(Newport Beach, California) - PSA/DNA Authentication Services, the world's largest, independent third-party autograph authentication company, has certified the more than 7,500 signatures offered in the Upper Deck Company's latest release, Prominent Cuts. To accommodate collectors a special Prominent Cuts category is being created in the popular PSA/DNA Autograph Set RegistrySM.

"The signatures in this extensive autograph collection series include some of the greatest entertainers, athletes and historical figures of the 20th century, and each was certified genuine by PSA/DNA," said Joe Orlando, President of PSA/DNA, a division of Collectors Universe, Inc. (NASDAQ: CLCT). "The Upper Deck Prominent Cuts is an exciting product that will give collectors an easy opportunity to own an assortment of great signatures, all with the assurance of PSA/DNA authentication."

The Upper Deck Prominent Cuts product is now available from many hobby retailers.

"The base set consists of 60 regular cards of sports icons, celebrities and political figures. In addition to premium-sized swatches of Hollywood memorabilia, each box of Upper Deck Prominent Cuts will have a combination of three autographs or cut signatures from some of the greatest stars of film, literature, art, politics, sports and mixed-martial arts," said Grant Sandground, product manager for Upper Deck.

Subjects included in the set are MMA fighters, basketball stars, actors and political figures. Hollywood Memorabilia inserts will include swatches of costumes worn by premier actors and actresses on film.

PSA Authenticated rare signature pieces from entertainment icons, both living and deceased. The checklist reads like a "who's who" of Hollywood. Presidents like Ronald Reagan and Barack Obama will also be included. Rare Dual and Quad Cut cards will feature either two or four signatures of two superstars on one card.

Lucky buyers may find coupons from PSA/DNA in the Prominent Cuts boxes that are good for either one free submission for certification and grading of a sport or non-sport card or autograph valued under $500, or to get a sixth item authenticated and graded free when five others are submitted at the same time.

"This will make it even easier for collectors to have their signature cards graded and then register their Upper Deck Prominent Cuts collection online in the PSA/DNA Set Registry," said Orlando.
