Amazon.com, Inc. (NASDAQ: AMZN) today announced the new Sports Collectibles Store (www.amazon.com/sportscollectibles) offering more than two million unique collectibles from major sports leagues and sporting events.

New Arrivals from Puma at shoes.com  Amazon customers can browse sports collectibles 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 Authenticat or (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.”

  1. I like that Amazon has made sure that the memorabilia being sold has been authenticated. I’ve never wanted to deal with sport memorabilia because of all the fakes out there. I think that Amazon has one upped eBay with this.
