time. Our thoughts are with the people and families who are affected by this health crisis.

Sport Card Expo Virtual Edition: COMC in Attendance!

COMC will be in attendance at the Sportcard Expo – Virtual Edition on June 19 & 20th. Thanks to the sponsors of the show, attendance is free! We will be answering questions you may have on how COMC can be part of your hobby experience. Due to internal system limitations, we will not be able to respond to specific account user questions.

Take Advantage of our Mailbox Service

Use our mailbox service to save time on shipping.  Expo sellers can send all of the cards sold to the COMC as one shipment.  Cards can be deposited into buyers’ accounts through the mailbox service.  Just have your buyers create a COMC account and label their purchases with that name.  This will allow buyers to piggyback their Expo purchases with COMC purchases for lower cost per item shipping with buyer protection. Buyers can request shipments to their COMC Mailbox accounts for the above reasons.  Read more about our mailbox service at https://www.comc.com/mailbox.

*Mailbox submissions sent to our US office will experience processing delays. Current Mailbox processing times begin when packages are opened.

Virtual Dice Game to Win Real Prices

A COMC member will roll die on account holder’s behalf for a chance to win prizes.  Winners will be drawn the week of June 21st and will be announced on our Facebook page.  To claim your prize, email csc@comc.com by August 20th, 2020 and we’ll add the card into your account along with store credit to cover shipping.  Limit one roll per account.

Free Daily Box Breaks

We will be offering random team breaks to any COMC account holders who would like to participate (limit one slot per household).  Winners will receive only the “hits” (no base / commons) and will have to be at the booth the “pick up” their prize.  More details will be announced at the show.

Disclaimer & Conclusion

As this is the first show of its kind, we may encounter some technical difficulties, so we add the precautionary disclaimer that the show events are subject to change.   

We hope you can attend its event and visit the vendors that would normally set up at the Toronto Expo.

Lastly, we want to wish all Dads a HAPPY FATHER’S DAY!

eBay Homepage Auctions Event! Inserts & Parallels

COMC Auctions headlining the eBay Homepage June 15th – June 21st!

When to submit your cards:

Auctions STARTING during promotion must be received by COMC between 6/1 – 6/5

Net Marvels

Marvels Inserts are taking off! Previously, this Marvel LeBron James card was valued and selling for less than $5.00. Prices over the past few months have soared to over $250.00!
The Marvel set as a whole is highly collectible, so what better time to send them to COMC Auction? Get your submissions in now to ensure they arrive in time for the event!

Prizm Baseball

Prizm baseball is on the rise. Take a look at the 2012 Prizm Mike Trout Rookie #50 for example. This was selling for less than $10 over 2 months ago.
The current market value has surpassed the $100 mark and is consistently hitting close to $120. With a 1000% increase in price, now is a great time to send in your Prizm Inserts & Parallels!

2016 Optic Holos

Optic Holos have been on fire in the marketplace. Here we see the 2016 Optic Holo Tom Brady. Prior to the surge, this card was selling for roughly $5-10. Now, prices are anywhere from $140-160!
The Optic Holo price jumps are not limited to just football; basketball is also seeing huge increases. Get all your Optic Holos in now!

The Best 2020 Topps Series 1 Rookies to Watch!

Looking to find those early rookie cards of this years potential young stars? 2020 Topps Series 1 is newly available on the COMC Marketplace! In this article we will look at some of the big name rookies and a few we think have a chance to make a big splash this season.

Yordan Alvarez Card  #276

The obvious player to look for in this year’s Topps Series 1 is Yordan Alvarez. Coming off a 2019 campaign where he was deemed the American League Rookie of the Year. In only 87 games for the Houston Astros, he cranked 27 home runs and batted in 78 runs. With an OPS over 1.000, its safe to say Alvarez is one to watch. The one downside of his game is the number of strikeouts, he will have to try to limit those this upcoming 2020 season.

Aristides Aquino – Card #20

Although a little older than the average rookie, Aristides Aquino has a lot of tools to like. He stands at 6 feet 4 inches tall and weighs 220 pounds. That’s a lot of potential power and he showed that when he knocked in 19 homeruns in only 56 games played for the Cincinatti Reds. Although he did not hit for a great average, .259, it was a serviceable number and now having a full off season, he should be able to bump it up.

Bo Bichette – Card #78

Bo Bichette did not have your typical rookie issues when it came to getting on base, as he averaged .311 at the plate. At 21 years of age, Bichette has already shown he could be a special shortstop. In the 46 games he appeared in, Bo had 61 hits, stole 4 bases and accounted for 32 runs for the Toronto Blue Jays.

Gavin Lux – Card #292

Gavin does not have as large of a sample size as the rest of the guys mentioned on this list, but he has a lot of tools. He can play both shortstop and second base which makes he a nice versatile piece that the Los Angeles Dodgers can use. Lux is one of the younger guys to have seen some big-league time as he is just 21 years old. With the Dodgers a clear front runner to represent the NL in the World Series, there is a lot to like with this kid.

Nico Hoerner – Card #70

With the loss of Russell Addison, Nico Hoerner has a lot of opportunity to showcase his talent this upcoming season. Don’t be surprised if we see him in the starting lineup after the end of this spring training. A rookie of Nico’s caliber could be just the rejuvenation the cubs need to turn it around from their 3rd place finish in the NL Central in 2019.

Trent Grisham – Card #9

Trent Grisham, formerly known at Trent Clark, was the 15th overall pick in the 2015 draft. Although he has not been explosive like one would assume a first-round pick would be, he has been a solid player so far in his 51 major league games. Also noteworthy is the fact he just turned 23 a few months ago, and he should slot in nicely on an already stacked Milwaukee Brewers team.

Kyle Lewis – Card #64

Kyle Lewis was also put on this list for his small sample size. He was the 11th overall pick in the 2016 draft, and he showed why at the end of last season. In only 18 games with the Seattle Mariners, Lewis belted 6 homeruns, 13 RBIs and accounted for another 10 runs himself. One thing to keep an eye on with Lewis is the amount of strikeouts, but the Mariners should do a good job protecting him in the lineup as the youth movement in Seattle is all about patience.

That’s going to do it for our list, but now we want to hear from you! Let us know in the comments below which rookies you’ll be stashing from 2020 Topps Series 1? Who do you think will stand out as the top rookie in the set? We’d love to hear your thoughts, and we’ll see you again for Series 2 later this year!

Noted! New Item Condition Search Filters Added to Condition Noted items.

As part of our ongoing effort to improve your trading card collecting experience with COMC, we recently rolled out a pretty note-worthy change. All items with condition notes have been separated from items without condition notes, and placed within their own ‘noted’ conditional bucket. You might think a change like this is small, but it actually benefits both buyers and sellers in a big way!

By separating cards with and without condition notes, buyers will have an easier time distinguishing cards considered to be in near-mint or better condition from cards that have flaws or undesirable traits. All cards in the ‘Noted’ bucket display [noted] within search results to better help you differentiate these items.

This change will also improve the experience for sellers working in their inventory manager to either set asking prices for new items, or update prices of items already for sale. With the separation of condition noted items into their own bucket, sellers will have access to better data points on how to price these items, and how other sellers are pricing similar items.

Condition noted items will also have their own SRP (Suggested Retail Pricing), SLP (Suggested List Pricing), and SWP (Suggested Wholesale Pricing) different from similar items without condition notes.

Noted cards can be searched for specifically by using the Item Condition search filters on the left side of your COMC search results. It can be found within the Ungraded > COMC filter.

The COMC Bulk Price Editor is Back in Action!

Great news! The COMC Bulk Price Editor is now functional and ready to help you efficiently adjust the asking prices of your COMC Inventory. We want to thank all of our sellers for your patience during the downtime.

COMC 2020 Processing Services Update

To align our service with the evolving needs of the hobby, COMC will be updating the Processing Services options we offer effective March 1, 2020.

COMC is committed to providing trading card collectors with a best-in-class consignment service. With a focus on improving overall customer experience, we will be retiring all our active consignment levels and introducing new Processing Service options.

What’s Changing

On March 1st, 2020 new Processing Services will become available. You will see the following options in the Submission Wizard:

  • Standard Trading Cards
  • Elite Trading Cards
  • Vintage & Obscure Trading Cards
  • Comic Books

On March 4th, 2020 at 11:59pm old Processing Services will be retired. If you choose to use the previous service options, items must be postmarked by Saturday, March 7th, 2020. Any items postmarked after that date will be processed as follows:

  • Submitted as Basic > 12 Week
  • Submitted as Select > 3 Week
  • Submitted as Premium > 1 Week
  • Submitted as Current-Year Basic > Current-Year 3 Week
  • Submitted as Current-Year Select > Current-Year 3 Week
  • Submitted as Comic Book Premium > Comic Book Elite 1 Week

Updated Processing Services

Elite Services

COMC Elite is required for all items priced over $100. These high-end items are all handled end-to-end with extreme care and will display a high-quality image. This will ensure you maximize your sales opportunity and receive a premier experience for your high-end trading cards. For a detailed explanation of items that qualify for Elite, please refer to the Elite Page.

COMC eBay Auctions is the easiest way to sell your items valued at $25 or more quickly. Your items are listed the week after they enter your account and there are no up-front fees. We make the auction process easy and the commission fee will be assessed at the conclusion of the auction. Please review our COMC Auctions page for a full explanation of our auction service including a breakdown of the commission fee structure.

Standard Processing Services

1 Week & 3 Week are the best services for selling your hottest cards quickly, as well as getting your cards listed in time for the latest sports season.  Autographs, RC, and memorabilia cards are great candidates for these service levels.

12 Week is the best service for those items you want processed at the greatest value, and you are not in a hurry to have them up for sale.

Current-Year is a fast and economical option for getting brand new product in the hands of set-builders, player collectors, and other collectors while it is hot. All submissions must be 2019-20 dual-year, 2019 single-year, or newer products.

Vintage and Obscure Service

Vintage and Obscure items require more time and research to identify. These items should be separated from other items when submitted. For best value, send your Vintage and Obscure items through this service level. For faster service, sent them through 1 Week or 3 Week service and pay the upcharge. For additional information and a detailed explanation of items that qualify for Vintage & Obscure, please refer to the Vintage and Obscure Page.

Comic Book Services

Comic Books priced under $100 will be processed using the 3 Week Service and items priced over $100 will be processed using Elite.

Trimmed or Altered Cards

Trimmed and altered cards cannot be sold on COMC. Items submitted to COMC that are found to be trimmed or altered will be processed under the Elite Service so that we can document the evidence of alteration. These items will be uploaded into their owner’s accounts with the additional processing fees. Owners of these items will not be able to price these items to sell and will need to have these items returned to them at their expense.

Trimmed or altered items that have already been processed and are later found to be trimmed or altered will be returned to the original consignor.  The original consignor will be responsible for covering any grading or condition review fees as well as the sale price paid by the last buyer and an additional $10 investigation fee.


Please review our 2020 Processing Changes FAQ for additional information regarding these changes.

If you still have questions, please contact our customer service team at staff@comc.com and we would be happy to answer any additional questions you have.


We appreciate the consignment partnership that we’ve had the pleasure of developing with you over the years and anticipate these new changes will bring many improvements to our service, our marketplace, and the hobby. Together we will continue to make COMC the Safe and Easy Way to Buy and Sell.
