To Peel or not to Peel (aka Golden Mailday)

I fought the urge to call this post "From now on, we'll all be taking golden showers" but couldn't resist mentioning it. A couple recent acquisitions in my current parallel madness phase I am going though. Really nice looking cards, but I am not thrilled with now they scan, this was the best one with the scanner lid open, any tips on scanning refractors?


  1. Besides the coating sticker your scans came out nicely. As far as peeling or not I have always left my cards unpeeled besides some mystery refractors I pulled back in the 1990s but when I look to purchase cards I don't care if they still have the coating sticker.

  2. I didn't know about leaving the scanner lid open. I'll have to try that sometime. I think sometimes it might actually be better to take a photo of some cards.
