Does PSA destroy your collectables?….YES
I would think twice to all of you that are sending your most cherished collectibles to PSA. So first, they mis-labeled a rare 1973 Topps Wacky Packages 1st Series Pack in PSA 8 as a 2nd series. Fairly elementary to distinguish between a series 1 and 2 with the card showing through the back, but never-the-less, they did. So I sent the graded PSA 8 pack in to be corrected. Many weeks later, I received an email, thats right, an email advising that they damaged my rare pack and it is now about a PSA 6! Not even the courtesy of a call to a near 20 year customer. That was bad enough but what followed was even more despicable. After a few emails, they finally called to tell me they would like to offer me $200 for destroying my 8, although recent sales of the pack in PSA are consistently $1200 plus tax. They insult you further by reciting, business-like rhetoric like “Terms of Agreement” and declared value, with total disregard for recent sales and the fact you can not find a replacement at the present time. So, as many have asked me throughout the years, can you trust PSA with your cherished collectables? The answer is ABSOLUTELY NOT and if they do destroy your card they have no intention of making things right…I miss Joe Orlando.
