TTM Success - Pat Neshek
I had been pre-treating some chrome and Finest cards with a pencil top eraser and have gotten pretty decent results. However, I had heard that baby powder worked really well on chromes, so I figured I would give it a shot. So, this card was put in a ziploc bag with a little baby powder, then wiped clean with a wash cloth. As you can see, the auto turned out pretty nice, and didn't bubble at all. Not bad. I think I'll probably stick with baby powder for the chrome and Finest cards. I do have some that were rubbed with an eraser coming up in a few future posts, so a comparison can be made.
Neshek (b. 1980) has played in the majors since 2006 (skipping the 2009 season) for the Twins, Padres, A's, Cardinals and Astros. He has a career record of 28-19 with an ERA of 2.93 and 378 strike outs.
I mailed to Neshek on November 23 and got the cards back on December 3, for a 10-day TAT.
