Trading card insurance

Who's the best insurer out there? I need to insure a collection worth about $100k in PSA slabbed cards. Do you try to combine with homeowners insurance or separate it out? All suggestions are welcome. I appreciate it!

    I think you list it out and have it attached to the homeowners. They provide money for personal property within the Ho insurance.

    Work hard and you will succeed!!

    Our homeowners (Nationwide) will not insure baseball cards. I"ve tried a couple times. I don't know if that's based on location or the fact they're cards.

    I don't think you can call it cards, but it's covered under other personal property of the house and if you identify it, they will cover some of it (not sure what happens if it's gets over a certain number). but you have to have it cataloged and maybe have pics.

    Collectinsure, (CIS) which is specifically designed for collectibles and cards. Don't rely on homeowner's insurance~you will be very disappointed.

    I do have tenants insurance from Liberty Mutual for (I think) $20K...but I don't think it'd be nearly enough. True I don't have any one thing or few things especially valuable but I built my collections over this past near quarter century and that really adds up. Not to mention the sentimental value and things I could never really replace (like me and my late wife's diplomas)
