Upper Deck, the collectibles company known for its entertainment trading cards, launched Collect Forever, what it believes is the largest direct-to-consumer collectibles distribution platform. Collect Forever is an outlet that fans can use to purchase, store, and trade every type of collectible.
Upper Deck President Jason Masherah announced the launch of the platform at Comic-Con International: San Diego (SDCC).
Prefer to read your collectibles? Comic books purchased through Collect Forever will arrive in a tamper-proof PETG case. Additionally, the comics will include a label that displays the comic book title, cover artist, writer, and a QR code that directs to a website that provides more information about the collectible. Collect Forever will also give collectors the opportunity to receive rare comic book variant covers by purchasing any eligible comic marked with “potential variant.”
To celebrate the launch of Collect Forever, the platform will be releasing an exclusive Michael Jordan Funko Pop! The collectible will feature Jordan wearing a red Chicago Bulls jersey with the No. 12 and no last name on the back. The 4.25-inch figure will include a unique QR code and identification number.
Collect Forever debuts six years after the release of e-Pack, Upper Deck’s online platform allowed collectors to purchase, open, collect, and trade digital and physical trading cards, anytime and anywhere —- instantly. Through e-Pack fans could view an entire collection and sort and store it digitally, creating less need for physical storage space. Collect Forever is integrated into e-Pack seamlessly, allowing ePack’s users to link directly with Collect Forever to purchase, store, and trade collectibles, cards, and comics.
