Collectors Universe Inc. has entered into a marketing agreement with eBay drop-off store franchise QuikDrop International. QuikDrop customers now can automatically have their sports cards and sports memorabilia, autographs, and rare coins and stamps authenticated by Collectors Universe experts prior to posting them for sale on eBay.

QuikDrop is an eBay drop-off store franchise with eight facilities in five states. Collectors Universe, based in Santa Ana, California, is the world’s largest third-party authentication and grading service for collectibles.

"Sellers find they get more money for their collectibles if they are authenticated," said Murray Mead, Chief Executive Officer of QuikDrop International. Sellers pay for authentication fees, which are listed on Collectors Universe Web site.
