Default Moisture in Safety Deposit Boxes

Posted By: Brad Green

I wanted to let you guys know that I visited my safe deposit box today and found no signs of moisture. As a precaution, I placed a silica gel pack in the box. The cards have been in the safe deposit box for about six months and today was the first time that I went to visit them. Six months is not that long, but I really have no feeling for how long it takes the hydrogen and oxygen in the air to form moisture.

When two of those hydrogens meet up with one of those oxygens, watch out!

I have had my cards in safety deposit boxes for years and never had a problem at all.

Most banks have at least a minimally effective HVAC system...that will include humidity control that keeps ambient levels between 35%-50% RMH.

Paper and cardboard are real happy in that zone.

better to worry about what your home safe is doing..

if your home has no such control....I'd be much more concerned there...regardless of climate

edited to add:
I do occasionally put my hygrometer from my cigar humidor in my safe deposit box and home vault...just to be sure...but those monte #2's always want it back

Most of my cards are in SGC holders. Does anyone know if this will protect them from any moisture?

I agree, however, personally I will buy a BVG graded card and feel more comfortable with the grade than a GAI one. Those Beckett slabs are almost impenetrable though. I literally have to use a hammer to crack 'em. I would call all slabs "moisture resistant" and not "moisture proof." I do think that with normal care, and kept out of any light rays, that our cards are going to maintain themselves for another 100 yrs.....after that I don't really care....
