Drop-Off Submission Information
We’re excited to offer our users the option to drop off their consignments at our booth. Whether you’ve already been preparing a new COMC submission or plan to consign cards you find at the show, save the cost of shipping by dropping off your submissions directly with COMC! Our team at the National will be accepting submissions for all our consignment services:
- Direct To Grading
- eBay Auctions
- Fresh Pulls
Please carefully read the instructions below for best practices for prepping your consignments for drop-off:
1) All submissions must have complete and accurate printed paperwork by using our Submission Wizard. To speed up the drop-off process, please pack your items securely for shipment and print your submission paperwork in advance. Be sure to select the Drop Off @ Rosemont, IL – National Sports Collectors Convention option within the Submission Wizard as shown below:
2) Ensure your submission is packed properly and securely. We strongly recommend using one-row boxes for your submissions instead of multi-row boxes (such as 660 or 800-count boxes). Please, no loose card submissions, or submissions in boxes not intended for trading cards. COMC will not be providing boxes for card submissions.
3) The cut-off time for accepting submissions at all events is one hour before the show ends each day.
4) Please allow up to 7-10 days for consignments submitted at the event to reach our Redmond, WA facility. Your submissions from the event will be entered into your account and begin processing during that time period following the event.
5) If you plan to drop off a submission of 3,000 or more raw cards, or 300 or more graded cards at the event, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org prior to the event for approval. Large submissions of 3,000 raw cards or 300 graded cards may require additional coordination and will not be accepted without approval.
We will have computer stations with printers set up for consignors to use at the show. These stations often get busy during peak show hours, so we encourage you to print your submission slips in advance to make your drop-off process quick and easy!
