Differentiators

Like the $1B resale market for coveted sneakers, 

Okay, there are  few analogies you can point at, the best bet is going to be finding niche sites who do this same thing. The model you're doing is not dissimilar from eBay or Amazon, where there they work with major distributors, but also let smaller guys set up shop (closer to eBay in that regard, if you consider direct sales). Your main differentiator is the product discovery is targeted towards record buyers. So what you want to do is find other niche commerce services that do the same thing but for other underservced market sectors
