Years ago, I socked away a whole bunch of new sets of Daryl's Cardboard Chameleons. I loved the trick, plus at the time I thought the green Sahara backs and the Jerry's Nugget cards might be cool to have one day (little did I know :) )
I decided to put the routine back in my working set recently, but when I opened the stash (which had been stored in a plastic box, the cards no longer slide or handle well. (not surprising since they are about 20 years old)
Fortunately, I've got lots of alternative cards I could use, but I'd hate to toss these old cards and their cool back designs.
Do you have an tips on how to restore these cards to working condition? (They were new when I put them in storage). I could use what passes for fanning powder these days, but I haven't been real impressed with how powdered cards handle as they get gummy pretty fast (maybe I have sweaty hands?)
In any event, any tips would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
