Posted By: <b>Dan Bretta</b><p>Marty, Soaking an Old Judge is a no-no..you can not soak an OJ without the possibility that the photo will separate from the backing. The one you linked to is not really in the type of condition that I would even think it worth it anyway.

Posted By: <b>Frank Wakefield</b><p>If you win that card, please do not soak it. The card would be worse off. Dan is correct.<br /><br />I kinda like the back. The front is a bit dirty, and it could be improved a bit. But not by soaking. Talk to Kevin S.
