COMC on the Road – Edmonton Recap & Upcoming Shows!

Edmonton1

COMC has been on the road this Spring actively involved in the card show circuit all throughout the U.S. and Canada! We’ve been enjoying spending time face-to-face with our buyers and sellers, accepting consignments and answering any questions that you may have. We’re also happy to report that hundreds of new accounts have been created on COMC by first-time buyers and sellers who are interested and eager to get their COMC experience started!

Our Canadian Processing Facility Manager, Barry, relayed the following after the April 22nd & 23rd Edmonton Summit Show:

“On behalf of the COMC Canada team, I would like to take a moment to thank everyone who stopped by our booth. The Edmonton Show exceeded our wildest expectations, and it was just a great group of collectors who attended the show. We helped introduce new customers to the many services offered by COMC. Thank you to everyone who attended the Summit show and made our trip memorable!”

thumbnail_20170330_201318In addition, the COMC Prize Wheel made its anticipated debut at the Edmonton show and was a huge hit, particularly with young collectors. The Grand Prize offered via the Prize Wheel was an entry into a drawing to win a 2015-16 Upper Deck Artifacts #205 Connor McDavid. At the end of the show, it was COMC member Addy272001 who took home the coveted McDavid!

The Prize Wheel will then tour East to Ontario for the Sport Card & Memorabilia Expo on May 5, 6, & 7, where, just by having a COMC account, show attendants can spin to win an entry into our grand prize drawing for a 2016-17 Upper Deck #201 Auston Matthews rookie card, as well as other store credit prizes! Given that at times there were queues to register an account at our booth, we recommend creating an account beforehand to avoid delays if you do not have a COMC account already.

COMC will be located in the corporate area of the matthewsToronto show this year and, as always, we will be accepting submissions! Please use the submission wizard option for Expo drop-offs and package your items well.

Lastly, in addition to the Toronto show in May, representatives from COMC will be on hand to accept submissions at the Twin Oaks show at Mall 205 on April 29th in Portland, OR. We hope to see as many members of the COMC Nation as possible out on the road!

BGS Grading Changes and Expedited Services have arrived on COMC

Hello COMC Nation!

With a new year comes new and exciting changes to our service! The first change that we’re proud to announce is that we now offer three tiers of grading options through Beckett Grading Services.

mcdavidRecently, if you’ve submitted an item for BGS grading through COMC, you may have noticed that the actual grading time was often longer than the estimated grading time window. These changes that we’re rolling out will offer significantly improved accuracy of our estimated grading times.

In addition, we’ve introduced two new expedited services that guarantee to get those hot rookies, recently released cards, and prized possessions back into your COMC inventory as soon as possible!

These expedited services and changes to our eight-week service are now in effect.

 

Expedited BGS Turnaround Times Now Available Through COMC!

We’ve heard your voices loud and clear! Thanks to popular demand, we now offer two expedited grading services through BGS. Our fastest turnaround time is a four-week service at the rate of $25.00 per card. We also offer a six-week service for $18.00 per card. The standard addition of $2.00 for autographs and $8.00 for oversized cards apply to both of these new grading service tiers as well.

Changes to Our Current Eight-Week Service

If you’ve ever submitted a card for grading through COMC, then you’re familiar with our bregman
current $12.00 per card eight-week service. Going forward, we’ll be offering our same eight-week service with significantly improved accuracy of our estimated grading time window. As a result of a recent increase to our group rate through BGS, we will now offer this service for $14.00 per card (add $2.00 for autographs and $8.00 for oversized).

Please note that all items submitted for grading through COMC are subject to the 1% declared value fee for insurance purposes regardless of the service level chosen.

These are just a few of the many changes that we will be rolling out to the COMC service in 2017.  We look forward to sharing more announcements with you in the future!

Hello, COMC Nation!

We hope that you had a fantastic Holiday Season and a Happy New Year! We already have our bags packed and are ready for the first stop on our 2017 schedule. Up first will be the 2017 Upper Deck Certified Diamond Dealer Conference in Phoenix, Arizona on January 11th and 12th. If you own a hobby shop and are an Upper Deck Certified Diamond Dealer then be sure to join us at the Sheraton Grand Phoenix Hotel!

COMC will be in attendance with our own booth set up for both days of the conference. We will be available both days to meet with hobby shop owners to discuss how COMC can help their shops become more successful. We’ll have a booth set up to be able to help dealers set up and manage their accounts, offer demonstrations of our service, and answer any and all questions they may have about our service.

If you will be in attendance at the event and would like to drop off consignment submissions, we will be accepting submissions at our booth on both days as well. We look forward to seeing you there!
