PSA Set Registry Records 10,000 Sets
It has been a great three years. PSA launched the PSA Set RegistrySM
in June, 2001 with just 56 sets. On June 22, 2004, the 10,000th set was registered!
The Registry has grown every month with new sets and members. Today there are 2,297
different set composites and 2,032 members participating in the program.
The PSA Set RegistrySM has forever changed the face of the card market.
It has given collectors the desire to focus on specific areas and sets. It has
developed a world-wide community of collectors who can now easily communicate
with each other through email and message boards. It provides collectors with
the opportunity to "display" their sets in a safe environment. Pride
of ownership, friendly competition, and inventory management are just some of
the benefits. But by far, the most important element that the PSA Set RegistrySM
has brought to the marketplace is the fact that it has made card collecting
One factor that has contributed to the PSA Set RegistrySM's success
is the enthusiasm of all who participate in the program. With very little advertising
in the beginning, the Registry virtually marketed itself by word of mouth. In
three very short months, the number of sets had doubled. Today, this enthusiasm
remains one of PSA's driving factors to make the Registry the best it can
As a way of saying thank you, when the 10,000th set was registered a random
