COMC Supported Trading Cards

Disclaimer

If you have a collectible you’d like to list on COMC but are unsure if we will support it, please contact us at staff@comc.com prior to submitting the item. Items we receive that are not supported will incur regular processing and shipping fees, but will not be listed for sale on COMC.

The following guidelines will be updated as needed. We’ll communicate any major changes to the Supported Trading Card policy.

Criteria

Supported cards must meet all of the following criteria:

Single Card – No factory sealed boxes, packs, or sets. Multi-piece cards (e.g. Thunder and Lightning, Cardsupials, etc.) will be separated and processed individually unless still sealed (e.g. 1997-98 Skybox Premium And One…, Allen & Ginter Rip Cards, etc.).

Licensed – By League, Team, Player’s Association, Production Company, etc. No unlicensed trading cards, art cards, or unlicensed sketch cards.

Authentic – Reprints must be clearly stated as such on the card. Some heavily counterfeited cards will require grading (1986-87 Fleer Jordan). Cards declined by major grading companies (1985 Chong Modesto A’s McGwire) may be Unsupported. Backdoored cards may also be unsupported.

Family-Friendly – No swimsuit/lingerie/nude model cards (Bench Warmers, Playboy, etc.) or cards depicting suggestive poses, explicit language, or excessive violence. Exceptions may be made for subjects with historical significance (e.g. 1940s pin-up cards, historic war sets, etc.).

Sellable Condition – We accept vintage cards of all conditions (Altered cards will be noted as such). Modern cards printed after 1980 must be in Near Mint-Mint condition or better. If a modern card is in lower than Near Mint-Mint condition and you’d like to list it, you may submit it through the Premium or Select processing service levels, where it will receive a detailed condition note.
