COMC has surpassed eBay and Sportlots as my favorite buying site. The front and back photos of every card, the ability to make offers on cards and the fact that the cards are already in hand at COMC are all pluses. No surprises on what cards you get and no worry about dishonest sellers take the worry out of internet buying. Also the site has some great search functions and is pretty easy to navigate.
Starting earlier this year, I have been putting a decent portion of my monthly card budget into my COMC account and picking up new cards for my collection. I have waited patiently until Black Friday to have the cards shipped, who doesn't love free shipping?
This year's haul arrived a little over 2 weeks after Black Friday and was 433 cards strong.
This is what the box looked like when I cracked it open:
I moved the Dave Winfield disc aside and opened up the boxes. Here is what was staring me in the face:
I dug into the bigger box and pulled out all the scratchers. These were give aways with Black Friday shipping. I had 41 or 42 total with this shipment and after scratching them all and putting in the codes I ended up with 7 winners. There was no store credit however, only free shipping and the free shipping ends on 3/31/17. I will probably only place one order between now and then so I guess I got 6 winners that will never be used. Last year I scored a few with store credit. I don't know if they have gotten more stingy or if I just didn't have the same luck this year.
I thought I would pull out the first card and give you a sneak peak. Hmmm, is that a T206 card from COMC?
