    1996 Select Certified Red Question

    Quick Question... is there an easy way to tell if the 1996 Select Certified Certified Red cards are "peeled" vs "unpeeled"? It's not like the '97 Pinnacle Certified or finest with the words running across. Here is the card in question (I feel like this should be easy to tell). Any help would be appreciated (I feel like a moron that I cant tell)!

    No 96 has a coating, not even the mirrors.

    ". Like the regular cards, every one of these parallels was issued with a thin protective film, or skin, over their sensitive reflective surfaces. Removing this so-called skin is a delicate and dangerous process, but the skins tend to dull the appearance of the cards, and once removed, the cards shimmer with an undeniable luster, each more brilliant than the last.

    They do, but I haven't jumped off the edge to have one with and one wo one this one. Because you really can't tell and there is no text, I'm holding out on going for a second version.

    I picked up a 96 mirror blue Belle card for a great deal, and when I got it it had an ugly scuff along the bottom. Really debated just leaving it, but painstakingly peeled it off and glad I did. Made a huge difference in the appearance of the card. Wasn't an easy task, took a lot of patience I dont usually have. But would never have done it without the scuff. Personally I don't there's a huge between pell on or off unless there's scratches or scuffs on the peel.

    What's the easiest and safest way to peel them? I have a mirror gold I would love to peel. Would it help to use a blow dryer?

    I took out one of my 96 Certified Thome cards and thought about peeling it but decided to stick with shrimp.

    I haven't tried yet, but I'd practice on some random base cards 1st. If I can find some random cards, I'll test a few.

    1996 Select Certified Red Question

    The hardest part is getting it started. Once you have that small amount started, the rest goes very easily. I've started near a corner with success. Go very slow and practice on commons. It's not for the faint of heart, but the finished result is just beautiful.

    The Ryno above appears to still have it's peel.

    Correct, they are tough to get started. Best thing is to practice on base cards or common APs. Beware, it is easy to split into the paper layers on the card.

    I'd agree with this. I looked closely at all the corners and had one that looked like it had a little separation, and went from there.
