Amazon has just launched a new specialty store on its site for memorabilia from various entertainment industries - music, movies, and TV.
It's called the Amazon Entertainment Collectibles Store, and it features over 350,000 "unique and rare" collectibles - all authenticated. We're talking records, instruments, playbills, photos, clothing, etc. The new store is browsable by category, autograph status, and year.
“Entertainment Collectibles is an exciting new category offering a vast selection of past and present Movie, Music and TV memorabilia,” said Peter Faricy, vice president of Amazon Marketplace. “There is something for everyone. Fans will find keepsake items from their favorite artists, actors and icons of entertainment, and aficionados will discover some of the rarest items for their collections. With hundreds of thousands of items, the store has a wide range of memorabilia to delight any entertainment enthusiast.”
Amazon says that you can find plenty of verified collectibles from big name people and projects like The Beatles, Elvis Presley, Taylor Swift, Justin Bieber, One Direction, Marilyn Monroe, James Dean, Johnny Depp, “Star Wars,” “Star Trek,” “The Walking Dead,” “The Hobbit,” “Game of Thrones,” and “The Twilight Saga.”
In February of 2012, Amazon launched a similar destination for sports memorabilia just in time for the Super Bowl called the Sports Collectibles & Memorabilia store. We can't help but notice that the timing of this entertainment collectibles store coincides with Oscar week.
