Should your PSA-graded set composite not be listed in the Set Registry, please submit a request form. Set composites for company sets and key cards sets are generally loaded a first-come-first-serve basis and can take from 4-6 weeks before the set goes online. However, if you provide weighting for your requested set, priority will be given to that set. You will not be notified that we have received your request, but it will appear on the list below within several days after you have submitted it. You will be notified when your set composite is online.
If you are requesting a team year set, such as 1963 Topps New York Yankees set, we ask that you also provide a checklist for the set which can include league leader cards, team cards, World Series cards, checklists, 1974-1994 Topps Traded, 1995-2004 Topps Traded and Rookies, 2005 Topps Updates & Highlights (traded players #UH1-84 and rookies #UH221-310), 2006 Topps Updates & Highlights (cards #U1-170), and 2007 Topps Updates & Highlights (rookie cards only). 1973 through 1982 Topps Team Checklists cards can be included in the corresponding team sets. 1973 & 1974 fronts have signatures of each team member and the backs have the team checklist, but no picture. From 1975-1981 the title of the card is "Topps Team Checklist Sheets" and these have the team pictured. World Series cards must have players from the team set pictured.
We define team sets as follows:
The team set consists of cards from one year from a single company that depict, on the cards, players from that team in that team's uniform who were players during that year. Exceptions: If a player was traded during the year and is pictured in another uniform but is still listed as part of the team in question on the face of the card, that card will be allowed. Conversely, a card which pictures a player in the proper uniform but is labeled on the face of the card as being part of another team, will not be part of the set.
In general, player sets consist of cards for that player which were manufactured during the player's play years. Exceptions: Many companies produce cards for players the year after the player has retired. These cards, with or without stats, issued the year following retirement are meant to depict the player’s previous season. In addition, there are a few vintage sets that may list one or two cards well past the play years. These cards are allowed due to their extreme popularity. For example, in the Babe Ruth Basic Set, the 1948 Leaf is listed even though Ruth retired in 1935. Player sets in the miscellaneous sports and non-sports categories may include post-retirement dated cards due to limited availability of play years cards.
Basic Player Sets:
Cards in basic sets include only the most popularly issued manufacturers and are closed for updates. Basic sets do not include cards from Parallel Sets, Insert Sets, or Parallel/Inserts Sets. Special cards and league leader cards are not included.

Basic & Collector Issues Player Sets:
These sets, for modern players (post-1971), include all cards defined as a "Main Set" cards (promos, prototypes and test sets excluded), but do not include cards from Parallel Sets, Insert Sets, or Parallel/Inserts Sets. Special cards and league leader cards are not included.
Master Player Sets:
All cards, with the exception of unique or very limited edition cards, are accepted in the Master player sets. If a player is featured on a team set card, it will be allowed. Cards which may feature a player in the background but make no mention of the player on the card are not allowed. In addition, some handcut/panel/perforated issues may only be used in one slot and may not be required in multiple slots. If you are uncertain that your card qualifies, please email email@example.com for confirmation.
Note there are a few sets which PSA does not grade, but authenticates only. Cards from the following sets will be added to the player sets as optional and will not be required: 1967 Topps Test Discs, 1968 Topps Discs, 1970 Topps Super Square Cornered Proof - Blank Back. This list may be updated in the future.
Player sets have evolved since they were first introduced in the PSA Set Registry. Therefore, there may be some inconsistencies. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org with any changes you feel should be made.
Player Card Requests to Established Sets:
Player set compositions, especially for modern basic sets and all master sets, are constantly expanding as new cards are graded by PSA. If you have a card that does not yet appear in a player set, you may request that it be added to the set. Cards which are considered print errors and are not established variations, will be added as either/or to the base card. Beginning January 1, 2007, pins will also be included in the player sets.
Card requests submitted before May 1st every year will be added to the set before the awards deadline. Cards submitted during May will be added after the awards deadline.
To request an addition to a player set, please login to My Set Registry and view the set in My Sets. There you will find a link called "Report a cert that should match this composite." From this link you can make your request.
HOF and Key Card Sets:
Additions to the HOF and Key Card sets are possible. Every year new HOF inductions are made. In addition, some players may have performed well enough in recent years to warrant addition to All-Time sets. In some cases only one card will qualify for addition to the set. In some cases, several cards may qualify and members participating in the set will be polled for their opinion. The majority vote will determine which card is added. If less than 50% of the members polled respond, then experts at PSA will select the card for addition. If the set requires rookie cards, only the cards which are recognized as official rookie cards for the player will be accepted. A list of these cards can be found in the Ultimate Rookie Card Encyclopedia. In the rookie sets, multiple cards may be accepted for each player. In the case in which a HOFer does not have a rookie and or popular/mainstream issue card, this player will not be included in the HOF Team and Key Card sets which require a specific card. HOF sets that allow any card for a particular player will be updated as new inductions are made and brought to our attention.
Each item within a set is assigned a weight based on the value of the item in NM-MT condition. Most sets are broken down using a 1-10 scale, with 10 being the greatest weight. Some sets feature ultra-rare items. Those items will command a much higher weighting according to their relative rarity. If the set is very small with little variation in individual item prices, then the scale may be 1-5. For more information on weighting and how sets are ranked, visit the RULES page.
