Beckett Collectibles is the latest sports collectibles company to add a secure storage vault to its line of collector and customer services.
Beckett announced the launch of its Beckett Vault on Thursday. It joins partner PWCC Marketplace, Collectors/PSA and eBay as sports collectible companies that have launched a vault service in the past two years.
The Becket Vault offers secure storage for collectibles in a climate-controlled, insured facility protected by 24-hour security. Items stored in the vault can be viewed anywhere from a mobile device with hi-res images of cards, comics or memorabilia available instantly.
“The Beckett Vault is the union of our company’s best virtues: a passion for collectibles, a focus on trust and integrity, and our vision for what this industry can become,” Beckett CEO Kunal Chopra said in a press release. “Collectors will be able to submit items to the vault, safeguard them in a state-of-the-art facility and, in time, seamlessly transact on our platform. This is the future of the industry, and we’re proud to be pioneering it. Come Vault with us.”
The Beckett Vault features biometric access control, water- and fire-proof storage and 24/7 monitoring by security experts. Its inaugural collection includes more than $3 million worth of collectibles.
The vault will launch with zero storage fees. Vault customers will soon be able to buy and sell collectibles instantly via a Beckett Marketplace. Once an item is bought or sold the ownership title will be immediately transferred via blockchain technology.
The Beckett Vault is open and accepting submissions and will occupy a portion of Beckett’s new, 100,000-square-foot facility in Plano, Texas.
