Beckett Business Solutions and eBay open the 2014 Industry Summit


LAS VEGAS – Beckett Business Solutions and eBay opened the 2014 Las Vegas Industry Summit by showing off their newly formed partnership with a ribbon cutting ceremony.

Beckett Business Solutions is a new company to help dealers sell their inventory on eBay, collaborating in a way the online auction company hasn’t done before with sports collectibles. Beckett Business Solutions will utilize Beckett’s comprehensive database, card values and incorporate a massive image repository.

“I felt like eBay was doing a very good job selling vintage cards, graded cards, but we are trying to update our website and give people better quality images, and get more inventory on the site,” said eBay’s Austin Vance, category lead for sports memorabilia. “EBay wants to be the place where people could find any card they are looking for and we weren’t doing that.”

Rob Veres runs Beckett Business Solutions. He’s a longtime dealer from Burbank Sports Cards. His industry knowledge helped create a tool that many high-volume dealers could use to sell their sports cards at a pace never seen before.

“We have hundreds of millions of potential collectors in sports fans globally out there that we are not interacting with right now,” said Veres, Vice President of Beckett Business Solutions. “Manufacturers provide us with amazing products, but amazing products alone can’t sell the cards. We as an industry need to work closer together to ensure we can get these products out to the people.

“Two things that are going to do that are technology and eyeballs. With Beckett Business Solutions, we believe we are bringing both to the counter because we partner with eBay to make listing on eBay far more seamless and profitable for everybody.”

    No offense, but the partnership benefits description is very vague. I work in IT focused on HPC and the term “technology” describes nothing. With due respect to what Rob Veres has accomplished at Burbank, static images like the ones Burbank uses on ebay does little to improve the experience for collectors. I don’t see how this helps sellers either, unless one wanted to position itself as a commodity dealer for commodity collectors. I only see this as a way for Beckett to get its Marketplace sellers more exposure with very little if any technology flowing out to eBay.

    Prove me wrong, post this comment and provide a rebuttal w concrete examples of the supposed technology that will dramatically improve processes.
