Default How is a variation handled by PSA that they currently don't have listed

How is a card variation graded by PSA if I send it in and they don't currently have that card listed in their master set ? Do they list the new variation on the label or not recognize it ? Do I wait until the variation is listed on their site ?

In my experience, they won't recognize it.

I would post a sticky note on the card explaining the variation. They will most likely research it if they are unsure of it. But by you explaining it to them may make their research much easier.

Is it recognized by any hobby source, such as SCD or Beckett ? If not I think it will be a tough sell directly to PSA. I know folks who worked hard to get SCD and Beckett to recognize a variation as a prelude to seeking PSA recognition.

Getting Beckett or SCD recognition may depend on whether it is a just a recurring print defect or an intentional change in the card by the manufacturer in the printing processs

Default If it is not recognized

If it is not recognized in any hobby publications you have a very very very slim to no chance of getting PSA to recognize it and label it as one. There are many cards out there that have variations that PSA does not label. You can do the sticky note but it is almost definetly a waste of time.

My understanding has always been that it needs to be documented in a hobby resource for them to recognize it. However, if it is indeed a legit variation, it shouldn't be too hard to get it documented.

Try scanning the front and back of the card and sending it in an email to info@PSAcard.com

Been there, done that.

The decision to recognize a new variation is arbitrary, as is the grade they assign.

I'm curious as to what the variation is. Would you be willing to share?
