Shaffer Announces Departure from Ace Authentic

Victor Shaffer has resigned as CEO of tennis collectibles manufacturer Ace Authentic and has sold his interest in the company. Shaffer announced the move Friday.

Shaffer purchased controlling interest in the company in 2007. Ace Authentic was born out of the dissolution of NetPro, which produced tennis trading cards in 1991 and 2003. Shaffer, along with partner John Reichel, bought the company from NetPro founder Chris Carey.

In the two years since Shaffer was with Ace Authentic, the company focused on offering autographed tennis memorabilia. Its most recent offering, Hidden Signatures, featured an autographed tennis ball in each $49 box.

After working for Pro Set, Shaffer co-founded Press Pass in 1992. After selling his stake in that company, Shaffer worked for Mounted Memories.
