Cleaning off a card?
I just pulled a game worn Vernon Wells Allen and ginter card from a 2012 pack I found at target, and there is a small crusted spot of some substance on the card. Does anyone have any ideas as to how to safely remove it?

Try using a cotton swab.

Ryan, I am very leery about messing with a card's surface. Are you planning on selling it? If not, don't worry about it.
The only cards I'll ever touch are chrome cards, which are notorious for spotting when they are produced. A polishing cloth, if used carefully, will help remove that.
Do you have a scan of the card in question?Collecting pre-war, vintage and modern baseball cards.

Not at the moment no... But I do plan on keeping it. It's on the surface and not the cloth though, thankfully.
