Amazon Launches Collectibles Division

Amazon Launches Collectibles Division

Amazon has launched a Collectibles Division as a safe and secure alternative to eBay and is only allowing listings in this category from vendors that have been through a careful screening process. Because of our impeccable reputation, Amazon has reached out to Collector's Shangri-La to join other respected memorabilia dealers like University Archives, La Scala Autographs, and The Prop Store to be its first partners on this platform.

We are in the process of slowly adding our inventory to this alternative platform, and our Amazon storefront can be found at www.amazon.com/shops/collectorsshangrila.

I already found this beauty, Kevin.

I've been warned that there are currently some fakes in the Amazon Collectibles category. If you spot any, let Amazon know so they can pull down fraudulent sellers. It's my understanding that they've already kicked some folks to the curb. Thanks!

It is a forgery.

As far as I can tell, the fake Mickey Mantle baseball isn't listed as part of Amazon's new collectibles category. I did alert them to it though.

Kevin, below is a link to more garbage I found on Amazon.

Hopefully, they police it better...   here is one from your listings that has me puzzled.  Even though u are a UACC RD I find myself puzzled why the print being listed doesn't have the signatures of Roy & Dale on it along with a copy of Roy Jr.s COA.   I even blew it up to 400x and still couldn't find them.  Since I have a couple of authentic ones (and after lengthy dicussions created a thread on secretarial or just plain forgeries) I prefer to see the signatures and supporting information.

Thanks for the feedback. I'll take a better photo of this print that shows the autographs and get it online as soon as possible. When I initially uploaded it into my inventory - because I was pressed for time - I used the image that my source already had online (the Roy Rogers and Dale Evans Museum) . I never got around to replacing it.

This is a bit better:

I too was invited by Amazon. Looking forward to getting it all setup soon.

There are forgeries all over Amazon right now but not as bad as other sites. They tell me by end of August anyone selling collectibles (not just autographs) that is not invited to the new category will be removed. The new category is what they call 'gated' and you can't list unless pre-approved.

I'm assuming there will be some bumps along the way and it won't be perfect but I bet it will be a lot better than ebay.

I also pointed out a suspect dealer in the new category to my rep. He said he is looking into it. They do seem to move slow.

I posted a discussion on July 25 asking if anyone had ever heard of La Scala Autographs because I was considering purchasing something from them.  Perhaps you can answer that question since they are part of Amazon’s new Collectibles Division.  Thanks in advance.
