Beckett has become the latest entity to offer a vault option for trading cards.
The Dallas area company announced Thursday that had opened its vault inside its new 100,000+ square-foot Beckett facility in Plano, TX.
The Vault offers biometric access control, water- and fire-proof storage, and 24/7 security monitoring. Beckett says the facility already holds over $3 million worth of collectibles.
At least for now, there are no storage fees and, in time, Vault customers will be able to buy and sell collectibles instantly via the Beckett Marketplace. Once an item is bought or sold the ownership title is immediately transferred via blockchain technology.
Beckett will offer high-resolution images of cards, comics or memorabilia users send to the vault.
“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,” said Beckett CEO Kunal Chopra. “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.”
eBay, PSA, Alt and Goldin are among the other hobby entities that have launched vault platforms this year.
