    Why do people say drug and smoke free trading and cards?

    I don't smoke or anything. Why do people say this? Does smoke affect the cards? How does it?

    Smoking yellows cardboard borders as well - sometimes I've gotten cards with originally white borders that drastically changed color. My parents used to smoke years ago, and it's amazing how yellow everything turned - books, cards, paper, etc.

    Cards from smokers STINK and if they spend enough time with them they will get damaged (ie stained) so I'm guessing the people highlight this fact because it is a positive and saves people from answering that question if people ask them by having it in their signature.

    Yep, I'm a smoker myself but I only smoke outside my house and if I'm about to touch cards (open a box etc...) I always wash my hands before hand.

    Don't know if you're at all familiar with the Allen & Ginter sets, but they are a good example of what can happen to cards that are exposed to smoke. The backs, especially the 2010s, are a great white color, but one lot I got in from a guy who smoked (didn't know it at the time), the backs were all a pale tan, and you could definitely smell the smoke on them too

    Yup, cards in top loaders that smell like smoke sucks big time. All it takes is one card to smell like smoke to make a whole collection smell like crap.
