What one player has had the most cards graded by PSA?

My guess is Michael Jordan. He is probably the most popular coupled with the fact that the are oodles and gobs of cheap Jordan cards that have been produced over the years.
Is there a way to confirm?
What are some other players that could compete for the top slot?
but I also say Jordan has the most.
collecting RAW Topps baseball cards 1952 Highs to 1972. looking for collector grade (somewhere between psa 4-7 condition). let me know what you have, I'll take it, I want to finish sets, I must have something you can use for trade.
looking for Topps 71-72 hi's-62-53-54-55-59, I have these sets started
Great question. Agree with all of the above. As for vintage, I would think Mantle.
Gotta be Griffey.......just the 89 UD alone...
I would guess Michael Jordan.
I forgot Wayne Gretzky
Nolan Ryan, Griffey, Gretzky, and Kobe are making put Pujols way down on my original list. Albert is too modern, I think.
I think it has to be a player from the "major mass production era". That's why I think Jordan has to be the most.
Is there a way to find out?
Found this posted of Jan. this year-
The most graded individual cards at PSA were the 1990-91 Fleer Jordan #26 (16,000), the 1992-93 Topps O'Neal rookie #362 ($9,500), the 1989 Upper Deck Ken Griffey Jr. rookie (9,400), the 1989-90 Hoops Jordan #200 ($9,300) and the 1993 Topps Derek Jeter rookie #98 (8,000)
There are over 81,000 1989 Topps Traded Griffey's graded.
But wait.... There are over 95,000 1989 Upper Deck Griffey's graded.
And the very "rare" 1986 fleer Michael Jordan..... Just shy of 25,000 of them have been graded by PSA.
1987 Fleer Barry Bonds...... 28,000
1985 Topps Mark McGwire...... 58,000
1990 Leaf Sammy Sosa...... 27,000
Ken Griffey jr
Live long, and prosper.
I stopped collecting 1980+ sports cards because of the sheer number of high end cards. The actual number is more important than the % at a given grade, i.e. there are "only" 1.4% PSA-10 1986 Fleer Michael Jordan cards...but then realize that there are 317 PSA-10s! Not rare enough to justify a 6-figure price tag...IMHO.
Adding up all 1999 charizard #4 variations is around 54,000.
I'd imagine a sports card is the most graded single card.
Sports cards only issued during career play (Jordan?)
Sports cards all time (Jordan again?)
Charizard is holding his own!!!
And I’m pretty sure he is still “playing”!!
Live long, and prosper.
Zion base prizm.
Ive gotta think its Griffey
Gotta be jordan or griffey
Kiss me twice.....let's party.

I have no clue, but if I had to put my money on somebody, it would be Michael Jordan. He kind of falls into a sweet spot where his early cards are still worth a good price even if they are ungraded, but played into an era where there were tons of cards printed of him.
I would assume that Griffey has the most graded rookie cards, but the fact that Upper Deck printed so many of them really hurts the value, and I don't see Griffey's post-rookie year cards being as desirable as Jordan's - or even his non-Upper Deck rookies for that matter - but you never know. I wouldn't be surprised if Griffey did have the most.
Good post, I agree with your thoughts. I would add that Nolan Ryan doesn't have nearly as many first year cards graded (just under 12,000) but his 1986 Topps card in PSA 10 was going for $1,000.00 a while back. That would lead me to believe people are submitting almost 20 years of his cards (maybe more? His 1991 Stadium Club tuxedo card goes for $250.00).
I would guess Ryan could be #1 in total cards graded.
I'm wondering how many Griffey cards were submitted after 1992?
