Plano-based collectibles industry leader Beckett announced Monday that it has completed its acquisition of New York-based NoXX Technologies. The startup’s CEO and Founder Scott Roskind will join Beckett as its chief visionary officer. Noxx, a “collector-first platform” founded in 2020, offers asset management and community connection with advanced technology.
“Our goal is to provide THE social identity for collectors,” as NoXX puts it. The startup offers discovery in a “fragmented industry” and helps collectors get insights from their assets.
“The acquisition of NoXX is one more important step in our creation of the industry’s digital leading platform,” Beckett CEO Kunal Chopra said in a statement. “We want to build a central location to connect collectors and give them every tool they need—and the NOXX Technologies’ product suite as well as its talent will help us do that.”
The company said that NoXX’s technology will be integrated into Beckett Collect, the industry’s first all-in-one platform that allows collectors to easily and dynamically add cards, manage and analyze their collection, discover new assets, and create connections with other like-minded individuals.
“This is an ideal match, between two incredible teams,” Roskind said. “We’ll unite the technology we’ve built to help collectors collect, showcase, discover, and connect—and we’ll do it all with the most storied brand in the industry.”
Roskind brings more than 20 years of experience in sports, technology, and entrepreneurial ventures including companies and organizations such as LinkShare Corp., MarquisJet, The National Basketball Retired Players Association, and The New York Knicks.
Founded in 1979 by Dr. James Beckett, an American statistician, author, editor, and publisher as a pricing guide for classic American sports cards, Beckett has expanded into several other collectible categories with its signature pricing guidance, grading services, and print and digital tools for enthusiasts and professionals in the hobby. Beckett said that its long history makes the company uniquely positioned to become the world’s premier alternative assets platform.
It said that by investing heavily in new digital, subscription, and blockchain technologies, as well as in new verticals and expert talent, Beckett continues its commitment to help collectors value, safeguard, and trade their unique possessions.
