Question: I have an autographed card that I would like to submit to PSA but I am debating between the Red label and Blue label service. What should I do?
Answer: This is a very good question and certainly not easy to answer because there are a lot of factors that come into play. For example, if the card is of little value or is in bad condition, the Blue label service seems to be a more appealing option. The reason for that is you still get the benefit of the holder, serial number, etc. but - if the autograph is relatively strong - you can still achieve a decent grade under the autograph grading service. In other words, if the card is a "2" but the autograph is an "8", the presentation is more appealing with the higher grade on the label.
