PSA - The early years

Going through my stuff, I came across some PSA items I kept when I first became a member back in the 1996.
Here is a letter they sent, talking about their new service, Minimum Grade.
If the card didn't meet the Min grade, they would call you to explain why.
Can you imagine that today? LOL
PSA did have transparency...at one time.

    Yes my rookie year here I called some guy out for spending and then boasting about winning a 7k PSA 8 common off ebay, I nearly got run out of town on a rail but I got the last laugh when the same card could have been had about a year or so later for less than $400
