There is some sort of value of being a top seller with inventory or top seller listing fresh inventory. I am always clicking on the top sellers I do business with or guys with new inventory listed. As stupid as it sounds there is some value there.

It's one of the rankings for finding cards on sale.

Back in the day, when the mob (me included) was often attacking (rightfully so or not) in these threads, he never joined in. He was actually quite the opposite.

If anyone really wants to find out go through his old posts. He’s mentioned before about being on some of those top ten lists before. Top ten consigned or top ten buyers, I don’t know. One of those. I bet he is one of the bigger sellers/buyers.

Yes, he’s always been a COMC defender.

Just funny how anyone feels like they are a somebody and someone is a nobody when you don’t even know which accounts they run.

I just don't get the calling out other people for their practices...they do their thing, you do yours. Especially when you're unwilling to submit yourself to scrutiny.

If someone spends 200 bucks to "artificially inflate their port" ahead of yours and then brags about it.... then perhaps the call out was deserved.

Bbbahahaha, that would be AMAZING if you do so and he is left holding the bag with yet another negative on his eBay account.

Still, he is rreeaallyyyy living on the edge here but maybe has studied your account that you are always running a sale (I personally have no idea if that is true) or that he has done business with you before and knows you would accept an offer.

Except, you're on to his entire plan.

Other peoples perceptions should not sway you from learning lol

To those that answered - Thank you. I rarely browse sales or run them so wondered the significance and attacks towards others based on it.

I personally think SRP is useless and should be done away with. It really screws me up when pricing and having to "click again to save" 30 cent cards that have a $5 SRP. But that's just me.

The call-out wasn't really my issue - it's more of the idea that he's unwilling to subject his port to the same scrutiny. These guys are the competition, I get that...it just doesn't sit well with me that he's willing to bad mouth others but won't take any heat.

I have no dog in the SRP Battle raging right now so I will ask if COMC has posted Black Friday Promotions yet? Last year they had a sale the week before Thanksgiving.

100% percent on this. He called me out saying my prices are over inflated, Saying that I have a Tony Gwynn psa 9 priced at $30 and he would charge $12 IF he had it. My reponse to him was my buying and selling numbers are a lot bigger than his. He is coming off as a troll not telling anybody who he is.
I HOPE he is a quality comc user. The more we get the better the site is. A majority of the users are hopefully looking at the long term success.

What if I spent the $200 to draw further attention to the absurdity of SRP which has been my consistent platform for months?

I know who this guy is. I give him credit for what he has done on comc. He does have a decent inventory. The issue I have is that he is quick to talk but will not open himself up for a criticism back. I wish him the best.

I'll be getting a decent chunk of 2018 chrome cards together over the weekend to send in with the current year select service. Deadline for it to be to COMC is apparently 11/13, so I really need to have it in the mail by tomorrow night

Hopefully it boosts my port a bit and I can turn some stuff I've got hanging around the apartment into cash flow

Please spend the $200 at my Tigers1984WS COMC Port. My kids need shoes.

There won't be a pre-Black Friday sale like there was last year. That being said, expect to hear from us soon on all fronts regarding Black Friday - Cyber Monday weekend.
