PSA is now providing dual grading for autographed trading cards submitted for certification. The insert label within the PSA holder will indicate the individual grades for both the card and the autograph.
For example, a card might be graded PSA Mint 9 while the autograph could be given a different grade. The move is similar to what Beckett Grading offers for autographed cards.
“In addition, since the individual grades are noted on the label for both the autograph and the card, collectors can now use the item for either the PSA or PSA/DNA Set Registry, which is now home to well over 100,000 collections,” explained Orlando.
Each PSA-certified dual grade card is encapsulated with what the company calls “enhanced security features, including an embedded PSA security hologram that is part of the insert label paper.”
Fees for this new service start at $25 and rise, based on the player.
Collectors of event tickets, such as Super Bowl and World Series tickets, can also submit autographed tickets for PSA dual grading.
