Matchball Authenticated was formed by businessmen and sports fans who identified an opportunity for the international sports industry , its followers and participants to utilize technology to identify and permanently record unique items of sports memorabilia for fans worldwide.
Legends Registry is a service offered to notable athletes where, utilizing the same technology as applied to Matchball Authenticated items, they can have their personal memorabilia collection labeled and registered in the Matchball database.
Although Matchball itself cannot independently verify the information related to Legends Registry items, each athlete/owner is required to personally attest in writing to the description, history and significance of every item registered. The athlete/owner may then choose to offer those items for sale, as gifts to charities, or simply retain them, knowing that their significance is electronically recorded and physically attached to the item wherever it goes. For more information please click HERE for the Legends Registry site.
