Default comc?

i was turned to blowoutcards.com a few days ago, then i also see the members there linking their ebay and comc account. can someone give me the gist of what comc is about? is it an auction site like ebay or more of a private forum like here or blowout?

I'm not that familiar with blowoutcards, so I can't really make a comparison. But I'd say the listings are kinda like Amazon.. The sellers have to send the cards to comc, then they are scanned, stored, a listing is created(the seller sets the price) and shipped when sold...

http://www.comc.com/Sell.aspx

The one big upside, is that no matter who the seller is, the shipping will be combined because they are all coming from the same place.. The downside is that cards come without toploaders(any orders I've ever received, the cards have been pretty well secured and packaged, so it's not a big deal). Toploaders are available at 20 cents per card if you elect to have them..

thanks david...so if there's no toploader the card comes in a penny sleeve? or just raw?

i will check it out knowing it's a centralized shipping operation so there won't be any scamming, but i'd think the deals are few and far between, and most things are retail+?

Some of our members are on COMC. It's a good place to get newer cards for cheap prices....and they have literally millions.....You won't be scammed from everything I hear it's very safe.

I believe they were in penny sleeves(The Santana/Zobrist was my first order in a while from them, and that was the other day).. You'd be surprised about the deals though. I got that Santana for 5.24, and the cheapest ones on the bay are in the $20-30 range..

I have found many a great deals @COMC over the past year or so(also well below ebay prices). I mainly buy 60s and 70s, cards, so while condition is important, the scans are large and clear enough to make good decisions.

I've purchased many modern rookies and autographed cards on COMC and I've never been disappointed. Great prices, good selection, reasonable shipping, front/back scans. Significantly more pleasent buying experience than Ebay.

and as mentioned previously, almost impossible for scammers to ply their illicit trade.

I've used them and sportslots.com to fill in modern sets. Cheap, easy, and never had a single problem.
