I agree - the scrapbook finds you want are the ones where the cards are minty fresh; where the scrapbook preserved the cards as pack fresh as possible. When you have scrapbooking done much later, as is the case with cards that are well worn, I would guess there would be back problems as well.

Attach a few really sharp T206s with really bad back damage to an old piece of paper and then sell them as scrapbooks on ebay. It'd be really easy to do. People bid high on the hope and dream that they'll soak off easy and expose a Carolina Brights back...

I did soak the one page which for the most part was rather clean. They were all Sweet Caporal or Piedmont but had two Sovereign. Only a few cards had major creases while there were more W/O than W/ small wrinkles.

The other page will eventually be a display piece so I need to find a good frame for it.
