Derek Jeter bolstered his business portfolio on Thursday with the launch of Arena Club – a sports card collecting platform that hopes to serve as a "bridge" between the long-lasting sports card collecting hobby and the up-and-coming world of digital sports collectibles.
Jeter teamed up with Brian Lee, an avid sports card collector and the co-founder and president of LegalZoom.com and has been the managing partner of BAM Ventures since 2017. The two co-founders showcased their product at Yankee Stadium on Thursday afternoon.
With Arena Club, collectors can buy, sell and trade their cards on the company’s marketplace. The company is also offering card grading and vowed to be "quicker, more accurate and transparent."
Collectors can have their cards graded, slabbed and have it sent back to them, or the collector can have the company hold onto the raw card and in turn have it replaced with a digital card which the user can then put up in their "showroom."
