Question Cleaning suggestions for autograped Mike Tyson tee shirt

I have a autographed Mike Tyson Tee done in person in Vegas. I aquired it from a guy who must have hung it up in a closet in a home of HEAVY smokers. It no longer stinks, but has yellowish staining on the shoulders and collar. It was never worn or washed and I'm just not sure how to clean it????

If I just throw it in the washer will it lose value???

I think some would argue that a Mike Tyson auto would hold any value whatsover but that aside do NOT just throw it in the washing machine. I Googled "How to remove a stain"...

All About Laundry - Get the Stains Out
Stain Removal Answers to Common Care Questions

Get a Tide pen or just wash the affected part in Woolite or something very gentle. Rinse well and air dry your shirt flat.

You can wash autographed t-shirts in the washing machine. I've done it before. It's best toi wash it in cold water.

Try some Oxy Clean foam spray. That stuff works wonders on clothes stains, even though it is meant for cleaning bathrooms, kitchens, etc.
