(Newport Beach, California) – PSA TicketFacts™, a new information resource about sporting events tickets, has been launched as part of PSA CollectibleFacts™, the unparalleled, free online reference for collectibles and memorabilia. This is now the fourth sports collectibles category to be added since this valuable service for collectors and dealers was started by PSA two years ago.
The first section of the new PSA TicketFacts that is now online at www.psacard.com/ticketfacts offers historical information including summaries of each game, a price guide and images of Super Bowl tickets dating back to the first game in 1967.
"Super Bowl tickets are probably the most popular theme in the hobby of ticket collecting," explained Joe Orlando, President of Professional Sports Authenticator, which launched the free, popular and continually expanding PSA CollectibleFacts website in 2012.
"While there are some definite rarities in the series, it is possible to complete an entire Super Bowl run from beginning to end. We thought it would be appropriate at this time of the year to roll out the sports ticket section of PSA CollectibleFacts with an initial focus on football's 'big game' and an entire run of Super Bowl tickets. In the coming year we'll be adding much more information about historic and collectible tickets for many kinds of sports events," said Orlando.
The tickets section of PSA CollectibleFacts will be categorized by sport, such as baseball, football, basketball, soccer and golf, and by particular event, such as World Series, All-Star game, Super Bowl and Masters Tournament.
In addition to the new tickets section, PSA CollectibleFacts offers PSA CardFacts™, devoted to all types of trading cards; PSA ProBatFacts™ with information and images about dozens of major league baseball players and their professional model bats; and PSA AutographFacts™ with information and hundreds of images of autographs of sports, entertainment and historical figures as well as biographies of the signers.
"We've literally added thousands of images in the past year, and the feedback we've received from collectors and dealers about PSA CollectibleFacts has been great. People enjoy it because it brings together all the popular areas of our websites: prices guides, historical information and clear, sharp images," said Orlando.
"The website continues to evolve and grow."
Since its founding in 1991, Professional Sports Authenticator experts have examined and certified over 20 million different sports, entertainment and historical collectibles with a combined total value of over $1 billion.
