Beckett Media has been the voice of the collectibles industry from the time Dr. James Beckett published his first Sport Americana Baseball Card Price Guide book in 1979 to the launch of the first issue of Beckett Baseball magazine five years later. In the 30 years since that rather simplistic first issue of Beckett Baseball, the magazine – and the company itself – has grown in significant proportions, similar to the very field it covers.
Under the guidance of Dr. Beckett, the company mastered the print medium, expanded Price Guide titles to other sports and other genres, introduced web commerce as a viable means of trade and instituted Grading as an important segment of the company portfolio.
Now, on the 30th Anniversary of that first magazine launch, Beckett Media stands poised to continue the foundation first laid down by Dr. Beckett – one of integrity, commitment and accuracy. In doing so, Beckett Media will proudly move the Beckett brand forward through an exciting future, all the while continuing to serve its current customers and attracting a new generation of collectors. Most importantly, Beckett Media will maintain the trust and excellence the company was built upon.
