    hopefully someone might have an answer

    How do you get a card autographed that the card is like those prizm cards or the picture is really glossy that the ink would smear off?
    I was thinking of some kind of white clear tape. almost like the ones on certified autograph cards from the manufacture.
    thanks in advance

    rub a pink eraser or put some baby powder all over them. Takes off the gloss but still looks shiny.

    I sporadically graph the Hillsboro Hops and this year the new Portland Pickles! I need 7 more trade completed so I can offer 50/50's (legitimately)

    Just so you know when I place baby powder on a card I rub it on the gloss with a tissue and then wipe it clean. I am sure that players would not be too happy opening an envelope and having white powder fall out of it. I just wanted to explain a little better and wish you the best of luck on your autos! I really wish someone would bring back those matte cards that Fleer had in the mid 1990's!!!

    I use a white eraser (widely available at Target or Walgreens or other stores), and erase the whole card on a flat surface, and then wipe the card on denim jeans. This has worked for me for years for IP autos and TTM autos on glossy cards.
