PSA Plans More NSCC Show Promotions, Giveaways



Visitors to the PSA and PSA/DNA booth at this year's National Sports Collectors Convention can also register for drawings of free sports collectibles that will be given away throughout the week. Among the prizes that winners can receive are: 2003 Upper Deck Michael Jordan-signed card; Starlin Castro-signed bat; Ernie Banks-signed baseball; Brian Urlacher-signed football; Derrick Rose-signed basketball; 1970 Topps Bobby Hull card graded PSA 8; 1983 Topps Ryne Sandberg card graded PSA 9; 1990 Leaf Frank Thomas card graded PSA 10 and other certified sports collectibles.






Earlier this week, the company indicated plans to give away a Babe Ruth poster and copies of its monthly magazine, The Sports Card Market Report. The 184-page special edition of SMR is devoted to Chicago area sports legends and their collectibles, including Michael Jordan, Joe Jackson, Ernie Banks, Ryne Sandberg, Ron Santo, Frank Thomas, Bobby Hull and Walter Payton. A 16-page insert in each magazine provides highlights of this year's PSA Set Registry winners.


PSA will also have an exhibit of dozens of scarce, high-grade baseball cards from Don Spence's Babe Ruth Master set.


The display will also feature several of the actual items depicted on the Ruth poster PSA will be giving away, such as the finest known singled-signed Ruth official American League baseball graded Mint + 9.5, and a 1927 Babe Ruth payroll check from the New York Yankees. "The highlighted items are from the outstanding Twinight Collection, which is quickly becoming one of the finest overall collections in the hobby," said Joe Orlando, President of PSA.


PSA will offer on-site card grading at the National, and a special discounted rate will be offered to submitters. Information about PSA activities at the upcoming National and the special discount rates on submissions can be found online at PSA at the 32nd National Sports Collectors Convention.
Because of the anticipated large number of cards that will be submitted to PSA at the National, collectors and dealers are encouraged to contact PSA Customer Service in advance at (800) 325-1121 or info@psacard.com to reserve a grading placement. Placements for grading at the National will be made on a first come, first serve basis.


The PSA and PSA/DNA Authentication Services booth will be located in the Corporate Pavilion at the National Sports Collectors Convention in Hall A of the Donald E. Stephens Convention Center, 5555 N. River Rd., Rosemont, Illinois, August 3 - 7.
