PSA adds autograph grading to slabbing & authentication options

2012-panini-immcult-coll-125-jimmy-butler-patch-autograph-psa-dna-dual-grade-28Dec2015Collectors who submit certified autograph cards to PSA in the future will notice something extra noted on their slabs now if they opt for an added feature from the grading and authentication company.

It’s a grade noting the quality of the autograph.

“PSA has long been in a unique position since we offer the top certification brands in both PSA trading card grading and PSA/DNA autograph authentication,” said PSA President Joe Orlando. “For years, we have provided card and autograph grading services in separate fashion, but now those services can be provided in one complete package.”

“Since the individual grades are noted on the label for both the autograph and the card, collectors can now use the item for either the PSA or PSA/DNA Set Registry, which is now home to well over 100,000 collections,” Orlando said. “In terms of sheer size and participation, no other registry in our hobby comes close.”
