Amazon has announced the new Sports Collectibles Store offering more than two million unique collectibles from major sports leagues and sporting events. Serious collectors and sports fans alike will discover a broad selection from official licensees of the National Football League, Major League Baseball, National Basketball Association, National Hockey League and International Federation of Association Football.
Amazon customers can browse collectible items by item type, sport, year, team and price to find everything from trading cards and ticket stubs to game-used jerseys and autographed sports gear. For many products, the store displays the authentication source and condition rating from leading authentication service providers like Professional Sports Authenticator (PSA), James Spence Authentication (JSA) and Beckett Grading Services (BGS).
“Our customers have told us that when purchasing sports collectibles they highly value authenticity, which is why we have teamed with some of the top sports collectibles sellers in the world to provide unique items with easy to find authentication and condition information,” said Peter Faricy, vice president of Amazon Marketplace. “The emphasis on authenticated selection, combined with our A-to-z Guarantee protection on purchases, allows customers to shop the new store with confidence.”
“This is a big deal for us and our customers because Amazon provides a great opportunity for Icons to reach millions of soccer fans in an easy way and serve them with high quality, unique, genuinely hand-signed items,” said Dan Jamieson, CEO of Icons, official licensee of FIFA. “We have a history of providing customers with authentic jerseys, cleats and photos signed by the world’s most iconic players, and we’re excited about expanding this tradition and reaching millions of potential new customers through Amazon.”
