Signd Launches in Time for the Holidays; Creating the Ultimate Memorabilia Experience for Sports and Entertainment Fans

--News Direct--

Signd, the ultimate memorabilia experience platform, has launched today in time for the 2021 holiday season. The company is the first to bring together personalized messages and officially signed memorabilia from the world’s leading athletes and entertainers (Icons). Signd has raised the bar on the fan experience and within the $5.4 memorabilia market, by offering recipients a once-in-a-lifetime customized autograph, paired with a personal video experience from a list of hundreds of notable sports, music and entertainment Icons. Icons sign and send these gifts directly to customers, skipping the middleman, to ensure authenticity and create the perfect memory. Fans can begin creating orders with Icons immediately at

“Signd was created because we saw a clear gap in how fans and Icons interacted, and I believed there had to be a way to close it. If Icons cannot get to their fans, why not bring the fan to the Icon?” said, Howard Margolies, Signd CEO and Founder. “Providing fans with personalized memorabilia and a custom video message from their favorite Icon is priceless. The memorabilia, the video and the memory will last forever! With Signd, we’ve taken gift giving to an entirely new experiential level.”

In addition to the official launch, Signd announced an important strategic partnership with NFL Alumni Ventures. The NFL Alumni Association is one of the oldest and most respected retired players organizations focused on creating unique opportunities for NFL players in their post-playing lives. As part of the partnership, Signd will work with NFL Alumni Ventures to offer its platform to NFLA’s roster of former players, allowing fans the most direct access to their favorite NFL legends and heroes.

“One of the strongest and passionate relationships exists between a player and a fan, and professional football has one of the most rabid and loyal fan bases on the planet,” said Craig Richardson, Managing Director of NFL Alumni Ventures. “When a player retires, the relationship between the player and the fan can become fragmented as the player isn’t as visible anymore. Our partnership with Signd allows our athlete members to stay directly connected with their fan bases and create a deeper and more sustainable relationship moving forward.”

Signd’s list of ever-expanding Icons includes: two-time Super Bowl Champion and Super Bowl XXV MVP NFL Ottis Anderson, two-time Super Bowl Champion turned broadcaster Mark May, seven-time NBA champion Robert Horry, five-time NBA All-Star Chris Mullin, four-time WNBA Champion and all-time great Sheryl Swoopes, America’s Got Talent magician sensation Oz Pearlman and Wu-Tang Clan member Ghostface Killah. A full list of Icons can be found on Signd’s website at

“Many of the fans I meet ask if they can have a football, jersey or some type of memorabilia, because they never can get enough of their favorite players and want something they can hold onto forever,” said Signd Icon and NFL legend Ottis Anderson. “I love this company and am proud to be part of it because Signd allows me to give a personalized message to my fans and a signed gift that they will never forget.”

Signd is the first entrant in the $5.4B memorabilia market to deliver a platform for personalized gift memorabilia with video from your favorite Icons. Icons receive memorabilia to sign for direct delivery to the recipient, and unlike elsewhere in the memorabilia market, where forgeries run rampant, Signd delivers videos of authenticity. Recipients simply find the QR code that comes in the packaging, scan and enjoy their personal message from their Icon; the QR code makes it easy to revisit the video and share with friends and family.
