Altered Cards and a Concerned Hobbyist
My thread last night was locked, but I was encouraged to try again, so here goes.
I like PSA. I own many PSA graded cards. I think it will be better for the hobby if PSA succeeds, and I want them too.
But PSA has failed, a failure of unknown scope, but a failure nonetheless. Untold numbers of altered cards reside in PSA holders. The bad guys seem to be winning too much, and my confidence is shaken. Blaming the bad guys is not a response, because one of PSA’s core missions is to stay ahead of the bad guys.
PSA needs to regain my confidence. It won’t do so unless it addresses the issue forthrightly to all of its customers, not just those who read the message board, and explain how it intends to do better. I don’t think the statement yesterday achieved those things. Hopefully the next one will.
