PSA says it has nearly doubled operating capacity through the first nine months of 2020 but the volume of submissions has doubled, too, and the company’s gigantic backlog of orders is still growing.

The California-based authentication and grading company has now temporarily suspended acceptance of new trading card and dual service economy submissions. They’ve also raised prices for some service levels but they’ve also lowered the minimum number of cards required to use their lowest cost service.
They’ve also picked a group of authorized dealers to act as preferred group submission centers.
