Posted By: <b>Chris Counts</b><p>With all the talk about set registries, grading companies and the eternal search for the perfect untouched card, I couldn't resist a thread about tape-stained cards. I would have put it on the main thread, but the reality is that most tape-stained cards come from the 1950s, and I am not feeling in the mood to be berated by the pre-WWII crowd for an off-topic post.<br /><br />Some of my favorite cards have tape stains on them. In fact, because tape was often used to afix the cards to scrapbooks, the tape inadvertantly kept the cards in great shape. When the tape eventually deteriorated, the cards were left with just a stain. And the "armpit" collector, like myself, is left with a nice, sharp-cornered old card that can be had for a great price ...<br /><br /><img src="http://i41.photobucket.com/albums/e278/ccmcnutt/55aaron.jpg">
