Fresh Out of the Pack #2 – Newly Released Sets on the COMC Marketplace!

Hello COMC Nation,

In our ongoing series ‘Fresh out of the Pack’ , we take a look at the latest sets that have found their way to the COMC Marketplace. As these sets are among the newest released, consignors are still opening product found at their local hobby shops and purchased online and submitting it to COMC, meaning our inventory is continuing to grow of these sets. Don’t get discouraged if we don’t have your player or team in stock! Fresh new inventory of these sets will be added for many months to come, so be sure to check back often!


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 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!

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 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!

– The COMC Team

Happy 4th of July!

As a reminder, our phones will be turned off Tuesday in observance of the holiday. Customer Service support will resume Wednesday morning.



Now get out there and enjoy the hot dogs, the cold drinks, and time with friends and family!


COMC Consignment Fee Update

As part of our ongoing efforts to improve the COMC marketplace and provide more value to our customers, we’re making changes to the services that we offer. To improve average processing times on our services, we’re changing our rates as of Saturday, July 1, 2017. Along with these changes, we’re introducing some new services and options to help you get your items listed quickly and sold at the best prices.

What’s Changing

On July 1, 2017

  • Processing rates change
  • New, faster processing services for current year cards
  • New option to use Basic or Select processing for graded and oversized items
  • Increased Maximum List Price for Select processing
  • New fee for the Redemption service
  • Removed support for unrecognized third party graders and authenticators
  • New submission paperwork requirement

Updated Processing Services

We are committed to offering our buyers and sellers the very best experience on the COMC marketplace. One of the areas we’re determined to improve is our processing times. As many of us know, the demand for trading cards is often at its highest near the product’s release date, and we want to ensure that buyers can come to COMC and find all the hobby’s most recently released sets.

To accomplish this goal, we’re excited to announce our new Current-Year Basic 1-Month and Current-Year Select 1-Week processing services.

Current-Year Basic 1-Month

Get your new cards listed quickly! For just $0.30 per card, we provide actual images of the front and back of your cards and identify them into our industry standard catalog in one month or less using Current-Year Basic 1-Month.

To qualify for the reduced processing time, all cards contained in a Current-Year Basic 1-Month submission must be from product released during the current year, as specified on the Processing Fees page and in the Submission Wizard. Submissions with cards outside of the specified year will be assessed a $3 missing/incorrect paperwork fee and will be processed as Basic 2-Month.

Current-Year Select 1-Week

If you want cards in your account even faster, use the Current-Year Select 1-Week service for only $0.60 per card and your submission will be guaranteed to deposit into your account within 1 week.

To qualify for the reduced processing time, all cards contained in a Current-Year Select 1-Week submission must be from product released during the current year, as specified on the Processing Fees page and in the Submission Wizard. Submissions with cards outside of the specified year will be assessed a $3 missing/incorrect paperwork fee and will be processed as Select 2-Week.

Basic 2-Month

Basic 2-Month is now offered for $0.30 per card. The Basic level fee increase is intended, in part, to discourage flooding COMC with low-end commons. COMC is designed to be cost effective for items that might sell for $1 or more. Occasionally people find success with cheaper items, but that is not our goal. Please use your best judgment when submitting your consignments by checking the site to make sure we don’t already have too many copies of your cards listed. We want you to have a great selling experience on COMC, so if you ever have any questions about the best types of cards to send in, please contact Customer Service so we can help you out.

We recommend using the Basic 2-Month service for lower-end cards that are older or out of season. Basic 2-Month submissions are guaranteed to be in your account in two months or less. If you have new cards from products released this year, please use the new Current-Year Basic 1-Month service to get your items listed faster.

Select 2-Week

We also offer the Select 2-Week option for cards you expect will sell for $10 to $100, which may include rookies, low-numbered and short printed inserts and parallels, autographs, and memorabilia cards. The maximum list price has been increased to $200 for Select 2-Week. It will cost an extra $0.50 to charge more than $200.

Select 2-Week is offered for $0.60 per card and is guaranteed to be in your account in two weeks or less. If you have new cards from products released this year, please use the new Current-Year Select 1-Week service to get your items listed faster.

Premium 3-Day

Our fastest option, tailored specifically for high-end cards that you expect will sell for more than $100, is our Premium 3-Day service for $1.20 per card. Premium 3-Day is reserved for the hottest rookies, autographs, 1/1s, and any other cards that you want to list for sale at the fastest guaranteed turnaround time.

You are no longer required to use the Premium service for graded or oversized items. You can now process them using Basic or Select.

The Submission Wizard will reflect the updated rates and services on July 1, so to qualify for the old rates, be sure to use the Submission Wizard and print your paperwork by June 30 and have your shipment postmarked by July 1.

Redemption Service

We love that our unique marketplace offers you the ability to list and sell your redemption cards while they’re in the process of being fulfilled. This revolutionary feature is exclusive to COMC. Nowhere else can you do that! Due to the labor-intensive nature of redemption cards, we now charge an additional $1.20 fee per redemption card consigned to us. You can still submit redemption cards using any of our consignment services if the redemption is unscratched and the code is not exposed. We are still unable to support redemption cards with an exposed code, such as Panini Points, as we have no way to verify whether the code has been redeemed.

Graded Cards

Great news for those of you who have lots of graded cards you want to list for sale on COMC: Graded cards can now be submitted at any service level for an additional $0.30 per card. What this means is that you can now send lower-end graded cards with your Basic submission, mid-end graded cards as Select, and high-end graded cards as Premium.

Please note that, for all future card submissions, we now support only the following third-party grading companies:

  • Beckett Grading Service (BGS, BVG, BCCG)
  • Professional Sports Authenticator (PSA)
  • Sportscard Guaranty (SGC)
  • KSA Certification (KSA)

We also support only the following third-party autograph authenticators:

  • James Spence Authentication (JSA)
  • Professional Sports Authenticator (PSA/DNA)
  • Beckett Authentication Services (BAS)
  • Sportscard Guaranty Authentic (SGC)

Cards encased by companies other than those listed above cannot be listed for sale on COMC, but you can submit them to Beckett Grading Service through your COMC account. Upon return, you will be able to list any cards graded by BGS for sale. Cards rejected by BGS will still return to your account, but you can only include them in a return shipment request.

Submission Paperwork

With these changes in mind, we do want to thank you for including complete paperwork with your submissions over the years. Submission paperwork is designed to help you organize your consignment submissions, leaving you with peace of mind knowing that all your cards are accounted for and are on their way to making it into the correct account using the service level you specify.

On our end, complete submission paperwork makes the process of entering submissions much smoother, which means fewer errors and more time spent processing your cards as timely as possible.

Beginning ­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­July 1, all shipments with missing or incorrect paperwork will be charged a $3 fee per service level used. Although your quantity count doesn’t need to be 100% accurate (we appreciate when it is!), if the count appears off by more than 20%, we may assess the $3 fee on that transaction. When assessing your quantity, please do not use the “box size” count as your estimate. Because cards vary in thickness, there is a significant variance in how many cards a box will hold.


We appreciate the consignment partnership that we’ve had the pleasure of developing with you over the years and anticipate many improvements that these new changes will bring to our service, our marketplace, and the hobby. Together we will continue to make COMC the Safe and Easy Way to Buy and Sell.
