Default Holy Grail ?

Posted By: Glen V

With over half the known Darbys suffering from tack holes, smoke, and fire damage, if ever there was a good case for restoring (or at least conserving) baseball cards, this is it. Maybe not complete restoration, but at least enough to stabilize each card. I'd be scared to pick up an un-restored Darby for fear of it breaking in half or it disintegrating into paper fibers.

Of course I'm a little biased since my lone Darby happens to be restored. The impossible to find issue #7 of VCBC had an article on card restoration. The paper conservator spent nearly 50 hours on the Darby card.
