PSA authenticates both sports and non-sports trading cards across all eras.
A series of PSA graders review your cards for authenticity. If genuine, PSA looks for evidence of doctoring, such as re-coloring or trimming.
If your cards pass these two steps, PSA grades the condition of each card on a scale of 1-10, with 10 being best.
After grading, PSA holders each card in its own tamper-evident case. A label within the case displays the card's pertinent information and unique certification number.
PSA encapsulates every card in a tamper-evident, sonically-sealed case. These attractive, hard plastic cases provide protection from pressure and most damage.
Once encased, you can rest assured that your cards will remain secure from further wear. Note that the case will not protect your cards from extraordinary events like fires and floods.
Plus, the PSA Financial Guarantee of Grade & Authenticity applies to all PSA encapsulated cards.
Cards submitted at the Regular and Economy service level that are 6.25" x 8.25" up to 8.5" x 11" in size will require a Jumbo holder and incur an additional charge of $30. View PSA's current holder sizes to see all the holder sizes available.
