COMC on the Road: 2018 Toronto Fall Expo Recap & Final Show of the Year Announcement

On behalf of the COMC team at the Toronto Expo (Boo-Barry, Geoff “Don’t call me Steve” Holland, and “Steven King” Hollander), we would like to thank everyone who stopped by to chat with us. Visiting the GTA twice a year, it’s beginning to feel like we’ve formed and established some really great relationships with our customers in the area. We look forward to continuing to build upon that foundation in 2019!

We would normally announce this as our final show of the year, but the COMC Canada team will be in attendance at the 2018 Legends Weekend from November 16-18 at the Langley Event Centre. There will be more giveaways and prizes to be had! We will also be accepting your consignment submissions all throughout the show.

Hello COMC Nation!

We are very excited to announce our participation at this year’s 39th Annual National Sports Collectors Convention in Cleveland, OH. We can’t wait to see the faces behind your COMC usernames! Whether you’re new to COMC, or you know members of our team on a first name basis, be sure to come and say hello! The convention will be held at the International Exposition (I-X) Center from Wednesday, August 1st – Sunday, August 5th. COMC will have a full team of employees on hand in the corporate area at Booth #355 to accept consignment submissions and talk about COMC and all things card-related. Back by popular demand will be our prize wheel, as well as social media giveaways and much more!

Spin to Win is BACK! 

The Spin is back! Last year in Chicago, we introduced our Prize Wheel and were so blown away by the response it received that we’re bringing it back with us to Cleveland this year! Stop by our booth at any point throughout the show and spin the wheel for your chance to win one of many great prizes! But remember, you must be a COMC member in order to spin! Don’t have a COMC account yet? We’ll have plenty of computers set up at the show where you can sign up for your free COMC account and get your entry to spin the wheel.

Consignment Submission Drop Off

Why pay for shipping? Bring your consignment submissions directly to our booth at The National and we’ll handle the rest of the work! Whether you’ve been prepping your submissions for weeks, or you find some hot deals at The National to bolster your COMC inventory, bring them to our booth and we’ll take care of return postage for any and all consignment drop offs that you submit throughout the show!

To speed up the process, please pack your items securely for shipment and print your submission paperwork in advance. We’ll still have computers and a printer there if you find cards at the show and need to create another submission.

Time with Tim

COMC Founder and CEO Tim Getsch looks forward to the National every year so he can to meet face to face with many of the thousands of COMC customers and hear their feedback, ideas, and the experiences they’ve had with our services.

If you’d like to take some time to sit down with Tim for 30 minutes at the show, email us at timewithtim@comc.com and we’ll get you scheduled. In your email, include your dates and times of availability as well as any topics you wish to discuss. Please send your meeting request no later than Thursday, July 25th.

Social Media Giveaways & More!

If you’re not already following COMC on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram, you’re going to want to hit those like and follow buttons! Each day, we’ll be doing exclusive games and giveaways that will only be shared on our social media channels! Get in on the hunt and you can score store credit prizes and more!

Additionally, we’ll be present at the 3rd Annual Instagram Trade Night hosted by CardCollector2 on Thursday, August 2nd. The event will be held at the Middleburg Heights Community Center from 5:30-8:30pm, featuring free admission to all, free food, giveaways and more. It’s the perfect opportunity to connect with fellow collectors, trade, and get acquainted with the instagram trading community. A COMC representative will be on hand to answer questions, listen to feedback and experiences, and maybe do a little trading themselves!

Due Dates During The National

Each year our booth at The National gets bigger and bigger, and this year we’re bringing more of our team than ever before! With employees from so many different departments representing COMC, we’ll be a little bit short staffed back home. For that reason, all Select, Current-Year Select and Premium due dates that normally would have fallen between August 1st and August 5th will receive an August 6th due date.

The National is our favorite time of the year to connect with members of the COMC Nation and the hobby that we love so very much. We’re looking forward to the many memories that will be created this year in Cleveland. See you there!
