Use our mailbox service to save time on shipping.  Expo sellers can send all of the cards sold to the COMC as one shipment.  Cards can be deposited into buyers’ accounts through the mailbox service.  Just have your buyers create a COMC account and label their purchases with that name.  This will allow buyers to piggyback their Expo purchases with COMC purchases for lower cost per item shipping with buyer protection. Buyers can request shipments to their COMC Mailbox accounts for the above reasons.  Read more about our mailbox service at https://www.comc.com/mailbox.

The Hunt is OVER! Item #50,000,000 Has Been Found!

The Hunt is OVER! COMC Acquires Card #50,000,000 From ePack/COMC Member!

#50000000 – 2017-18 Upper Deck – [Base] – Silver Foil #376 Chris Kreider

Earlier this year we put out a call to action asking for YOUR help in helping us secure a very important milestone card in COMC history. That item was the 50-millionth item processed by COMC in our 10+ year history and just so happened to be an ePack card from the 2017-18 Upper Deck Series 2 Hockey Set.

It took almost four months to the day, but one lucky COMC member has answered the call and claimed the $1,000 reward that we placed upon this item. Alex B. (COMC username loki__101) from Edmonton, Alberta, Canada was the lucky individual who randomly received the assigned item number of  50,000,000 when he combined 10 digital Chris Kreider base cards from the 2017-18 Series 2 Hockey Set into one physical silver foil card on ePack and transferred it to their COMC account. Alex promptly contacted our Customer Service Team to claim the reward and was gracious enough to answer a few questions for our blog!

How long have been collecting, and what do you collect?

“I collect hockey cards. I used to collect a lot as a kid and didn’t pick it back up until a few years ago (2015-16 season).”

Who are some of your favorite players?

“I am die hard Oilers fan, so of the current team McDavid and Draisaitl are my favorites. I’m also a sucker for goalies so Cujo and Bill Ranford are two of my all-time favorites.”

Do you have a favorite card in your collection?

“Growing up I was proud of my Forsberg rookie card, before he was traded in the Lindros deal. He still has a Flyers jersey on.”

Were you actively hunting for item #50,000,000, or did you come across it without much effort?

“I had bought some boxes on ePack (9-10 I think) and was really close to getting a silver foil for all of the base set. It took my a while to get the last Krieder due to its high demand. I admit I was crossing my fingers when I transferred it over to COMC and did a double take when I saw the number.”

What do you like about Upper Deck ePack?

“Its an easy was to collect, especially if you like the idea of collecting but don’t want / need to have the physical card right there. The ability to have a community for trading is also convenient.”

What do you primarily use COMC for?

“I do use it mainly for selling cards (not many). Also browsing to see what is available.”

Do you have any advice for those who use ePack or COMC?

“Find what you like and stick to it – be it a player, team etc. You’ll have more fun that way.”
