CGC and Mascot have announced a partnership that will enable collectors using the grading service to immediately place their newly graded items for sale on a variety of platforms.
The move is aimed at helping “enhance secondary market liquidity options,” according to the two companies.
Collectors and dealers will be able to list their cards on eBay, MySlabs and Shopify through Mascot, which also has partnerships with TikTok Shop, Veriswap, MyCardPost and ComicConnect, and says it plans to also integrate those channels in the near future.
Mascot builds itself as “an emerging digital solution for collectors seeking to streamline grading, inventorying, and selling of collectible assets.”
Through Mascot, collectors can instantly upload and manage their collections and list them on multiple marketplaces simultaneously. The company plans to offer grading submission services in 2024.
“We have long admired CGC’s commitment to innovation and technology-enabled solutions to reduce friction and expand participation within their collectibles categories,” stated Ezra Levine, CEO of Mascot. “Through this partnership, collectors can add items straight from CGC’s grading room to Mascot, and list them for resale on multiple reputable marketplaces with ease, speed, and convenience — all through Mascot. This will create one of the industry’s easiest ‘grade, manage, sell’ journeys.”
Steven Eichenbaum, CEO of Certified Collectibles Group, parent company of CGC, says the collaboration “will benefit collectors, as it streamlines inventory management and makes transactions quicker and easier.”
