Do not try and clean the Jersey. You are better to leave it framed the way it is. When something is framed and has a COA and you try to do anything, it can alter the price more than if you leave it just the way it is. There is too much of a chance to damage the materia or cause further issues. Hope all is well!
better to leave ut alone, that is what i thought. if framed, and it is still visable or slightly visable, would that reduce the item since it is a limited edition, exclusive piece or it wouldnt matter?
Some people may try to bargin it down in value, but if it was done before it was framed I would never touch it. The problem with collectables is the market is very soft because of the economy, so people are going to use any means possible to get the best price, plus I have found even with a book value, the piece is only worth what a collect is willing to pay for it. That is why the auction is the best way of selling it.
could i ask 1 more question? you said if it was done before it was framed, you would never touch it. when you say never touch it, do you meant to try to clean it or never touch it meaning you would never buy it? I understand the other part you said about people trying to use it to get the best price.
I mean I would not try to clean it. I have had that problem and just left it as is. Sometimes trying to fix a line turns into more problems like an ink bleed, which would really devalue the items. I think you are safer to leave it the way it is. Joan
