Anyone know if Goo Gone will remove price stickers from vintage cards?

yes but it will take off some the card as well. the black of the card will start to turn white. so be careful.

I would suggest leaving the old price stickers on the vintage cards. It is part of the nostalgia.

I myself love seeing , for example, the old Child World, Kmart, Gold Circle, and various drug store stickers still on them.

i have used a little heat from a blow drier to get them off, but it does not always work. then for the old residue and to clean the whole card i use a Renaissance Wax. It can be expensive and hard to find , but it brings any old card stock back to life and restore that 'new' look to the card. again practice on a spot first it you use too much or rub to long it will remove some color to.good luck. goo be gone is tooo strong for this.

Personally i would leave the sticker as is as vader121 says. Its part of the history. As much as I like carded vintage figues, if there was a sticker still on the box -I'd leave it. No point in damaging the card.

Besides if you have a figure that's worth hundreds and the price sticker says $2 that would kinda make me laugh everytime I looked at it.

I read a story about some guy with a high AFA vinyl cape jawa that had the price sticker on it still for only a couple dollars originally and now that thing is worth thousands.
