Graded autographed baseballs are a popular category for serious baseball collectors. How is a graded baseball different from a graded collectible?
In addition to the autograph being graded, the condition of the baseball itself is also graded.
9 - Signature
Examination of The Autograph
First the autograph on the baseball is examined for authenticity and then issued a grade from 1 to 10 based upon the quality of the signature.
10 - Baseball
Examination of The Baseball
The ball is then examined and an overall grade for the ball (excluding the autograph) is issued from 1 to 10 based upon the quality of the baseball.
9.5 - Overall
A third grade is assigned and is based upon the average of the grade, the autograph and the grade of the baseball.
As shown above, your autographed baseball will be issued three separate grades. A Certificate or Letter of Authenticity, which includes the unique serial number as well as the grade information, is issued with all autographed baseballs authenticated and graded.
Special Note: Single-signed baseballs submitted under this full-grading service are eligible for any Single-Signed Baseball category on the PSA/DNA Set Registry. However, single-signed baseballs submitted under our general Autograph Grading service for an autograph grade only do not qualify.
To determine the price of your single-signed item or multi-signed item, search for the autograph signer below. Then copy the submission fee and paste into the PDF submission form.
Package Your Item(s) for Shipment
Place your collectible in a box large enough to prevent content shifting and damage.
Protect the items with packing material such as bubble wrap or other shipping/packing material.
Please use a tube box for bats.
All items must be removed from the frame before submission to PSA/DNA.
Items that weigh over 30 lbs. are not accepted.
Items in Holders or Shrinkwrap
Holders or shrink-wrap on items will be removed for examination by PSA’s authenticators. Unfortunately, we do not have the ability to wrap items again, so the item will be placed in its original packaging or box without shrink wrap. However, in the event that the item does not have a holder, PSA/DNA will provide a protective Plexiglass holder for you at no additional charge. This feature is available for baseballs, cuts, and photographs (3x5, 5x7, 8x10).
