I spent 190.00 to have my Mike Tyson items authenticated by PSA DNA,. All the items were signed in front of me as I was an official event coordinator for this event. I had my credentials and pictures to back up the signing but PSA decided it was fake. Do not use this company

PSA/DNA is a Joke

AUTHOR: Tessio68 - ()

It amazes me that people pay money for someones opinion, especially of those who have no experience in the field, even though they claim they do. This company flooded the memorabilia market with coa's for forgeries. Now they take your money to give their opinion and fail your items legitimacy to cover their asses. Myself and many sports memorabilia dealers who are at the shows and getting items signed by the athletes are getting screwed over by PSA & JSA who couldn't tell a real signature to save their lives. People please! Do your own research on the signatures and don't leave it up to these scam artists.

PSA DNA is being investigated by the FBI

AUTHOR: Dennis - (United States of America)

PSA DNA was entangled in a scan with  MASTRONET SPORTS AUCTIONS.  This being that they authenticated and graded an altered/faked out HONUS WAGNER CARD.

The NEW YORK DAILY NEWS REPORTED IN PART "      When a federal grand jury in Chicago indicted sports memorabilia executives Bill Mastro and Doug Allen on fraud charges last month, the first question many collectors and dealers asked was What does this mean for PSA?
 
PSA is Professional Sports Authenticators, the Southern California grading service that declared the worlds most famous and expensive baseball card a Honus Wagner T206 once owned by NHL star Wayne Gretzky -- an eight on a scale of 1-10 in 1991. 
 
The indictment claims that Mastro trimmed the card, which would make it significantly less valuable. Mastros lawyer has said that he expects the case against his client will be resolved without a trial, suggesting that Mastro is not only cooperating with the authorities, but will eventually acknowledge that he did indeed alter the card.
 
As we wrote in The Card, our book about the T206 Wagner and corruption in the hobby, a member of the PSA team that graded the card acknowledged that he knew the card was trimmed. Visitors to the National Sports Collectors Convention in Baltimore last week say an FBI agent spent a lot of time at the companys booth at the Baltimore Convention Center questioning PSA president Joe Orlando.
 
PSA has not publicly commented on the allegations in the indictment or in our book and newspaper articles. Orlando and David Hall, the president of Collectors Universe, PSAs parent company, have not responded to requests for interviews.
 
But a mole who attended PSAs invitation-only lunch at the National says the indictment and the allegations about the card were the main topic of discussion. Also, our spy tells us, the chicken Marsala was quite good.
 
Our mole says about 150 collectors and dealers attended the lunch, held Friday at the convention center. Hall, he says, got up and said he had to address the 800-pound gorilla in the room the indictment.   "
