Earlier this summer, we announced that COMC would process the 100 millionth consigned item in company history. To celebrate this achievement, our founder & CEO Tim Getsch offered to buy the card for market value plus $1,000. We’re honored to share that we reached this incredible milestone, and the COMC user who consigned Item #100,000,000 accepted Tim’s offer to buy the card!
Congrats to COMC User lukew298!
COMC Item #100,000,000 is a 2017 Topps Triple Threads Unity Jumbo Relic Auto numbered 32/75 of slugger Joey Gallo. The card was consigned through our Select processing service by COMC user lukew298. Officially added to the COMC marketplace on July 31st, 2021, the timing proved serendipitous as Joey Gallo had just been dealt to the New York Yankees!
COMC founder & CEO Tim Getsch bought the card from lukew298 for market value of $50 plus $1,000, in the form of COMC Store Credit. This card now holds a special place in Tim’s personal collection as an important piece of COMC history.
Congrats again to COMC user lukew298 on consigning the 100 millionth item! You can check out more of lukew298’s items for sale on COMC here.
