What I bought compared to what I got - georgehenrycollector - 06-29-2012 11:49 AM

Bought me this awesome oddball item off ebay:

This what I got

Luckily its just one. The other has dinged corners but I expected that since they are pics. The mailer was not bent or damaged. It almost seems as if they were forced into the mailer. All items were loose in the bag so that didn't help either.

Anyone have any ideas on how to fix the bend?

Ouch that sucks, idk why its bent, the envelope looks to be big enough to hold it

It came in a bubble mailer loose. The one on bottom is a tony fiametta auto. That one came in perfect shape.

Exactly which is why I would like to fix it. I have put a comic book on top of it in the hopes I can slowly get it back into a flat position. I am afraid if I throw it in a frame or under a heavier book that it would make a crease. Don't know if this is true mind you. So if anyone has any experience fixing these or ideas please let me know.

Hmm I may do that. I really want to keep them and not have to send them back.

That sucks man. Try the old encyclopedia trick. Put like 3 heavy books on it for awhile

I have an old wedding photo that's bent around the same size that I tried that with. It didn't work. I'm curious to find out if the low steam works. Keep us up to date.
