A Little About Comic Book Storage BagsWritten by AAA-Collectables
We store comics to keep them valuable. Air pollution, ultra violet light, dirt and oil from fingers as well as rough handling all contribute to deterioration of a comic. Storing a comic book properly is essential to keeping it valuable. There are 3 major storage components to proper comic storage. They are comic bags, comic backing boards, comic boxes.
Putting your comic in a properly sized comic book bag not only keeps dust, dirt and finger oils off comic book surface, but helps prevent scuffing which can bring down value of a comic book considerably. The three most popular comic bag materials are polyethylene, polypropylene and Mylar. New Comic Bags, Regular Comic Bags, Dell & Silver Age Comic Bags and Golden Age Comic Bags as well as Treasury Comic Bags all are available in all three of these materials. All three materials are considered to be ARCHIVAL - Meaning that there is nothing in composition of material that can contribute to breakdown or destruction of comic book being stored in it.
