Auction Fees & FAQ
There are no up-front fees to submit items for auction consignment. The Transaction Fee is based on the auction sale price of each single card listing and is assessed when we receive payment from the buyer.
Struggling to figure out which 2019 Bowman Chrome prospects to watch out for? Looking for a few potential sleepers this year? We have complied together a list of 10 prospects in the 2019 Bowman Draft product. This list contains everything from first round draft picks to potential sleepers that you may not know about, yet.
1. Adley Rutschman (Orioles) – With being the first overall pick in the 2019 draft, the top spot obviously had to go to Adley. The 6 foot 2, 216-pound catcher from Oregon State was a great pick up for the Baltimore Orioles. With only playing in 37 minor league games in 2019, he blasted 4 home runs, had 26 RBIs’ and added 33 hits. He also caught a combined no-hitter, so he is not lacking on the defensive end either.
2. Greg Jones (Rays)- This may be the most unique player in the draft. Jones is a switch-hitting shortstop that will most likely trend towards being a centerfielder. He is extremely athletic and puts that on display when running the bases as he took him 19 stolen bases in only 48 minor league games. He batted for an average of .335 and an OPS of .874. One thing that he will need to work out his striking out. He totaled 56 strikeouts.
3. Hunter Bishop (Giants)- Drafted 10th overall, Hunter brings in a ton of power batting from the left side of the plate. He is the younger brother of the Seattle Mariners prospect, Braden Bishop. Hunter stands at 6 5’ 210lbs which helped him tally 22 home runs his final season at Arizona State University. He is listed as an outfielder, but his home is centerfield.
4. Braden Shewmake (Braves)- Shewmake is not going to win the eye appeal, but he is going to be a fantastic shortstop for the Atlanta Braves. Unlike the other guys we have named, Braden does not have the big-time power bat. However, in 65 minor league games he was able to keep a .300 batting average, bat in 40 runs and total 74 hits. This kid knows how to hit without power.
5. Josh Jung (Rangers)- A very talented 3rd baseman out of Texas Tech had an outstanding batting average of .316 over the course of his 2019 minor league games (42 games, 2 teams). Jung is a great balance between an all-or-nothing player and all-around good player which makes him a safe bet to someday be a solid pro.
6. Riley Greene (Tigers)- Although drafted 5th overall by the Detroit Tigers, Greene fell on our list simply due age. At 19 years old, it could be awhile before we see him play any Major League Baseball. However, he did have an average to above-average minor league season with a .271 batting average, 60 hits and a .749 OPS. If you’re okay with waiting a few years, Greene is one to watch.
7. Rece Hinds (Reds)- Rece was a mid-2nd round draft pick of the Cincinnati Reds out of IMG Academy. He suffered a quad injury early in the season which limited him to only playing in 3 minor league games. With only being one year out of High School this type of injury should not worry potential Rece Hinds investors. He has plenty of pop in his bat and should put that on display this upcoming season.
8. Matthew Lugo (Red Sox)- A late 2nd round draft-pick out of the Carlos Beltran Baseball Academy, Lugo has endless potential. He is only 18 years old and has shown to have a very strong arm at shortstop. Although not a power hitter, he did post a decent .257 batting average in his 41 minor league games.
9. Tyler Callihan (Reds)- A potential sleeper in the draft, Callihan has shown to have a bright future. With 57 games played in the minors last year, we got a good sample size of what Tyler has to offer. He posted a .263 batting average, .422 slugging percentage an added 6 home runs. He still needs to develop the power which he was scouted to have in High School, but at age 19, he has plenty of time to mold himself.
10. Peyton Burdick (Marlins)- Another sleeper in the draft, Burdick fell to the Miami Marlins in the late 3rd round but has already shown to the other MLB GMs’ that they missed out. Burdick played in 69 minor league games and hit a modest 11 home runs, .308 batting average, .407 OBP and a slugging percentage of .542. These are eye popping numbers for someone to fall almost to the 4th round. Expect to see Peyton in the Majors sooner than later.

(Editor’s Note: With the end of the calendar year approaching, we like to take a moment on the COMC Blog to look back at some of our favorite and most memorable posts of the year. With 2019-20 Panini Prizm Basketball set dropping earlier this month, we thought we’d take you back to our projection of 20 of the rookies featured in the 2018-19 Panini Prizm set.)
Arguably the most anticipated basketball release of each calendar year over the last several years has been Panini Prizm Basketball. Panini’s stranglehold over the NBA trading card landscape over the last ten years thanks to an exclusive agreement with the NBA has resulted in the disappearance of once established key rookie sets like the Topps Chrome Refractor and Ultimate Collection Rookie Materials Autographs. In their place rose the new heirs to the throne such as the National Treasures Rookie Patch Auto and the Panini Prizm Silver Prizm.
Silver Prizms and their respective lower numbered parallels are the beck and call of NBA basketball collectors and speculators. We’ve seen meteoric rises of Silver Prizms of some of the game’s newest established stars in recent years. Jayson Tatum silvers were all the rage in 2017-18, while Ben Simmons set new heights in 2016-17. Kristaps Porzingis won collector’s hearts in 2015-16 Prizm, while others waited on Joel Embiid in 2014-15 Prizm. While Giannis Antetokounmpo proved everyone wrong when his 2013-14 Prizm skyrocketed, we can’t forget that the 2012-13 inaugural Prizm set featured a strong crop of rookies including Anthony Davis, Kawhi Leonard, and Kyrie Irving among others.
So now here we are in 2019 and the 2018-19 Panini Prizm market is truly starting to take form. There’s no doubt you’ve probably heard the names of the top rookies all making waves in the NBA this season. But what about the rest? That’s why we’ve got you covered with our list of 20 rookies to watch in 2018-19 Panini Prizm Basketball
Head of the Class
Luka Doncic – Doncic established himself internationally before making the leap to the NBA and has not disappointed. Averaging nearly 20 points a game this season, his meteoric rise can be attributed not only to his stellar on-court performance, but also his charisma and personality. He has all the makings of an NBA Superstar and is easily the Rookie of the Year up to this point.
Deandre Ayton – The first overall pick of the 2018 NBA Draft has lived up to the hype, with the big man posting over 16 points and 10 rebounds per game. The Phoenix Suns might be having a rough go at it this season, but a strong young core will eventually tip the scales the other direction.
Trae Young – The Atlanta Hawks Point Guard came out of the gate strong before cooling down, but still owns an impressive 15+ points and seven assists per game stat line.
Kevin Knox – Thrust into the scrutiny of the Madison Square Garden faithful, Knox has delivered, posting over 12 points per game with a 35% 3-point percentage. A big market only means big potential for the 19 year old.
Jaren Jackson Jr. – The fourth overall pick rose his stock tremendously with a 36 point performance back in November, and has elevated his game ever since.
Marvin Bagley III – Prior to sustaining an injury, we loved the direction the Kings PF was headed in. That brief scope of work was enough to nudge him ahead of our #7
Rounding out the Top 12…
7. Michael Porter Jr. – Speculation is building on Porter, who missed the majority of the 2017-18 season at Missouri and has yet to play in an NBA game. With no timetable for his return, the five star recruit out of high school doesn’t have the stat lines to back it up, but that hasn’t stopped his Silver Prizm from reaching the $50+ mark.
8. Collin Sexton – Sexton suffers the misfortune of playing for a post-Lebron Cleveland Cavaliers team, but he has performed impressively so far, posting almost 15 points per game.
9. Shai Gilgeous-Alexander – The Canadian Point Guard from ‘The 6’ has wasted no time getting acclimated to the west coast. Strong defense and the ability to score earns him a well deserved spot in our top 10.
10. Rodions Kurucs – The Latvian small forward has come on strong as of late, and has played well in limited time this season. He’s posted 24 points twice this season, earning him recognition among collectors and speculators.
11. Lonnie Walker IV – Suffering a torn meniscus in preseason was a setback, but the Spurs love what they see in the shooting guard from the University of Miami. Recently posted a 34 point performance in G-League action.
12. Mo Bamba – The Orlando Magic big man has posted decent numbers in his rookie campaign, logging 1.4 blocks per game so far. It also doesn’t hurt that a friendship with a popular rapper has resulted in off-court attention for Mo.
Don’t Sleep on These Guys..
13. Wendell Carter Jr. – Carter has shown flashes of brilliance mixed with inconsistency under center for the Chicago Bulls. Still, a 28 point performance is noteworthy enough to find his way into our favorite sleeper pick.
14. Miles Bridges – The 12th overall pick of the draft finds his way into #14 on our list as a strong sleeper pick. The versatile small forward has all the athleticism to either erupt into a play maker or carve our a niche as a solid role player.
15. Allonzo Trier – The Knicks shooting guard has garnered attention coming off of the bench, warranting play time as the Knicks look to get young. Suffered a small set back with a hamstring injury a few weeks back.
15. Robert Williams III – Drew attention with two blocks on Anthony Davis in a game back in December. Strong flashes of defense and playing for a large market earns him considerations for our list.
17. Mikal Bridges – Playing along side Deandre Ayton, the small forward from Villanova has performed commendably, posting nearly eight points per game.
18. Anfernee Simons – He has displayed phenomenal talent at the preps, and has the athleticism to boot, but has yet do anything of importance at the NBA level during his rookie campaign. Still, we have the optimism and Pacific Northwest bias to land Simons a spot on this list.
19. Kostas Antetokounmpo – The last name alone is going to draw him attention and speculation. The younger brother of Giannis was the 60th overall pick of the 2018 draft by the Philadelphia 76ers and then traded to the Dallas Mavericks. Let’s be honest, we all know what Giannis did, emerging from the ashes of mediocre stat lines to become a mega star.
20. Josh Okogie – Quickly becoming a T’Wolves fan favorite, Okogie has split time between starting and coming off the bench. We like the shooting guard’s potential.
One of the things we enjoy about these lists involving sleepers is that no one seems to want to tell us if they disagree for the sake of not drawing attention to the prospect they’re stashing! There are 53 rookies total in the 2018-19 Prizm base set, meaning 33 did not make the cut here. Who else deserves consideration? Let us know in the comments below!
It has been one long, wild, and crazy decade! As we say goodbye to 2019 and welcome in 2020, all of us here at COMC want to wish you, your loved ones, and collectors all around the world a wonderful 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, with limited email support available on both days.
If you have any questions or need assistance, please send an email to email@example.com and one of our customer service agents will be there to help!
We are very excited to enter a new decade during a time when excitement and interest within the hobby we all love has never been greater. We’ll see you in 2020!
With 2020 approaching, we wanted to remind you about the end-of-year update coming to our Current-Year Basic (1 month) and Current-Year Select (1-week) consignment services. These service levels offer expedited processing for newly released cards but have strict set year requirements which are updated twice per year.
Beginning January 1st, all cards submitted to the Current-Year service levels must be from 2019 single-year, 2019-20 dual-year, or newer products. Submissions containing any cards from other products will be assessed a missing/incorrect paperwork fee of $3.00 and the entire submission will be processed as regular Select or Basic.
Current-year submissions containing 2018-19 dual-year items must be postmarked by December 31st to be eligible for these services. On January 1st, 2018-19 cards will be retired from the Current-Year services, and submissions postmarked on this date or later will not be processed under the Current-Year services. Please take note of these changes to our current-year services when preparing your future consignment submissions. Our next Current Year Processing update will occur in June 2020.
As always, we recommend that sellers spot check the values of some of the items they are consigning that may already be available for sale on COMC. When supply exceeds demand on items, perceived value can differ from true market value. This is especially true for some 2018-19 products.
If you have any questions, simply send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and our friendly customer service team will be more than happy to assist.
What a wild ride it has been this December with the release of the 2019-20 Panini Prizm NBA Basketball Card Set. This set was expected to set the hobby on fire, partly due to the rising value of last year’s set, and partly due to a strong rookie crop led by ZION MANIA! Zion Williamson has yet to make his NBA regular season debut for the New Orleans Pelicans, but that hasn’t stopped the Zion hype train from absolutely dominating the hobby this fall!
Zion is certainly a polarizing figure, and only time will tell if he’s the next in the lineage of NBA legends like Lebron James and Michael Jordan, or if he’s the next “what could have been” ala Greg Oden and Kwame Brown. Once you get past the Zion hype, 2019-20 Prizm NBA is a set chalked full of potential future stars, with perhaps a stronger rookie class than even last year’s basketball products. We’d like to delve into that discussion and present our 10 NBA Rookies to watch from 2019-20 Panini Prizm NBA.
Obviously the biggest name in the product, Zion Williamson follows Luka Doncic from last year as the top rookie (for now) in Prizm. With his ungraded silver prizm RC’s fetching over $500 out of the gate, we haven’t seen prices like that upon a Prizm release since Ben Simmons in the 16-17 Prizm set. Williamson is a 6’6″ 285lb generational athlete who backed up the hype in his one year at Duke, posting 22 points per game on 68% field goal percentage. He’s expected to make his NBA debut in early 2020.
The clear-cut second best player in NBA Prizm just happens to also be the #2 overall pick of the 2019 NBA Draft. Ja Morant has already transitioned beautifully to the NBA level, averaging about 18 points and six assists per game through the Memphis Grizzlies first 17 games as of this writing. He’ll have a good head start for NBA Rookie of the Year over Zion and the rest of the field if he can continue that production. With his Silver prizms already doing $200+, there is no secret as to the talent Morant possesses.
This Gonzaga Bulldogs standout has the potential to be an international NBA mega star thanks to his stellar play as well as his Japanese heritage. All Rui Hachimura has done since arriving in the NBA is provide much needed stability to the Washington Wizards front court. With a statement double-double in his NBA debut and his continued progression, Rui has looked like the most NBA ready player out of the 2019 Draft so far. $100 appears to be the ground floor for his silver prizm RC’s currently.
The second Duke player to make our list, the Canadian-born RJ Barrett is seemingly unphased playing on a New York Knicks team in otherwise complete disarray, having just fired their Head Coach David Fizdale. The Knicks has been trying to find their way for quiet some time, but putting the ball in Barrett’s hands seems like a good start. Through 20+ games, he’s average 14 points as the team’s starting shooting guard.
The seventh overall pick in the draft by the Chicago Bulls is already a record setter, hitting SEVEN three pointers in a single quarter against the New York Knicks on November 12th. That feat immediately elevated Coby White‘s stock as a long range threat. White has nothing to prove when it comes to scoring, but improvements playing off the ball will help White evolve into a feared guard the Bulls desperately need.
The fourth overall pick from Virginia, De’Andre Hunter has meshed well with Trae Young in Atlanta as the Hawks look to build a future contender. He posted a ridiculous six steal performance in mid-November loss to Phoenix, and followed that up with two 25+ point games in a three game span about a week later. Hunter’s early season performance has flown under the radar of other similar performing rookies, making him an excellent buy-low candidate from 2019-20 Prizm out of the gate.
This Kentucky Wildcat already has a legendary last name, now it’s time to see if his skills can transcend to that status as well. Tyler Herro started off his rookie campaign strong, pouring in 29 points in his fourth game, and he continues to remain productive in other areas of the stat sheet as well. Shooting nearly 40% from down town, the Miami Heat have caught the NBA by surprise this season. If they can continue this run into the Spring, Herro’s ETA to becoming a household name will definitely be fast-tracked.
With Kevin Durant gone, Klay Thompson recovering from surgery, and Steph Curry going down to injury early in the season, the Golden State Warriors needed someone to step up. Eric Paschall, a 2nd-round pick, answered the call, averaging over 17 points a game. This may be a throwaway year for the Warriors, but they picked up a major piece for the future in Paschall, who’s extended time on the court this season will benefit him tremendously when the Warriors are back at full strength for another championship run in the future.
The Charlotte Hornets are quietly building themselves a strong team through the last two draft years. Adding PJ Washington to a potent starting lineup featuring sophomores Devonte Graham and Miles Bridges, this Kentucky Wildcats standout will have all the support he needs to evolve at the NBA Level. The 12th overall pick dropped 27 points in his NBA debut, and has been a consistent producer ever since. As this young core continues to grow together in Charlotte, they may be only one or two pieces away from being a major playoff threat.
The final member of the big three to be drafted from Duke in 2019, Cam Reddish has not quite found his footing yet for the Atlanta Hawks. Though he has been outshined up to this point by fellow rookie DeAndre Hunter, Reddish still has high upside, which is why he was taken 10th overall by the Hawks. Reddish showed a glimmer of that talent in early December with a 25 point performance in a loss to the Brooklyn Nets.
Snubbed by Panini: Kendrick Nunn
We couldn’t wrap up this article without talking about Kendrick Nunn, who as of this blog post has been a noticeable omission from all checklists with the exception of one Panini Instant card. If the rumors are true, and Panini releases 2019-20 Prizm Series 2 Basketball in 2020, Nunn will likely be the centerpiece of the set in terms of true rookie cards. The undrafted Miami Heat guard is averaging over 15 points per game and making a case for rookie of the year!
You never know who will be the next rookie to rise through the ranks and come up big for their team. Not all of these players will have outstanding careers, but history tells us that there is always one or two players who make it worth it to dig through those old boxes of forgotten rookie card of years past!
