I have seen Topps with glosscoat that yellows back into the late 70's. Some are cards I got in packs at the time that have been stored with cards also bought in packs that didn't yellow. (As well as varying degrees of gloss, which I should study at some point, but studying something that's mostly clear isn't easy)

Not a chemist but the yellowing may be due to chemical reactions over time between the cards and the plastic types of graded holders, sleeves and top loaders, not to mention in the box may stay white because there is nothing to react to...
Successful B/S/T deals with asoriano, obcbobd, x2dRich2000, eyecollectvintage, RepublicaninMass, Kwikford, Oneofthree67, jfkheat and scottglevy so far.

I wasn't aware. I view every forum as having different members. I don't know where I might find the best answers to my question.
IMO "forum shopping" is when someone either doesn't get the answer they want so they ask on another forum, or when someone posts on 10 forums but doesn't participate in the discussion.

Has anyone noticed any "yellowing" on any other Topps Tiffany issues? My 84s and 86s all appear non-yellowed.

I have the '84 Topps Tiffany set and no issues with yellowing, and they reside in a binder. Enjoying this thread btw.

For the record, I authorize you to post the "same question" on 100 different forums.
Says the guy who just asked, and had, his account deleted. Don't worry, no one is following you, just don't look back LOL.....

It's called toning.

The N172 and N173 Old Judges weren't originally sepia.
