Recent move marks improvement by providing high-resolution imagery

Newport Beach, CA (June 18, 2019) – To provide better security for its growing customer base, PSA (www.PSAcard.com) has added a cost-free “SecureScan” service.  The new imaging feature, which launched on the company’s website on May 10, 2019, involves taking front and back scans of PSA-encapsulated items with high-resolution scanners and making those images available on the PSA website.  At present, the benefit is available to all customers across five different levels of service including Super Express, Walk-Through, Premium, Premium Plus and Premium Elite.

“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.”

Currently, PSA is imaging cards, tickets and packs only, and uploading them to its online Certification Verification site (www.PSAcard.com/cert) for recording purposes.  The free, new service provides collectors with high-quality images to use on the PSA Set Registry as well as for their records including insurance 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.  The service is also available to customers seeking PSA’s $35-plus reholder option.

“This is just the first step toward adding the ‘SecureScan’ benefit to all service levels,” added Sloan.

PSA is the world’s largest trading card, autograph and memorabilia authentication and grading service.  Since 1991, PSA has examined and certified over 33 million collectibles with a combined value of over $1 billion.  For additional information, visit www.PSAcard.com.
