Put the card in a jar with a fabric softener sheet. It will absorb the smell.

Think of all the different types of people who collect cards. Now, imagine what some of their hygiene habits are? Let your mind wander....





....disgusting, isn't it?

I smoke, but I don't smoke in the house, much less around my cards. Those things are flammable!

Has that been used yet to back out of a trade? "Sorry, but I accidentally set fire to a stack of Luck/RG3 autos..."

Eww man it is terrible!!! I got two cards from an SCF member and for some reason ...I smell the cards that I get. Anyway, it was like straight up cigg smoke and I gagged something serious! ...and no, I dont know why I smell them, but its kind of like new shoes... Now though I keep it to fresh packs only.

It's cold season, so smell isn't an issue, but I do get sick of seeing pubes in scans and top-loaders. It's effing gross.

Yeah. I had one so bad when I opened the bubble mailer I started coughing bad (me and cigarettes dont mix well), I had to throw half the cards out because even with the fabric softener method it wouldnt work.

I'll admit I will smell a fresh pack of chrome, it's like gasoline I just like the smell. But I have never smelled a card someone sent.

Come on man, how the hell are you going to act like you don't smell the cards you get. I don't hold it up to my face and smell it like it's a pair of panties or something, but when I get a shipment in, I gotta take a whiff. If it smells like ciggs or something gross I won't even put it in my collection. You ever smell those panini retail cards man.... NASTY!

Kinda like poking holes in the bottom of a 20oz soda bottle, stuffing it with dryer sheets then blowing your exhale weed smoke through it out the dorm window

Not like I've done that or anything, I'm just guessing

I've received some mailers that were so bad I could smell them before I opened the mailbox. I opened the mailer outside and feared bringing the card inside even after throwing away the penny sleeve and top loader.

All smokers should die at once so that we could breath easier.

Like that pun?

Could lower health costs too.

dryer sheet + rubber band + TP/papertowel cardboard roll

hell, my dorm was off campus (privately owned) and I was screwing the RA's girlfriend. Rules weren't exactly followed or enforced.
