Ownership Through The Blockchain
The QR code to rule all others! PSG are disrupting the trading card space by utilising Blockchain Technology to track the value of your cards and allow you to understand what your portfolio is worth.
By utilising the blockchain, you receive security around ownership and have the ability to trade digital assets on the blockchain ledger.
Reliability, Security & Protection
All PSG slabs are made of durable plastic and are ultrasonically welded to ensure your valuable card is tamperproof and has complete protection from the elements for years to come. Each slab label is also specially designed and printed for your unique card and incorporates a range of security features to make tampering and counterfeiting nearly impossible.
Our blockchain linking is the final piece in the security puzzle, solidifying your ownership of the card officially.
As a final note, we treat your cards as if they were our own, which is great because being collectors ourselves, we understand that each card has sentimental as well as monetary value. We treat your cards with the utmost care and respect they deserve.
The Transparency of Sub-Grades
Ever eat at a restaurant, and love the meal, but just wish you knew what the ingredients were? Wonder no more at PSG. Each of your cards will be evaluated on four separate criteria to make up their final grade. But you won’t be left wondering how it ranked in each of those areas, as these sub-grades will be clearly detailed on the back of the slab.
Each card is given a score out of 10 based on the cards Surface Quality, Corners, Edges and Centering, which are then averaged to achieve the final 10. Your overall grade can not be any more than 1 FULL grade higher than the lowest SUB grade. This is why the PSG Platinum 10 is so sought after.
Clarity & Incredible Looks
We’re called Platinum Standard Grading for a reason. Our labels are UV printed on premium high-quality stock with platinum detailing.
The design is crisp, clean and subtle, displaying only the info you need and want to see without detracting from the beauty of the card itself.
The PSG Platinum 10
We all want our cards to be perfect 10’s, but at PSG, we don’t just throw them around like candy. When our elite graders spot a Platinum 10, it will be approved by the full PSG panel before being granted the PSG Platinum 10 grade.
