SportsMemorabilia.com, a leading online source for sports collectibles and authentic autographed sports memorabilia, is celebrating ten years in the business this year. Since going online in 1996, SportsMemorabilia.com has established itself as a streamlined, easy, one-stop shopping experience for gift givers and enthusiasts alike. http://www.SportsMemorabilia.com’s vast catalog of items covers the spectrum of professional sports — from teams to individual athletes. Additionally, by staying abreast of current sports headlines, they are able to offer the hottest collectibles on the market with timely updates.
“I think this is an incredibly exciting time to be involved in the sports memorabilia industry,” says Jesse Stein, CEO of SportsMemorabilia.com. “There’s some amazing athletes out there delivering the kind of performances no one’s seen before, and that’s great for the industry. I know sports collectibles have gotten a lot of bad press from forgers and phony online auctions, but we’re confident that, between consumer education and the efforts of athletes and sports memorabilia companies like Steiner Sports, we can make sports collecting a thrilling hobby again.”
http://www.SportsMemorabilia.com is partnered with Steiner Sports, the largest and most trustworthy sports memorabilia company in the United States. Steiner brings their reputation for quality and authenticity to SportsMemorabilia.com. Every item shipped by SportsMemorabilia.com goes through Steiner’s strict authentication process: First it is witnessed by a third party representative present at the actual athlete signing. The piece of sports memorabilia in question is entered into the Steiner inventory, while the athlete and the witness both sign an affidavit detailing the signing and every item signed at the session. If the collectible is judged to be Steiner quality, it receives a tamper-proof hologram that is unique and individually numbered. Finally, the item receives its certificate of authenticity, after which it is sealed until delivery to the lucky collector.
