Allen & Ginter relics/autos
anyone else take the frame off? One of the guys at my LCS told me I was crazy for doing this but I think it looks awesome. Not sure if this has been covered before. Thoughts?

the front or back of it literally just peels right off at the corners, its like they wanted to make it easy for you to do this

Looks great, but you would get Authentic-Altered at best if you wanted to get them graded. That's the only downside.

RE: Allen & Ginter relics/autos
yeah I don't see the difference between removing the frame from these and removing the coating off of the old finest cards. the surface was graded differently on those, so these should be graded separately from the frame just fine

RE: Allen & Ginter relics/autos
I won't do it with this years stuff but did it with a few from last year and earlier because I thought the frames were hideous.

RE: Allen & Ginter relics/autos
this years frames are a lot better as far as not having the card bounce around, but I do it regardless just cause I love the mini holders

RE: Allen & Ginter relics/autos
I agree with the LCS guy. But if you don't care about resale value, and you like them better without the frame, they are your cards so do whatever you like with them. My opinion is that you have completely destroyed the card (something that is not the case if you peel the cover off of a Finest card). Just something to think about.

RE: Allen & Ginter relics/autos
I agree with iujapander. I mean, if you like it better without the frame, that's great, but I'm not sure people would buy them.
