Full Version: Autograph fading
You're currently viewing a stripped down version of our content. View the full version with proper formatting.
I have a collection of autographed football cards of all the starting members of the Green Bay Packers Super Bowl teams of SB XXXI and XXXII. I obtained most through the mail and in person. For the ones I could not get - I would purchase inserted authentic autograph cards.
I have had them on display in an enviromently controlled house and out of direct sunlight.
I have noticed at least 6 of the autographs are fading away. And these are all insert cards.
Anybody have any opinion on what I should do with these to stop the fading? Without putting into a box and storing them.
They are in 4-screw down holders.
I plan to do the same for the SB XLV team - so I don't want to find the stuff faded 15 years down the road

Thanks for any input

Black ink will fade much faster than blue, are they signed in black?

You do know that green bay didn't win Super Bowl XXXII, don't you?
