COMC Company Update – April 2022

I am happy to announce that COMC’s first quarter of 2022 was strong. We sold and shipped 16% more cards and listed 22% more cards for sale over Q4 2021. We continue to make investments to seamlessly get your cards listed and sold, so you can upgrade to cards you love, and quickly take possession of anything you want in hand.

As the first company to introduce vaulting cards over 15 years ago, it is fun to see a greater demand for it. In the early days, Tim and I believed that the benefits of collecting with COMC were so obvious and valuable that it was only a matter of time before it would be known as the best way to collect. We at COMC have built the largest card vault and growing, giving you even more choices to collect as this idea goes mainstream. COMC provides a premier collecting experience not only for graded cards and rookies, but also for the long tail, so there is something for everyone. We have spent over a decade listening to collectors and optimizing for efficiency. With the concerted push to grow the hobby and so many new faces and products, we will continue listening and iterating to meet the needs of our community of collectors.

Last month we ran our March Madness promotion and received some exciting new submissions that will appear on the site over the next few weeks. We heard that you would like us to reopen submission drop-offs at our headquarters, so we now offer the opportunity to schedule drop-offs. You will also see a COMC booth at many more events throughout the US and Canada this year for you to drop off your submissions.

I look forward to continuing to update you on all the exciting happenings here at COMC. I encourage you to continue providing feedback on how we can further improve your experience and our services.

COMC Company Update – March 2022

At our company meeting this past week, Tim announced our 2022 goal to list and ship 50% more cards than last year. We are excited and ready to bring more joy to you and our fellow collectors. To achieve this, we are focusing on driving listing and shipping times down, providing an even better experience for you.

In February, we increased our listing numbers over the previous month and developed a new process to reduce listing times. Effective yesterday, we launched updates to our Submission Wizard. These changes allow you to segment your items by the type of content within each service level, enabling us to list your items more efficiently. As we list your items more quickly, you will soon see reduced times quoted for our Listing Services. Our shipping team is back to full capacity and is driving our ship times down once again.

The COMC team is on board with our mission to maximize what you care about and minimize what you don’t by creating a fun trading card space for our customers, partners, and collectors.

COMC Company Update – February 2022

We are off to a strong start at COMC and prepared for what is shaping up to be an incredible year. Our Listing team recently implemented some significant process changes to increase output and improve service quality. We are set up to list more cards than ever before. Buyers now have a much wider selection to choose from, and we sold 30% more cards in January than we did in December.


With the shipping backlog of 2021 behind us, January brought the Omicron variant and a winter storm, both of which severely impacted staffing levels on our Fulfilment team early last month. Some domestic economy orders were delayed about two weeks, and our Canada transit also experienced delays. The setback will be temporary, and the team is keeping affected customers informed with regular communication and updated shipping dates until all orders are shipped on time.


COMC has seen the many ebbs and flows of the hobby over the past 16 years. With all the latest breaking news, we remain committed to delivering the services, experience, and innovation that collectors need. We look forward to an exciting year together as we continue to be your trusted partner.

COMC Company Update – January 2022

Happy New Year! May this year bring peace, success, and joy to you and your loved ones.

As we reflect on the past year, we are so grateful for your support through all the opportunities and challenges we faced. In 2021, we moved into our new facility, which will allow us to scale in 2022 and beyond. We invested in new warehouse equipment to support our team and maximize their output. We built an amazing team and are listing, selling, and shipping more cards than ever before. 

Going into 2022, we are focusing on our Listing team and our technology to reduce our Listing times, give you options, sell your cards, and connect you with the items you love to collect. We are prioritizing your customer experience with new resources, content, and tutorials to create a more direct and personalized experience. 

Reflecting on December, we are happy to report that almost all orders placed from our Black Friday sale have shipped! Our shipping services remain on schedule, so now is a great time to get those items in hand if you have been waiting. We successfully resolved an issue with our eBay store that impacted customers during our December eBay auction promotion. Our customer service response times continue to be within 24 hours, so we encourage you to reach out should you need support. Since our December eBay auction promotion has been such a success and your response to it has been so positive, we decided to extend it into January! Please continue sending us your feedback, as we are listening.

Each year is an opportunity to serve you in a better way. May your collection and our partnership grow in 2022.

COMC Company Update – December 2021

There is much for us to celebrate as we near the end of the year. In July, Tim committed to eliminating the shipping backlog by Black Friday. I am proud to share that our team has achieved that goal!  Not only did we drive our shipping times back down, but we did so while increasing our shipping output by over 60% year-over-year.

In November, our Listing services continue to meet and exceed quoted dates, and our focus for December is to reduce our published Listing times. As we wrapped up the month with our Black Friday sales event, we were pleased to see many customers take advantage of the discounted shipping and cash back on their COMC Store Credit purchases.

Throughout the month, we focused on driving your sales and optimizing your joy as a collector on our marketplace. To continue this effort, we are offering a COMC December Auction Event on eBay, where all cards are eligible, and there is no minimum auction fee. As a collector, you will want to keep an eye out for great deals to build your PC. As a flipper, you can transfer those items directly to your COMC account and put them right back up for sale. As a seller, we encourage you to try this service over the next month and share your feedback.

We look forward to launching additional improvements and offerings in the new year as we continue our commitment to being your trusted partner. It brings us great joy to keep investing in your experience and provide the safe and easy way to buy and sell trading cards.

Happy holidays to you and your loved ones!

COMC Company Update – November 2021

It is with great satisfaction that I share this update with you. October has been a month of tremendous progress across all our teams. As we gear up for our biggest Black Friday weekend ever to drive your sales and fill out your collection, we continue to ensure that our teams are ready. We remain on track to reduce Economy ship times to 1 month by Black Friday.

Our Listing Team is consistently completing submissions on time and is even completing submissions ahead of schedule.

To thank you for being part of the COMC community and celebrate these milestones together, we will be offering $60 worth of free consignment in November. Please stay tuned for additional details regarding our Customer Appreciation Offer. I encourage you to give us a try, especially if you have been waiting for our production times to come back down. Now is the time for a remarkedly improved experience of buying and selling through COMC.

We are committed to providing every trading card enthusiast the safe and easy way to buy and sell cards. Consigning with COMC gets your cards on the two largest marketplaces for sports card singles, COMC and eBay, at fixed price or auction.  As a buyer, you have the widest selection of cards and can easily transfer and house your purchases in your COMC account. COMC offers flexibility in managing your inventory, allowing you to ship your items right away, ship them later, or relist them for sale. Empowering you is what COMC is about – you can do it all through your COMC account.

As we move into the holiday season, I look forward to sharing more exciting news and updates with you. Tim and I thank you for being an essential part of the COMC community and entrusting us with what brings you great joy.

Thank you for your continued support as part of the COMC community. Not only are we excited to be entering basketball, football, and hockey season, but we are blessed to be a part of this fun and fast-moving industry. We have made some heavy investments this year as your trusted partner, so you can buy, sell, and flip cards. We focused our efforts on improving customer experience by reducing response times to customer inquiries, decreasing shipping times, and optimizing our quality assurance processes.

We are happy to share our wins! Our Rushed shipping service is now going out in under 4 days. We are making consistent progress each week to clear out the Economy shipping backlog and reduce our Economy ship times. You should expect to see Economy ship times decrease to 1 month by Black Friday.

We are providing same-day responses to customer inquiries. To continue our mission to deliver the best-in-class customer experience, we are enhancing the customer resources available in our COMC Help Center, extending our Live Chat hours, and optimizing our website.

We launched our new Fresh Pulls discount, so you can get your in-demand items for sale cost-effectively while decreasing the turnaround time to list and sell them. In addition to this new offering, we will be promoting Elite and Auction items both directly through our COMC channels and in partnership with eBay.
