Default Change at PSA

Rich Albersheim is no longer a PSA authenticator.
His name and bio have been removed from the PSA website.
I have not talked to him since I heard this news so I don't know what his plans are now.

If anyone finds out why, let us know. I had multiple dealings with Richie and he is a man of integrity like alot of the other oldschool dealers

That might just be why Rich is no longer with them.

Without a scintilla of information on the situation, I'll hazard a guess that Rich is leaving PSA for a better opportunity, perhaps with a TPA looking to add one of the marquee names in the hobby and willing to pay for it.

Maybe he left because of the usual corporate crap. No quality just quantity. He's a good guy and I have won a few things from him when he was running his auctions.

I have it on good authority that the biggest issue was the travel schedule.

My guess is the same, going from running your business, your way, its difficult to conform to the corporate culture, and Im sure PSA is looking for volume and is expecting a lot of hours and weekends, which is going to wear you out fast.

Just a quick bump here about Mr. Albersheim.

He was taking offers on his inventory today, and I felt a bit uncomfortable making one because I'm never sure what is insulting and what is not.

Any way, I emailed him to buy something and told him to just take off whatever he was comfortable with/thought was fair and to just charge me.

He ended up taking 40 percent off. I found that to be incredibly kind and just wanted to share.

I will for sure give him my business in the future.
