While some chase down bargain priced TVs, computers and video gaming systems, collectors want something else. Truth be told, collectibles shouldn't be immune from the biggest shopping weekend of the year. We've once again tracked down some Black Friday sports memorabilia specials offered through our partners over the next few days. Some sales actually begin before Black Friday.
COMC.com has had one of the most successful Black Friday/Cyber Monday promotions in the hobby over the last several years. Thousands of sellers have listed nearly 10 million items on the site and many will be running promotions through early next week.
COMC is giving away $10,000 in shopping sprees to use over the weekend. On Black Friday alone, COMC will be giving out about 200 shopping sprees ranging from $20-$200. Everyone who has bought or sold cards on the site since last Thanksgiving will be eligible to win one. To find out if you won, log into your account on Black Friday. Other contests and giveaways are also planned on their Facebook page.
Thursday through Monday, buy ten or more cards and shipping is free. For every 100 items shipped in November, receive $5 in store credit on CyberMonday. Free shipping only applies to items purchased in Simplified Shipping Mode. Anything purchased in Advanced Reseller Mode is only eligible for a $3 savings.
They’ll be in the office on Saturday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. to answer questions via email or phone.
