NAXCOM.com announced today that it is changing the name of its online sports collectibles marketplace to SportsBuy.com (http://www.sportsbuy.com). The company is a leader in the sports collectibles business.
"The name change complements our position as the largest dedicated exchange for sports collectibles. This is just the first step in a complete overhaul of our company's online presence," said SportsBuy.com's new CEO Wesley Hein.

The company will retain NAXCOM Exchange, Inc. as its corporate name and continues to operate ThePit.com, which was acquired from Topps, Inc. in 2006.
The company has released several large news stories over the past couple of months including the appointment of a new CEO, the repurchase of a majority of the company's stock back from Landmark Communications (owner of The Weather Channel), the rollout of the Express Lister bulk upload system and a record-breaking sales quarter.
