Use the White Glove Treatment When Handling Vintage Baseball Cards

While I continued my research for Safe at Home, my wiki dedicated to the display and preservation of baseball cards, I came across some handling tips. One stated that when handling paper based artifacts, including vintage baseball cards, to wear white cotton gloves. They help to reduce the oils and dirt from your hand getting on the cards which can have damaging effects. I also found an article that said white cotton gloves can impede your dexterity so be very careful when handling your vintage memorabilia. I wouldn’t be afraid to through out your gloves after they get a little worn – they’re cheap enough to replace. When washing use light detergent and let air dry – never use bleach or fabric softeners.

Buy White Gloves on eBay to protect your baseball cards when handling!
