PSA UK announced!


PSA Authentication & Grading Services have announced the launch of their UK forwarding service, PSA UK.

With the launch of PSA UK, UK-based collectors will finally have an easy way to send their precious collectables to PSA’s world famous offices in the United States. The UK branch is being opened with a wealth of experience provided by Barney Ludkins and his team, formally known as Ludkins Collectables. 

Customers can submit cards to PSA UK from as little as £20 per card through the return of PSA’s Value service alongside Economy, Regular and Express. For more information on how to submit read here.

The exciting new chapter was revealed in a statement, 

“A decade ago, Ludkins Collectables was born with the humble idea of making PSA’s grading services more accessible to a wider UK audience. Since then, through the support of amazing staff and an incredible community, we’ve grown to become the biggest PSA middleman service in the UK.

Over the years we expanded and became a worldwide name thanks to our former Ludkins USA branch. We have always strived to bring the best service possible to as many customers as possible despite frustrations that have been thrown our way.

The last couple of years have been crazy with rapid growth in the collectables industry leading to huge demand for grading services and ultimately the closure of submissions for all of PSA’s grading levels in May 2021. These decisions were out of our control and due to the circumstances Ludkins Collectables has been closed for submissions for over a year. Until now…


It is with great pleasure and excitement that we can now officially reveal the future of Ludkins Collectables – We will now be operating as PSA UK, the official UK forwarding office for the world’s most distinguished grading service. 

From today PSA UK are offering: Value, Economy, Regular and Express Services for your trading cards. More services will follow once we have made additional team hires and adequate training is provided.

PSA UK also has exclusive pricing of £20 for the value service that is available to residents in the United Kingdom and we will extend this offer to EU residents in the near future.

Prior Ludkins Orders:

As for all our loyal customers that have been waiting patiently for their card returns over the last year, we just want to assure you all that you and your precious collectables are still our priority and in safe hands. The team is working tirelessly to make sure you get them back as soon as possible. We’re also thankful that PSA UK has come to fruition as it allows us to rebuild a tremendous team to provide a great service going forward.

We are ecstatic to finally open up submissions again and work as part of PSA. This is the next step for Ludkins Collectables and one we are incredible proud to share with you all. Thank you to everyone that has ever submitted a card with us in the past, enquired about our services, or liked a post on Facebook. None of this would’ve been possible without your valued support. “
