COMC at the National

Are You Ready for the National?

COMC’s event team can’t wait to see you this week at the 41st National Sports Collector’s Convention! We shared a blog post earlier this month about what to expect at COMC’s Booth #624, which you can read at this link. In this follow-up blog, our events team wanted to share some exciting updates to our NSCC festivities.

Our festivities at the National will include free box breaks available exclusively to registered users! Entering to win cards from these breaks is simple: just come by the COMC Booth each day and register by having our team members scan the QR Code now available in your account under “My QR Code”. Here are just a few of the boxes you can look forward to:

  • 2020-21 Panini Prizm Basketball Hobby Box: Including 2 Autos and a Plethora of Prizm Parallels

The cards pulled from these breaks will all be processed for free through our Standard consignment service, and winners will be chosen from a random draw after the conclusion of the NSCC. Winners will receive an email notification once the cards are added to their COMC accounts. For more info about the breaks, stop by Booth #624 at the show to speak with COMC’s team!

Our team looks forward to accepting your drop-off consignment submissions directly at our booth throughout the show. Our team will be accepting submissions directly at our Booth #624 until 3pm Central Time on Sunday. To speed up the drop-off process, please pack your items securely and print your submission paperwork in advance if possible.

Save on shipping costs by making a drop-off submission at COMC’s NSCC Booth #624!

We have computer stations with printers set up for consignors to use at the show. These stations can get busy during peak show hours, so we encourage you to print your submission slips in advance so your drop-off process is quick and easy, and you can spend more time enjoying the National! Minimum submission quantities and add-on fees still apply for drop-off submissions. Please review our COMC Selling Rates page for more information.
