The Baseball Card Exchange provides the service of authenticating unopened boxes. Full unopened boxes of Wax, Cello and Rack Packs can be authenticated.

The charge for authentication will be 5% of the retail value of the box (minimum charge will be $5). The charge will be applied whether the unopened box is deemed “good” or “bad”. If the box is deemed “good” it will be wrapped in our shrink wrap and receive a sticker identifying the box. The customer is responsible for shipping charges both ways.

“From Sealed Case” – Only boxes that are removed from a sealed case by us will be marked as “From Sealed Case”.

Many of the vintage boxes that we sell on our website are already in our wrap. In most instances any sport box pre-1985 will be wrapped. We also pre-wrap some of the more popular boxes (i.e. 1989 Score Football, 1989 Upper Deck Baseball, 1992 Bowman Baseball) or more expensive boxes (over $250). If you have a question on whether a box is in our wrap, just send us an email ( ) .

If you place an order through our website for a box that does not come in our wrap, and would like it wrapped, just make a note in the comments section of your order and we will wrap it and charge accordingly.

If you are going to send in boxes for authentication, please just send us an email letting us know that a package is on the way ( ). Also, please include some type of paperwork inside the package so that we can contact you when we are finished.

We do not “over-wrap” and box that has factory wrap from another manufacturer (Upper Deck, Donruss, etc.)

We will not authenticate individual packs. This service is provided by PSA. We can do rack packs.
