    PSA / DNA Question

    I'm assuming they can but I just want to get the boards opinion as some of you are experts in this area. I'm looking at a Ted Williams cut that is slabbed on ebay. It looks a little older (not sure if it actually is) but the auto seems different then a few of the others that appear to be from the late 80s (when he was signing a lot.

    I'm thinking it may be different if it is indeed older however I'm assuming that the experts at PSA/DNA took this into account and are much more skilled than my 2 minute eye check.

    I guess I'm a little apprehensive since I've never spent this amount on a card. Should I be worried? Any steps to take?

    Below is a link to the item in question.

    Thanks in advance for any input.

    Yes they do. And also that price seems high for that particular cut. With patience you could snag a nice pack issued one from UD for that price or find a similar index card for half that price

    There are so many better options than the one you posted, keep your eyes open, you will find a better auto for a better price.

    I love the 1987 Perez-Steele Great Moments. That is a much better piece for the price than the slabbed cut.

    Thanks for the responses guys. So I shouldn't worry as long as it's slabbed?

    As for the auto I want, I wouldn't pay full price, but hopefully get the seller to come down a bit. The reason I like that one is whether it is or not, it has a vintage feel to it. While I do like some of the Perez Steele, there are plenty of them out there and they were for sure signed at the end of his life. The other cut is a bit unique, which I like.
