San Diego, CA (PRWEB) July 07, 2014

PSA (http://www.psacard.com), the world’s largest third-party certification company for trading cards, autographs and memorabilia, will be giving away PSA-graded samples of Game of Thrones and X-Men™ trading cards at the Comic-Con International: San Diego convention, July 24 – 27, 2014.

Also while supplies last, PSA will be giving visitors free copies of the August 2014 issue of SMR (Sports Market Report) magazine, a useful monthly publication filled with informative stories about collectibles. The magazine also features price guides for popular trading cards. The August issue has articles about Game of Thrones, X-Men, Mickey Mouse™, Zorro™ and Godzilla™ collectibles and more.

Visitors to the PSA booth (#5617) can enter for a chance to win the original acrylic-on-canvas Godzilla artwork created for the magazine’s August 2014 cover by renowned artist Arthur K. Miller. Valued at more than $3,000, the custom-framed artwork will be given away to a lucky visitor in a random drawing among those who register at the PSA booth during the convention. No purchase or payment is necessary to enter the sweepstakes. The Official Rules can be found at http://www.PSAcard.com/comiccon.

PSA/DNA autograph experts will be available at Comic-Con to authenticate autographs on-site.

“PSA-certified collectibles often sell for premium prices because of the strength and credibility of the PSA brand,” said Joe Orlando, President of PSA and Editor of SMR magazine.

“PSA/DNA uses an invisible DNA marker on certified items. It can only be seen using a calibrated laser, and counterfeiters have only a 1 in 33 trillion chance of duplicating that DNA strand,” explained Orlando.

Since 1991, PSA experts have examined and certified more than 20 million trading cards, autographs and other entertainment and sports memorabilia with an estimated cumulative value of more than $1 billion.

The Comic-Con convention will be held in the San Diego Convention Center, 111 W. Harbor Drive. For additional information about the event, go to http://www.comic-con.org.

About VIKINGS

VIKINGS tells the extraordinary tales of the lives and epic adventures of these warriors. The drama portrays the world of these Dark Age raiders, traders, explorers – not from an outsider’s view, but, through the eyes of Viking society. VIKINGS centers on Ragnar (Travis Fimmel), a restless young warrior and family man who longs to find and conquer new lands across the sea and claim the spoils as his own.

Travis Fimmel (Warcraft) continues to lead the stellar cast as Ragnar, along with Katheryn Winnick as Lagertha, an Earl and fierce shield maiden; Clive Standen as Rollo, Ragnar’s impulsive brother; Alexander Ludwig as Bjorn, the intelligent and bold warrior son of Ragnar; George Blagden as Athelstan, a young and not-so-innocent monk; Jessalyn Gilsig as Siggy, beautiful wife of the late Earl Haraldson; Linus Roache as Ecbert, King of Wessex, a man of strength, knowledge and undisguised ambition; Gustaf Skarsgard as Floki, a ship builder who designs the new generation of Vikings ships and Alyssa Sutherland as Princess Aslaug, Ragnar’s new wife.

Joining the cast for season three are Lothaire Bluteau (The Tudors) as Emperor Charles of France, a powerful man who views battling the Vikings as spiritual and earthly; Kevin Durand (The Strain) as The Wanderer, a mysterious man who is not what he seems; and Morgane Polanski (The Ghost) as Princess Gisla, the elegant, self-possessed daughter of Emperor Charles and his most trusted advisor and Ben Robson (Dracula: The Dark Prince) as Kalf, Lagertha’s trusted second in command

VIKINGS is created and written by Michael Hirst – one of the premier historical story-tellers in the industry (Academy-Award winning film Elizabeth; and the Emmy and Golden Globe nominated series The Tudors).

HISTORY® has picked up a 10-episode third season of VIKINGS. Season three is currently in production in Ireland and is slated to return in 2015.
