Like MtG? Sports Cards? Comics?

1


1 for fulfilling my request - Virtual OK - Posted Dec 19

I'm opening a web e-commerce business in the sportscards; memorabilia, collectible trading cards (non-sports), gaming and comic arena. This store has a physical brick and mortar location as well - it's been in existence for decades. This allows me to get exclusives from the manufacturers (like Wizards of the Coast for Magic the Gathering, or for Topps, Upper Deck, etc.).

I would like to build a mailing/email list for exclusive access to different offerings on the website for those who are already buying these types of things online.

Eventually, I will have an exclusive service which uses push notifications to alert you when your favorite items are ready at the shop to ensure you get the best price and get some before they sell out. Imagine getting the newest editions of cards days before your friends because you are subscribed to our push notification service!

The website will focus on live case/box breaking; live drafting; live interactive discussions with technology that I've been developing over the years to do just this. The cool thing about these types of group buys, is that you pay only a small entrance fee, for a potentially large outcome.

Here's an example: if you are a person looking for baseball cards from famous New York Yankees, and the newest collectible comes out with a good set of NYY exclusives, you can pay to be the only person who gets the cards from the box/case that are New York Yankees team players. The cost is MUCH less than trying your luck opening a box or case yourself. Other might choose the Angels, Dodgers, Indians, Cubs, etc. You get all from your team slot. This is a great way to get 1/1 or other super rare insert cards without having to rely only on luck. The odds are in your favor because more packs are being opened that grant you access, but your cost basis is much lower.

Essentially you get what you want, for a reasonable price without the luck factor you'd have to have to get them yourself. It allows you to get more bang for your buck.

For Magic the Gathering players, Yu-gi-oh, Pokemon, Lord of the Rings, Star Wars, etc. you can do drafts live, as they happen, to ensure you are getting the stuff you want with a chance at rare/powerful cards. All is documented in live streaming and a record of the event is available after the fact. We take the guessing out of the draft.

After the event we send you cards in protectors fresh from the pack; insured etc.

More than that, we open a lot of card packs and get access to a ton of cool one of a kind collectibles that you cannot find anywhere. Period. We sell these at discounted rates and you can combine rewards and coupons to score an even better deal.

1/1 , 1 of 5, 1/25 etc. on cards that are amazing. All sports; all brands.

My partners and I have been in the hobby cards industry for more than 30 years and I promise you there is not going to be anything like this on the internet once we get rolling. (I'm building the website as we speak) We will even have a way for you to get free credit to spend at the e-commerce store by interacting with the site and helping us to grow our online footprint; or by introducing your friends to us.

If this is interesting to you: let me know... you'll score a simbi and a review and you'll get access to a great mailing list.
