PFC TV: the new online channel collectors have been waiting for
From the $30m Bugatti Type 57 car to Henry VIII... Learn all about them here on our new video channel
At Paul Fraser Collectibles, we've gone from appearing on television - on Reuters' channel, last month - to making it. This week marks the launch of our new PFC TV channel, bringing the global collectibles markets to you like never before.
There are currently 200m serious collectors in the world, with this figure set to double by 2050. In other words, these are exciting times for the global collectibles markets; and what's needed is a channel like no other to show it.
You can see our various videos, including Paul's Reuters interview, fascinating mini documentaries on the Penny Black stamp and King Henry VIII collectibles, and other interviews by following this link.
But perhaps the best place to start is our video on the 10 Top Reasons Why You Should Invest In Collectibles (above).
From this year's World Record sale of the $30m Bugatti Type 57 car to the $69m Qing Dynasty vase found in someone's attic - it's all featured in our video, along with details of how you as a collector and alternative investor personally stand to benefit.
