Card Grading & Authentication

Card Grading & Authentication

PSA provides expert analysis and protection for your collectibles. Using state-of-the-art, proprietary methods, the hobby's most astute and knowledgeable grading experts render carefully considered, unbiased third-party opinions of grade. Every card or collectible graded by PSA uses the PSA 10-point grading scale, which has been accepted and supported industry-wide since 1991. This tested standard ensures a level of consistency that is unsurpassed in the hobby.

PSA Crossover Service: PSA accepts crossover submissions on cards that have previously been graded by other services. By crossing over to PSA grading, you know you've done everything possible to maximize the value of your collection. To take advantage of this service, log on to our website, click on "Submission Center" then "Print Submission Form" and select the Crossover option. State the minimum PSA grade you will accept, and send your card to PSA in its current holder. If the card meets or exceeds the criteria for the minimum grade you've indicated, your card will be removed from its current holder, assigned its PSA grade and placed into a new PSA holder.
