Default Sometimes I love COMC...

This morning saw someone posted a 30% auto-accept promo... checked out the cards, some good stuff.

Picked up a Taveras chrome for $3.75 (already sold for $4.25 in 10 minutes) and a 2013 Heritage Jeter Action SP Venezuelan back for $45. Pretty sure I can move that for $50 without a problem. Also got a bunch of other stuff. Enjoying myself. No hassle transactions.

If you pay attention you can find some nice deals.

You are right. You can find some steals on there. When people get a batch first listed especially.

Yeah, I assume that is what this was since the guy had a bunch of Heritage and Silver Slate. The site is a flipper's dream. No dealing with bad sellers or shipping. No transaction costs.

I spent a few hours scouring people's COMC accounts this weekend. I picked up about a dozen cards that were at 50% of current ebay prices haha.

I got a 2012 Bowman Chrome Matt Moore auto for $5....that was awesome.

welcome to the fun world of COMC. Deals can be had if you look around. I think it brought the fun back to collecting with the buying and flipping.
FYI if you haven't figured it out yet, there are a handful of sellers who run "50%" promos every day, but nothing ever seems to sell and there are really no deals.

do people use the RSS feed things to find out when new cards go live? It still amazes me how many offers or cards sell when my batches go live, and usually I am pricing in the wee hours of the morning (in AZ time)

I just picked up a B-Ham BC auto for $31. Not a great deal/steal but I'm having it shipped to me (and possibly graded) hoping they will spike a little when he recovers and gets called up.

I think they are selling on eBay right now for $36 ish

Something has to work like that... that Taveras was gone within 10 minutes of me listing it.

It was AWESOME for picking up minor cards in putting together collections. I'm doing a rainbow of all the Reds players in 2012 bowman chrome and its make it REALLY easy to pick up all the blue and purples.

I'm just glad they ditched the "acquired for" price. No idea what they were thinking with that one other than making flippers look bad.

I am working on my first order (lots of stuff with bv of $5-$20). How imperative is it to get them discounted appropriately after the order loads?
