Is cold bad for Pokemon cards?

Temperature doesn’t affect paper / wood as much as humidity does. Low humidity causes shrinkage while high humidity causes woods to expand. This especially affects foils since the paper will shrink while the plastic foiling remains the same which will warp cards.
What humidity should cards be stored at?
Temperatures. Playing Cards prefer a 68 F (20 C) and a relative humidity range of 30%-40%. They can be stored in temperatures as low as 30-40 F (-1 through 4 C), as long as the humidity stays constant between 30-40%. Again, dehumidifiers can reduce the moisture in a room or storage area and are inexpensive.
How can I protect my card from moisture?
If you keep the cards in a sealed environment, silica packs should do the job. Otherwise look into getting a dehumidifier to remove moisture from the whole room.
