PSA/DNA Pre-Cert of framed item and other questions
Question for you experts… I recently picked up a nicely framed autographed jersey that’s quite large about 4ft x 3.5ft. It was PSA/DNA Pre-Certified, so I’d like to take advantage of the deal. So, some questions:
Do I need to remove it from the frame for them to authenticate? If I send it in, I probably would do that to save on shipping. But PSA/DNA will be at the Rich Altman show in Boston this weekend, and I assume they’d honor the pre Cert guarantee in person as well. But will they do it in the frame? It’s really nicely done, all sealed up on the back, etc. - I’d hate to have to crack the thing open… They presumably pre-certified it in the frame and they guarantee an official cert if submitted, so it seems like keeping it in the frame keeps the integrity in place. But I also don’t want to lug this massive thing around and potentially stand in line for hours with it either, so maybe I should remove it. But would that void the pre-cert? Ugh, I’m torn and confused.
Finally, how can I tell if the frame’s glass has museum glass or some kind of UV protection?
