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!

COMC and Upper Deck e-Pack Launch

UD                comc

COMC is very pleased to announce that we have partnered with Upper Deck on the release of their e-Pack version of the 2015-16 Upper Deck Series 1 Hockey card set. We are working as the fulfillment center for this product, which allows us to leverage our extensive knowledge and systems to provide the best experience for thousands of new customers. We have already processed thousands of cards in preparation for this launch, and we can’t wait to start shipping them out to you.

The e-Pack Rundown

The e-Pack release of 2015-16 Upper Deck Series 1 Hockey Cards is very similar to the physical product, but with some new twists:

  • Packs, boxes, and cases can be purchased online through the e-Pack site
  • At least one physical card per pack, with new exclusive e-Pack inserts:
    • Code to Greatness (1:10 e-Packs) and
    • Instant Impressions (1:10 e-Packs)
  • Physical copies of inserts and parallels transfer instantly to your COMC account, or shipped out worldwide
  • Digital-only versions of base cards can be combined for exclusive e-Pack exclusive Silver Foil Border cards

Untitled

It can be a hassle to deal with the large quantities of base cards that can accumulate when ripping any amount of product. To cut back on this frustration, when you collect 10 copies of a digital-only base card, you may combine them through the e-Pack site for a Silver Foil Border. Similarly, some combinations of physical cards will allow for other exclusive cards like Young Guns rookie cards – including Connor McDavid!

What COMC Users Need to Know

Starting today with the release of the e-Pack site, you can transfer from your Upper Deck e-Packs directly to your COMC account. The transfer is absolutely free. Once the card is in your COMC account, it is treated the same as any item that has been purchased into your COMC account, you can list it for sale, ship it, or even send it out for grading.

Fans can try e-Pack for free just by registering at www.UpperDeckEpack.com. Once registered, users can claim a free pack every day – just for logging on.

More information, including detailed e-pack functionality, exclusive e-Pack content and  a list of e-Pack achievements users can obtain can be found at www.UpperDeckEpack.com.

Edit: 2/4 – Cards transferred to your COMC account act as cards purchased, not as cards consigned.

Join us at the Sportcard and Memorabilia Expo in Mississauga

Hello COMC Nation,

The Sportcard & Memorabilia Expo in Mississauga is just around the corner, and we are excited to have a place at the largest hockey card trade show in the world.  COMC will once again be there to accept submissions to save consignors on shipping, offering free giveaways (while supplies last), and answering any questions you may have.  The show, which is running from November 6th through the 8th, is special on a number of different fronts.

What makes this Fall Expo special?

Firstly, this show has been going for 25 years and the Fall Expo marks the 50th show;

Secondly, the 2015 Hockey Hall of Fame induction class of Nicklas Lidstrom, Chris Pronger, & Phil Housley will be present as autograph guests;

Thirdly, the show is the launchpad for the release of 2015-16 Upper Deck Series 1 Hockey and the first live card of Connor McDavid in an Edmonton Oilers uniform. The hype surrounding Connor McDavid has not been seen since 2005-06 with Sidney Crosby, and COMC would like to help connect people who may be fortunate enough to have his card with those who are seeking to own his card.

To this end, we are offering free premium processing for all Connor McDavid cards featured in an Edmonton Oilers uniform from November 5th (projected release date of 2015-16 Upper Deck Series 1 Hockey) through December 31, 2015 (postmarked). This includes redemption cards in 2015-16 MVP Hockey, 2015-16 Artifacts Hockey, and 2015-16 Upper Deck Tim Hortons which trade one for one for a Connor McDavid card, but excludes the 2015-16 MVP Pacific Division.

To make sure your order is processed free of charge, make sure to use the submission wizard from your COMC account to choose this option. As with all premium processing, there is no upgrade fee.  Mailbox submissions or Connor McDavid cards not in an Oilers uniform do not qualify.
