The Blackest of all Fridays

It's Black Friday.

COMC orders of 20+ cards ship free this holiday weekend, not to mention tons of cards on sale. I've been loading up my inventory for a couple months now. Proud of my patience! This is shaping up to be my biggest order from them ever. Can finally ship that shit and complete my 1971 Topps set plus lots of other various stuff I've snagged.

I'm also checking out Dave & Adam's deals to maybe put a couple high-end boxes on my xmas list (I already snagged a few [more] real cheap 2014 Panini Prizm Perennial Draft hobby boxes). Blowout Cards and Steel City Collectibles also seem to be good retailers for buying boxes. Anything else of note I forgot, feel free to mention in the comments.

Anyways, good luck out there!


  1. Hm, my inner Sith Kermie got to me in a big way. I was gonna pick up a couple super cheapie boxes regardless, but I ended up adding two others near the upper end of my usual price tolerance to the order as well, instead of just blowing it all on COMC singles like I was originally planning. I sorta blame COMC marketplace itself for tipping me away from it though, because the ever increasing trend toward incremental price drops over the course of the weekend annoys the crap outta me. *shrugs*

  2. I picked up a few boxes on DA... but I avoided the higher end stuff. The main thing I bought from them was a Greg Maddux signed ball and a San Jose Earthquakes jersey. As for COMC, I picked up a bunch of memorabilia cards for my player PC's and a few cards for bloggers... but overall I wasn't too impressed with their seller's sales.

  3. I hope you'll blog about some of the cards you bought on COMC. How many cards were in your order?

    1. 84 cards! Yeah, I'll definitely get a few posts out of the order.
