Default PSA advertisement via email for cardbuyer.com?

Just received an email from PSA promoting cardbuyer.com if you want to sell your collection. Claims they are collectors and not dealers... Seems somewhat weird, maybe fishy...collector paying highest prices... lol...

Auction houses I can understand but private collectors being able to advertise via PSA?

Possible conflict of interest for a public company?

Thoughts?

PSA has ads and promotions for dealers and auction houses, so I don't know how this would be much different.

Who would want to advertise with PSA of they aren't buying or selling cards or signed memorabilia?

I would assume a collector would in fact be buying Or do you think he just collects bills for advertising? And to the person seeing this as something wrong. Are you freaking kidding me? How is this any different than an auction house or dealer advertising? What a dumb inference to make. We sure can find the stupid crap to complain about.

It would seem as a public company PSA should stick to grading and improving there product and processes and not worry about creating secondary markets that really don't involve them especially when the ad buyer does not provide any contact info, address etc. Who knows who these people might be and what they may be trying to accomplish with the sports card market???

Auction houses and dealers are advertising to accomplish one thing and that is to get inventory to sell and or auction off to the highest bidder. There is a clear delineation of their motives. This PSA ad there are some gray areas...

As a public company they're doing what they should be doing - driving revenue and profit by selling ad space to the highest bidder.

Although I think Glyn went overboard in his criticism I agree with him. There is no issue with PSA putting out ads for collectors or any person or business as long as they are above board in what they are doing. That is my 1/2 cent.

Welcome to CardBuyer.com. My name is Rich, my 9 year old son and I are passionate about collecting vintage sports cards especially hockey and baseball cards!

What happened to people using their full names when doing business? I mean, I don't know who half the people selling big cards on ebay are, no names given.

The firms that pay PSA for advertising, also pay PSA for grading. The next time you see a PSA graded card and wonder "How did that card deserve that grade"? Could it be a return on those advertising dollars spent?
