|MOST OF THESE AUTOGRAPHS ARE REALLY NICE.|
And the deals were screaming.
I was about to have a stash of Topps Archives SPs, inserts and a few other singles shipped when the site announced its Black Friday deals, including free and reduced shipping. So I held off and picked up even better deals during that weekend.
While tempted then to write about the awesome experience, I held off until I received my shipments. After all, if my cards came looking like they were packed by a rabid chimp, so much for the great deals. I received my first in a box late last week and my second in an envelop Monday, all arriving quickly and shipped neatly and securely.
|ALWAYS WANTED THE SPACEMAN'S|
AUTOGRAPH, MINE FOR $9.
The website is easy to navigate and search. With patience, there are terrific deals to be had. Throw the Beckett price guide out the window. A lot of the cards I sought were already priced reasonably but buying several from one seller is a good excuse to use the make offer option. Each time, my offer was accepted.
My initial lot was eligible for reduced but not free shipping. After closing that out, I bought several Archives reprints that were on sale during Black Friday weekend, plus a few autographed inserts -- including the Wally Backman for $2.95 -- as part of my second transaction, which was eligible for free shipping.
The communication from COMC was terrific. I emailed a question during Black Friday weekend about my account and it was responded to within an hour. The customer-service staff must have been busy as hell.
|GOT ALL OF THE CLOTH INSERTS, THANKS TO COMC.|
For everything else, it's COMC all the way.
