PSA has reduced the backlog of cards submitted for grading to under four million. A year ago, that number stood at over 12 million.
Most of the cards still in its possession arrived a little more than a year ago, just after the company announced it would no longer accept submissions except for its highest tier services.
At its current rate, PSA should be done with backlogged orders in 3-4 months.
In March, they graded and shipped over one million cards.
Back in the 1990s, a 12-year-old kid walked out of Rock’s Dugout in Wichita, KS with four T206 cards without paying for them.

The story has an unexpected, but happy ending.
