Brick-and-mortar eBay drop-off stores will offer California company’s authentication/grading services to customers.
Professional Sports Authenticator (PSA and PSA/DNA) has teamed with iSold It to offer certification services to the eBay drop-off stores’ clientele.
“Online sellers usually get more money for their collectibles if they’ve first been certified for authenticity and graded. Sports cards and autographs of all kinds can now be dropped off at any iSold It Store, and then processed through PSA and PSA/DNA. After the authentication, the certified items are returned to the iSold It store where they are professionally photographed and listed on eBay,” said Joe Orlando, President of PSA and PSA/DNA, divisions of Collectors Universe, Inc. of Santa Ana, California (NASDAQ: CLCT).
