Howie Kendrick’s tenth inning go-ahead grand slam for the @nationals in Game 5 of the NLCS will go down as one of the most exciting postseason moments in recent memory. Thank you, Howie, for donating your bat and allowing us to preserve this exciting piece of history. pic.twitter.com/kHSKCt2Rjs

PSA says it has now authenticated one million Pokémon cards–most within the last three years.
It’s become a big market for the company, which graded only 11 of them in 1999 but has since seen submission levels increase to five-figure numbers annually. Some of those submissions are coming from overseas as the game enjoys continued worldwide popularity.
Over the past 28 years, PSA says it has now certified more than 34 million different trading cards, autographs and sports collectibles.
