The reasons why a collector can choose us as a certification service
...because it uses a scientific and specific method for high quality services. Our team has developed an innovative certification system, with rigorous procedures, measurable parameters, a mathematical algorithm designed to offer absolutely objective qualitative evaluations in the specific field of collectible playing cards.
... it is the cheapest and fairest on the market, it offers the base service at the lowest possible price, it reduces greatly shipping costs, and above all it makes the certification accessible at a fixed price, independent of the declared value of the card!
we simplified the procedure of requesting a certification as much as possible by making it accessible to everyone, even for one single card
we are the fastest in processing and shipping times, including base service, and compared to overseas bodies, we make you save whole weeks with shipments within Europe.
Close and available both by mail and phone, for any questions or problems contacting us is easy
Our covers are perfectly adapted to the size of the cards and stickers, the card does not move even a tenth of a millimeter, we do not need to use internal sleeves to immobilize the cards and the result is aesthetically perfect.
Anyone who chooses to use our integrated courier booking service and subscribes to insurance is 100% guaranteed because courier insurance is not used (which does not recognize collectibles because they are not insurable). Ours is private insurance made on purpose with 100% coverage guarantee
If an object is signed, our authentication service is carried out thanks to a partnership with an official association recognized at European level (Associazione Italiana Autografi).
We have developed a system to reward our customers who earn points in every order that allow them to redeem rewards or discount codes
After many requests from our audience we have implemented half-votes in the certification with vote service
To meet the wishes of the most demanding collectors on an aesthetic level, we have developed the ability to certify objects with different types of labels and we have created an order page that allows the user to choose the label they prefer.
In January 2022 we introduced the possibility of certifying stickers as well, and soon it will be possible to certify other collectible items as well.
We have also satisfied the many collectors who delight with custom, artistic or personalized cards because with the Infinity Protection service it is possible to encapsulate any card, even if not authentic, deciding which label to use and what to write on the label.
For collectors who love statistics, we have implemented an advanced card register that allows you not only to view data and graphs but also to download statistics and save your favorite searches.
To encourage collectors' ability to sell their certified cards with us, we have created a showcase section where it is possible to put a card on sale and manage communications relating to the negotiation of each card.
