PSA SecureScan

PSA now offers a cost-free "SecureScan" service to orders seeking Super Express level service or higher. This new imaging feature involves taking front and back scans of higher-end, PSA-encapsulated items with high-resolution scanners and making those images available on the PSA website.

PSA is imaging the collectibles (cards, ticket and packs) and uploading them to its online Certification Verification site for recording purposes. The free service provides collectors with high-quality images to use on the PSA Set Registry, for marketing opportunities and for their personal records including insurance purposes.
