The Sports Memorabilia Industry

The Problem:


With a global collectible market valued at over $230 billion annually, the demand for sports-related items is incredibly high.  However, the industry grapples with ongoing challenges concerning the authentication of these items, with estimates suggesting that 50-80% are counterfeit, according to the FBI. The absence of transparency in the provenance of sports collectibles poses a significant hurdle for collectors, making it challenging for them to place trust in their purchases and casting mistrust within the market overall. In an environment where the authenticity of collectibles remains uncertain, the industry is confronted with a substantial challenge in definitively verifying and validating the provenance of sports memorabilia.

The Solution:


An easy to use app that creates a fully functional digital equivalent of any new or used sports memorabilia containing attributes that can be transparently validated to provide provenance to anyone.  Sportafi's platform ensures that every item's history and journey are transparently recorded, allowing buyers to verify the origin and ownership of their memorabilia. Sportafi addresses the uncertainty surrounding collectible authenticity, offering indisputable proof of legitimacy and thereby making counterfeiting and fraudulent claims nearly impossible. This fosters a more transparent and truthful collectibles industry, benefiting collectors, athletes, sports leagues, teams, authentication agencies, collectible manufacturers, and fans.

Sportafi is the innovative solution to the industry's counterfeit problem, championing "truth" over trust.
