Restoring a Card
Recently I recieved a selection of bad conditioned cards. With problems such as:
- Mould (small specks)
Are there any way to restore or improve the condition of a card by methods? Any suggestions, ideas or proved techniques would be much appreciated.

Brass cleaner does a great job on holos so I've heard...

a small amount of surface mold can be killed with a bit of bleach and water.
They could get wet though.
If cards get wet put em between wax paper and in a big book (phone book) and weight ontop. that should keep em from curling.
Same thing if you glue em to fix peeling.
As a collectable you will be disapointed. but as a playable cars in a sleve you should be ok.

I find that a bit of rubbing alcohol on a soft cloth gets quite a bit of grime off these cards that are in this shape.
