Super Bowl rings, MLB Gold Glove Awards and World Series trophies are some of the most collectible – and rarest – memorabilia items on the market.
PSA/DNA certifies these items and other types of rings, trophies and awards using a process very similar to our other authentication services.
Along with covert synthetic DNA tagging, your authenticated collectible will receive a Letter of Authenticity notating important characteristics, like the award type, the stones used in the championship ring, or the athlete for whom it was originally made.
This added provenance will boost your item’s credibility and liquidity.
PSA/DNA is the leading authentication service for championship rings, trophies and awards, providing a much needed service in the hobby. PSA/DNA uses the same state of the art technology for autographs to protect your rings, trophies, and awards. Once an item is deemed genuine, the item is marked with invisible DNA-laced ink – naked to the eye but verifiable through a specially calibrated infrared laser. In addition, a Letter of Authenticity (LOA) containing a photo of your item and specific details on the analysis will accompany your item. With our unique alphanumeric number, any interested party can verify authenticity online even as items change hands time-after-time.
