My latest COMC shipment has been sitting idly in the box it came in for the better part of a week and a half. Maybe this weekend will be the grand cataloguing process, maybe not. I'm happy with the cards I added to my collection, but my relationship with COMC has been going downhill for a while now.
The site was a great resource for lower end cards when I joined in 2010 or 2011. But then again, submission fees were only $.10 and shipping was $.15. I could buy a card for $.50, with there still being enough meat on the bone for the seller to be happy. Inflation, cost of doing business, yada yada yada. You can argue whether the increases in cost are justified or not. But at the end of the day, a card submitted now that sells for $.50 is basically the seller making a charitable donation to my account after the (at least) $.25 submission fee and the $.25 shipping fee. And quite honestly, those cards I happily scooped up for $.35 or $.50 cents are far, far less attractive at $.75 or $1.
