PlayerPawn is poised to become the most agile and authentic fan experience in the fragmented market of sports memorabilia, traditionally plagued by high costs, questionable authenticity and outdated distribution.
PlayerPawn is for players, their teams, and the fans who love them. It's the real deal, the real story, with collectibles technology that will change our definition of "memorabilia"...forever.
What the Players & Teams Pawn
Things they wear
Things they swing, kick or catch
Things they practice in, and on
Things they dress up in
Things that are meaningful
Things they ride, things they drive
Things that make them laugh
Things that do not come from a warehouse
Junk : )
Bikes, bats and balls
Everything they touch, wear or choose to sign
They even pawn fan experiences with them
PlayerPawn puts the fan and the players on the same field for the first time ever
