Default Poll--- Do you smell your cards?

Just wondering how many of us like to smell a nice raw card as soon as you have it in hand? Just curious as I know I will at home but have never done it in public setting such as a card show at the local mall

Have never so much as sniffed a card. Something about sniffing things that other people have touched grosses me out.

By far the weirdest poll as of yet.

Ha I definitely do with old cards like T206 or N28s. That musty smell is usually a good indicator that it's authentic.

I do it just to check for smoke smell. Ironically, even on my T cards I don't want them to smell like cigarettes.

Still remember my first sniffing - a pack of 1967 Philly Gum with a Dan Reeves. Something about the fresh Topps cardboard with gum smell. In fact, I might have to buy a vintage pack, just for the reminder.

I'll confess to having a good bit of spare time on my hands, but have never thought to use it for sniffing cards, or much else for that matter.

Yes, especially CJ's which are often bleached.

I'm a second-hand sniffer for about 60 years. Why would I stop now?
