Effective March 1, 2010, PSA will be implementing a new method of shipping collectibles back to the submitter. For all packages with a value of $100,000 or less, we will begin using USPS Priority or Express Mail vs. the previously used Registered Mail. Priority Mail service will be used for packages valued up to $15,000 and Express Mail will be used for packages valued between $15,000 and $100,000.
Packages valued between $100,000 and $150,000 will continue to use Registered Mail. (For packages over $150k, you must call the PSA Customer Service.)
All packages will be fully insured by PSA. Signatures will continue to be required to receive all packages.
An email will automatically be sent to the recipient when either a Priority or Express Mail package is mailed. This email will contain the USPS tracking number associated with that package. The package can then be tracked using that number on the USPS website – www.usps.com .
Priority Mail packages typically take 2-4 days to arrive anywhere within the US.
Express Mail packages typically take 1-2 days to arrive anywhere within the US.
Most importantly, PSA has lowered the cost of return shipping for any package valued at less than $100k, regardless of the number of cards or collectibles being submitted (see new pricing grid below).
For the next 90 days, if you submit collectibles using an old submission form, we will automatically calculate any refund due you and reimburse you for the difference. We have ordered new forms and expect them to arrive within the next few days. Please be sure to discard your old forms.
