Buhner Book Buster

How do you remove a card from a magazine/team program if the cards are not perforated?


Last year I picked up this 1988 Donruss Team Collection book, inside there are three pages of nine cards each and a fourth page that is the entire Stan Musial puzzle. The cards are the same exact card that is in the base 1988 Donruss set, including checklist number, so there is no difference except that the ones I have seen hand cut usually have a little bit of a white border around the card.

My question now, do I cut the card out and put  it to my Buhner box or do I leave the card in the book but still add it to my Buhner PC spreadsheet? I have seen hand cut cards show up, but I bought the book for $3.99 and the card usually run around that price.


  1. Personally I would leave it in the book. Of course I would then still be looking to add one later that somebody else cut out.

  2. I'm the guy who goes out and buys two books. One to keep intact... and one to cut up. As for actually removing the card, I'd start by taking each page out carefully with an X-Acto knife, then using my handy-dandy paper cutter to cut them into individual cards.

    1. Fuji said word-for-word what I was going to say. Except the part about buying two book. Cool find, though.

  3. After reading the comments, this is what I decided to do, I will eventually look for another copy but leave this book intact.
