Newport Beach, CA) – First PSA gave collectors a chance to win autographed sports memorabilia — including baseballs, bats and jerseys — with their popular “Monthly Memorabilia” sweepstakes. Now the hobby’s number one authentication and grading company is taking collectors on a yearlong quest to win classic trading card prizes.

From November 1, 2016 through October 31, 2017, Professional Sports Authenticator (www.PSAcard.com) is presenting the “Classic Cardboard” sweepstakes, the latest chapter in the company’s monthly sweepstakes series.  This latest sweepstakes is free to enter and offers baseball, football, basketball, hockey and non-sports trading cards. All cards come courtesy of Baseball Card Roadshows (www.baseballcardroadshows.com).  

“Thanks to Baseball Card Roadshows, we were able to assemble 12 classic cards that collectors will love. These cards have an average value of $100 and feature some of the biggest names in the hobby, from Mickey Mantle to Luke Skywalker,” said PSA President Joe Orlando.

Each month, collectors who enter the Classic Cardboard sweepstakes will have the chance to win one of the following PSA-graded trading cards:
