Default 1985 Topps Collectors' Edition (Tiffany) cards

Do 1985 Topps Tiffany cards have a yellowish tint to them?

I just bought one and it is yellowish. Is that damage or is that how they are?

That's kind of how they are. I think the extra gloss may have turned them yellower over time than the regular set cards. So you may have some with little yellow and some with heavier yellow.

So is the yellowing due to damage that all the cards have? If I had opened a set in 1985 would they have been white?

I am asking since I am wondering if I could find one that has less yellowing.

Never mind; you've posted it on so many different message boards I'm sure you'll get enough answers.

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.

Just kidding. Makes sense to me to get as me to get as many opinions as possible. I have a run of the Tiffany sets and update sets but have never opened the sealed boxes so have no idea if any yellowing is a result of light or occurs in the dark as well.

I was thinking about picking up an update set too. Someone just sent me pictures of the cards outside the box. They are lily-white.

Apparently it depends on how they are stored.

What is weird is it seems all the Clemens that have been graded have tanning. Even the PSA 10. I guess any amount of light turns them.

I would recommend you give one forum a chance. If you don't get a satisfactory answer in a week, post to a different one. But as many of us are on all three boards you posted to (or was it even more?), you're just as likely to get the same answers no matter where you post.
