As we reported earlier this month, PSA has opened up its Population Report to the masses for the first time. The company has now announced that it is also makings its monthly online SMR Online Price Guide available at no charge. It previously cost $39.95 annually for a subscription to view both.
“As a company, we believe in providing information to consumers because the more information collectors have, the more likely they are to participate in our hobby,” explained Joe Orlando, SMR Editor and President of PSA, a division of Collectors Universe, Inc.
“Removing the pay wall and making the resources of the ‘Pop Report’ and SMR Online Price Guide free to everyone will give our industry the best chance at reaching new people. An informed collector is a happy one. In the coming months we’ll be announcing more web-based projects aimed at getting information into the hands of collectors to help make this a vibrant hobby for many years to come,” said Orlando.
Since its founding, PSA has processed nearly 20 million cards, autographs and other collectibles with a cumulative declared value over a billion dollars.
Updated each week, SMR Online (www.psacard.com/SMRPriceGuide) includes over 350,000 prices for sports and non-sports trading cards, autographs, unopened packs, tickets, professional model bats and graded baseballs.
“No other price guide covers such a wide range of collectibles, ranging from classic sports legends like Babe Ruth and Muhammad Ali to modern stars like Derek Jeter and Michael Jordan. In addition, the non-sports section of the price guide continues to grow,” said Orlando.
“We want the hobby to be healthy and inviting to new collectors. We’re doing what we can to expose collecting to a larger audience, and make it easier to access information quickly.”
Printed copies of the Sports Market Report magazine, a monthly price guide that includes feature stories on sports and non-sports trading cards and memorabilia, are available for $7 per issue or $49 for an annual subscription.
