It's Fun! It's Easy! It's FREE!

The FREE, interactive PSA Set Registry program has revolutionized trading card and ticket collecting around the world. Established in 2001, the PSA Set Registry now hosts nearly 150,000 sets. In addition to the major sports' categories like baseball, basketball, football and hockey, it offers categories in miscellaneous sports and non-sports.

Home to the world's finest trading card and ticket collections, the PSA Set Registry gives collectors the opportunity to safely show off their PSA-graded items in a secure online environment and compare their collections to some of the greatest ever assembled. You can start with just one card or ticket and build your set over time or add an entire collection. You can post images of your items, view those of other collectors in your area of interest and go from there!

Plus, members of the Set Registry have access to the Collectors.com Shop Button, an incredible search tool that makes finding cards easier than ever. The Shop Button saves you time by bringing card listings to you, all within an organized and filterable interface. This means you can search every conceivable venue for the card you need – before someone else finds it – in just a few clicks.

How the PSA Set Registry Works

To begin, just sign up here. There is no software to download, and everything you do is done securely over the Internet. The PSA Set Registry is exclusively for PSA-graded cards and tickets, so you will need the certification numbers of the items you intend to register. (For more information about how to get your collectibles certified, click here.)

Once you have added your cards or tickets, you are ready to begin building sets based on your inventory. You will find step-by-step instructions to help you build your first set.

You can remain completely anonymous in the PSA Set Registry if you so choose. You can name your sets how you wish, and you can even elect to keep your set closed from public view until you are ready to unveil your collection.

The PSA Set Registry enables you to track your inventory, costs and populations, build and update sets, enjoy friendly competition, meet other collectors who share common interests, create a photo album of your collection, and share your sets with others. In addition, you can perform "What If?" scenarios to see how the addition of new items will change your set ratings.

Sets listed in the PSA Set Registry as "Current" are active sets and are ranked in order of the set rating. The Registry is highly interactive, and sets are continually being added and upgraded. Sets listed in the "All-Time Finest" area may include retired sets that were complete at one time but have since been dispersed. These are some of the finest collections ever assembled and provide benchmarks to which you can compare your own collection.

Benefits of PSA Set Registration

As if the fun you'll have participating in the PSA Set Registry is not enough, you will also receive other important benefits:

  • Recognition for your collection. If your set is in the top five "All-Time Finest," your collection (and your name, if you desire) will be listed in the PSA Set Registry at the top of the list of all sets in that category.
  • Free submissions. We recognize that not every card and ticket in every important collection has been graded by PSA. To encourage participation in the PSA Set Registry program, we offer free grading submissions to registrants. Depending on the size of your collection, you can receive up to three free submissions.
  • Selling on Collectors.com. PSA Set Registry members have exclusive privileges on Collectors.com, the source for all your collecting needs.

To recognize those All-Time Finest sets, we will be inducting a number of all-time great sets into the PSA Set Registry Hall of Fame every year. Hall of Fame collections and the contest winners will be selected based on a vote by sports card experts.
