Default Can this stain be removed?

I just recently bought this card. Card is gorgeous except for what I believe are some stains. Are these indeed stains? And would they be removed through soaking?

I would think a soaking would improve the appearance...whether the whole stain will disappear...who knows?

Silly question but, has anybody ever added a chemical (say like OxyClean) when soaking a card?

Hi No Name,

Please tell us why you would do this?

It's a PSA2.

Most soak to gain something and its usually a grade jump that guys are looking for.

Personally I would leave it just as you found it and if you want to experiment with soaking cards, do it on a raw card with stains.

Craig,

That is a PSA 2 with no ST qualifier on it.. so if the stain is removed it could be bumped to a PSA 4.

I disagree. There is paper loss on the back. If it were mine, I might also try soaking it to remove the stan and enhance the appearance, but the paper loss should still keep it from grading any higher than a 2.

You have to really zoom in on it, but it's there. Just to the right of the "E" in CIGARETTE. Notice how the outside line of the frame breaks.

Again, still a very nice card and I would try to soak it as well.

I would leave it alone....it's on the back in a small area not affecting anything, for the most part....and the front stain might get lighter but I don't think it would come all the way off. Just my opinion and good luck if you go for it..

Nice card!

To answer your questions, I do believe they are stains and soaking would help lighten them up. Like others have said, the stain won't disappear but the card will be more visually appealing.

If you keep your collection encapsulated, I'd recommend leaving it alone. If you like to keep raw (in top loaders or binders etc), I'd recommend cracking & soaking it.

This is a water stain. Soaking will not remove a water stain. The outside of the stain is called a tide line. In most cases we are able to remove the tide line, then the inside stain will follow ( in most cases). We have done many like these in the past- also is there ink on the back or pencil ??.

We can remove pencil and fountian Pen. Please see our website gonewiththestain.com-- thank you again.
