    COMC Final Shipment - Requested 9/17/21 - DELIVERED 11/6/21

    I had been steering clear of COMC cards on eBay and their site but I may have to reconsider after reading this news.

    Game used Cards - Is anyone still a fanatic over them?

    I still pick up game-used cards of stars and hall of famers like Griffey Jr. etc here and there but overall, I tend to steer clear of game-used unless it's of older, 70's and before era players because they don't tend to hold their value too well unless it's an autographed game-used card.

    This is a steal

    The question is how long will it take to get to you, though. Could be several months.

    Is now the time to buy or sell?

    That's a good, thorough response. I still kick myself for not picking up more highly graded vintage cards before the pandemic hit and the prices spiked. I was able to pick up some but I passed on a lot more, some that increased tenfold in some cases. I've noticed that the prices of retail...

    Is now the time to buy or sell?

    I know that in general, it depends on the player when deciding whether to buy or sell cards but overall, do people here think that the hobby is on a downturn/crash or do you think sales will rebound to similar to what they were at the peak of the covid pandemic? Personally, I think that now is...

    COMC Final Shipment - Requested 9/17/21 - DELIVERED 11/6/21

    I haven't ordered any cards from COMC since late last year. The wait time is just too long now. I used to find some of my best deals on there but now I'm just mainly sticking to eBay. It's a shame that they just can't seem to get their act together anymore in terms of reducing the shipping...

    Has anyone purchased cards from COMC on eBay recently?

    Just wondering if anyone here has purchased any cards from Check Out My Cards on eBay recently and if so, how long did it take you to receive the card(s)? I have my eye on a couple of cards but don't want to buy if they'll take months to get to me.

    UPDATED eBay seller to avoid - rambling160ps

    eBay does really suck now but what other alternative really is there that reaches so many people around the world? Check Out My Cards is the next best option but their shipping speed is slow as molasses now. Sellers especially have no choice but to deal with it.

    eBay payout question

    I agree with you about the monthly fees. Not being hit with seller fees at the end of the month is a bit better and I do prefer to have them take out the fees right away.

    Anyone doing a fantasy football league like we used to do on here?

    I'm a fantasy football fanatic and I'm in 6 money leagues this year. I find it to be a fun diversion though it can be a bit stressful at times when a lot of money is on the line.

    eBay payout question

    I took a break from eBay for about 6 months or so and recently started selling again. I just sold an item and it says: "The order is complete and we've made the funds available for payout." I had heard it was taking as long as 5 business days for the money to clear a seller's bank account...

    COMC shipping turnaround times

    What are the Check Out My Cards site shipping turnaround times at now? Went to the site to check but couldn't find any info. I want to buy some cards from there but don't want to wait several months to get my order.

    The National - (Chicago, IL) thread

    I attended earlier today and was there for about 2.5 hours. I was very impressed with the selection of sports items which are usually found at The National every year. I spent a lot of my time at the $30 and under boxes and picked up various cards which I felt were good deals which I confirmed...

    Cool. I will be there on Saturday. What types of items are you selling? Are you just selling cards or other memorabilia, too?
