(Santa Ana, CA) - The Certified Coin Exchange (CCE), one of the world’s largest and most active online marketplaces devoted exclusively to certified collectibles, is expanding to include PSA-certified sports and non-sports trading cards.
CCE is launching the Sports Card Marketplace as part of its popular Collectors Corner services (www.CollectorsCorner.com). Beginning May 6, the Sports Card Marketplace portion of the web site will be devoted exclusively to the sales of cards certified by Professional Sports Authenticator (PSA).
“Card collectors will be able to view, select and buy tens of thousands of PSA-certified sports and other trading cards offered by many of the top dealers. Because of the number of dealers and collectors potentially involved, this new service is expected to significantly boost activity in the sports card market,” said Cassi East, CCE President. Both CCE and PSA are divisions of Collectors Universe, Inc. (NASDAQ: CLCT).
CCE is the world’s largest, online dealer-to-dealer numismatic network with more than 450 dealers trading over 37,000 items in the electronic marketplace with a combined value in excess of $64 million. The Collectors Corner services were launched in March 2007 to permit collectors to buy directly from dealers who list their inventory online. PSA-certified sports and non-sports cards now are being added under the new Sports Card Marketplace.
“Dealers can simply enter online an asking price for a PSA-graded card and the associated PSA certification number located on the encapsulation holder insert. All the information about the card being offered for sale then is automatically uploaded electronically from the extensive PSA card database,” explained East.
“We anticipate adding more features and functions to the web site in the near future to provide even more services for collectors and dealers of PSA products. Based on our previous experience in other collectibles markets, we expect hundreds of dealers to offer tens of thousands of sports cards with no additional fees or charges to the buyer other than normal shipping expenses.”
PSA (www.psacard.com) is the world’s largest sports and trading card authentication and grading certification company.
