COMC @ The National Sports Collector’s Convention 2016 Recap

Hello, COMC Nation!

What a whirlwind the last two weeks have been! It goes without saying that this year was by far the BEST National Sports Collector’s Convention yet for COMC. This year we saw eight COMC staff members make the cross-country trek to Atlantic City, New Jersey for the 37th Annual National Convention. This year COMC had a booth in the corporate area with the likes of Upper Deck, Panini and Topps.

Over the course of our five days at the convention, we met with hundreds of members of the COMC Nation who shared their thoughts, suggestions, and feedback with our staff! We also provided nearly two thousand 300-count boxes for collectors to fill up at the hundreds of booths around us. Even though we opted not to run a National Convention processing special this year, we accepted nearly a thousand pounds’ worth of consignment submissions. That’s a staggering amount of cards!

Tim and Steve share a laugh with a long-time COMC consignor

In lieu of a processing special, this year we opted to run daily store credit giveaway drawings three times a day for a total of $400 a day, as well as a Grand Prize drawing of $500 at the conclusion of the Convention! All those in attendance at The National who had a COMC account were eligible to enter, and those who didn’t have a COMC account…well, let’s just say a lot of accounts were created! We ran four computer stations at our booth for convention-goers to browse the COMC marketplace, sign up for or manage their accounts, and even print their submission paperwork on the spot.

In their admittedly sparse downtime, our team was able to enjoy the sights and sounds of Atlantic City at night. Under the hot summer sun, they toured the Boardwalk, enjoyed popular local restaurants such as Kelsey’s (Soul & Comfort) and Angelo’s (Italian), and tried their luck at the local casinos!

We want to thank everyone who stopped by our booth and contributed in making this year’s experience at The National the best one yet. We’ll be back next year in Chicago from July 26th-30th, 2017 for another great convention, and we hope that you’ll consider heading to the Windy City with us! No matter what you collect, there is nothing quite like the experience that is the Sports Collector’s Convention.

eBay
Some of our more seasoned consignors may have noticed we’re not offering a processing special this year. Due to our recent eBay integration, our growing team has been working incredibly hard to fulfill orders and keep happy customers. To do this, we need to keep our energies focused on quickly depositing submissions and shipping orders. We hope you’ve noticed the increased sales, which are up over 70% across our inventory!

Consignment Drop Off
As we do every year, COMC reps will be there to take a load off your back. Consignors can drop their submissions off at our booth to save you the expense of shipping your submissions back to Redmond. Just bring your cards by with the paperwork and you’re all set. If you forget your submission form or find some cards at the show you want to submit, no problem! We’ll also have computers, a printer, and free 300ct boxes at our booth.

Time with Tim
Our CEO, Tim Getsch, is once again at our booth and available to meet with you. If you’d like to sit down with him for 30 minutes, email us at timewithtim@comc.com to schedule a time slot. Please include in your email the dates and times that will work best for you and any topics you wish to discuss.

While Tim will be available to meet outside of scheduled Time with Tim, if you do plan on scheduling a meeting, please submit your request no later than Thursday, July 28th.

We’re really looking forward to the show and hope you’ll come by and say hi. We can’t wait to see you at booth #1432. Until then, happy collecting!

– The COMC Team
