Ebay and COMC, which stands for Check Out My Collectibles, have entered a commercial agreement that includes an investment by Ebay in the trading card hobby marketplace. COMC employs nearly 300 people and has 200,000 square feet of distribution space to support its deep catalog and fulfillment capabilities.
Recently Ebay has been sharpening its focus on enthusiasts, and in July 2023 the retailer opened its trading card vault to external submissions of high-end items that had not been purchased directly on its marketplace.
“As the ecommerce home for trading card enthusiasts, we’re excited to work with a company that shares our commitment to innovating for collectors and sellers, so they can do more of what they love,” said Gene Cook, VP of Global Collectibles at Ebay in a statement.
“COMC was created to reimagine the collecting experience for trading card enthusiasts by using technology and innovation to remove the greatest pain points, allowing fellow collectors to focus on what they enjoy,” said Tim Getsch, CEO and Co-founder of COMC in a statement. “We are excited to utilize Ebay’s investment to accelerate our pace of innovation, improving the experience for our customers, employees and partners.”
