Just out of curiosity, does anyone use the larger ComiCare (or another brand) bags to store their hardcover AD&D books?  I wasn't aware they were available until recently, and have been considering putting some of my older and more valuable ones in them.  Also, they're advertised as being large enough to fit 1" thick boxed sets; does anyone use them for that?

I find 2000AD sized comic bags to be just perfect for this - along with a suitable backing board.

I'm using Ultra.Pro "role playing size bags".  No PVC and acid free.

They work well for me

I'm also using the new Ultra Pro "Role Playing Size Bags" that are a whopping 10x13.  They are pretty awesome. Anyone getting one of my Warcon tournament copies can check these out personally, it's what I shipped them in  :wink:

Mike,

Where do you order these from (online)?

Thanks!

If its any use, comic shops sell them.

Have any of you encountered the Volstor storage system? I use the magazine sized boxes for my RPG's and supplements. (I use a shed load of the comics sized ones too). As a former librarian I can assure you that they are made from archival safe plastics, and as such negate the need for bags at all.

You can check them out here:
