PSA Question

Post by Silly on Mon Apr 22, 2013 8:39 am

I have a question regarding different forms of PSA Athentication. I know everyone has their own opinion on PSA, JSA, and authentication services in general but let's try to keep this one on topic.

My question is, about the difference in Rookie Graph PSA Authentication, and just your standard PSA Authentication. Below is the the criteria for obtaining a "Rookie Graph" authentication:

"Any item that is autographed and received by PSA/DNA prior to the beginning of the athlete's second full season of play may be submitted under these services"

Now my question is does that bring any extra value? What does it matter? I would think maybe it does bring value because then you can prove it was signed at an early part of a career? Are you better obtaining the "Rookie Graph" status, or standard Authentication?

Thanks!

PSA IS A SCAM!!!!!! Very Happy

From what I've seen, yes, Rookie authentication does hold a higher value, I'd guess cause there are fewer of them out there. If you do PSA, prob wouldn't be a bad idea to try to get someone like Soler slabbed as a rookie graph.

I've seen stuff on eBay with this and the description certainly plays up the fact that it's a rookie graph and that PSA has authenticated it as that.

I personally like PSA. I agree that its a money racket and its a company thats solely based on opinions...but I believe they are the best company out there doing what they do.

In regards to the Rookie Graph...the main purpose for this is that alot of athlete's autos tend to change the longer they play...most after their rookie season so having a certified rookie graph is just something a certain niche of collectors go after...I personally could careless to have a rookie graph as long as I have a certified graph.

From what I've heard rookie graphs on items are kind of like rookie error cards (such as the Frank Thomas one) in the card collecting world. They are highly sought after due to their rarity, and they do have some extra value. Wouldn't be able to get into pure numbers on how much, but it definitely brings a little bit more due to the rarity and uniqueness.
