PSA High Demand Pricing

PSA released a statement saying that ultra-modern cards (2017-present) fall within a new high demand pricing tier of $12-15/card (see below)

Do all ultra-modern cards need to be submitted together as one submission?

If I mix older cards with ultra-modern cards will all the ultra-modern cards get bumped up to $12-$15/card?
I’m curios how others are handling this.

Correct me if I’m wrong on this, but my understanding is that the price increase is only for ultra-modern sports cards, given that’s the vast majority of the PSA backlog. Here’s a screenshot of the PSA Value submission price guide:

I think if you were to submit a whole submission of trading cards, regardless of the years, you would not have any issue with the higher prices. If you were to mix TCG and sports, that might be a different thing, but I think they are trying to stop that from happening anyways with some of the recent changes.

@fourthstartcg, that would be great if it’s only for sports card. However, for the ultra-modern card types, it shows sports and non-sports. It looks like I could easily bypass this by submitting everything under the trading card game category, but I’m wondering if the ultra-modern card prices will get bumped up.

I doubt it as it also notes that the TCG prices are for all years. Doesn’t help that for the longest time TCG cards were considered “non-sports” by PSA. Certainly not the easiest pricing guide to navigate, but worst comes to worst you could just submit under the TCG category and see if anything happens.

“PSA” and “Frustrating” seem to be becoming more and more synonymous :face_with_spiral_eyes:
