Goldin & PSA Partner To Grade & Sell Trading Cards

Goldin and PSA have partnered to launch two new services providing every collector with the fastest and easiest way to submit their raw trading cards for grading and selling through Goldin’s leading marketplace. Customers who participate in the new programs — called “Grading with Goldin” and “Rip & Flip” — will now benefit from two-week turnaround times for PSA’s industry-leading authentication and grading services on cards valued at $499 and above, with no upfront costs.

Launching today, Grading with Goldin is available to any customer with ungraded trading cards. Anyone can participate in the program and additional benefits are now available for those submitting items to be sold through Goldin. Here’s how it works:

  • Submit your raw cards to Goldin
  • Get them graded by PSA within two weeks
  • Have your cards automatically listed on the Goldin Marketplace instantly and when your item sells, your grading fee is deducted from the proceeds

Goldin is also partnering with the leading card breaking platforms and hobby shops, including FilthBomb Breaks, Loupe, The Coffee Breakers, Roadshow Cards and The Hobby Australia, to launch Rip & Flip. Available now, Rip & Flip enables breakers and hobby shops to save their customers the time and money associated with shipping and listing items on other marketplaces by using Goldin’s new one-stop program. Through Rip & Flip, when collectors pull a big card, they can choose to have that card sent directly to Goldin to be graded by PSA and listed for sale on Goldin’s marketplace. Participants in the program will have a grading turnaround time of two weeks or better and won’t pay grading fees until their card sells. More information can be found at goldin.co/ripandflip.

“The hard and soft costs associated with collecting are at all-time highs for consumers today,” said Goldin Executive Chairman and Founder Ken Goldin. “Collectors have to ship their cards multiple times – to be photographed, graded and listed – all in hopes that they can find a buyer who ends up paying and is happy when they receive their items. Grading With Goldin and Rip & Flip makes collecting a seamless process and eliminates all of that leg work. Our goal is to allow everyone to capitalize on our expertise, industry-leading reputation and highly-trafficked auctions to get the best prices for their items. These new services are the easiest way to have items professionally authenticated, graded and automatically listed for sale with no upfront costs.”

“PSA is always looking to support the growth of the hobby by providing innovative tools and services that make collecting a more enjoyable experience,” said PSA President Kevin Lenane. “We’re excited to partner with Goldin to create a one-stop-shop where every collector has seamless access to two of the industry’s most trusted brands.”

“In talking with some of Loupe’s most serious collectors, we learned that quick and easy liquidity was at the top of their wishlist,” said Loupe founder and CEO Eric Doty. “With Rip & Flip, the industry’s best are teaming up to further streamline the process of getting cards graded, listed and sold. We’re thrilled to join Goldin and PSA to give our collectors the efficient program they’ve been asking for.”

The launch of Grading with Goldin and Rip & Flip come at a time when both enthusiasm for collectibles and demand for authentication and grading services remain at historic highs. To date, Goldin has sold more than $1.5 billion worth of collectibles on its platform and consistently shatters records for prices realized, total bids placed and more.
