"Once our company dominates the marketplace in these niche categories, we plan to expand into other vertical markets, like books, CDs, DVDs, and other collectibles," says CEO Eric Beckerman, who notes that eBay began by listing only PEZ dispensers in September 1995.
Two years ago, Beckerman and Pecsok were talking about the amazing success of eBay and how it has dominated market share with such an inefficient business model, the auction.

Meanwhile, Eric Beckerman grew up in Brentwood but attended Palisades High and was an All-League third baseman on the team that lost in the '85 City championship game at Dodger Stadium.He played baseball for the University of Wisconsin and, in 1990, founded Golden State Promotions, which has become the second largest collectibles show promoter in the United States and was the forerunner of NAXCOM.He has lived in the Palisades since 1991.
NAXCOM recently opened a Series B Round looking to raise $1.5 million at .28 cents per share ($3 million valuation).The company has already received $500,000 in commitments and will close the round by the end of July."We figure we may need one more round after this to get to profitability, but with the amount of items being listed on the Exchange, and once we begin a marketing campaign, who knows, we may not need an additional round," Beckerman says.
If the company succeeds, then perhaps NAXCOM (www.NAXCOM.com) may consider changing the company name to 'Palibay.'

Eric Beckerman, president of NAXCOM, has been promoting card shows for more than a decade, but he admits there were some butterflies in his stomach in the days prior to the company's first Sports Faire Tour event in Kansas City.
However, Beckerman said those jitters were put to rest thanks to a successful show last weekend that accomplished many of the company's goals for its newest venture.
"We were a little nervous going in, but it couldn't have gone any better," said Beckerman.
...
"The focus was making sure customers had cheap tickets and had more to spend with our dealers," Beckerman said."All dealers said they were happy with our service, the local media coverage and the dealer dinners."
NAXCOM will expand its Sports Faire Tour lineup next year, with events scheduled for Kansas City in March, Denver in May and San Jose in August.Beckerman said other cities might be added to the schedule, but admits the show market remains challenging.
"We've been promoting shows since 1989, and this is by far the most challenging year we've ever come across," he said.
