COMC Hot List: July 24th – August 7th

Hi COMC Nation – how’s it going? Now, is it just us or does the All-Star break seem like the longest stretch of time, ever? Thankfully, baseball came back and the 2nd half of the season looks to be as much fun as the 1st half.  Especially for the COMC crew, as our local team is giving us hope for a .500 season…it’s not much, but we have to start somewhere, right?

Anyways, while all that’s going on, we’ve been busy huddling around our television screens and laptops and smartphones and whatever else we can use to get an idea of who and what is currently the hottest of the hot. We’ve compiled our findings, and we’re ready to present the newest COMC Hot List, for July 24 to August 7!

The Hot List Theme

To celebrate the 34th Annual National Sports Collectors Convention, we’re decided that the Hot Theme should reflect the host city – so, any card that features a player from a Chicago-based team is eligible for the Hot List.

So what does being on the Hot List mean?

COMC wants to encourage our users to get these hot cards into your accounts to offer for sale as quickly as possible, so starting today, any cards submitted for the Hot List will qualify for our “Hot List Special” processing. With this service, you will receive One Day processing at the special Hot List price: $0.50 per raw card and $1.00 per graded, encased, or jumbo card.

How to Submit Hot List Items for Consignment:

Chris Davis

  • Clearly write “Hot List Special” on the outer mailing package and/or the address label.
  • $5 minimum batch fee (We recommend submitting 10+ items.)
  • 200 item maximum per week
  • Must be postmarked by August 7th, 2013
  • Must be mailed to our US address (Our Canadian warehouse currently only supports One Month service.)
  • Any submissions received on a Friday or Saturday may not be processed until the following Monday.
  • Submissions with non-Hot List items mixed in will be downgraded to One Week service.
  • Redemption cards may qualify for Hot List pricing, but will take up to a week to process.

You’re welcome to submit Hot List batches at the same time that you submit other batches with different service levels, even if they’re mailed in the same package, but please make sure that each batch is clearly separated and labeled, and that “Hot List Special” is written on the outside of the mailing package and/or mailing label.

Thanks for your input for this new Hot List! Be sure to watch our FacebookTwitter, and Google+ pages for the next Hot List Call Out in a week!

COMC Hot List: July 10th – July 24th

Greetings and salutations COMC Nation! Once again, the time is upon us to share to the world the glory that is the newest and freshest COMC Hot List!

When we haven’t been outside wondering what that great glowing orb in the sky is, as well as trying to figure out what it wants from us, we’ve been diligently working on trying to figure out what players and sets would be the hottest of the hot, in order to put together this list.

Thankfully, the MLB All-Star game is coming up, and the NHL & NBA entered their Free Agency periods, so it helped us out a little. So, after some discussion and negotiations, as well as a few cases of sunburn, here’s what we have for the COMC Hot List, for July 10th to July 24th:

The Hot List Theme

Our theme is going to help you take advantage of one of our newest services, announced last week. In case you missed it, we’re now accepting Redemption cards, and we’re happy to make them the Hot List Theme. Check out the COMC Blog about Redemptions, and save yourself a whole lot of time, trouble, and effort.

 So what does being on the Hot List mean?

COMC wants to encourage our users to get these hot cards into your accounts to offer for sale as quickly as possible, so starting today, any cards submitted for the Hot List will qualify for our “Hot List Special” processing. With this service, you will receive One Day processing at the special Hot List price: $0.50 per raw card and $1.00 per graded, encased, or jumbo card.

COMC Hot List: June 26th – July 10th

Hello to the COMC Nation! It’s amazing how quickly 2 weeks can go by, as we’re at that point in the calendar where we’re ready to announce a new COMC Hot List!

Our crack team of Identification Processors and Card Experts have spent the last 14 days scanning the internets and watching way too much sports-related television…well, they would be doing that, anyways – but, ultimately, it’s part of their effort to determine what players and sets would be the hottest of the hot, in order to pull together a list.

After their tireless effort, here’s what we have for the COMC Hot List, for June 26th to July 10th:

The Hot List Theme

This isn’t going to be your usual theme, as we’re going to change things up a little bit. If you’ve been following the COMC Blog, then you’ve seen us talking about The Vault, a new service for high-end collectibles that COMC is bringing online next month.

To help our sellers get the most Vault Eligible items on the site and, ultimately, to the National Sports Collectors Convention for display, we’re dedicating our Hot List Theme to The Vault. That means you can send in any Vault Eligible items you’d like to get on the site, and they’ll be processed at the regular Hot List processing prices and service.

Beginning today, any and all items placed on future Hot Lists will now be scanned at 36x resolution, thus, making all Vault Eligible items on the Hot List ready to list on both COMC and The Vault!

For an item to be Vault Eligible, it will require a minimum asking price of $40 and have a minimum $20 Beckett book value, unless it is not assigned a book value due to scarcity.

So what does being on the Hot List mean?

COMC wants to encourage our users to get these hot cards into your accounts to offer for sale as quickly as possible, so starting today, any cards submitted for the Hot List will qualify for our “Hot List Special” processing. With this service, you will receive One Day processing at the special Hot List price: $0.50 per raw card and $1.00 per graded, encased, or jumbo card.

How to Submit Hot List Items for Consignment:

  • Clearly write “Hot List Special” on the outer mailing package and/or the address label.
  • $5 minimum batch fee (We recommend submitting 10+ items.)
  • 200 item maximum per week

  • Must be mailed to our US address (Our Canadian warehouse currently only supports One Month service.)
  • Any submissions received on a Friday or Saturday may not be processed until the following Monday.
  • Submissions with non-Hot List items mixed in will be downgraded to One Week service.

COMC Hot List – June 12 to June 26

Greetings and salutations to all our friends and followers, ladies and gentlemen, the young and the young at heart. It’s Wednesday and it’s time to present to you, a brand new, fresh from the oven, COMC Hot List!

We’ve been poking around the internets, doing some looking around, asking the questions that no one else is willing to ask. We’ve also been taking your feedback to last week’s Shout Out. From all of that, and a few arguments amongst the staff here along the way, we’ve managed to pull together a list of players and sets that we feel are going to be pretty popular over the next 2 weeks. Check out the list:

Geno Smith

And our special Hot Theme this time around?

With the NBA and NHL Finals happening, we’ve decided that the teams competing for their league’s Championship would be Hot List eligible. So, any players from the Chicago BlackHawks, Boston Bruins, San Antonio Spurs, or Miami Heat are on the Hot List! 

So what does being on the Hot List mean?

COMC wants to encourage our users to get these hot cards into your accounts to offer for sale as quickly as possible, so starting today, any cards from these players or sets will qualify for our “Hot List Special” processing.

Jurickson Profar

And our special Hot Theme this time around?

We’re going to make it pretty simple; with the draft behind us, and many teams running their OTAs, we decided that any 2013 Football cards would be eligible for the current Hot List.

COMC Hot List mid-week addition!

In light of his getting called up to “The Show” and all the awesomeness that followed (Did you see that DP throw?) we’re announcing that Yasiel Puig is part of the current Hot List.

And, no worries, we guarantee that he’ll also be a part of the next Hot List, coming out on June 12th.

We’ve never done something like this before, but a player like Puig is pretty rare, too! Get those cards in now!

COMC Hot List for May 15th to May 29th

Greetings and salutations, everyone! It’s Wednesday and it’s time for a new COMC Hot List!

We got a lot of great suggestions from COMC users on Facebook and Twitter after our last call out, and after conferring with the COMC processing team, we’ve put together a list of those players that are making noise and news in the sporting world, as well as a few sets we feel are going to generate a lot of interest.

Starling Marte

And our special Hot Theme this time around?

Seeing as we don’t have any hockey on the Hot List this time around, even though the NHL playoffs have entered the 2nd round, we decided that we’ll make hockey the Hot Theme. So, we’ll be accepting any 2012-13 hockey products as part of this Hot List.

So what does being on the Hot List mean?

COMC wants to encourage our users to get these hot cards into your accounts to offer for sale as quickly as possible, so starting today, any cards from these players or sets will qualify for our “Hot List Special” processing.
