On The Road – Catch Us at These Card Shows in 2018!

We’ll be hitting the road in 2018! Be sure to catch us at a show!

Hello COMC Nation!

The start of a new year means new opportunities to catch us at card shows across the United States and Canada! It is always such a pleasure to get to meet with our buyers and sellers face-to-face at shows and hear your feedback, suggestions and experiences using COMC!

We will have a booth set up and representatives present at the shows listed below. We will be accepting drop-off consignments at each of these shows:

April 21st & 22nd
The Summit Sports Collectibles Show VIIII
Edmonton (Sherwood Park), Alberta, Canada

May 4th – 6th
The Sport Card & Memorabilia Expo
Mississauga, Ontario, Canada

August 1st – 5th
The National Sports Collectors Convention
Cleveland, Ohio, United States

Nov 9th – 11th
The Sport Card & Memorabilia Expo
Mississauga, Ontario, Canada

Vendors attending these shows can now partner with COMC

This year we’re seeking vendors who will be setting up at The Expo and The National that would like to represent COMC by wearing our apparel throughout the show. In return, participating vendors will receive a voucher that can be used to pay for processing fees on your upcoming COMC submissions.  Please email staff@comc.com if you are interested in registering.  Because we require a minimum number of participants, vendors who confirm registration in the month of January will get a extra bonus!  More details to come as the program develops.

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!

COMC at the National Sports Collectors Convention July 26th-30th

Hello COMC Nation!

The 38th Annual National Sports Collectors Convention in Chicago, IL is just three weeks away, and we can’t wait to see you there! The convention will be held at the Donald E. Stephens Convention Center from Wednesday, July 26 – Sunday, July 30. COMC representatives will be on hand at Corporate Pavilion Booth 646 to take consignment submissions and chat about COMC and all things card related. We also have some fun giveaways and social media events planned, so be sure to swing by and say hello.


Spin to Win

The Spin is In! Come by the booth during any day of the show and sign in to your COMC account to spin the wheel for your chance to win COMC store credit or one of several grand prize cards. Don’t have a COMC account yet? No problem! We’ll have computers set up at the show where you can sign up for your free COMC account and get your entry to spin the wheel.

Every spin is guaranteed to win a prize, and you’ll also earn an exclusive bonus gift to take with you, just for spinning! One spin per person during the show, and you don’t need to be present to win. Cards and store credit prizes will be issued to your COMC account after the show, so be on the lookout for a nice little bonus to your COMC account when you get home.

Consignment Submission Drop Off

Here at COMC, we’re all about doing the work so you can enjoy the hobby and we’ll be at the show to take it a step further. Don’t even bother shipping your COMC submissions, we got you covered. Whether you’re bringing your cards from home or you find some gems at the show you want to flip, we’ll cover the postage for all consignment submissions you drop off with us at the show.

To speed up the process, please pack your items securely for shipment and print your submission paperwork in advance. We’ll still have computers and a printer there if you find cards at the show and need to create another submission.

New Current-Year Processing

We just introduced a couple exciting new options to help you list your current-year cards faster. Current-Year Basic guarantees your cards list within 1 month for only $0.30/card, and Current-Year

Select guarantees 1 week for only $0.60/card! The National is a perfect opportunity to grab some of the hobby’s latest releases and try out a couple of our newest processing services.

Time with Tim

COMC Founder and CEO Tim Getsch looks forward to the National every year so he can to meet face to face with many of the thousands of COMC users and hear their feedback, ideas, and the experiences they’ve had with our services.

If you’d like to take some time to sit down with Tim for 30 minutes at the show, email us at timewithtim@comc.com and we’ll get you scheduled. In your email, include your dates and times of availability as well as any topics you wish to discuss. Please send your meeting request no later than Thursday, July 20.

Due Dates during The National

Many of us will be representing COMC at the booth this year, but this time around we also wanted to encourage some other employees to attend the National. Because we will be short-staffed back at the office, all Select and Premium due dates that normally would have fallen between July 26 and July 30 will receive a July 31 due date.

The National is one of the most exciting events in trading cards, and we anticipate this year’s will be the best one yet. See you there!

Happy Collecting!

COMC on the Road – Edmonton Recap & Upcoming Shows!


COMC has been on the road this Spring actively involved in the card show circuit all throughout the U.S. and Canada! We’ve been enjoying spending time face-to-face with our buyers and sellers, accepting consignments and answering any questions that you may have. We’re also happy to report that hundreds of new accounts have been created on COMC by first-time buyers and sellers who are interested and eager to get their COMC experience started!

Our Canadian Processing Facility Manager, Barry, relayed the following after the April 22nd & 23rd Edmonton Summit Show:

“On behalf of the COMC Canada team, I would like to take a moment to thank everyone who stopped by our booth. The Edmonton Show exceeded our wildest expectations, and it was just a great group of collectors who attended the show. We helped introduce new customers to the many services offered by COMC. Thank you to everyone who attended the Summit show and made our trip memorable!”

thumbnail_20170330_201318In addition, the COMC Prize Wheel made its anticipated debut at the Edmonton show and was a huge hit, particularly with young collectors. The Grand Prize offered via the Prize Wheel was an entry into a drawing to win a 2015-16 Upper Deck Artifacts #205 Connor McDavid. At the end of the show, it was COMC member Addy272001 who took home the coveted McDavid!

The Prize Wheel will then tour East to Ontario for the Sport Card & Memorabilia Expo on May 5, 6, & 7, where, just by having a COMC account, show attendants can spin to win an entry into our grand prize drawing for a 2016-17 Upper Deck #201 Auston Matthews rookie card, as well as other store credit prizes! Given that at times there were queues to register an account at our booth, we recommend creating an account beforehand to avoid delays if you do not have a COMC account already.

COMC will be located in the corporate area of the matthewsToronto show this year and, as always, we will be accepting submissions! Please use the submission wizard option for Expo drop-offs and package your items well.

Lastly, in addition to the Toronto show in May, representatives from COMC will be on hand to accept submissions at the Twin Oaks show at Mall 205 on April 29th in Portland, OR. We hope to see as many members of the COMC Nation as possible out on the road!
