The goal is always preservation:
Authenticity: preserving brand provenance.
Trading cards: preserving (y)our stories.
Grading & staging: preserving the product.

And as a deal broker, I aim to ensure everything finds its way into the right hands.

The culture

I know. Fakes and replicas have become almost indistinguishable from the real thing, but they're missing the most important aspect: brand provenance.

I've personally authenticated more than 35,000 pairs of shoes, virtually and physically. If you need help determining the legitimacy of a pair of sneakers, reach out. If I can't do it, I can find the person who can.

The stories

The trading card. A perfectly-sized physical artifact that can tell any story you want to tell. There's a reason they've been around for more than 100 years.

If you're looking to tell a story through trading cards, take a look at some of our past projects over at 1 To Stock collectibles.

The product

This was the genesis of The Sneaker Savant: how do we properly honor the products we hold so dear? Is it by leaving them in our closet for future generations? Or is it by giving them a place on your mantlepiece?

I'll honor your prized pairs like they're mine.

The right hands

Stumbled upon a rare pair you're looking to get rid of?

I'll find the perfect buyer.
