PSA Set to Make a Splash at the 2017 NSCC
The National is almost here. As usual, PSA will be offering an array of on-site services along with all kinds of cool collector promotions and giveaways. This includes the ability to create your own baseball card and have it encapsulated by PSA while you wait. The best part is it’s absolutely free!

Why It’s Important to Ask Why
The hobby is changing all the time. This includes the way collectors view certain collectibles and process new information as it comes to light. In the following editorial, PSA’s Joe Orlando explains why it’s important for collectors to ask why and not just accept the way things were before.

The Love and Lore of Legendary Lumber – A Preview of Joe Orlando’s New Book, Legendary Lumber: The Top 100 Player Bats in Baseball History
Imagine holding in your hands a bat once swung by the great Babe Ruth or Roberto Clemente. Legendary Lumber, a new book authored by Joe Orlando along with Tom and Ellen Zappala, dives into the subject with stunning visuals. In the following interview, we dig deeper into the professional model bat market and the release of this tribute to an iconic piece of baseball equipment.
