Collectors, the parent company of PSA, is adding a Collectors Vault to its myriad of services, giving trading card enthusiasts an opportunity to get cards graded and stored with the same company.
Collectors, which also owns the Goldin Co. auction house, joins PWCC Marketplace, Beckett and eBay as collectible companies that provide vault service.
The all-in-one service will allow collectors to get cards graded by PSA, transferred to a secure storage vault, and then buy and sell all through one platform through the Goldin marketplace. Items purchased through Goldin can also be quickly submitted to the Collectors Vault for storage.
The Collectors Vault features 24/7 armed guards on duty every day as well as Class 3 torch and tool-rated UL vault doors and cutting-edge seismic motion detectors. Given the vault’s Delaware location, collectors will not have to pay tax on orders shipped and stored in the facility.
Additionally, all collectibles stored in the vault will be fully insured at no-cost and with no fees or payments, regardless of their value.
“There’s no one-size-fits-all collector and everyone has slightly different motivations,” said Collectors CEO Nat Turner. “Some people want to build collections over years that have deep personal meaning while others are looking for the agility to time the market and quickly buy, sell and trade items.
“Hobbyists trust Collectors because we’re collectors ourselves and have decades of authentication experience. Our vault will change the way people collect by connecting our leading PSA, PCGS, and WATA services directly to Goldin's liquid marketplace, all through the Collectors.com platform.”
The Collectors Vault is open to graded cards valued at more than $100. It will be accepting graded cards for storage at the National Sports Collectors Convention iin Atlantic City July 27-31. Attendees can visit the Collectors booth (#2030) or PSA booth (#5005) to submit orders or receive more information.
In addition to the vault, Collectors is also launching several other new products, including:
• Collectors ID: A single sign-on and password for PSA, Goldin, Collectors Vault and PCGS.
• My Collection: Customers can manage their entire inventory of graded cards in a single location. Collectors can add graded cards to their inventory by simply scanning their graded cards QR code with their device or searching based on certification number.
• Collectors Estimate: Collectors will provide customers with information about buying, selling and trading their items with access to real-time estimated values.
