“Typically, on-site trading card grading only happens once a year, at the National Sports Collectors Convention, held in varying cities in the Midwest and East Coast.  But we felt like doing something a bit different this year, so we are giving West Coast collectors a treat by offering on-site service for the upcoming Long Beach Expo,” said PSA President Joe Orlando.

On-site card grading will be offered Thursday, June 8 through Friday, June 9.  All card submissions must be made by Friday at 11 a.m.  Table holders and Early Entry badges will be offered on-site grading on Wednesday, June 7.  PSA/DNA will also be offering on-site autograph authentication on Saturday, June 10 only.  All autographs received by 2 p.m. Saturday will be ready for pickup by show’s end.
