How to scratch 1981 Topps Scratch offs?
 
Has anyone scratched off the 1981 Topps Scratch-Offs? I have tried a penny, a quarter, edge of a stapler, a piece of wood, a Q-tip with alcohol and one with peroxide. None work. A friend wants some that are already scratched off and I have a lot of dups. Thanks.

Never tried, probably for the best.

The set was also available with no scratch off stuff, that might be the best way to go.

Thanks, didn't know that. This is what we probably are seeing when we see ones that appear to be scratched off.

This probably belongs in the hockey card forum.

Not sure why, maybe because I didn't specify 1981 Topps baseball Scratch Offs.

I think my buddy and I tried to throw them in a fire pit years back. I think the covering has hardened over the years. I recall being able to scratch them in the early 80s

I think the covering has really hardened over the years. I do believe it is now almost impossible to scratch off. I have a couple more things to try before I give up.
