The waiting game …

When you send a high-dollar card off after a sale, there is always a short period of uncertainty where the card is no longer in your possession and has not arrived at its destination.

You’ve essentially trusted complete strangers to be your go-between in moving this asset from your collection to someone else’s.

Those days of transit are often uncomfortable. While it’s been a few months since my last big single card sale, I have sent several packages to COMC in recent months.

One recently had a stack of Zion Williamson cards, some of which I’ve already sold since I asked for premium service. And most recently I sent more than 1,200 cards, the vast majority of which are autos and relics I once held in high regard.

For three days I waited, and last night I received a series of emails from COMC confirming their arrival. I can now breathe.

The items are now in separate batches in my queue, and now looking at my COMC dashboard I feel very accomplished. There are more than 2,000 cards at COMC awaiting formal processing. These are cards I haven’t enjoyed for years, and most hadn’t really seen the light of day in just as long.

I realize the processing fees will eventually start to be deducted and there will inevitably be a moment of question whether or not I’ve made the right decision. But I know I’ve done the right thing, especially since I have more than enough funds already on the COMC site to cover these costs. It may not truly be “free money” since these are cards I once purchased, but the feeling is similar to some extent.

The cool thing is I still have in my possession all of the items I have attachment to. The HOF rookies and tobacco dating back to t206 era, the legend autographs and relics, the graded cards I enjoy showing my son and others.

Less is actually more sometimes.
