BGS Grading Changes and Expedited Services Update

Hello COMC Nation!

Each Spring we announce updates and changes to the Beckett Grading Services offered through COMC. This year, we are bringing to you our fastest BGS turn-around time ever with our new 3-Week service. Additionally, we are making changes to our current 6-Week service level so we can continue to meet our customer’s expectations of accurate and guaranteed time frames.

Please note that regardless of service level chosen, all items submitted for grading through COMC are subject to the 1% declared value fee for insurance purposes. Items can be submitted for grading via the actions tab of the item that you want to submit to grading within your COMC inventory manager.

What’s Changing on April 25th, 2018:

New 3-Week Expedited BGS Service Level Added!

You asked and we listened! We all know that players can get hot in an instant and market value can change in the blink of an eye. Starting this week, COMC Members seeking grading services for their time-sensitive items can submit their items to our new 3-Week expedited BGS Service, our fastest turnaround time ever. We’re offering the 3-Week service at $40 per item, with autographed cards an additional $2 and oversized cards an additional $8.

Changes to our current 6-Week Service

In accordance with a BGS rate increase in 2018, COMC is also adjusting rates to reflect those changes. The base rate for our 6-Week service is now $21, with add-ons of $2 for autographs and $8 per oversized item. The guaranteed time frame for this service will remain unchanged.

The cut-off time to submit items under the old rate is April 24th, 2018 at 11:59pm.

The Hunt for Item #50,000,000! – $1,000 Store Credit Reward

Help COMC acquire this milestone card and win $1000 COMC Store Credit

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 set went live on the ePack website yesterday to the delight of collectors!

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!

Prove Us Wrong and Win: Why The Vegas Golden Knights WILL win the Stanley Cup! (Contest)

(Update #3 (5/21/18) –  The Vegas Golden Knights have advanced to the Stanley Cup Finals. Thank you to all those chose the Winnipeg Jets for playing! LET’S GO! #VegasBorn)

(Update #2 (5/7/18) – The Vegas Golden Knights have advanced from round 2. Thank you to all those who chose the San Jose Sharks for playing!)

(Update #1 (4/18/18) – The Vegas Golden Knights have advanced from round 1. Thanks to all those who chose the L.A. Kings for playing!)

We are making a BOLD prediction, COMC Nation! We’re drawing a line in the sand and proclaiming the Vegas Golden Knights as our pick to win the Stanley Cup in the 2017-18 NHL Playoffs! We can’t help but to show our support for the 1st year expansion team. We’re thrilled for the excitement that team has generated both with their rapidly growing Nevada-area local fan base, and worldwide among hockey enthusiasts. Their unlikely rise to convincingly win the Pacific Division of the Western Conference is one of the best sports stories of the year – and now we’re hoping that story continues and doesn’t end until it’s cemented in history.

Why are we so proudly behind the Vegas Golden Knights? Their success in the rink and growing support only acts as proof that there is growing demand for hockey not only across the United States, but around the globe. COMC is located just a short distance away from Seattle, WA, which has put a power play on the NHL and has demanded an expansion franchise of our own. Last month, Seattle fans put their money where their mouth is with 25,000 fans putting down deposits to be the first to purchase seasons tickets if and when Seattle is awarded an NHL franchise.

But enough grandstanding, it’s time for COMC to put our money where our mouth is! We’re willing to offer $25 COMC Store Credit to one lucky hockey Nostradamus who can correctly predict in the comments below which team can eliminate the Vegas Golden Knights from the NHL Playoffs.  Or, if you’re like us and believe the Golden Knights will reign victorious, show your support in the comments below for an chance to win once the Golden Knights win the Stanley Cup!

(Rules: One winner will be chosen at random either after the Golden Knights are eliminated from playoff contention, or when the Golden Knights win the NHL Stanley Cup. Only one entry per person. All entries must be submitted by April 15th at 12:00pm PST. Winner will be chosen at random if multiple correct answers are submitted. Must have a COMC account to claim prize)
