Mr. Pinball Tip:

Moisture is the big reason many backglasses have flaking. This moisture can come from many sources. The most common source is from condensation. This most often comes from moving a cold game into a warm house. To avoid this keep the game warm, or let it warm up gradually, in stages.

Note that condensation can come from other sources as well. I know one individual that removed his backglass on his 50s game and laid it, ink-side down, on the grass while he worked on the game. The moisture from the grass lifted about 20% of the ink from what used to be a perfect glass. Also, keep the game away from dryer vents, hot tubs, and other heavy producers of water vapor.
