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.”

Prove Us Wrong and Win: Why The Vegas Golden Knights WILL win the Stanley Cup! (Contest)

(Update #4 (6/7/18) – The Vegas Golden Knights have been eliminated in the Stanley Cup Finals by the Washington Capitals. The winner of our contest is Cole Wolpert, who correctly picked the Caps over the Golden Knights in the Stanley Cup Finals. Impressive!

(Update #3 (5/21/18) –  The Vegas Golden Knights have advanced to the Stanley Cup Finals. Thank you to all those chose the Winnipeg Jets for playing! LET’S GO! #VegasBorn)

(Update #2 (5/7/18) – The Vegas Golden Knights have advanced from round 2. Thank you to all those who chose the San Jose Sharks for playing!)

(Update #1 (4/18/18) – The Vegas Golden Knights have advanced from round 1. Thanks to all those who chose the L.A. Kings for playing!)

We are making a BOLD prediction, COMC Nation! We’re drawing a line in the sand and proclaiming the Vegas Golden Knights as our pick to win the Stanley Cup in the 2017-18 NHL Playoffs! We can’t help but to show our support for the 1st year expansion team. We’re thrilled for the excitement that team has generated both with their rapidly growing Nevada-area local fan base, and worldwide among hockey enthusiasts. Their unlikely rise to convincingly win the Pacific Division of the Western Conference is one of the best sports stories of the year – and now we’re hoping that story continues and doesn’t end until it’s cemented in history.

Why are we so proudly behind the Vegas Golden Knights? Their success in the rink and growing support only acts as proof that there is growing demand for hockey not only across the United States, but around the globe. COMC is located just a short distance away from Seattle, WA, which has put a power play on the NHL and has demanded an expansion franchise of our own. Last month, Seattle fans put their money where their mouth is with 25,000 fans putting down deposits to be the first to purchase seasons tickets if and when Seattle is awarded an NHL franchise.

But enough grandstanding, it’s time for COMC to put our money where our mouth is! We’re willing to offer $25 COMC Store Credit to one lucky hockey Nostradamus who can correctly predict in the comments below which team can eliminate the Vegas Golden Knights from the NHL Playoffs.  Or, if you’re like us and believe the Golden Knights will reign victorious, show your support in the comments below for an chance to win once the Golden Knights win the Stanley Cup!

(Rules: One winner will be chosen at random either after the Golden Knights are eliminated from playoff contention, or when the Golden Knights win the NHL Stanley Cup. Only one entry per person. All entries must be submitted by April 15th at 12:00pm PST. Winner will be chosen at random if multiple correct answers are submitted. Must have a COMC account to claim prize)
