Dan is a stand up guy and I by no means believe that he bailed on the sale.

Now about 90% of my watchlist is full book so a pricing glitch is the most likely scenario.

It's possible he bailed on the sale at least for some cards. I was concerned that there simply wasn't enough money on the site to buy all his cards without him losing too much money. I wouldn't blame him if that's what happened, some of the prices I got on cards were pretty ridiculous. And like 80% of his stuff still hasn't been sold.

Not questioning his integrity, he can do whatever he wants as far as I'm concerned. It was/is an awesome sale regardless.

Although he has also started repricing the cards that have no book value as well.

Could be. However, the prices have always moved in clumps due to the limitations of the bulk price uploader.

Whoa! You're right. I just saw one card go from $58 to $245.

Looks like a total reboot of some sort.

I've already bought all I wanted from him during the sale, so I'm not upset on my behalf, but unless this is some kind of glitch I am indeed questioning his integrity and am worried that this will hurt the reputation of the site which effects all of the sellers there.

In his ad, he states these two things very clearly:

- The price will decrease 1% each day until all the cards are sold or become 1% on December 24th.

- No offers will be accepted during this time.

So unless he went back on what was posted in the ad, there is no way that all the cards were sold yet still in his account.

This ad probably introduced a lot of new buyers to COMC, which is a good thing, but when they go there hoping to take part in this sale up till the 24th, and the sale ends with thousands of cards left unsold but repriced to full book, its going to make checkoutmycards look really bad. And these new buyers might not even realize that COMC staff or other sellers have nothing to do with this. It will damage the reputation of the site within the hobby, and people that feel like they were slighted by a business are very vocal in spreading the word. This does nothing but bad things for the health of the site in the immediate future.

I'm still holding out hope that this was just a glitch and not a well publicized bait and switch for COMC and its reputation in the hobby.

I more or less agree with you. Really odd that we haven't gotten any kind of statement yet regardless.

Has anyone tried calling or emailing either Dan or COMC regarding this issue yet?

So...a perfectly good explanation.

Yet again people assume the worst without knowing the facts. Go figure.

Good for him! I hope he got a good price and that it was the largest transaction in COMC history.

Meanwhile, if you've got a big pile of credit that you're itching to spend, you could always make a 50% offer on one of my cards. Or, apparently, the whole port.

Sweet. If this is true, I got really really close to the total sale price of his port from his contest. I'd love that box of topps chrome. Either way, I bought a ton of stuff, and was very happy with his prices.

I agree, it was an awesome sale.

I hope I didn't upset anybody too much by frantically grabbing as much as I could before the bulk editor updated the prices to 100%.

Glad to see the sale is back on and that he didn't go against his advertised sale by accepting a port offer. Or perhaps he did but thought better of it because of the backlash. Either way, I'm happy to see he is honoring the advertised sale under the terms that he set.

Or maybe the port buyer was not good for the $50,000 or so it would have taken to buy the port.

Unfortunately, this is the only window — and the sale ceases a week shy of its last potential ending date".

...it doesn't sound like anyone bought out his entire port.

I did not end it. I received a phone call from COMC letting me know that the port was being bought. The buyer of the port knows that it will take a few hours to get cards off the site and accepted that.

I know that COMC is happy to see it end as apparently it added quite a bit more stress to the site than any of us anticipated. I had expected more sales earlier, not a massive dash for cards at exactly 10%. Also, never knew that the bulk editor wouldn't let me price cards at under 10% of BV. Also, didn't know that to reprice my port would take about 10 man hours each day (had my staff at work helping me).

Thanks to all of you who supported the site and the sale. Unlike the first attempted port sale which was going remove all the cards from the site, I am told that this sale will leave the cards at COMC, so if there was something you really wanted, it should show back up.

However, if you didn't buy it at 92% off, you can't have wanted it that badly.

I'm curious to know if a COMC owner/employee bought your port Dan.

Do you know, or can you tell us?

By the way...thank you for all the wonderful deals! I was looking at having a lot more fun tonight and over the next few days buying thousands of more cards, but oh well. It was fun while it lasted.

Wow, COMC must have been overloaded.

Btw, are you allowed to reveal to the total sale price for today? Im assuming this directly would be the highest $amount of cards purchased in one day, for our guesses.
