Hello COMC Nation,

We’re pleased to announce the first few trading card and collectible shows of 2017 that we’ll be attending! It is our intention in 2017 to attend as many shows as possible all across the United States and Canada. We always look forward to having the opportunity to meet our buyers and sellers face-to-face to get to know you better and hear your feedback. We will have representatives on hand to answer any and all questions that you might have about our service.

We’ll also be sharing employment opportunities for those interested in the possibility of relocation to join the COMC team!  If you’re as passionate about collectibles as we are and can tell the difference between an atomic refractor and an xfractor, then we want to hear from you!

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!
