Selling a card turned down by PSA
Any have any idea why you'd try to sell a card that was turned down by PSA? I mean it's proven that it's not authentic why would anyone buy it?
Collecting Texas Rangers autographs
281/950 (30%) of all Texas Rangers/Washington Senators players
To me...I don't trust PSA. I had sent them 2 cards that I had signed in person and both were turned down. I mean really? I had the player sign both cards right in front of me....and they are telling me they aren't authentic? hahaha
WHY? because he is a scammer
did you look at his other listings?
almost everything he sells is a bogus gma 'graded' card
with same inflated book value
FYI gma was started by a card counterfeiter WHO GOT ARRESTED FOR SELLING COUNTERFEIT CARDS!
most of the vintage cards and high end rookies 'graded' in gma cases are COUNTERFEIT!
the seller is a criminal and worthless individual, that is why... js
PSA is NOT the final authority in our hobby. They are just "an opinion" they will even tell you you that you are juts paying for their "opinion". so just because PSA says something isnt legit doesnt mean they are the golden authority. LOTS of stuff they dont pass is actually legit and LOTS of stuff they do pass is not legit. I once submitted an item that had their very own PSA/DNA letter saying it was legit. then years later i resubmitted it because i wanted to get that particular card encased (blue label holder) guess, what they said it wasnt legit? how could that be when they PASSED the same EXACT card years before? the way they are going, one day PSA opinion isnt going to be much better from joe citizen setting up a picnic table and lawn chair at a card show taking $20 a card to say . yes, no, yes, no, yes no! as the old saying goes everyone has an opinion and opinion are like.....well you know the rest!
I agree with this. I do collect graded PSA cards as that's an opinion I can agree on and can look at the card, giving it at least a little merit. Plus, it's fun participating in the Set Registry. I do not, however, like PSA/DNA. Never have.

I also collect PSA cards because they at least have some weight in the hobby when it comes to authentication. i just have a hard time with them when i know 110% i gace a ball/card to a player, handed them a pen, I watched them sign the item, the player gave me the pen and ball/card back. i send it in to PSA and they say its not legit? how can that be when i witnessed with my very own eyes the player signing the item? lol so for those reasons, PSA is just an opinion not the golden final authority on autograph authenticity.
James Spence authentication is who I trust and who I would highly recommend.
