Once encased, you can rest assured that your cards will remain intact, barring an extraordinary event such as flood or fire.

Can I send my free submissions the same day I sign up for Collectors Club?
No, unfortunately you must wait for your membership welcome kit to arrive via mail. This will ensure you that you have been added to our database and you have the necessary instructions and materials to send in your cards for processing.
Do I get instant access to anything after I sign up?
Yes! As a PSA Collectors Club Members, you will receive instant access to PSA's Monthly Specials, including discounted pricing on submissions. Also, you will receive instant access to the PSA Collectors Club Submission form - a form specially designed for PSA club members.
Can I submit the free submissions at different times?
In order to use the free grading voucher, you must submit all cards (six or fifteen, respectively) at one time. You have the duration of your membership to submit the Collectors Club free submissions so be sure to refer to the expiration date printed on your voucher. Also, keep in mind that your voucher entitles your cards to a seven-business-day turnaround (approximate). Maximum value per card allowed is $499 and T3s, tickets and autographed cards cannot be submitted using the voucher.
How does the grading process work and how many graders see my card?
When card grading submissions are received by PSA we organize them by their service level, assign an anonymous order number, and then they are placed in a queue to be graded. A minimum of 2 graders will grade each card. Some cards will require more graders for a variety of reasons. Cards are graded on a 10 point scale that is recognized industry-wide.
