The PSA Set Registry "Matching" Program recently launched as an innovative new program to assist its members in building their PSA Set Registry sets. This program matches the Registry members' sets with what an auction company or dealer is offering at auction or for retail sale. Collectors have been enthusiastic about this program since the beginning and the next featured auction is from Legacy Sports Rarities which closes January 29.

"Our goal is to offer the PSA Set Registry "Matching" Program as an invaluable service to assist loyal set registrants in building their collections. Not only will this service help collectors, it can also help consignors achieve higher prices realized with participating sellers. There is nothing that the Set Registry member needs to do other than be a participant in our PSA Set Registry program. The entire program is confidential. A registrant's personal information is not disclosed to the dealer. If the member decides to contact the dealer or bid on the item(s) in auction, it is entirely the member's option. PSA will not disclose the hobbyist's identity to the dealer. We are merely notifying them of what is available to help them complete their set/s," explained BJ Searls, PSA Set Registry Manager.

The PSA Set Registry is the largest and most recognized program in the hobby with over 60,000 sets registered. New collections are added every day. "As the registry continues to grow and more hobbyists assemble unique, high-quality collections, the competition for choice cards and memorabilia can be difficult. And hobbyists may find themselves too busy to monitor the number of auctions and inventories offered. We are continuing this "Matching" program in conjunction with Legacy Sports Rarities next auction which closes January 29th. Legacy is one of the industry's top auction companies offering several quality auctions each year," said Joe Orlando, President of PSA.

Headlining their auction, Legacy is offering several PSA Registry sets that came from a single owner who spent years putting these together. You will find a tremendous group of legendary Hall-of-Famer issues along with a nice selection of Pre-War and Post-War cards including a 1911 Diamond Gum Pins Napoleon Lajoie (PSA 7), 1911 Diamond Gum Pins Christy Mathewson (PSA 8), 1912 T207 Brown Background Walter Johnson (PSA 7), 1932 US Caramel #1 Eddie Collins (PSA 8), 1952 Topps #312 Jackie Robinson (PSA 8), 1953 Topps #82 Mickey Mantle (PSA 8), and more. Also offered are several high-grade, low-pop 1938 Horrors of War and 1940 Superman cards. Plus a nice group of rare 1973 Topps Pin-Ups test issues, including Johnny Bench (PSA 8), Steve Carlton (PSA 8), Harmon Killebrew (PSA 8), Willie McCovey (PSA 9), Gaylord Perry (PSA 8), Nolan Ryan (PSA 8), Tom Seaver (PSA 8), and Willie Stargell (PSA 8). The selection and quality of cards in this auction are superb.

Greg Bussineau, President of Legacy Sports Rarities says, "We are excited to be able to partner with PSA in this Set Registry "Matching" program. We believe using a program like this offers an outstanding opportunity for us to assist Set Registry members in building high quality sets."

If you are looking to fill some missing "puzzle pieces", you may find yourself receiving an e-mail directly from PSA alerting you to any PSA-graded cards or graded memorabilia you've been looking for that will be offered in Legacy's next auction.
