The Hunt is OVER! Item #50,000,000 Has Been Found!

The Hunt is OVER! COMC Acquires Card #50,000,000 From ePack/COMC Member!

#50000000 – 2017-18 Upper Deck – [Base] – Silver Foil #376 Chris Kreider

Earlier this year we put out a call to action asking for YOUR help in helping us secure a very important milestone card in COMC history. That item was the 50-millionth item processed by COMC in our 10+ year history and just so happened to be an ePack card from the 2017-18 Upper Deck Series 2 Hockey Set.

It took almost four months to the day, but one lucky COMC member has answered the call and claimed the $1,000 reward that we placed upon this item. Alex B. (COMC username loki__101) from Edmonton, Alberta, Canada was the lucky individual who randomly received the assigned item number of  50,000,000 when he combined 10 digital Chris Kreider base cards from the 2017-18 Series 2 Hockey Set into one physical silver foil card on ePack and transferred it to their COMC account. Alex promptly contacted our Customer Service Team to claim the reward and was gracious enough to answer a few questions for our blog!

How long have been collecting, and what do you collect?

“I collect hockey cards. I used to collect a lot as a kid and didn’t pick it back up until a few years ago (2015-16 season).”

Who are some of your favorite players?

“I am die hard Oilers fan, so of the current team McDavid and Draisaitl are my favorites. I’m also a sucker for goalies so Cujo and Bill Ranford are two of my all-time favorites.”

Do you have a favorite card in your collection?

“Growing up I was proud of my Forsberg rookie card, before he was traded in the Lindros deal. He still has a Flyers jersey on.”

Were you actively hunting for item #50,000,000, or did you come across it without much effort?

“I had bought some boxes on ePack (9-10 I think) and was really close to getting a silver foil for all of the base set. It took my a while to get the last Krieder due to its high demand. I admit I was crossing my fingers when I transferred it over to COMC and did a double take when I saw the number.”

What do you like about Upper Deck ePack?

“Its an easy was to collect, especially if you like the idea of collecting but don’t want / need to have the physical card right there. The ability to have a community for trading is also convenient.”

What do you primarily use COMC for?

“I do use it mainly for selling cards (not many). Also browsing to see what is available.”

Do you have any advice for those who use ePack or COMC?

“Find what you like and stick to it – be it a player, team etc. You’ll have more fun that way.”

Hello COMC Nation & ePack Members!

We are calling upon YOU to help us secure a very coveted milestone card that represents a small piece of COMC history. In return, we are offering a reward of $1000.00 COMC Store Credit to the lucky individual who transfers this item into their COMC account from their Upper Deck ePack account.

We recently added item number 50,000,000 to our catalog, a monumental achievement for our team. The 50 millionth item cataloged just happens to be a card from the recently released 2017-18 Upper Deck Series 2 Hockey ePack set.

The 50 millionth card added to our catalog is this 2017-18 Upper Deck – Silver Foil #376 Chris Kreider card

2017-18 Upper Deck  – Silver Foil #376 Chris Kreider

Silver foil cards can be acquired on the ePack website through combining 10 copies of the digital base card together. When an ePack member does this, the 10 digital base cards are removed from their account and they are given one physical silver foil parallel of the combined cards.  Once a silver foil card has been acquired on the ePack website, it can be transferred to its owner’s COMC account where a COMC item number will be assigned to the item.

How YOU can help us acquire item #50,000,000:

  1. Acquire 10 copies of card #376 Chris Kreider from the 2017-18 Upper Deck Series 2 Hockey set on the ePack website via opening packs of UD Series 2 Hockey or trading with other ePack users for the card.
  2. Combine those 10 copies of #376 Chris Kreider on ePack to receive one silver foil parallel version.
  3. Transfer the silver foil #376 Chris Kreider to your COMC account. Click here for ePack’s tutorial on how to transfer items from your ePack account to your COMC account.
  4. Locate the transferred item within your COMC inventory manager and check the item number.
  5. If your Silver Foil #376 Chris Kreider is item number 50,000,000 you are our Grand Prize Winner! Contact us via email, Facebook, Twitter or a blog comment and let us know that you have item #50,000,000 in your possession!

Stay tuned to this blog post as we will make an update announcement if and/or when the hunt for item #50,000,000 has ended. Milestone items such as this card are important keepsakes for COMC to help remind us how far we’ve come over since our inception. Thank you and good luck!

Happy Holidays! – Reduced Customer Service on December 25th and January 1st.

Happy Holidays COMC Nation!

We here at COMC just want to take a moment to wish you and your loved ones a very joyous Holiday Season and a very Happy New Year!

In observance of the Holiday Season, we will have limited customer service support. On December 25th and January 1st, phone support will not be available, but we can still help via email. If you have any questions or need assistance, simply send an email to staff@comc.com and one of our friendly customer service agents will be glad to help!

2017 was a great year for trading cards and collectibles as the bats of baseball rookies such as Aaron Judge and Cody Bellinger ignited interest in long time collectors as well as new and returning collectors alike. As the summer wound down, we saw the meteoric rise of basketball superstars like Giannis Antetokounmpo and Ben Simmons generate excitement in the new basketball products like Optic, Prizm and Select. ePack items continued to find an increased presence on the COMC marketplace as Fleer Ultra Spider-Man and Team Canada Juniors gained popularity among collectors.

With 2018 right around the corner, we’re more excited and passionate than ever about the future of the hobby that we all love so much. Until next time, Happy New Year!
