I've submitted 3 batches of cards to be graded by PSA thus far. I understand that the declared value of the card(s) submitted affects the service level you need to choose (Regular- up to $500 value, Express- up to $1999, etc.).

My question is two-fold-

1- If I submit a card that I think will be a PSA 9 (valued at $150) , but there's a chance for it to be a PSA 10 (valued at $1400), how much should I set my declared value at? Is it presumptuous to declare a value based on a PSA 10's price?

2- Also, if I declare the value to be $150 (at the $500 limit service level), will that negatively affect the graders decision to possibly grade it a PSA 10? Or will they just naturally bump up the service level and charge me the extra grading fee based on it's value?

Sorry for my rambling....just trying to get the complete picture across.....

I think you will be OK on #1. However, if something happens on the way back to you and it gets lost, you are insured for only the lower amount.

Regarding #2 - I'm not sure if the grader even sees what you insured each card for. As Kirk mentioned ... post on the PSA Forum.

Will do. Thanks for the info! I think you are right that they don't see the insured value. However, they do know what service level you choose, so that would indicate to them what the maximum value would be.

For example, if you choose the "Regular" service, the maximum value is $499. So by default, they would know that it shouldn't be worth more than that.

But on will post on the PSA sight as well. thanks all!

Always better to "over" insure even if it cost a little extra.
