    • I pasted the HTML markup in my reply, and all that shows up is what you see up there—that is, the card and price. As long as I get my history points, I don’t care what it looks like, but I thought you should know 🙂

    • Just comment after a card you think is the best deal. We’ll count the comments and see who got the most feedback.

  7. Always nice to purchase a 1/1 – especially when it is a Superfractor that is graded a BGS 9.5

    • I’ve made some wonderful purchases in the past on comc — but nothing close to a gem mint 1/1 superfractor. This will be tough to beat! Congratulations.

      • I purchased a canary diamond up & coming star pitcher from the university of SAN FRANCISCO, signed with the San Diego Padres Organization. I will have to say that I think that’s a steal as well as a 5/25 2014 bowman inception silver ink on card autographed BY JORGE SOLER FOR $35.&SOME CHANGE ! PLUS A TON MORE !!

THE CAMERA WAS FROM TOPPS PLATNIUM. AND SAID UN COME ON BASE #’D 2/3. having it graded internally. I had also purchased a couple of Jonathan Gray cards, 1 that was #’D 1/10 leaf metal cards bgs 9.5/10, then a bowman black inception Jonathan Gray 7/35 on card auto for ONLY $7.35!! then I picked up a/an Miguel Sano 11/25 on card auto from 2013 Leaf Blue Prismatic Blue FOR ONLY $35!! THOSE ARE THE TOP CARDS I PURCHASED THIS WEEKEND IN WHICH I HAVE A GOOD FEEL ING THAT THEY’RE BRING ME THE BIG GET RETURN

      • The 1/10 9.5/10 Jonathan Gray was $50.50, he’ll I spent LESS for an Roger maris sterling 5 piece relic bat card…. got a bunch of other cards probably spent $500+ this weekend. All good, I pulled some monstrous hits out of some boxes this weekend and I have to get them up on a site, not like many people care but I pulled out of a sterling box a quad relic Gehrig 4 piece jersey relic card. Picked up an white letter psa 4 mantle, just to totally complete my 69 topps, ALL white last name master set, including any and all sp’s. And then I had yanked a 1/1 making of America – Actor Walter Brennan, and he’s still the 1 & only actor to be an recipient of 3 academy awards for the best supporting actor. Deceased, 1974. The cut autograph, is the darkest, clearest autograph, I have ever pulled out of a Leaf product. I’ve still got a/an box of FL Prime & an box of US basketball 2011-2012, to crack I believe that is what the product is. Which has none other than MJ on the top of the box and the box is light blue, I know that I am CLEARLY OFF TOPIC. ALTHOUGH, I HAVE ABOUT 800 HIGH END BIG DOLLAR AMOUNT CARDS, SITTING ON MY TABLE INCLUDING A BUNCH OF VINTAGE INCLUDING A ’58 CLEMENTS THAT BOOKS FOR $300, I PAID $30, THANKS TO MY LHS….THE MANTLE, CAME FROM A FRIEND WHO TOLD ME THAT HE WANTED ME TO COMPLETE MY MASTER SET OF THE 69 TOPPS. I LOW BALLED HIM AT $200 – TELLING HIM THAT I ALREADY HAD THE CARD. I HAVE THE CARD, JUST THE YELLOW LAST NAME. LOL FINALLY GOT THE SET FINISHED. NOW WHAT WOULD YOU GUYS THINK THE SET WOULD BRING AT AUCTION, OR SHOULD I JUST KEEP IT SIMPLE AND EASY FOR MY RETIREMENT. I PURCHASED THE FINEST RAW CARDS ONLINE, AND THEN ALSO IM IN NEED OF 55BOWMAN’S. I WOULD JUST LIKE TO THANK WHO EVER ‘CARDCOINMIKE'” IS, SINCE IM GOING THROUGH THE PROCESS OF CREATING ONE SET. I SAID WHY NOT BUILD 2 SETS AT ONCE. CONTINUE ON THE 2ND SET DOESNT MATTER. MY SET. EVERYTHING HAS TO BE PRISTINE. SORRY FOR THE CAPS IM NOT “YELLING” I TOOK A LONG NAP THIS AFTERNOON, BECAUSE I WAS ABLE TO GET ON HERE AND SHOP FROM MIDNIGHT UNTIL 8AM. MY USUALLY STEAL A DEAL TIME TO GET THE BEST ITEM’S ON HERE. AND THATS MY TIME SCHEDULE, WHICH ISNT FUN I BROKE MY NECK AND BACK. I SUGGEST THAT NONE OF YOU WHO EVEN THINK THAT YOU TRUST THE BEST OF YOUR FRIEND’S; GO THROUGH THE PROCESS OF THIS AND THE PAIN I’VE DEAL WITH ALTHOUGH THE ONLY ONE GOOD THING TO COME OUT OF ALL THIS IS BEING A BEYOND SERIOUS COLLECTION AND MAKING MY PLACE OF RESIDENCE BULLETPROOF. EXCEPT IM NOT. HOPE THAT ALL OF YOU GUYS HAD A GOOD BLACK FRIDAY SHOPPING WEEK END AS I COULDN’T EVEN GET OUT OF THE HOUSE AND GO SHOPPING. SO I USE COMC AND COMC, ONLY. TO BUY AND SELL.

  22. Some great deals this weekend for all it seems. My best had to be a 2003-04 Bowman Gold LeBron James Rookie for $35. I wish I could post the pic, It was listed in Comc as Excellent Mint. The only other one listed on Comc has a condition note of edge wear and is listed at $75. A great PC card for me that I have been eyeing for quite a while.

  24. Ok, it’s time to announce the winner of the Black Friday contest. Unfortunately, we didn’t get as much feedback as we were hoping, and almost no discussion on what was the better deal, so we decided to just do a random drawing of everyone who posted a card and give that lucky winner a box of cards based on the sport of their choice.

    So, we assigned everyone a number, as seen in the list below:

    1 – joelshitshow
    2 – Flutie13
    3 – Greg
    4 – Bobm811
    5 – phosgene
    6 – noah
    7 – ne1113
    8 – Chris
    9 – mike_trout
    10 – Alan C
    11 – Danny Tucker
    12 – Tracy LeVeaux
    13 – samjams3
    14 – Markdaniels
    15 – mickael81
    16 – BigRed
    17 – johnwvideo
    18 – Chuck
    19 – Ben
    20 – abshokie
    21 – dawgfather67
    22 – RGM81
    23 – piperzcrew
    24 – gradishar53
    25 – wphill02

    then we went to and asked it to give us a number between 1-25. They came back with the number “15”, so congrats to mickael81 for being our COMC Blog winner.

    Please contact me (either here or via email – with your COMC username and favorite sport, and we’ll get to work on acquiring a box of cards from that sport, that we’ll break and deposit into your port.

    Everyone else can contact me with your username and I’ll drop 100 history points into your account.

    Thanks to all for being a part of this!

  25. I’m sorry to say this, but this was very poorly run. I am disappointed that the original rules were changed AFTER the deadline. The rule that said there would be voting to decide a winner should not have been ignored when there were already done people who had gotten votes. I don’t intend to sound ungrateful, but the only people who should have been considered should be samjam3, alan c, and I. However, I would like to also say thanks for at least having a oportunity to win free cards after already getting awesome deals.
