It was a busy National Sports Collectors Convention for PSA and PSA/DNA.
The company processed more than 17,000 units during the course of this year’s National in Cleveland, starting on Wednesday evening and stretching through Sunday.
That included cards, autographs and even some reholdering of original photos submitted by thousands of collectors, dealers and auction houses that were in attendance at the I-X Center. While the company doesn’t disclose financial figures or specific numbers, trading cards remain the primary driver. The revenue generated was higher than at any other NSCC.
“This year’s National was an unforgettable one for the hobby,” said PSA President Steve Sloan. “The media exposure was terrific and the energy on the floor was consistently upbeat.”
Sloan called the revenue record “a testament to the health of the hobby.”
Among the submissions that PSA/DNA authenticated during the show was a pair of Christy Mathewson autographed baseballs, given in 1916 to a family with whom he was acquainted and passed down through generations.
