PSA is now taking high-resolution front and back scans of high value items it authenticates through five higher tier service levels.
Launched last month, “SecureScan” is available at no cost to collectors and dealers who submit cards, tickets and packs through its Super Express, Walk-Through, Premium, Premium Plus and Premium Elite service levels. Fees for those service levels cost anywhere from $200 to $5,000 and cover cards with stated values from $4,999 to $100,000 and up. The service is also available to customers who use the company’s $35-plus reholder option.
The images are uploaded to PSA’s online Certification Verification site (www.PSAcard.com/cert) where they can be used on PSA’s Set Registry or for other purposes. Customers will need to download the images directly from the Cert Verification page. PSA is not accepting any images from customers for uploading to the Cert Verification page; the item must be in-house and imaged by PSA to be uploaded.
“This is a significant step to help collectors with security measures as well as marketing opportunities for their collectibles,” said PSA President Steve Sloan.
“People can now view images of the exact item we authenticated, graded and encapsulated right on our Cert Verification page. This is extremely useful for those collectors looking to verify the details of an item, including its certification number, before they purchase it.”
Sloan says PSA plans to expand SecureScan to all service levels.
