I threw a few cards in the sun at the beginning of the year as part of my research on fading experiments. The best result was the '91 Fleer that's since made the rounds. But here's another mod that also turned out pretty cool:
The design opens up without the blast of yellow behind the diamond hole.
No surprise, but yellow turns out to be the easiest color to bleach away in the sun. So yellow-forward cards like '91 Fleer and the '88 Topps All-Star subset take to modifying the best.
Thanks for reading another year of Baseball Card Breakdown. I appreciate it. Happy New Year! Any of you swapping in a new wallet card this year?
