PSA/DNA Authentication Services recently certified the more than 7,500 signatures offered in the Upper Deck Company’s latest trading card release, Prominent Cuts.
The partnership also includes random pack inserts for free grading and authentication through the California-based third party authenticator.
“The base set consists of 60 regular cards of sports icons, celebrities and political figures. In addition to premium-sized swatches of Hollywood memorabilia, each box of Upper Deck Prominent Cuts will have a combination of three autographs or cut signatures from some of the greatest stars of film, literature, art, politics, sports and mixed-martial arts,” said Grant Sandground, product manager for Upper Deck.
Subjects included in the set are MMA fighters, basketball stars, actors and political figures. Hollywood Memorabilia inserts will include swatches of costumes worn by premier actors and actresses on film.
PSA Authenticated rare signature pieces from entertainment icons, both living and deceased. Autographs of Ronald Reagan and Barack Obama will be among those included. Rare Dual and Quad Cut cards will feature either two or four signatures of two big names on one card.
Some buyers may find coupons from PSA/DNA in the Prominent Cuts boxes that are good for either one free submission for certification and grading of a sport or non-sport card or autograph valued under $500, or to get a sixth item authenticated and graded free when five others are submitted at the same time.
“This will make it even easier for collectors to have their signature cards graded and then register their Upper Deck Prominent Cuts collection online in the PSA/DNA Set Registry,” said PSA/DNA president Joe Orlando.
Prominent Cuts is selling for around $175 per box on eBay.
