How To Grade With TCGroupAU
Step 1 - Submission Preparation
Rarity and Desirability: Choose cards that are rare, highly sought-after, or part of a popular set, as these cards tend to attract more attention and value in the market when graded by PSA.
Condition Assessment: Evaluate the card's condition carefully, focusing on factors like corners, edges, centering, surface, and any potential flaws or damages. Cards in excellent condition are more likely to receive higher grades from PSA, increasing their market appeal.
Potential Value Increase: Consider the potential increase in the card's value after grading. Some cards may see a significant boost in price when encapsulated in a PSA holder, making the grading cost worthwhile.
Long-Term Goals: Determine your long-term goals for the graded cards, whether it's for personal collection, investment, or resale. This will help prioritize which cards are best suited for grading.
Authentication Needs: If you have cards of significant value or historical importance, getting them authenticated and graded by a reputable company like PSA can provide added confidence to buyers and collectors, ensuring their authenticity is certified.
Step 2 - Selecting Service Level
Choose the appropriate service level based on the value and turnaround time you prefer. PSA offers different service tiers, such as Regular, Express, Super Express, and more, each with varying pricing and processing speed.
Our service level packages can be selected in the service level section lower on this page.
