For Collectors Of Sports Memorabilia
There is something about sports memorabilia that takes us back; the first hot dog at the park, watching our sports hero or experiencing a live sporting event. It is that “first” which started it all – your Collecting Journey. It doesn’t matter if you grew up in small town or big city America, you well know the thrill of sports. What do you have in your collection? From a 1938 Brooklyn Dodgers baseball signed by Babe Ruth on its ‘sweet’ spot to a 1986 Fleer 57 Michael Jordan basketball trading card, the list is endless.
We understand your commitment to preserving these priceless pieces of sporting history. That’s why we designed a sports collector’s insurance program to meet the needs of devoted collectors like you.

Why specialty insurance for your valued items? Typically, many homeowners’ and renters’ policies don’t provide adequate coverage to appropriately cover the full value of a collection, protect newly purchased item or items in-transit.
In the event of a loss, the difference in payouts between a homeowner’s and specialty product is often dramatically different because homeowners’ policies base their payouts on the documented purchase price of an item or offer an actual cash value policy (cost of repair or replace minus depreciation). However, a given item could have been purchased with the goal of amassing a valuable collection that appreciates over time. Prized items like these need to be properly insured.
