Classic Combination – Collecting Signed Baseball Hall of Famer Rookie Cards
One of the hottest areas of the market are PSA-certified, autographed cards. More specifically, signed rookie cards of Hall of Famers are becoming more and more popular. When it comes to many vintage examples, the supply is very limited. In the next article, we delve deeper into this emerging market, one that combines the appeal of baseball cards with autographs.

A Collector’s Perspective – You Either Have Character or You Don’t
In today’s world, we know just about everything an athlete does on and off the field, whether it’s good or bad. For collectors, it can be a dangerous game since it only takes one scandal to derail their career and diminish the value of your items. In the following piece, PSA’s Joe Orlando discusses the issue of character as it relates to those who we collect and those who we buy our collectibles from.

Collecting 1953-1955 Stahl-Meyer Baseball Cards – "Frankly" Three of the Hobby’s Top Regional Food Sets
During the 1950s, there were several extremely popular regional issues produced in the baseball card world. From the 1952-1955 Red Man Tobacco series to the 1954 Wilson Franks set to the 1954 Red Heart dog food issue, baseball cards were linked to all kinds of products. One of the toughest is the 1953-1955 Stahl-Meyer series. In the upcoming piece, we talk to collectors about this desirable set, filled with inherent condition obstacles.
