Goldin and PSA launched two new platforms Tuesday, both designed to get valuable cards to market in a short time frame.
Collectors will be able to send their raw cards to Goldin, which will forward them to PSA where they’re graded within two weeks and can then be automatically listed on Goldin’s marketplace. When the card sells, the grading fee is deducted from the proceeds.
Goldin is also partnering with the breaking platforms and hobby shops, including FilthBomb Breaks, Loupe, The Coffee Breakers, Roadshow Cards and The Hobby Australia, to launch Rip & Flip.
When collectors pull a valuable card, they can choose to have that card sent directly to Goldin to be graded by PSA and listed for sale through Goldin. Participants in the program will also have a grading turnaround time of two weeks or better and won’t pay grading fees until their card sells.
“In talking with some of Loupe’s most serious collectors, we learned that quick and easy liquidity was at the top of their wishlist,” stated Loupe founder and CEO Eric Doty.
