PSA EDITORIAL

The Skinny
Like many baseball fans, PSA President Joe Orlando didn't want to believe that any of today's home run heroes could be cheaters. But recent revelations of steroid use in the MLB and the sudden appearance of "skinny" players have forced him to admit that he was wrong. Click here to read his thoughts on the issue.

PSA Q & A

Question: Is the 1960 Fleer Ted Williams considered a "playing days" card?

Answer: Yes but, unfortunately, it is treated like a commemorative issue. Technically, it should enjoy much more demand but collectors have never treated this card like a card made during a playing career. While it is certainly not one of Ted's toughest cards, it is certainly a card made during his playing career and deserves more respect.
